Yah, I didn't have to cut the cross member, just drilled through it, and the rails.

The other project was by Yeggster. He cut out the cross rail similar to what you did and put in a receiver hitch. Here's his thread:

Btw, your setup looks great and the plow looks to do a really good job. Thanks for posting this for the rest of us.

Thance, yes, that is the other quick and easy option. LOL That was why I said I was just going to use it as a trailer moving, boat landing, hitch. It is sad that you have to go to all that trouble to reinforce a JEEP! so you can plow snow. Now that you have that structure down below the frame, you could mount a Western Suburbanite on there too. If your hitch mount blade isn't meeting your needs, that is. The surburbanite is about 2 grand, but it is a lightweight, limited use, plow with fully functional live hydraulics. I love mine on my CJ.

I agree that it's a shame. I use to have that plow on the front of a full size Bronco, and all I needed was a standard front receiver... never had any issues, but as good as the xk unibody is, I wasn't going to trust it for plowing.

Is the Suburbanite the model that's made for the plow mount I used? I never looked into it that far, but it might prove useful someday, especially if I can find one used.

Thanks,

Tom

I know it's been 2 years..... but somehow I never saw your post.

You can raise and lower the plow manually (it is either up on the top hooks for transportation or down for plowing. There is no in between). As far as angling left or right there is a kit you can buy for that. It is manually set as well. I do not have it.

Here is a picture of the way I remounted my license plate. The fold down step doubles as a "Mother in Law Carrier". Just add a piece of rope as a safety belt.
