    I have an 87 Wrangler and I want to install a new plow on it. None of the plow makers sites show mountings for a Jeep of this age. How much different are the mounts from newer Wranglers from late 90s up?

    The frame rails are not the same width and obviously coils instead of springs so there will be a different bracket. Best bet is to alter a used mount if you can weld. You can try ebay for a used wrangler mount. If you lived closer I have something that would work.

    87 to 95 have the same frame. 97 up have a different frame. NO Jeep made in 96
