    Yes. I've converted a TJ mount. Wasn't easy.
    Then, I built a new mount that fit better.
    Also, the push beam width is different, so that had to be modified.
    You're basically building a mount.
    A good fabricator with some knowledge of snow plows and knowledge of truck frames can do it.

    As stated by the counter jockey:laugh:, the YJ was discontinued before boss built sport duty and light truck plows.

    Thanks for the response. Thats good to hear. I’m pretty good with steel fabrication and have everything I need, so it should be a fun project! It doesn’t sound like there’s anything that should get in my way of doing this, so if it comes to fruition, I’ll be sure to post some pics.

    The TJ mount plates really don't work at all. You'd be better off making your own. I believe I used 5/16' plate.

    I was looking on boss website for the mount and part # for the Jeep JL. I couldn’t find the application for it. Do you knjw what mount kit you used? Is there a specific JL one, or did you use the JK one

    LTA11950B is the JL mount. The JK will not fit.

    The "JL" stands for Jeep Lightweight.. they made the frame lighter and the axles too. cant even put a plow on the 4 door model.

    You have to get the Gladiator or a Rubicon if you want to put a plow on a 4 door JL.

    No wonder why boss selector didn’t let me choose a plow. Thanks for the heads up

    The pieces will still bolt up to the 2dr Wrangler JL without any issues even though the product selector doesn't list it.

    I’m sure they will, just if it’s not applicable to that certain model I worry about warranty

    Going through the Boss plow selector a 2 door JL Sport with either the 2.0L or the 3.6L will accept the 7' HTX.

    Wow I guess the value of my TJ will hold for a few more years.
    I went to Phoenix and bought a two owner 100% stock Y2K Sahara 4.0L auto 140K mi. two yrs. ago this coming March. Drove it back to Ohio put a Boss HTX on it.
    I plow our apartment complexes with it lots of nooks and cranny's so far not a single problem.
    We have a HD2500 8' Myers for anything the TJ cant handle, but haven't used it for plowing since I got the TJ.
