    Just bought a snoway MDT for a song, went to look at a salter I found on Craigslist and ended up with a plow...Gonna turn my commuter into a driveway rig.

    Anyway, plow came with everything except for mount, anyone know where I can find one for an 01 XJ?

    Help a noob out....

    Thx

    If it's a 3-point mount, maybe you can adapt an ST or MT XJ truck-side mount.

    I picked up some 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 square tube receiver hitch stuff and 5/8 plate. I fish platted the frame near the front and welded the tube to it just like a receiver hitch. Put a piece of 2 1/2 between then right under the front cross member with triangles welded up to the fish plates. Then I made an A frame to mate in the tubes just like a receiver insert 2 x 2 sqare tube. (I had this so it is not included in the cost.) During the off season I can remove the A frame and only the tube ends are visible. I also put a receiver hitch in the center as well in case I would want to drive some thing in with it instead of backing it. The hitch pins for the plow mount right to the 2 1/2 inch cross member. I have already moved all the snow so far this year with no problems, so far about 50 inches of snow with one dump of 21 inches. I spent about $150 on the entire mount process.
