    anyone have one or ideas on how to do it so that there isnt anything hanging way down when the plow isnt on the truck? last thing i want is something to get hung up on hanging off the front of the truck. i know plows are meant for stock hight trucks but i dont own anything stock hight for very long

    it depends on what plow and mount style you have. i use a plow in the winter with my truck and its lifted 4". i modified the plow mount and my bumper so i can take it off in about 10 minutes if i want to go play in the winter.

    I have a friend with an '80 Chevy 4x4 with a 6" lift and 37's. He has a Meyers plow on it. He did have to lower his brackets so the plow angles would work right, so they hang down a bit. But he still off-roads it occasionally.

    I've had my plow on several trucks, but it's a different mounting system than most plows. Just the brackets stay on and the pump and lights and plow are all a separate unit. Last 2 years and this year I had it on trucks with 4" of lift. It's adjustable... but I find that mine works best with smaller stock size tires- which look goofy but do well.

    Here you can see the plow mount brackets. In deep snow they dragged, but never came low enough to dig into dirt or hit anything with 35" tires and a 3-4" lift.
