i would be willing to bet that you coud rig something up to make it work.

but i hate to say it, you should have thought about that before you lifted it

look at the under carrage for the plow there should be adjustments to lower it down then you should be fine but if there is not just sell the fisher and get a western i know they can be adjusted for lifts

My buddy plows with his gmc he just uses stock tires for plowing. He has a 8 inch suspension? ANd body lift but that dosen't matter with the plow mount. I know the guy before him had a mount made for it to be lower but i am not sure if he is still using that same under carrage or not.

BadAss, there shouldn't be a problem with plowing so long as you lenghten your lift chain and place your A-Fraim on the top holes where it connects to the push beam. May also want to think about plowing with closer to stock tires depending on what you are runing now. My old 88 Blazer did fine with 4" suspention lift and 33's on it and both my 97 CTD and 99 Quad Cab plow great, although they're stock height with 285/75/16 on them. Thumbs Up!

You should PM SuperSwamper on this board. He kept the plow on his '05 and it has I believe a 6' lift and 37's.

Plowing will be a problem, your angleing pistons should be close to level, parallel off the ground, if they are way off then when your blade is at full angle just your outer part of the push blade will touch the ground and it will wear your cutting edge crooked. I have a western plow which is adjustable as mentioned earlier but I still had to modify my mounting ears for the best angle.
Your best bet is to have your ears on your plow modified to lower the push blade and leave the upper part where it is, if i'm thinking right since I don't have a fisher but did see one done before a while back. The fisher plow great but are too heavy and they hit hard on manhole covers etc...
