    If I remember correctly, the recommended height to mount the two attachment pins is 10"-12" off the ground.
    On my Jeep comanche, they are about 17"-18" from CL of pins to ground. I FINALLY noticed this weekend that when the blade is pivoted either left or right, the bottom of blade is not making 100% contact to the ground- only 50%. The upper and lower frame work is touching due to the higher pin height :confused:
    Without me reinventing the wheel, could some of you post up your pictures on how you might have LOWERED your attachment pins. I should be ok with a 6" drop. Don't want to overdesign something if you have already done your homework. Thumbs Up
    Thanks guys!

    ok i lokked at the diagram of your mount- what i would do is , get 2 pieces of 3" x 5" for the sidesdrill holes out use grade 5 hardware then for the part that goes down on the inside get some heavy wall tube and cut to length use 6" grade 5 bolts through the tube and u should be ok- you could also weld the plates and tubes in place but that is up to you
