    Wow you did a nice job of custom fitting that thing. Does it function fully without problem?

    I am having a little trouble with the plow valves but that has nothing to do with the modifications. Aside from the valves, it works flawlessly. I even plowed some gravel to make sure it wasn't flexing at all. Not sure how it could though, that's all 1/4" thick, 3" angle, welded at every place it meets up, front and back. -Phillip

    BTW, thanks for the complements guys. It all fell into place pretty well. No big things in my way. With this setup, I don't really loose much, if any ground clearance. -phillip

    great job with the modifications, but i can't see the lift kit being practical for a plow truck. (don't get me wrong i like lifted trucks, just not for plowin snow)

    You're right, it's not practical, but I already had the truck, it wasn't doing anything, so I tossed a plow on it. I didn't want to drop it again because I would have had to buy new driveshafts, pitman arm, steering arm, etc. plus i would have had to redo the spring hangers on the front. The way this truck is set up now, the plow frame doesn't hang below the springs so it won't hang up on things like they do on most trucks.
    My only regret is it's hard to see the plow, but then again, the plow is hard to see on all trucks I've plowed with.

    Barely. I have to wire the garage door up about 2 inches above where it normally stops. :dizzy: -Phillip
