    Hello Pearcelawn,

    Do you have picture of your ranger set up? I am considering a plow and I do like the sno-way 22 with the same options as you. Did you have to do any modifications on your truck? Also how much should I expect to pay for the same? (the dealers are slow to respond)

    thank you very much

    Branko

    Prices vary with dealer, buying power and shipping costs play a huge roll in final cost. every dealer sets their own retail and installed price:salute:

    Glad you're considering the Snoway, great Driveway units. The Down Pressure is awesome for back dragging.

    Here's the pics when it was new. Except for a few scratches it looks the same and works as good as it did then.

    Zero mods to the truck.

    I bought 3 years ago so I am sure my price isn't even relevant any more.

    Any other ? just let me know.

    And welcome to Plowsite!!

    Do you sell Snoway?
    I would only buy 1 plow probably the 22 (the widest) with down pressure and wireless joystick. I drive 1999 Ranger 4x4 off road 4.0l V6 flare side.
    Just give me a ball park figure without installation at brankob@pobox.sk

    thanks

    Great Truck... I love my setup. If I ever do it again I'd love to try the 26 instead of my existing MT :)

    Timbrens are great. Make sure you have the Trans Cooler, and also swap out the 265/70/16s with 245/75/16 Load E tires. You'll be glad you did. I get away 2wd for most of the time except for decent grades. What size engine do you have?

    I had the same problem... I don't have the Air Foil. For me, I keep it at Max up and it didn't get past 2/3s on the temp gauge. My Trans Gauge hasn't moved if any.

    The Light Bar was a cheap Ebay Find, and I have my strobes in the head/tail/cab lights. Although I like the blue on blue top light :)

    If you swap those tires out (looks like you have 15s) you'll see a world of difference in 2wd plowing. I had the crappy stock Goodyear 265s and the the Wrangler Silent Armors, Bridgestone Revos, or Firestone Destination AT all seem to be the top 3 tires of choice on this site. I went with the Load E tires just in case.

    I do wish I had a Sport 5.9 though so I didn't have to worry about the chrome on the truck rusting :(

    Put a plow on the tracker :)
