    I think the smallest they make a 6'9" LD. I have one on my zr2. But they seem to be hard to find now.

    6'9' LD is what they make now stopped the smaller lds because there trying to push their homesteader. LDs while still around, seem to be harder to find now and you donn't see many of them. I know a few people on this site run new 6'9" s on tacomas and s-10s i have seen a few on blazers too.

    Fisher still makes the 6'9 LD MM1 but on a limited run production,we've been waiting for a few for Jeep wranglers and Fisher claims they are working on them.
    Unless your dealer has one laying around it's gonna be a special order type deal with no confirmed delivery date.

    I want one for my 97 Jimmy but can't get a kit anymore. I will have to buy everything in pieces.

    RonRacing, where did you find a ZR@ mount or did you have to modify one to fit it?

    I found the mount at my local fisher dealer. I did not have to make any modifications

    that is funny, from what I've seen and read Fisher doesn't make a mount for the ZR2, is it a s10 mount or ZR2 specific mount?

    I think that it is the same as the s-10 mount

    ok, maybe they just don't list or recommend it for the ZR2. How does your Z plow? what about front end sag?

    They don't list it. I have been really impressed with the plow. I do only resident driveways and although it is a smaller blade than I am used to, the truck is smaller to get into tighter places. I have only used it a few times but the last storm was 6-8" of wet snow and it had no porblems. Even able to stack the snow in the smaller driveways. My zr2 doesn't sag as long as I have some ballast in the rear.

    do you have the model number for the mount? How much balast do you carry in the back? Do you have any pics?

    I use about 300 pounds of ballast. I have pictures in the picture forum. I have to figure out where the mount model number is.
