    I'm new to the forum -- wow, lots of great info and lots of helpful people!

    I currently plow (just my driveway, and my neighbor's) with a '53 Willys Pickup with 6 1/2' Fisher QS. It's an unbelievable combination, but the truck is not roadworthy -- strickly a yard vehicle. I have the opportunity to get a '94 Jeep Wrangler at a great price, and a guy in the local paper is selling a 6 1/2' Fisher MM with Jeep mount. I've searched the forum, and the Wrangler seems to be the perfect rig for my application.

    My question is: Is installing the plow and gear a do-it-yourself job? I'm plenty mechanical -- I do all the work on cars and on the Willys. It seems pretty straight foreward, but I'm hoping someone here has some first-hand experience.

    Thanks in advance.

    If your mechanically inclined,you should be able to install it.

    I'd recommend you download the PDF instruction guides,to make sure you are capable of it.Having the parts list is also nice,so you can make sure everything is there when you but the plow,and you can pick up anything that isn't.

    While installing the plow,add a set of Timbren load boosters.

    I'll second that. Two years ago I bought an used but reconditioned 6.5' Fisher plow. It was my first plow and I installed it myself on Toyota pickup. I did run into a few problems but everythings went out well after installation. That's because I downloaded the install guide on Fisher website and used them since the seller of the plow never bother to give it to me. :rolleyes:

    I think you should be able to do the installation fine. Electrical may be your toughest task I would image, but not too difficult.

    A plow installer once told me that installing a plow on a Jeep whether it be a Wrangler or a Cherokee is not that bad until the truck bites you and youre destined to get pinched a few times while installing it. Things can get tight.
