1. The installation of the 2-inch receiver plate will vary depending on your application and what options you have on your vehicle, like a winch. The receiver plate for our '97 Jeep TJ Sport slipped right over the stock front bumper once we removed the six stock bumper-mounting bolts. When the plow and frame are off the vehicle, this is the only part of the plow remaining, and in our application it didn't adversely affect our TJ's approach angle. If you already have a front receiver, you can simply mount the plow frame as long as the bottom of the frame is between 9 and 15 inches from the ground.
