    A tee hee. I'm excited like a little kid about this one. I've never used something so small or plowed with a manual trans... Seems like I do this about this about now every year. It was the Bronco last year and the _ before that...

    Yeah, yeah, I know it's not that exciting. I'll just make this this year's thread for my dumb vehicles.

    That looks fun and they're prob great for plowing b/c of the short turning radius.

    Oops. Missed that. Looks like the winch will be out of the way and that will come in handy for sure.

    The winch really came in handy during the install and it makes moutning the plow a breeze - just hook it up and pull it into place. I still need the air shock part number from plowmeister to level it out among a few other things, but it could go plow right now.

    I love Jeeps. I'd be stoked too. If you need some lettering, let me know.

    Any idea on what that plow weighs? I'm looking to mount a Boss super duty that weighs like 750 pounds. I know it's alot but I see Boss v's on Jeeps all the time, but the weight scares me..

    i'm always jealous of your vehicle. That jeep looks sweat!

    I don't know what it weighs, but I'd be very surprised to see Boss Vs on a lot of Jeeps. I know of one, plowmeister's, but that's the only one I know to exist. This is a light duty LSX 7'2" blade, so I'm sure it's nowhere near 760lbs.

    You'd better be jealous, JD, that's why I do it ;)

    We used to have a mid 70's CJ with a Western 6'-6". You'll grin from ear to ear, they are fun to plow with in tight areas. Nice rig.

    Nice rig there! (jeep with the plow) Just wondering what your ground clearance is at the low point of the plow mount?

    I've got and old 89 wrangler and an old 6 1/2 meyers that I'm planing on putting together and was wondering how low or high I should mount it.

    I haven't measured the mount height, but it's higher than it's supposed to be. They recommend that the mount be low enough to keep the A frame of the plow parallel with the ground. I'm not going to worry about it for now.
