    Just picked up a used 6.5 western sport utility for another jeep setup. It will really just see minimal use and be a back up for my older solid 6.5 uni's. The blade and frame is almost new looking but the quadrant is rusted and bent up. Im thinking someone swapped it out. I was going to order a new one for $300 but instead I'm going to fix it and reinforce it. Has anyone else see this issue.

    I've only see then mold board/ entire blade piece rust out from all areas. havent seen any other pieces rust out but I could see it happening since I believe the A frame/quadrant whatever you want to call it , is not the same as a standard setup and mostly likely thinner and weaker. I'd go with your judgement and custom reinforce it to what you want. I have the standard 6'6" going on a cherokee its a monster. I'm looking for a tj unimount truckmount side frame for the future ... PPANDR got any pics? thanks alot
