    One of my neighbors has a truck and his mount is almost that high, and he doesn't have any problems, and I've asked him if he would prefer it to be lower, and he said it didn't make any difference. So I said ok whatever.

    yea you need to adjust that, the A frame part of that is supposed to be level to the ground. at that angle your going to go through cutting edges like you wouldnt believe and it probably wont trip the correct way either

    yes the a frame should ride parallel with the ground or your plade will either trip too easey or not at all....

    make sure you make your adjustments with the truck ballasted as you were going ploing...ie extra weight in back...sander, bloser or whatever..
    good luck

    It doesn't look too bad judging by your pic for a lifted truck. Can youy shoot a pic straight across the A-frame..like down on your knee's at ground level? I could tell a little better then.

    i have not experianced trip prob. from a un-level a-frame but the main prob is angeling.

    angle the plow all the way one direct and then set it down if both sides hit the ground at about the same time you'r o.k., and even if it doesn't as long as the blade has enough articulation in the carton and frame so both sides are on the ground your still o.k.
