    I have heard of people rigging their plows up to have down pressure. I would assume some how wiring into the mounting switch. Could someone please puint me in the right direction on how to do this. Thanks

    Either hire a fat person to sit on your plow or buy a Snoway plow.Seriously,I don't think it's easily possible or we all would be doing it.It would require a custom 2 way lift cylinder and different valving.

    It would not require a new lift piston, the RT3's already have a two way piston, how do you think it mounts itself? Im not sure exactly how it would be done, but i can deffinately see that it could be done.
