    I'm just doing a little thinking out loud here but would it be possible to convert a chain lift into a sort of direct lift?

    I was thinking of 1 1/2" X 1/4" wall tubing with adjustable heim joints on each end that would take the place of the chains.

    Anyone done this? I still have four more years to think about it because my plow is still under warranty.

    By that point in time you'll ralize you like the chain lift better anyway ;) sorry I just had to

    I don't see why this wouldn't be possible but it probably would have been a better idea to just get a direct lift from the start if that's what you really wanted
