    Jay,

    I encourage everybody to check out plowsite and join, hopefully he will. This is his first plow, doing about 15 driveways in his neighborhood....

    Not sure what his Dad plans on doing this winter though...!!!

    Just kidding!

    That looks like a great little driveway rig! It's a really nice jeep too, could use a set of timbrens maybe, but it looks like it will be a great setup.

    John-

    Timbrens might be nice over some of the bigger bumps, but raising the plow only drops the front end an inch to inch and a half...

    Does a really great job!

    Rob,

    Great looking setup!!! I am looking for a used wrangler to put a plow on. I was wondering what your plow setup cost....total out the door. I would be interested if you could share that with me.

    Thanks!

    Snow,

    Plow weighs in at #350 for the package.

    Most Wranglers won't need any suspension upgrades but mopar makes an air shock Kit for them. Search last year for threads on these. Part#'s were supplied. Air bags from Airlift and Firestone are also avail for alot of the smaller vehicles as well as the full size trucks.

    Standard controller is the Joystick control however the touch pad is avail for this model also.

    They only list 7'6" LD, 7'6", and 8'0" for straight blades. After that you get into either the 810 or 8611 Power Plow.

    I wanted a 10' straight blade for my 550, I like the funnels at each end of their straight blades, plus it would interchange with the 810 on my other truck. Unfortunately it was unavailable.
