    I have a 2500 dodge hemi with a VX95 on it and it doesnt lift very high. I was hoping some of you might know how far off the ground the cutting edge would be when the plow is striaght and up and how far off the ground the tips of the plow are after its V-ed back? I cant see how i could make it lift more with out a longer hydraulic cylinder my chains are good I think. Just woundering if i have it set up right. I do have a leveling kit in and heavy duty shocks. Thanks for the help.

    Make sure the headgear prop rod is folded down. Other than that adjust the chain slack.

    Theres no way your seeing Boss V's 10-12" off the ground at the ends of the wings folded back. I have a 8'2" & a 9'2" both on Gm's torsion bars cranked, leveling kits & timbrens and the 8'2" sits 6" at most.
    Unless your seeing them on lifted trucks...?

    Tthe truck I seen are f350s with spacers in the frount. I adjusted my chains it help for sure just got done plowing with it. I was able to get around bettor. Have any of you tryed to fill the gap in the middle of the VX the snow was very light and i had a bit of trails left over. I have about a inch space when the plow is straight.
