    Looking for a used plow for my 2000 TJ. No luck yet, but I've seen plenty of YJ stuff. Any idea how bad the swap would be if Igot one off a YJ? I know the leaf to coil springs is the biggest difference. I don't really care what brand of plow it is, I have my favorites but beggars can't be choosers, trying to do this cheap.
    Thanks.

    You will need to do a lot of fabrication work, the frame is quite a bit different between the YJ & TJ. I believe the YJ frame is a couple inches narrower, and the mount had to made to go around the leaf springs. Yhe TJ frame rails are more accessible due to the coil springs.
