    Hey guys. 1st time posting here. Been stalking around for a while. Just got my plow set up a couple weeks ago, and thought I'd post up some pics.

    Storm we got last week;

    I'm still getting the hang of it. I've only plowed 3 times, and never had before. Hope you all like the pics. Got some vid. but trying to get it on the computer's being a PITA.

    Cool Jeep. What's keeping the plow mount from moving backwards when you are pushing or hit a pile?

    The jeep is an 03 Rubicon, engine's a 6.0 out of a 2005 Silverado 2500, tranny's a 4L65E out of a 01-03 Suburban, stock t-case, cab and chassis 14 bolt rear with Detroit, narrowed F350 Dana 60 front with ARB, 4.56 gears, tires are 38X15.5 TSL Radials on American Racing Outlaw IIs.

    It's hard to tell from the pics, but the mount is straight up and down at the front, but angles back at the rear quite a bit, so there's some triangulation there.

    Thanks for the replies!

    All the bolts aren't in this pic either. This was when I first put the mount on.

    I forgot to mention that between the plow and mount, I've got $500 into this setup... well, $50,500 if you include the jeep. LOL

    What more stats would you like? I thought I covered everything above.

    Yes it's a stock NP241OR. They were used in diesel one ton applications. I wheel it with a lead foot, and haven't "broken" anything yet. Sure a 3 speed Stak would be awesome, but it's big $$$. I've got an SM435 and NP205 in the shed... considering a 3:1 kit in the 205 and swapping in.... and yes that's going backwards from the current 4:1, but the granny low 1st of the tranny would more then make up for it.

    This last stage of the build just finished last winter... I've been working out the bugs, and don't have much in the way of pics... but here are older ones;

    I was wondering about the lack of bolts....

    I love the fab job, looks great and looks like it serves it purpose...
    no power angle huh?
    I guess you do it the old fasion way, pull the pin and turn it?

    great looking rig!

    Haven't broken anything since the latest build... bent, and wore out lots of things. Like I said, still working out some bugs.
