Fisher Plow Height When Raised

    I have a fisher minute mount plow on a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500. Is there a specific height the plow should be off the ground when it's fully raised? Mine seems rather low, roughly 10 inches. When it's raised, the A frame comes within a half inch of touching the attachment arm, so if I were to shorten the lift chain, idk if it would go much higher, or if it would do some damage.
    FYI a, this is my first time owning my own plow, just got the truck with the plow over the summer. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    if its 10" from the bottom of the cutting edge id say ur just about right a good rule of thumb is if u have it angled all the way to one side and ur not touching the ground ur good

    Ok I guess I'm good then, cause I know it definetly doesn't touch the ground when angled all the way. Im sure it's fine, it just seems like every other plow I see on the road sits a lot higher than mine.
