Plow Angle

Hello everyone

I am wondering if changing the angle of my plow blade will help with the performance of my plow. First some background; I currently plow with a 72" Meyer blade on my Jeep CJ 7. The jeep has 5" of lift and 35" tires. I dropped a normal CJ plow frame to allow it to work on my jeep. As a result the mounts are also about 3" aft of where they normally sit. When I built built the frame I set it up such that the A frame was level. I neglected to account for the sag the jeep would take over the winter. So at this point I am left with about a 5* lean back. Normally I would not normally care. I am just doing my own driveway.

However when we get large storms (8+") the plow at time has a tendency to not stay down eventually it kinda floats up and I ended up with a large pile of snow between the plow and the jeep front tires. At this point the plow becomes a big anchor. I can't back up and I can't go forward.

In short do you all think change the plow to leaning forward would help prevent it from riding up on it's own?

I'll try and get some pictures up later if that is helpful. Thanks for all the advice.
