    What do you mean "Ultramount receiver extension plates"??

    Are you trying to extend the length of the plow??

    Did you try reconfiguring the plow first. If it isn't reconfigured to #4 then that should take care of the bad angle.

    Where did u get the plow? If new they should have set it up properly! You can access the mechanics guide on the western website or I'm sure Twinman can post the page in relation to configuring the plow.

    It's not to hard to do. Easier on a newer plow. Glad to help.

    Becareful because in the process the upright with the pump and lights will be free to slide around! Pinch hands and fingers!

    Sal How high was your mount from the ground? how hard was the reconfiguration? I'm going to have to do the same!... I have a 2'' leveling kit 35'' tires and I have a 8' Western...

    Configuration...... Stacking Stop
    13.0" – 14.5" 1...... No
    14.5" – 16.0" 2...... No
    16.0" – 17.5" 3...... Yes
    17.5" – 19.0" 4...... Yes

    u may need to watch out if you dont have the blocks

    the a frame could hit your lift ram when stacking
