    7.5' Fisher SD? Any timbrens or added weight in the rear? Just purchased an 2002 Wrangler.

    Its a 6'-9" LD with pro wings, the wings add 20 inches. Yes Timbrens installed in front, only dips about an inch when plow is up. Works very well. I think the LD model became the SD model now. As for weight in the rear, I have a small Toro 4/18 snow blower in the back with an extra gallon and a half of gas some tools, tow strap shovel, extra plow fluid, off road recovery kit and extra wiper blades. That's about it.

    Very helpful, thank you. Any issues with the heavier snowfalls?

    None, the Jeep is a tank I also attribute that to the best snow tires available Blizzacks. I have only needed to lock the axles I think twice since I owned the Jeep (2008) It just goes through it all. If its real deep I just plow more often.

    Is that vinyl or paint on the plow?

    I have a vinyl cutter and have wanted to do my plows. Keep us posted on how well it holds up.

    I do not have one. How ever I do change my trans fluid and filter after every tough winter. Knock on wood no trans issues at all.

    Hi Ken,

    Where did you have trans coolers installed? Or did you do it. Also what maintenance did you do recently.

    Thanks

    I DO NOT have an auxiliary (aftermarket) transmission cooler. Everything is factory. After this bad winter I had the following service done recently:

    1) Trans fluid and filter

    2) Oil change and filter

    3) lube

    4) transfer case fluid and check rear end oil.

    5) Flush coolant and new thermostat (never been done)

    I don't do this every year just after tough snow seasons.

    You locked the Tru-Loks? You have the locker mod?

    Yes I bought that mod off ebay.
    Mod allows axles to be locked in high range.

    Yep... wondering what you were in when you had to lock them? Meaning, were you stuck or in deep snow, ice...? With the Blizzaks?
