Is my MVP plus high enough?

    I have a 8'6" MVP plus mounted on a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. I have the plow installed according to western's manuals and I notice that when I have my plow in the V position, it drags on big bumps, driveways, turning up on hills/coming down on hills, and on sidewalks. Is this a Chevy thing that makes it ride low or is it installed wrong? I have a leveling kit on the front end and a 2" suspension lift on the back and use around 800 lbs of ballast in the bed (Long bed crew cab pickup) and my plow just doesn't seem like it sits as high as some of my friend's Boss V-plows. Can anybody tell me why this is??

    Crank the torsion bars a few turns. See if that helps

    I'm running into the same problem with my new mvp plus. My fisher xtreme v lifts a lot higher and will stack a foot higher compared to the western.
