    Hows it going guys

    I have a jeep wrangler and I have a stupid question about removing the lift frame from the mount on the jeep. Since I have owned the setup I always take the plow off after a storm and store it in a heated garage. As the years go on the lift frame gets harder and harder to pull out or off the jeep.

    Any ideas to get this thing to slide in and out easier? Im about to pull the plow out of storage and tune everything up here shortly and this is one thing I wanted to fix

    Lubricate the tube really well with KY.:laughing:

    Seriously use Neversieze or a good waterprooof grease.

    But before you do, clean all the corrosion buildup from both the receiver tubes and the lift frame. Scraper, screwdriver wire brush etc. The rust buildup is what makes it tougher to remove and install as the years go by. Need to remove it and then lubricate thoroughly. :nod:

    yea thats my plan. I just didnt know if there was a differant route. I wonder what kind of cleaner will take all the old grease and stuff off?

    Maybe WD40?

    You know thats a curse word around here right? :D

    Carb cleaner or brake clean and some shop towels will remove the old grease and get you down to the rust.
