Lightbulb Lift kit with Plow? Especially Rubicon Express

Any one on here running a lift kit with a plow? I have a 8' MM2 HD fisher plow that i use, and am wondering what to do about lifting my truck, and the compatability with the Fisher Minute mounts? I am really partial to the rubicon express lifts, but any feedback would be helpful, Basically if any or you guys are having sagging issues or stuff like that while using the plow on a lifted truck. thanks for your interest, Tom
