    No, we did not use this as a plow rig. So no plow parts are installed or available.

    How is the frame? Did you do the transfercase drop with the lift?

    We purchased it with the lift already done, unknown if the t-case was dropped or not. It looks like there are 1" spacers on the skid plate to drop it down. I will see if I can get a couple pictures.
    From what I can see of the frame it looks to be solid, although there is the normal amount of rust for a '97.

    Here are a couple pics of the underside. First one is the skid plate. If you would like more just ask.

    What does it need for work?

    As said above there is motor work that is needed, I believe it has a lifter knock.
    Otherwise there is some rust on the body that isn't too bad but will need to be addressed. If you want I could snap some pics tomorrow.
    Also there is some vibration going down the road. It might be the rear driveshaft, because when you remove it and run in 4 wheel drive the vibration is gone.
    If you want a better expanation give me a call tomorrow after 3pm
