    They stopped making cherokees the years ago. most of the maufacturers have changed mount systems since then and never designed a new system mount for a vehicle no longer in production

    A decent fabricator can adapt an existing mount to fit on a Cherokee. It might even be for about as much as you would pay for a new mount. If you are interested in putting a plow on a Cherokee, I wouldn't let the absense of a "proper" plow mount deter you. Buy a plow made for an S10 or other similar light duty rig and have a mount fabbed up for your rig.

    A Snow Dogg mount for another Jeep may not need to much fabrication to fit on your XJ

    See Tech Support area

    Look in Service manuals area from SnowDogg Tech Support selection (SnowDogg Mount Manuals are half way down, Jeeps are towards bottom)

    Just picked up my MD68 mounted to a 2000 Wrangler. Let it snow!

    Sno way used to make plows for cherokee and you can still get the mount from sno way you just have to buy an used sno way plow to fit the older 3 pin mounting style, good luck!!!
