Default front Receiver hitch plow mount?

I know this has been done. But I am looking for pictures of a plow mount that would go in the front receiver hitch of a jeep. I plan on mounting a plow on my YJ next winter and wanted to start researching it now.

I am assuming braces are also ran up to the frame someplace and mounted when this is done?

I did this on my F150 with 4 receivers.........................use the lightest plow you can find.
By the time I finished cross bracing for the receivers, I ended up adding to much weight to the front of my truck.

This is the only picture I have, but I will try to take one tonight of the mount.



The receiver mount allows me to switch to this in the off season.

I have a 6' plow from a Cj3B that isn't too bad on weight. Biggest hurdle is the YJ front bumper is 25" or something off the ground. I may end up putting it back on my 2A

mine is higher then that, so I had to build drops for the pivot, and yea they take a lot of stress, so make them beefy.
