    Hey guys, i just put my plow on myself a couple weeks ago and while every thing works excellent on it i ran into a little snag and wondering if there is a way to correct it. i mounte my new boss straight blade on my 2003 gmc 1500, and when the plow is angled to the right, the right side of the blade is alot lower, and same happens when turned to the left, the left side is lower. when i put the mount on the truck, i set it as close to 16" as possible, its in the lowest setting, and the plow goes on hassle free and comes off as well. is there any way to correct this?

    If I understand your question right. NO. Have you had a plow before?

    I am not sure if the boss pushes snow higher (stacks) but it should and if it does then.........when you have it lifted higher in the middle of the arch (straight) and then move it left or right........it will and will apear to come closer to the ground........left on left and right on right.........

    That sounds like what you have..........so different yes, bad, probly not........

    Good luck

    If it "appears" that its lower on both sides the SAME amount... then its the normal characteristic of the plow, just like Indy described.

    The Boss's generally lift higher than a Meyer so they will appear to have more "lean" to them when angled.
