hi guys. thanks for having a peek at the TJ. lol. actually, that thing is not on the bumper if you're referring to the plow headgear. It mounts into the plow frame you can see below the bumper.

There however, is a Wilson 1000 mag mount antenna on the bumper if you look on the passenger side.

lol. I think them Southern Boys need to do a little traveling with their rigs - kinda get out and see the rest of the Country.

Snow is more fun to play in than dirt. hehe. more fun getting stuck in also. I'll try to get some good pics next time a storm rolls in.
Habman you live up North in the famous home of the first Corvette! I bet up there you guys measure the snow in "feet" instead of inches.

No Michele,

This year the most we have had on the gound at one time was about 5". Right now we have less than 1". The south KY, OH, NC have had more than we have, although it has been in the teens for over a week now.

I also am a bit of a northern'er ..

We also measure our snow in feet .. our best snow fall lately was 24' .. a couple years ago it was a light snowfall - only 16' stuck to the ground.

Holy Jeezuz Naekid, that's a lot of snow! Don't think I'd want to live someplace that gets hit quite that bad.

The TJ and I can comfortably deal with a 2 footer in a straight 24 hour span of snow.

Yea down here in Southern KY we have had about 6-8" total over a period of about a week and a half. Its been in the teens here also. The other day it was only 6 degrees F and the windchill was -15 degrees F. I was still driving the Jeep. Lets just say that it took a little but longer for the heater to warm up than normal.
