    Nice Setup!
    Where in MA, the street looks kind of familiar for some reason.

    Looks good. How much did it make the front of the truck sag? Did you crank the torson bars on the ranger to make it sit up higher in the front?

    If you need ranger help, info, whatever, Check out www.TheRangerStation.com

    Best darn ranger site on the web, though Im probally alittle bias since im deeply involved with it.

  7. Nice plow! It's nice to see someone else with a plow on their Ranger, I have one on my '02 FX4.

    Curtis is the best choice for a ranger IMO, snoway and blizzards mounts are ugly.

    Yeah I like the way the Curts mount looks on my truck its almost invisible against the black. I shouldnt have a problem being a 5 speed in all if I stay at about 10 mph, I only plan on doing driveways.

  15. I have a sno-way and yes, the mounts aren't very 'fashionable'. I don't really care though because in the summer I take it off and in the winter people can see that I have a plow!

    I will always leave my mount on because I like the way it looks and I think it will be more of a pain to take it on and off. Also tthe electrical will hang done and will look awful. Hey cja1987 why do you not have any pics of your truck on either snowplowing contractors, or on this site?

  17. Taking mine off is by no means a simple job, but it's not the hardest thing to do. One of the biggest reasons I pull it off is because my truck sees quite a bit of off road time and the mount reduces my ground clearence. Plus it got a nice fresh coat of paint this summer.

    if you are just doing driveways and want the original look, the homesteader lets you take the brackets off the truck that is why i bought it i haven't had a problem with the plow and i plow 18 driveways and a small parking lot (10 spaces)

    I was going to go with the homesteader, but I wanted a more rugged look and the Curtis I bought looks like it can take more plowing than the homesteader. I was on the fence about both and went with the one that I thought would be a little stronger. But I do agree with what everyone has said about your homesteader it looks great and it looks great on your truck. Its great to see some of Rangers out there are getting plows put on them. What do you do for weight in your bed? I planned on buying 2 45 gallon tubs and filling them with salt for weight and so if people want their driveways salted.
