New guy...question bout 07-08 JK

What up guys.....so this was my first jeep and i love it... anyway i was wondering if you guys could help me out... I have acquired some rental properties..nothing to large 4 lots with about 10-15 cars per lot...nothing to big...I live in northern NJ and here with the snow its been a hit or miss but i am looking for a snow plow and was wondering what you guys would recommend... i have been looking at snoway, meyer, fisher.....seems the the snoway and fisher are the lighter plows and would probably cause less wear and tear on the front end... opinions and recommendations thanks....

I don't know a lot about JK's, but I know on all models before plows ran a rig into the ground. I don't really know about plows, I had an 85 chevy for my plow truck.

I think Boss & Meyers have an application for the JK. That said, Chrysler does not recommend using the JK for plowing. The frames on JKs are meant to collapse under load. Pushing around snow would likely wreak havoc on the frame.

thanks for the info guys, how different is the frame for 06-07 model? I know they were a complete redesign but what do you mean by collapse under load? Were the previous models built with that same thing in mind?

By collapse, I mean crush in a frontal impact. It is an occupant safety feature and makes replacing the front-end of a JK after a crash an easier/cheaper fix.

I do not recall reading of any problems with TJs or YJs being used for snow plowing. Just keep in mind, the TJ was produced through model year 2006. The newly designed JK started in 2007.
