    1) How much ground clearance do you loose with the mounting frame (plow off) with a Blizzard 800 in relation to say a Boss or a Wester? Is it like most other modern plows today where you barely notice it on the front of the truck?

    2) Does the 800 have a chain that lifts the plow or a piston?

    It is a big mount like the Boss plows. I sits maybe 12-13 inches off the ground.
    It has a piston to lift it up.

    Western wins hands down for best mount and clearence. The Blizzard is low but not as bad as Boss.
    The Ultra on anything but a GM product is way up there, No worrys off road with the Western.

    Do you think the Blizzard mount will adversly affect very mild off roading? I use the truck in Northern Maine for a week of deer hunting every year and drive an extensive network of logging roads. Some of which are pretty washed out.

    You will lose some off road ability but a logging road is probable not a problem.
