Snowbear Mount Help - Cross-Member No Fit
Greetings - Thanks in advance to anyone who has useful input on the following problem. I'm prepared to weed through the mine field, and once I'm done getting flamed and beat up for buying a Snowbear I hope to obtain some useful advice here. For what it's worth, I too bought it knowing it was not a commercial duty blade, etc. etc.
I purchased a used Snowbear and purchased the vehicle-specific mount kit from Snowbear for my 1999 Toyota 4runner. The mount kit is the correct one and the plates fit the frame holes, etc. but the mounts, once in place, are about 1/2" to narrow for the cross-member bar! I assumed at first it was a positioning issue, etc. but with everything very loose mounted and lots of play, no way. I expected some minor mods to the existing mount plates holes would be necessary, but this is too far off for minor adjustment. Has anyone had any similar experience?
