    anything new and exciting with the plow and accessories manufacturers? havent
    seen much of anything. probably keep my warn setup anyway, but always nice
    to see the new stuff.--irv

    didnt have that much snow last season. used my simplicity and blower more.
    never even took the cab and plow off.

    Say How do you like ur soft top cab Does it fog over

    Is your warn plow a mid mount or a front mount

    I have a polaris plow (CC) has a A frame mounted in middle of atv I like it heavy duty but it wont lift very high off the ground
    So instead buying a new front mount style
    I think Im going re design it Thinking about mounting the A frame solid,still be mounted in middle then mount it on the front to . Then cut the rest off and weld ears on the A frame Then weld ears on the plow side s should lift higher and curl back

    My sidewalk crew complains about it loading it on the trailer It hits hard on the ramp

    plow slides up the ramp thats not problem Since the Plow dont lift high and when you go up the ramp slow it lift the front tires off the ground So have to hit hard hope you are lined up snow trailer is 5ft wide and my plow is 58'' wide

    thats all I need I like small trailer for the sidewalk crew they pull it with a Toyota4x4 it doesnt stick out stays behing the truck They only use bigger trailer if the snow is deep 8''+ and need the skidloader to clean walks
    I have trailers
    38ft GN big tractor trailer
    24ft GN mower trailer
    14 dump GN
    18ft BH tractor hauler
    16ft BH Tractor hauler
    14ft BH mower trailer
    10ft BH Snow

    could make longer ramp
    But I think be more fun fabbing the new setup
    Get this done I going start on another rear trip plow that sold to a guy for his sidewalk crew

    That's what I had been thinking would happen for the inside. Add the heat from the engine and I'd imagine it's like a defroster/fogger. The only other issue I'd see is the outside of the windshield area getting snow/water on it and not have good visibility?

    wish there was some engine heat off the simplicity. i think it all comes
    from my heavy breathing. i do carry a wiper blade on the rubicon to wipe
    but its rare, unless heavy wet bowing snow. you get a little heat there if the fan comes on..
    but no fogging. had the simplicity setup since 2000 and the rubicon and cab since
    05.second rubicon though. no trouble w/anything yet.

    IRV, you can add a switch to your temp sensor on that rubicon to turn on the fan manualy, might work well as a heater, just need to ground the sensor and it will turn the fan on, turn the switch off and it runs normal.

    To make sure you have the right wire just pull the wire off the sensor and with the key on ground the wire to a ground and the overheat light should come on as well as the fan.

    Then just tap in and you can let her run whenever you want :)

    Yep, you are basically just telling the ECM it overheated which will turn the fan on.
