    Sweeeeeet! I have the same set up on a YJ and am considering switching it over to a TJ. How does your angle with the lift? I had issues with it digging in on the YJ with about an inch (stiffer stock springs) and 235/75-15s so I had to make brackets to lower the a Frame.

    Right now at full angle one edge is off the ground a little. Once i go to the smaller tires it should be fine. I also might add a little more chain. But it still works good now. Plowed a little this morn.

    Excellent. The chain should help hooking up. I still would like to get away from the A Frame angle. Mine was about 1 1/2" off the ground at full angle which was high enough to miss quite a bit. I had old Meyer products that had enough play in the center bolt that the A Frame could have some angle. Western's manual says that the connection point for the A Frame should be around 10" off the ground for a YJ! That's crazy! The plow mount would be hitting man hole covers at that point. Did you download the .pdf instructions and manual for your mount and plow or, if you already have it, who high does it want your mount to be off the ground. Stuff I would like to know before going to a TJ with the Uni Mount.
