    is it possible to tweak the v70 pump to gain a couple more inches of lift?

    I have never worked any meyer with v70 but if you are not hitting the stacking stops shorten the chains. If you are hitting the stacking stops not much you can do about it. I don't recommend removing stacking stops.

    thanks kimber. i don't think i'm hitting the stacking stops when fully raised, the blade will go higher than fully raised when i stack.

    Most blades will go up more when stacking even if the are against the stacking stops. It is just taking up the slop in pivot points and the mount.

    it's a meyer super-v ld mounted on a nissan titan. not much sag at all really.. i've got a leveling kit and timbrens on the truck. when i look at it in the raised position, it just doesn't look like it's as high as it should be.

    How do you like the LD? Post some pics of it. Running any ballast? Ballast can help keep the front of the truck up.

    so far i'm loving it, but i've only used it for one storm. just got it a couple weeks ago. i'm 350 lbs worth of sand bags in the bed for ballast. i put some pics in a thread i started in the import trucks section.
