    nice;)
    Now all you need is some snow:eek:

    I thought about some thing like that for my truck.
    instead of sand bags.

    I thought using the rack and weights from the front of a ford 9n or something similar.

    Looks good PJ, but that stock you have used for the top link kinda scares me. How much weight is on that bracket?
    Other than the top link the fab job looks great, and you can remount the weights on the front in the summer months!

    the top link is made out of 2" heavy wall tubing with about 1/2" wall and guseted i hope it will hold up,every thing else is built out of 1/2"X6" plate (was going to be a plow edge) oh'well, there is about 1000lb and the bracket so maybe 1200-1400? the weights say 45 Kg, HOW MUCH IS A Kg? LOL maybe a canadian will know;)

    No, but I could fab one up.;)

    I don't think I need one quite as big as yours....
    I only need #600 to #800lbs ivemelt and other suplies will make up the rest of the weight
    I was thinking of putting it where the spare tire is?
    Removing the spare of course.
    The spare can be mounted in the box.
    Ever try to get the spare down after plowing for a few hrs?
    so having it in the box will make that job easer too.

    It would be out of the way.
    no more need for sand bags.

    Just thinking out loud..:waving:

    I guess I'll have to do some rummaging around next time I'm on the farm..
