    Well, we got the plow truck setup at work and went to town with the lot cleanup.

    Truck is a 2008 Chevy 2500 Ext cab Long Bed with a 7'6" Boss Superduty Trip Edge.

    Just to clarify- I did not set this truck up nor did I think this was a good idea. I can't tell you how many time's I've said to crank the torsion bars....wesport

    I know I was kind of amazed when I saw it mounted up. I need to take a picture of the mount, its literally 3-4" off of the ground. I keep telling them to crank the tbars and the don't...I'm starting to think they don't know what I'm talking about (even though the ASE Tech has a Chevy with cranked tbars)

    Check plow spec's. maybe setup incorrectly and that could be another reason why it is so low. but definitely crank the torsion bars and even add timbrens to the front.:drinkup:

    Nice truck and nice plow. But like you said they need to crank up the torsion bars.

    I wasn't plowing anything, I was sitting in my office LMAO.

    They were plowing Sand/mud that has washed down from the upper parking lot over the summer. Ended up with about 2 yards of sand pushed back up there with the plow truck.

    No weight in the bed, no tbar cranks. This is just a lot/plow truck and that is it so the plow was tossed on (by the techs) and that was it. Funny part is the truck is registered out of Florida with Florida plates. Kinda funny seeing a Florida plow truck. Anyways, I'll probably have the guys bring it in and crank the tbars since they all seem so lost on how to do it.

    That looks like crap, I would hate to see it with a real plow and not that 7'6" beginner plow. Get yourself a Ford man, that is just sad!

    cranking th t bars some weight in the bed and possible some timbrens will do the trick
