    Since the jack has to be removed to operate the plow it should have a place to store it on the plow. I picked up some Quickfist clamps and mounted them to the moldboard frame. No more sticking it behind the seat, in the bed, or leaving it behind. A Nite Ize gear tie holds the handle from flopping around.

    I should add, I cut some metal to reinforce the rubber clamps. The clamps only have one hole so the metal is also ziptied to the rubber and a bolt goes through both. These are the original size and are just big enough to wrap around the jack.

    IIRC I used some sort of Rivnut to thread the frame.

    I would be worried about it getting covered in snow/ice and then freezing up when i want to put the plow away. Let me know if you have issues, otherwise I really like the idea!

    I got the idea from a picture I stumbled across of an HD/EX/XP. Those plows have it stowed in basically the same spot.

    Any part of the plow is vulnerable to icing up. Lots of snow does accumulate behind the moldboard and on top of the pivot pin. It's mostly from stacking. However, no significant ice has accumulated that could hinder access to the jack. The area around the retaining pins and foot pedals get jammed up more so with ice and snow.

    I brush off the whole plow after use to keep buildup minimal. I also use self serve car wash bays regularly. I do garage my truck which may help as well. Basic maintenance, cleaning, and upkeep is key regardless.

    "u" spell really well. I'll bet you're a professor or something. NOT.
