will this size blade fit my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee as a rear mount
asked by: Donald
We do have a better solution to mount a snow plow on the back of your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The item you selected Agri-Cover SnowSport All Terrain Snowplow Blade, part # A40472 is designed to be mounted on a riding lawn mower.
For a snow plow for your Jeep, I would recommend the Agri-Cover SnowSport 180 Snowplow for 2 Inch Hitches, part # A40082, which will mount to a 2 Inch Receiver Hitch. Part # A40082, features a wide 82 Inch blade, and is designed to mount to vehicles with a 2 Inch Hitch, and can be used on a front or rear mount hitch.
If you do not have a 2 Inch Hitch installed on your Jeep you will need to install one, like Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87601. You will want to measure from the ground to the bottom of your receiver, the Agri-Cover Snowplow requires there be between 8 and 16 Inches of clearance from ground to bottom of receiver.
The reason why part # A40472 would not work on your Jeep is because of how much higher your Jeep sits up than a riding lawn mower. The blade would not reach the ground, to plow snow.
I have linked instructions, a video of how to assemble the snow plow and a video of how to mount the plow to your vehicle that you may find as a good reference.
