    I have a jeep with a 7ft standard western plow on it. I would like to get a back drag for it, what do I need to do and were do I buy a good and resonable priced.

    I know there is at leastone company that makes a hydraulic power trip for the front cutting edge to make it mor effective for back dragging. It is around 1200 dollars, but people I have talked to that have it swear by it. I just can't recall the manufacturer. If I do, I'll repost and let you know. I know it uses the stock pump on the plow, a new valve, and seperate switch

    Don't know if they offer one for your particular blade or not, but I know it's an option on some Western blades. Check with your Western dealer. I've never used one, so I can't speak to their effectiveness. . . .

    Go to www.backdragsnow.com. They make a blade for the western pro plow. It works great and its heavy duty 3/8 thick steel. They run $168.00 for a 7-6" Western pro plow.

    Or you could spend a morning in the shop and make it yourself for $20

    B&K, if you look in the western plow section there will be a folding one that a goy had done(cant remember name), but im going to make on like his for mine as it looks like it would last alot longer than boughten ones.
