A Monroe hydraulic lift is used to carry the plow. Monroe was a farm implement company that jumped on the Jeep bandwagon early and is now the best known of the handful that offered Jeep products. A hydraulic pump is driven off the crankshaft snout and the lift arms pivot off the factory drawbar. Huddle’s CJ also mounts a rear PTO, just visible below the lift. The weight of all this, plus the front weight, pushes a little past the Jeep’s rated 3,500 pound GVW. Some farmers added dual rear wheels and even more weight to the Jeep for better plowing performance, but it rapidly increased wear on the drivetrain. In just an hour of demo plowing, the rear axle of Huddles Jeep was too hot to touch.
