Hey BigBill, WoW! Some snow plowin machine.
I ordered my first new Cherokee back in '94. By '99 i put some 350,000 miles on it with no engine or tranny overhauls. Only burnd a half quart of oil every 3K miles. That Jeep would still be running today if it didn't manage to get T-boned.
Every Spring i get a bug up my arse to buy either a Harley or an old CJ that i can rebuild similar to what you did. The Harley goes out the window once i'm reminded of that permanent noggin on my head from my old Harley days.
But a CJ project complete with snow plow is still there naggin at me especially since that blizzard last Winter. Four foot drifts in front of the garage and barn...first time i've ever been snow bound out here. I had to pull out the heavy artillery, my Farmall 300U with front utility bucket to move out all that snow.
Even my dogs got snowed in!
This Fall i'm finally gonna put up some snow fences and see if that helps.
