    I had a s-15 with a Fisher on it and it was a great driveway and small parking lot rig.

    Looks good and have a good winter

    Did you beef up the front suspension at all?

    nope, im only doing my driveway and my dads with it. It doesnt seem to squat much when I lift up the plow.

    Good deal. I just finished up a 97 Explorer 4.0 with a 7' Curtis Homepro. The front sagged quite a bit so I replaced the torsion bars with new ones and the strongest ones available. Works much better now.
    Hope the Jimmy holds up well....

    Just a thought, you may want to move the controls to the right side of the wheel. It is a juggle to run a plow and a manual, especially if you have to juggle which hand is the wheel hand. If it is all on the right it is at least manageable. Just a thought. Good luck!
