This did successfully leave.

I finished plowing haystacks off the yard with the new plow pile today. I don’t think I had a thread yet for the XJ I got from Will.


Only picture I have of it, it seems.

Drive around for almost an hour all I’ve the yard pushing grass. Adjusted pivot point so blade lifts higher. Could use some bushings or newer pins, lots of rattles pushing across grass.

Dash is dead. Shows “no bus” I forgot to unhook the battery when done, not sure how long that takes to die. Shifter way too tight, I will break it. Otherwise seems great! Bunch of atf cooked off from somewhere while idling but that got better not worse.

that shifter is tight inside the transmission, it has nothing to do with the cable or shift linkage. 


not sure why dash is dead, everything worked last time it left my shop. 


i think i put front axle ujoints, exhaust work, wiper motor, welded the rear diff / fluid, not sure what else.

Will knew about it, he was saying something about maybe something fried from welding with live batt/computer? Idk.

When I look at interiors between them I’ll likely swap clusters and maybe play with computers. Would be nice to have a working dash in the one I’m so far not selling.

Dash pulled out and kill switch installed inside. Plow back on and leaky tires filled. Battery swapped for a good one. Ready for snow.

I moved here in hopes or more snow. Two decades of disappointment.

decided to push it around for fun. jeep sure is a LOT smaller than a 2500 longbed. good for maneuverability. will be wanting for any actual big snow.

plow motor solenoid stuck on just as I wrapped up. interior master shutoff was very nice for that. I after it didn't want to unstick, I just moved the blade left/right as I parked to not deadhead the pump for minutes. always something!
