    What's are a few of the ightest plows and v shaped plows 6.5 feet or less weight? Also, what would they weight?

    Same for mounts - what are a couple of the lightest with hydraulic controls, and howmany pounds?

    Did some checking for you,

    Western 425lbs 6'6" steel
    Boss 656lbs 7'6" steel
    Curtis 460lbs 7' poly

    The v plows are very heavy more then these striahgt blades I think boss makes the smallest one at 7'6" and thats for 1/2 ton trucks.So I dont think a v plow is the way to go with your jeep.There is also snoway,Ive seen them on jeep wranglers around here,so that might be a way to go for you too.Hope this helps too.

    Thanks. I checked the Curtis. Looks good. Any idea how much they cost?

    Also, I thought I saw a Meyers about 350 lbs. Any info on them?

    I'll check the snoway - is that the brand?

    That Curtis looks nice, but the Meyers TM-6 I just saw says 360 lbs 'complete' whatever complete means. Plus their EZ Mount system looks similar to the Curtis you mentioned. Do you know how they compare as far as mounting ease and cost?

    As to metal vs poly. I'm surprised. guess i don't care what iti is made of as long as it's LITE and strong enough. Someone must make a poly or plastic lite duty blade without the heavy bracing/ backing that weighs a couple hundred pounds. they must. i know nothing about plows but it's just common sense to me that someone in this country must make one. even if it's only five feet wide, i don't care; i'll just make another pass. Wonder if five feet is wider than my Grand Cherokee Limited??

    I haven't been to their site lately, but their plows specialize in being light and strong. I have a steel 25-series Snoway, and I put it through some rough commercial use, and it has held up perfectly.

    Thanks - so far this looks like the lightest, best way for me to plow my own driveway. I sent snoway below email asking for info.

    I want the lightest least expensive plow I can mount to a unibody grand cherokee limited. i'm interested whethor or not it is recommended to plow with my vehicle as it has 170K miles and at the end of it's life; don't mind welding/disabling air bag, or other modifications. If you have a video on how the light weight plows you have mount and dismount, please send that also. Thanks.
