You should look at the plastic/composite plows with the metal frame. They are supposed to be lighter and would be better for a jeep. Idk how much they cost or how good they actually are but I see them on smaller SUV's a lot in New Hampshire

None. If I want to beat something up it's going to be a 4x4 pick up.

Should have made it simpler for you Tom, Everyone that is running a snow plow..that O.K.?

My Plow people say there is very little weight difference in the composite blade and the steel blade.

See a lots of plows on Jeeps in the Midwest, never heard the Jeeps couldn't handle them.

Just wanted to know the type preferred for the Jeep owners that were using them, don't really need a lecture on if it's good or bad thing.

Been running a Fisher "Homesteaded" for the last 3 years with no problems. Weighs about 240lb. Left, Right, up and down, controled from the inside. Cost around $3,200 installed. Works good for a small lot or driveway.

Boss

Having a new boss 7 ft poly installed on my 2012 unlimited sahara 4 door. 4200 out the door. It took me 2 weeks to find someone that knew anything about putting one on a jeep. After calling 5 boss dealers and inquiring, 4 told me it cannot be done the jeep wouldn't handle it. I ask how can that be, I have a 6 ft poly on a polaris ranger! The boss weighs in at 375 lbs. Boss says the jeep will handle it, but Jeep doesn't recommend. Go to youtube and you will see a 4 door pushing with a boss. Will post up pics when my install is complete.

I have a 2000 TJ with a Snow-way 22 series plow on it. It's a snow plowing machine. The only issue I have had is that when the plow is up it really weighs the front of the jeep down. I started a thread about this and there were a lot of good suggested fixes. People have putting plows on jeeps forever. Anybody that says it's not doable or not a good set up has never used one - some things you just can't figure out from reading the JK forum.

That one. It is a receiver mounted plow without hydraulics. I just plow my lot with it and nothing else.

P.R. Was it hard to put a receiver hitch on the front of the Jeep to mount the Snow Pro?

I had a boss that insisted on plowing the used car lot I worked at with a Rubicon in 4H with a stick shift. In two storms 8"+ he burnt up two clutches. When I told him to try 4L, and not let the snow get too deep he didn't want to hear it. He said it moves too slow and burns too much gas. I guess a clutch job was cheaper.

My boss poly locks to the ground for back drag. 375lbs. They are both sharp plows. Went with the boss because of the solid piston up/down that locks. Please pm me after the first use and I will as well. Would love to trade opinions on how the actually plow compared to each other. Plus I think it would be good for anyone considering a plow. I did drive 72 miles @ 70 mph with mine on and no issues. I was concerned about airflow and overheating but to my delight, no probs. water temp good, tranny temp good. How about you do far?

Plowed all last season with no problem. With the SNOW DOGG you can lock it down or let it float to back drag. Only bad thing is 8 MPG plowing,16 the rest of the time.

tom b what suspension do you have on your Jeep? To pick up a 400lb plow and have what appears to be no visible squat is impressive.

To all you plowing Jeep's I have plowed with trucks for years and always seen Jeep's never with 7 1/2 plows though. They look great and keep us posted on how they plow. It would be great to have something smaller than a 3/4 ton pickup in some of these gas stations

I thought Jeeps were made to plow, It beats shoveling.

Exactly. I love snow plows, when they are on someone else Jeep. I guess I could use it to dirt around in my front yard.

I don't quite know what to say I've been plowing snow since I've had a drivers licenses and this is the first I've ever seen on a jeep with a plow. I think its crazy I would sooner take the money for a brand new plow and purchase a beater like an old ranger or toyota and a used plow. I've seen 1 ton dump trucks with plows go through a tranny in one season. The abuse is not worth it.

Never seen a plow on a Jeep? They are driveway plowing machines. No other vehicle can compare to a Jeep with a plow doing residential driveways..

I run a 7'6" Snoway with down pressure. The plow itself is an oldie but works flawlessly and the down pressure is invaluable.

I use a SnowSport with my TJ. Love the thing. I do my acreage and my small commerical building (2 parking lots) with it. It would obviously NOT be a good plow for a commercial snow removal business to use - but for residential use and lite commercial it's an awesome set up and won't tear up your Jeep or or grass or your landscaping or your concrete...

Isn't the point of owning a Jeep that it doesn't matter if the street or driveway gets plowed?
