Looks to me like it's got a 4 or 6" lift on it and the weight of the plow is unloading the rear axle pretty substantially.

Plows are typically a couple hundred lbs. Even though it is resting on the ground, it may not be putting down ground pressure to relieve the weight of the plow frame and mount, in which case it would still be somewhat nose heavy.

IIRC Will on here plows with his BII and put air bags in the front coils to help give the front suspension the extra support to handle the weight of the plow.
