Hello,

I have a Warn 2500 winch installed on the 2016 Grizzly. I'm looking for a plow for this winter but what do I need to make this work? Would I have to remount my winch or do anything different or can I simply add a plow and the plow mount?

I'm open for recommendations on what plow and what size. Anything with a rubber tip/blade to help reduce ruin a brand new 300ft driveway?

Google is your friend as is You Tube, lots of examples of midmounts/front mounts/complete plow kits.


I use a midmount and a heavy duty plow, probably get more snow then most at 9,000 ft. Use the winch with a pulley for the plow itself. I think there was a thread on this a few weeks back.

I'll be putting a KFI Open trail 48" on my 2016 grizzly this year. Had the same plow but 66" on my wolverine rspec last year. Excellent plow for the price.

On your 2016 Grizz, I'd definitely recommend NOT going with the 48". I did, and wish I had gone with 54", and maybe 60", and that's on my narrower 450. I barely plow a wide enough track for my tires when the blade is angled, and that's with a plow wing on one side.

Shorter the blade the longer it takes to plow. Longer it takes to plow the less time I have to spend being whined at by the old lady.

I've plowed with a 54 and wished it was a bit longer. It's fine for straight blade, but when you angle it, you're nearly driving in the snow cut edge.
I have owned 60" plows now for years and would never want a smaller plow.

I do lots of plowing and have never had an issue pushing 60" of plow blade.

Forgot to mention plow width, agree with all the above as the Griz will handle easy enough. My blade is modified to a little over 66" and with chains on the rear and a few bags of sand it will do the job, 4 ft can be a challenge to get the first pass at times and that is when it is best to angle the blade and hang on.

I have the Warn Front Mount 60 inch plow setup on my 2016 Grizzly. Wouldn't go any other way. You need at least the 60 inch blade so you can plow with an angle and keep the wheels inside the plowed area. I put on the front mount because it is quicker to install then the mid mount and you don't loose any ground clearance. With the mid mount, you have two tables extended below your skid plates. At least there were the last time I looked at mid mounts. The only pain you are going to have is you will need to detach your winch to install the plow mounting bracket. It mounts under the winch. I have had no problems plowing and look forward to doing it in the winter. Gives me an excuse to bring out the Grizz.

Thanks for all of the help guys and girls! I'm looking into all of the information found online and here.

So, I'm fairly young and have never plowed anything before and I just poured a new driveway at my house. I'd hate to scratch it up so is a rubber tip on the blade a thing or would that just be a pain in the ass and pat it down more making it slippery.

Last year my local township tried a rubber wear bar on one of there trucks... all it did was HOP when he tried to corner and I made quite the racket. If you use a molded bear bar you shouldn't mark your driveway but it will wear quickly unless you use skids.

What kind of driveway do you have? I have asphalt and run my steel bar without any skids and have never seen scratches.

If you want to set it up like a truck, Dennis Kirk has everything you'd need to put an electric lift and hydro angle actuators on your plow. Two separate kits, both for atvs, totaling about $1500 total. A little steep, but it'd be pretty sweet!
