What’s up, guys? Today we’re going to be showing you how easy it is to install SuperATV’s Snow Plow Mount on this General XP 1000 in 6 easy steps. So let’s get right to it—I’ll walk you through each one.
We have A-arms, a frame stiffener, and portals installed on this machine.
The first thing we’ll do is remove the A-arm bolts on both sides.
Let’s start here. You can see a lot of tension on this bolt right now. I like to pull or push back on the tire, take some tension off the bolt, and get it out. This one has quite a bit of tension on it. So we’re going to take our pry bar and pry this bolt out.
Once it gets to a certain point, you can put your impact on it.
Then you’ll take a punch and a hammer, lightly tap on it, and knock the bolt out. You’re not going to hurt anything by doing this. There’s just a lot of tension with it having the weight of a frame stiffener and portals on it.
As you can see, this side just threaded right out with no problems.
If you have a frame stiffener installed, you’ll remove this plate. In order to do that, you will have to take these three bolts out of your front bumper.
Once all your nuts are removed, you’ll remove the bolts and work the plate out.
Next, we’re going to line up our A-arm to our hole and start our hardware—slide it all the way through. Do the same thing on the opposite side.
Now we’re going to remove our rearmost A-arm hardware.
As you can see, I went ahead and threaded it all the way out. It’s not going to hurt anything doing it that way.
Now we’re going to grab our long M12 hardware, our rear bracket, and our M12 nylock nut.
You’re going to line your A-arm with the hole on your tab, then take your bolt and slide it through.
Repeat this same step on the driver’s side.
Now we’re going to grab our snow plow mount and all of our M10 bolts. We’ll take our snow plow mount and lay it up just like so. Then we’ll start the bolts through the bracket or the mount to the bracket.
So we have all three of the front bolts started. Now we’re going to begin our rear bolts in our rear bracket. Make sure to add it to both sides.
Now, we’re going to go ahead and fully tighten all of the A-arm bolts and then fully tighten our hardware securing the snow plow mount to our brackets.
Next, we will fully tighten all the hardware securing the mount to our bracketry.
So once you’ve gone through and fully tightened all your hardware, you need to attach your snow plow, and you’re ready to go.
