Lobo ,
Usually when you go higher with the tires you also go a little wider I think I went up a couple inches but I also went wider front and rear and the rims I bought were offset more than the stock rims so it gave me a wider stance.
Although I didn't lift it and anything beyond 25 or 26's wouldn't really be any good on a trail

That's good to hear and thanks for letting me know. I decided not to buy chains and try plowing without them to see how it goes. I'd think it will work fine without them since it's a heavier ATV and the 4-wheel drive should work fine.

Well, finally got to use the snow plow, but it wasn't on snow. Had to level an area for some storage sheds and the travel trailer and did it with the quad. Worked really well and didn't take much time either. Good thing as I did the level job yesterday and it is been snowing since. Still have the plow mounted to play in the white stuff now :P

Ohhh Man ... there is just no escaping you is there :P

I was really impressed with that quad and plow. Actually cut down 18" across the backside of those sheds. Did bury the quad one time and had to yard it out of the sand with the truck.

It is horrible and it pains me deeply, but there will be a whole new shop built next month for them to enjoy afterwards.

I leveled my base for my shed also I brought in 5 tons of 1/4 granite and it work well But I did use something to put extra weight on the blade.

That reallly is a shame that the bike have to get snowed on. that was the whole purpose of why I built my shed. was accumalating to many toys and could fit my truck in my garage any longer.

I have only had to plow a couple inches so far myself , luckily cause when I went out to the atv the winch was no longer working in the down postion. spent a couple hours fixing some wiring.
