V plow ride height question

    Installed my new 8'2'' Boss V plow on my 05 GMC 2500HD about a month ago. I love the new blade, but I was wondering what any body with similar set ups are seeing for height from the tip of the cutting edge to the ground with plow fully raised and wings retracted?
    I only have 6.5'' from edge to the ground with blade fully raised. Hate having to run with the blade straightened out so I don't scrape everywhere.

    Truck currently is leveled with 285's on stock wheels, and a set of Timberns. Air bags in the rear and 875 pounds of ballast.

    Thanks.

    I have a 9-2 vxt on a dodge 2500 and I just bump the wings out a little. Don't have to go all the way straight. It just depends on how much your front end drops when you lift.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Running the t-bars cranked up with Cognito control arms, so wings kicked out a little it is.
