It looks like it sticks out about 5 feet too far. . . lol

J/K, it looks pretty good. You're all set for Winter then, eh? My Mom and I both drive 4X4's on 31's, we aren't even going to bother plowing this year. lol

You should change you "Got Sand?" sticker to a "Got Snow?" sticker.

I do not know if I would want to drive around with 50+ pounds hanging off of the front of my jeep expecially in snow. But it let us know how it drives when you are plowing.

Yea, it seems like it needs to be closer to the body, but it looks like you're set for snow.

It does Stick out approx 3 ft farther than it did on my frontier. But because of all the Stuff on the front of the YJ's I had to extend it a bit. It will stay in the garage all winter no road trips with it for a few months. I plow my 900 ft driveway and that will be all.

Shouldn't be a problem if you aren't driving it on the road, and honestly, you're saving a lot of wear and tear on the Jeep by keeping it in the garage all the time, only taking it out to plow. Not to mention, if you refrain from using salt or other corrosives on the driveway, you should be able to effectively prevent rust from forming.

Throw some tube sand in the rear like @ 500lbs worth to counter balance the weight on the front . My good friend put a plow on his YJ and it wouldn't turn for anything when pushing snow (the rear kept spinning out), so for Christmas I got him 8 tubes of sand, and he could turn and really use the plow to its fullest. He liked it because he could get into tighter places than he could with his F350 and with the added weight would push just as good.

I fabbed a 7' fisher speedcast from an s10 to fit my yj. It was awesome. It must have had 3 feet of lift and could make huge mounds. I've plowed with everything from pickups, to dump trucks, and s10's to wranglers. I'm not going to say a wrangler will push like an F550 dump truck, but it holds its own. Definitly put weight in the back, it will help. Use 4lo if you can, it saved a lot of my clutch last year.
