I do. yours will work but it will wear out the cutting edge quicker.

With the ultra mount and the removeable brackets I would think that you could have those brackets modified to drop down a few inchs so that the angle would be fairly close and in the summer the brackets would be gone so no worries.

I have a friend who has a 4 inch lift and plow. He has no problems. He didn't modify anything to make it work either.

I have a Meyer plow for mine, and also only do a few driveways. The plow shop I had install the plow cut the frame of the plow itself and welded in like a 6-7" step and reinforced it. It sits pretty level too. No problems so far.

Lifts over 4" im sure your going to need bracket modifications.

The boss plows we use on our ford trucks, all say the mount beam height should be 15.5" off the ground. My 06 f350 has it at 15" and yeah, its a hair off usually when im pulling up to mount the plow on making it a little difficult.

If it was any higher than say 16.5" or more, its gonna require you to store the plow with a car jack underneath to lift the plow bracket up to the truck bracket proper hight to pull on. While plowing, probably no problems besides fast wear to the cutting edge like others said.
