    Man i think that jeep will get a work out pushing that around. But im sure it can do it. The plow lights look so big on a jeep. Good luck.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing, but a couple other members on here have the same size blade with success,

    It's a sport duty lighter weight plow. Boss makes a mount for my Jeep. I was going to try and put my super duty plow on here, but after figuring what it would have cost to have a custom mount fabbed up and the hassle it would have been, I just opted to go with this plow. It weighs 420 pounds, less than some of the fishers and older snoways that guys have on the exact same Jeep. This plow is extremely well built, it compares to my super duty plows, but almost half the weight. As for the lights, they are huge, but surprisingly they really don't block my vision as much as you'd think,

    That thing is only 420 pounds? :eek:

    Good that Boss makes them so light, always cool to see smaller vehicles like Jeeps with plows on them.

    Sarcasm? Are you really shocked that such a big plow is only 420 pounds

    No I truly am shocked because I dont really keep up with any weights on plows. Even though its a light duty, my Fisher Mm1 8ft is in the high 800 pounds with the SnoFoil option. Provided its a heavy duty, it just seems weird that a plow a half a foot less wide is around 400 pounds less.

    Agree, I thought the same thing when I picked the plow up. But I think the Jeep will still push it around wesport

    About the same as an HT, or 7.5 LD - Fisher boy.....

    All 8 foot and larger Fishers are designated "Heavy Duty"

    That's sweet! A jeep with a plow is a monster driveway machine. You can turn very tightly with them

    You have to remember you're talking about 2 different grades of plows, FWIW an 8' Boss trip edge plow is 788lbs plus whatever the truck mount weights.

    A 22 series Snoway 7'6" is under 300lbs but again they are a different grade plow.

    That should work good. I know a guy that has a 1987 Cherokee with a 7.5' Meyer on it and it handles it with no probablems.

    Very nice!! Wouldn't mind having that setup to zip arround in and out of traffic and driveways. Some guys will never get it. If you dont need a f-350 with a v blade. why would you use one. I just put a 8ft western pro plus on a buddies f-250, so he can plow 4 drives!! He brags about his Bigger plow, untill people ask what he does with it, and his truck payment, and his plow payment??? Good luck. Snow will come!! It always does!!
