I need to put a plow on a 93 Jeep Wrangler YJ (Stock Ht, 4L, 5spd, hardtop) and have found a used Snow-way plow for sale online. It looks like the blade is steel and not the normal poly that I'm used to seeing when I've been searching for something to put on it.
I'm waiting to hear back from the seller, but my question is does anyone know if Snow-way made a plow with a steel blade? He indicated it was 72x16" which is smaller then the 22 series everyone talks about on here. He said he used to run it on a Geo Tracker.
Otherwise any other suggestions of what would be a good lightweight plow for a 1/4 mile gravel driveway would be appreciated. Cost is also a limiting factor which is why I'm looking at a used one. I do have the ability to make a custom bracket/mount if needed. Thanks in advance.
Adding (making) wings might be an option to gain some extra width. I attached a pic of the
steel Snow-way plow for sale and an image I found online as an example of what I'd like mine to look like. Any ideas if the mount in the example is something still available commerically or need to be fabbed up?
By the looks of the one for sale and the example I attached, I would only need to fabricate the lower bracket correct? I'm used to seeing the hydraulic arm/lights above the bumper by the grill, but I like the Snow-way setup better. Found a Service manual online (http://www.snoway.com/service/Parts%.../97100198g.pdf) that will help out.
Hydros work fine on this unit but no lighting harness, he's asking $500.
72 inch blade is NOT wide enough for a YJ. I have a 78 inch on mine, and at full angle, is NOT as wide as the jeep. My jeep came with maniac wheels on it though, for a stock YJ, 78 will do the job. For mine, really need an 84 to do it right.
