Re: Plowin Snow with SWB Jeeps
Sorry, I don't have a picture, and the Jeep's in pieces right now. I'll see if I can get a picture from the parts pile in the next few days, but there's really nothing special. It's just a big, long shock between the plow and the lift frame.
I have considered adding a shock to the blade tilt, but there is a little problem: standard shocks have most of their resistance in extension, and very little in compression, which is the opposite of what's needed to damp the blade's return after tilting. You will have to use something else, either a drag-racing up-lift shock, if they still make them, or a damper from a Western plow, or a hydraulic cylinder with a small reservoir and a flow control valve.
