    Hey Guys!
    Well after plowing with my Xj for a couple of years, I thought it would be nice to upgrade a little. Here is a couple pictures of my ZJ with a Meyer plow on it. The mount is from a Chevy pickup.

    Not yet,
    Its going to be trial and error finding the right components that wont lift the truck after installation.

    Thanks for the kind words:drinkup:

    If you call skyjacker they will give you the spring lengths uncompressed and the spring rate, then all you have to do is find one that is smaller (shorter) with a higher spring rate than the factory one. Then you will have a spring that won't compress as much when under weight, and wont give you a lift. Also I'm not sure if you have the v8 or the I6 but I think the v8 is a higher spring rate from the factory.
