    customer at our shop has a site delivery truck. its a 06 cab chassie flatbed. 4x4 dulley. he has a boss vplow on it. every were he goes with out plow on the plow frame digs in . he just had to pay to have a concreat drive fixed.

    he want the truck lifted to help clear this. but i told him he cant do that. as the plow will not function correctly in scoop or v position. it would throw off the angle of the blade. if he had a stright blade sytem he would be better off.

    so whats the best action to take on this truck to help fix his problem. thanks guys.

    Best answer I can give you is to get a western ultramount plow. Will never have that problem. other then that...adjust the tbars and then adjust the plow.

    Match the plow to the truck.

    I have a 2006 Chevy Stake Body in the shop with a 7.5 Ultramount that does the same thing. Check your front axle weight requirements. Add Timbrens if needed.

    V plow

    Might alos ask him about his approach to the drive.
    Straight, angled, inverted, converted?
    Incline, decline?

    I only ask these questions because just because you can plow doesn't mean you know how to plow. These are the questions I ask my customers.

    Umm how the heck is it doing that. With the ultramount, the truck side mount is 1" under the chevy bumper. Unless you still got the quick disconnect horns on the truck. :confused:

    No reason to doubt my word. Come look at it.

    Again, check your front axle rating.
    Your not THAT far away.
    Will be here till 3:00Pm tomorrow(guy is a DC Police Officer and pulls the mid shift).
    Then we will send it away fixed.

    Turn up the t bars no reason that truck should scrape anywhere.

    Yup, or get some SuspensionMaxx adjustable keys. They work great. A set of Timbrens may solve it too.
