Hi guys
I recently bought a plow for my 149, from what I can tell from previous post the lifting rod is 28 long. Does anyone have any fabrication ideas? Any input would be great.

morning ed, here's what i made up for my 109 a few years ago. 1/2 inch threaded rod with clevis rod ends from macmaster carr(pn 1583K61). no problems but i may slip a piece of pipe over it as it looks like i have a slight tweek on one end but it still works fine.

Yes they can, but depending on what style/brand tire, you'll have to add spacers to raise the fenders up an inch or so.

Here is a super steer upgrade that shows the use of higher load bearing hubs.

There are other reinforcement modifications that can be done to the stock spindles. The stock bearings are generally the weakest link.
