    The Barbie jeep is going to need a bigger battery! LOL. Show us pics when you get it mounted on your truck.

    Are you gonna mod the tube bumper? Looks like you won't need plow lights since they are on the rollbar!

    The jeep mods are next. Today put most of the plow together. Really lubed up the center hinge pin. Sprayed it with graphite first. The 9.2 sections might have required 2 people but I could just get the 8.2 sections off the truck and move with the two wheeler. Trip springs seemed a little short but I put some wood under the push frame and then I could just get the threads started, This also helped when it came time to put in "V". I just await my smartlocks so I can complet and test out. Boss included the threadlock taped to the box top on the inside. Overall I'd say it was easier than the undercarriage install, cause I wasn't layin on my back on the concrete.

    Had to find the right tool to tighten horizontal hinge pin. The small monkey and pipe wrenched didn't work. The big monkey wrenched worked though, good thing, been carying that thing around from place to place for 25 yrs finally came in handy. Thanks Dad.
    Not sure if there is a more correct tool but got ~125ftlbs on the clinched nut.
    Wish I could have done a video. Fortunately no cut off toes or fingers or damaging of parts ...so far.
