    I knew the SnowDogg brackets hung down low bum DAMN!!!!
    Looks like I am going to have to do some modifications to raise it up.
    Think I am going to loose the L brackets and redrill the side plates to raise it up to the max height!

    Damn! Yeah I'd say that a bit too low. Is there any weight in the back?

    That's a good amount of weight with the winch up front too

    lose the winch for the season and put some bags in the coils up front ?

    but yea.... that's horrible....make sure to check clearance everywhere but fab that thing higher....

    Accodring to your specs:
    1. SnowDogg does not recommend a MD75 on a Rubicon. They recommend a 6'8.
    2. The recommended Min. Ballast: 950 lbs (for a 6'8) so for a 75 it would be more like 975lbs.

    There little jeeps are not what they use to be. They can't handle all the front end weight.
    I've seen people cut the lowest portion of the side plate if it is not being used to make it even with the push bar.
    You definitely need the ballast but this will also help.

    speed bumps !! I think you need to watch out for anything and everything in the road. This isn't a matter of will I hit something but a matter of when I hit something. Good luck

    IMO I can see those eyes snapping off by the end of the season. better make sure that A frame is agains the stops going down the road, that blade starts bouncing going over speed humps or RR tracks could tear it apart..... should of ditched the winch and heavy winch bumper for the season

    I would have cut out slots in the crossmember, you just took away a ton of strength from the mount.
