7'6" Sno-way on a Wrangler?

Would a 7'6" Sno-way work on a Wrangler TJ or is it to wide? Got a line on a good used one but not sure about the width. Any input would be appreciated..

Go to their website and check their fit-up guide and it will tell you if it will work or not.

Thanks for the link. I plugged my vehicle in and it shows a 7'6" as an option!

Is there anyone out there with this set up on their Wrangler TJ? If so how do you like it?

What model Snoway? 7'6" is not too much but you will want air shocks and some counterweight.

I've got a 2480 on my 98 TJ. Swapped out front springs for taller/thicker (WJ if I recall) and it raised up front perfectly. Works fine for my needs (I'm not commercially plowing) There's a pict of my rig in another post.

Hey Basher, its an MT model. Thanks to your advice in my other thread I have decided to go with a Snoway. There are three good used ones in my area, two are 6'8" MTs and both with TJ mounts. The 7'6" MT is currently mounted on a 99 Chevy Silverado Z71 pickup. I can pick up the 7'6" for a fraction of the price of the other two and that is the only reason I am interested in it. I'm just not sure how difficult it would be to source a 3 pin mount for my TJ. Can the nose piece from the Chevy mount be reused with a TJ mount? Need to make a decision soon as the should have already been here...

Wpeterson47, thats a nice rig

Does the 7'6" come with a mount? The Tj plows are probably in better shape then the Pick up plow. Less weight against the same frame and less lever arm on the blade.

Yes the 7'6" comes with a mount but it for a 99 Chevy Silverado. Can the nose piece be reused if I am able to source a TJ mount? I hear what you are saying about the possible stress this particular plow has endured. I will keep that in mind. thanks

Not a good candidate for modification for the Jeep but a desirable mount never the less. You should offer it for sale on the site/craigslist/ebay/something you could see some $$$ return.

Have a 7'6'' 22 series on a 2004 wrangler.... its awesome.. 6'8'' would be to short ( when angled) IMO. Plus the jump from 6'8'' to 7'6'' was only around $100 more when I got mine, Thats a no brainer.... I'd do 7'6'' ALL the way... PM me if you have any Questions about 22 seriees snoways.

Ended up picking up the 7'6" today. Everything functioned like it should and was a giveaway price! I was also able to source a mount for my TJ from a fellow forum member. Cant wait to mount it up! Thanks everyone for the help..

Good, wider is better. I used to think narrower would be better for the vehicle, but wider will require fewer passes and less shifting the transmission between reverse and forward, which I would prefer.

True, and to update what Wpeterson said, if you need to update your front springs due to sag, you can either go with a Rubicon spring which, although it still is a progressive spring and is stock height, has a stiffer spring rate which allows for less droop in the front or go with a V8 Grand Cherokee(ZJ) coil spring (96-98). This front spring will give you a little over an inch of lift in the front and are cheap cheap from the salvage yard.

So I received my mount in the mail Thursday morning and had it on the TJ by the afternoon. Used the nose piece from the Chevy p/n 99100302 which is basically the same as 99100301 nose piece but with three holes instead of one. Had to modify it by cutting off the top portion of the extra mounting holes as they were coming into contact with my bumper and steering gear box. Now off to wire up the lights. I'm hoping I can modify the light harness from the Chevy to use in the TJ. Electrical work make me

99 Silverado. Not sure what the plugs should look like but I believe they are missing from this harness. Looks like he cut them off possibly.

I am looking at a 7.5 Stainless Sno-Way right now for a 2000 Wrangler TJ we picked up. It too came off a Chevy. So I might be needing a TJ mount for a Sno-Way also. What did you ever do about the light hookup?
