    Jeeps like to plow, thats what I like to hear. I am in the process of hooking up a 83 CJ7 with a plow. I will post some pics when I am finished. Had a dusting in Jersey on friday night so I better get moving on it. Those are some nice pics of the rig. Love the softop, looks really good.

    I got a hardtop if you want it. Jeeps may like to plow but after a long night in that you won't.

    what was the beacon attached too? Seem as if a few hard bounces and it would go flying off the top...

    Nice YJ. Running stock suspension up front?

    I'm thinking about getting one of those snowsports for my Cherokee, since it's a unibody. Then again, seeing that, maybe I'll just switch over to a wrangler....

    Iam not trying to make you do something you don't want to do but... You can plow with a cherokee. I have a curtis 7' on mine and western, blizzard and meyer make mounts. Unibody is a consideration but i know a few people who have plowed with cherokees with out a problem if you are careful. Snowsport will do the job, kind of, they tend to ride up over the snow when its wet and heavy. I plowed with my cherokee for the first time yesterday, it did great for the short time i used it. Pushed 6" of wet snow over about 75 yards very well. Just something to think about.

    I have absolutely no problem with anybody telling me anything! Especially if it's advice.

    After a bit more searching, I'm looking at Sno-Way, since they have that clear plastic blade, and the weight is something like 300 pounds, including the mount. Which is probably just perfect for my Cherokee.

    If I were to go with a SnowSport, I'd have to tinker with it to make the blade remotely moveable. Some sort of electric gear system. We'll see......

    Any issues with the rear locker and Swampers for plowing? I know its not a great combo on ice (been there, done that). Ive got basically the same setup and having trouble finding a plow setup that will work with my winch on and with the amount of lift.

    Lockers shouldn't hurt...they might even help. Best bet....check www.jeepsunlimited.com. Ask someone who has a YJ with lockers.

    Hey DJDarknez,
    Ive been a member of JU for about 5 years and have gotten alot of good info off there and on occation, given some good info.
    But, there arent many on JU that plow. Most everyone builds up to offroad. For offroading I can say that my Detroit locker is right on time. The reason I question it for plowing, especially for a short wheelbase vehicle, is that a plow tends to kick a vehicle sideways when its angled. Lockers, while fantastic going staight ahead, can be a little hairy when a side force is applied during a low traction situation.
    I dont know. Ive been offroading for a number of years so driving with a locker is old news but my plowing experience is limited to a few outings last year with my F350 w/ Boss V plow, thats why I ask.
