    I am supposed to put on a Snoway 6.8' with down pressure on my 2000 Wrangler, tommorow. Do you guys think that is the best way to go for my ride? I will be doing driways and small lots.

    That sounds like a good setup on a Jeep, you don't really want to go any bigger then that. The front axles really are not strong enough for anything bigger. Check your unitized wheel bearings for play at the end of the season. Jeeps don't have servicable wheel bearings you have to replace the whole hub at about $140 a side. To check jack up a tire, place hands at 6 and 12 and try and wiggle the tire. ANY play at all means they are wore and will effect tire wear. Other than that happy plowing!!

    I have a '98 TJ with the same plow setup and I have zero complaints. Great choice, good luck with it.

    Well I got my new Snoway 6.8' installed today. It sags my jeep a bit, but I will put some in the back to even things out. Can't wait to use it!!!

    I got the ST. I am glad I did I think it's the perfect size for my Jeep. Since this is still my only ride atleast for another year (sooner or later the family truckster must be purchased), I didn't want to get anything big and heavy. With the plow up I have about 2" between the bumpstop and bottom of spring. Which is Ok I hope. I will post some pics as soon.

    Hey you guys with the little plow trucks can get in where I can't with an F-250. Don't let them put ya down. I plowed with a Bronco II for 5 years. I was the driveway king, $15 a pop every 15 minutes or less. Small lots, tight areas you can't beat a small truck. Idiot guy at a plow shop asked me " know what we call your truck?" Sidewalk plower! and I said YEAH and there's a lot of sidewalks in NE Ohio.

    Well that is why I got it. So I can get into spots and driveways myfriend can't. He got a big Dodge and a big plow. So that is where I come in. Ofcourse with my luck as soon as I put a plow on, no snow in sight.:(:realmad:

    I got the light set up on mine. The only reason I got it is, I checked a few places for prices and a couple charged $500 extra for the lights. Found a guy who put them on for the same price as the otherw without the lights, so I figured why not.

    if you don't mind me asking how much was that snow-way. I'd sure like to get a small plow like that for my TJ too!

    That is great that you got the lights for free basically.......I was quoted $500 also......I may get them in the future...but so far I have not needed them......

    Mine was about $3600 for the 6'8" ST model....

    Was that price for it installed? I'm kicking myself for selling my 79 F350 and now am looking for a plow for either my CJ or my TJ...

    I paid $ 3500.00 with labor & tax. I sure hope I am gona make that back this season. I tried getting a used plow. Even got a free blade with A-frame, but to put it all together would of cost me about 2 G's, so I just went for a new plow.

    What kind of blade was that, and what size?
    I have an old CJ with a probably older plow, and I'd love to replace the moldboard because it is actaully rusted through in a few spots...
    Let me know what you have if you're trying to get rid of it.
