Anyway, our Sheriff wanted me to purchase a plow for the truck so that we didn't have to contract out our Jail parking lots anymore. I tried advising him that hanging a plow on that 1/2ton truck wasn't the best idea, but would work. I ended up purchasing a 7'wide Hiniker plow. That's all I ever used with past work and love their stuff.
So my question. This truck with the plow on the front sags pretty bad in the front end. I have to pull up on small ramps I built to remove the plow so that I can get it high enough to get the stand down.
I was wondering if a leveling kit in the front end of some sort would help with bringing that front end up? I don't envision having this truck forever, but for the time that we do have it I would like to try and bring the front end up.
Any suggestions on what I can do would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Yes...funny you mention this as I bought a front "level" kit for my other truck for just this reason...plow. The maker actually markets the kit I bought as a fix for what you are describing. Its a 1 inch lift for the front and gives that little bit of lift needed.
Its made by Daystar...Item Number: KF09115BK

You can of course go higher if you want to a 2 or 2.5 inch.
