A little Snow dogg help!

    I have a 95 Jeep Wrangler that is getting a new plow. I had used a 1978 Meyers for the last 38 years on a Cj-5 and a 94 wrangler. It is shot. Time for a new one. So, decided that snow dogg was the way to go. However, I am trying to decide on which plow to purchase. The Wrangler has 6 leaf springs all the way around and the mount for the new plow has been fabbed using some Meyer's ideas and others that I have developed for strength over the years. I tried a VMD on the jeep and low and behold, it lifts it right up and does not sink more than about a half inch. Have not put on the Md but at 300 pounds lighter I doubt there would be much movement there. I know the VMD is designed for the 1/2 ton pickups but it sure would be nice to have the V for my drives with lots of drifting in them!

    So the big question, What do you think about going with the VMD? I would probably add a couple hundred pounds ballast in the back as I am sure there would be a lot of bouncing on the road, but does it seem worth the expense and whatever else may occur?? Thanks for any and all replies.

    I would definitely go that route. There's another user on these forums who uses a larger V Plow on his wrangler and seems to love it. Personally, I'm all about the biggest plow you can fit, replacing some front end parts every few years is worth the added efficiency

    Thanks for the info. If you should find out who it is that has the V on the Wrangler I would appreciate a heads up so I can send him a message and
    see what he thinks etc. Thanks

    Go to the Jeep section. It is the Boss UTV plow for UTV's. Problem is, at least where I live there is only one Boss dealer and he will not put anything on that the manufacturer lists for a vehicle due to liability.

    Can be done if you have the skills and a welder or you know someone that will do it on the side.

    To Harleyjeff, I am assuming (not always a good thing to do!!) that since you have the snow dogs, you mean going with the snow dogg V as well. Thanks.

    Well, turns out that the V just will be too heavy so am going with the md 75 instead. Really a shame as I was kind of looking forward to not being thrown around even in my own driveway by drifts. Oh well, perhaps something better will come along in the future. I can see already that this will take some more modification as well. Don't like how far forward everything sits.

    Meyer VLD is only 580lbs vs Dogg VMD at 700.. Might work for you...
