Tusk SubZero ATV Snow Plow Mount Installation - Honda Rubicon/ Foreman 500
This is the Tusk SubZero Plow Mount installation video for the Rubicon and Foreman 500.
Having the proper tools and some assistance will make the job a lot easier. For this video, we've stood the machine up so you can better understand the installation process. You'll need to safely support your machine in order to gain access to the undercarriage for installation.
Part 1 is removal of the stock skid plate. First thing we need to do is remove the 4 bolts that are holding on the stock center plate; we used a 10- millimeter T-handle to do that. Once you've got those 4 bolts out, we can go ahead and remove that stock center skid plate.
Part 2 of this video is installation of the plow mount. You'll notice in your hardware kit you received 2 smaller-diameter clamps and 2 bigger ones. The smaller ones are going to be used for the front of the machine, as you can see here. This is the location for the rear clamps. Now is a great time to grab a buddy, someone that can hold that plow mount up while you get the threads started. Just get a couple threads started on each of the bolts. We're not going to tighten anything yet, we just want it sitting loose on the frame rails. It may take some finesse to get the holes and the clamp lined up with the plow mount, and that is why we keep it loose for now.
Once you get those bolts in, make sure the plow mount is sitting straight with the frame rails. We can go ahead and tighten the bolts up. Make sure that you tighten the bolts evenly so that it's pulling the clamp straight towards the plow mount. That wraps it up.
Double-check your hardware. Make sure everything is tight. Enjoy your Tusk SubZero Snowplow.
