    Hey guys just bought this last week. Only have a quick cell phone pic from my road trip up to the Maine coast this weekend. No plow yet. I had a 2003 Rubicon with a fisher SD on it and it was great. Leaning towards that again. any suggestions or comments appriciated. It is an automatic and I have a hard top. Planning on some air bags up front to help with the suspension. Thanks

    Nice Ride! Do you have the old push plates from your 03? I just bought an SD for my 04 and need the plates. Any regreats with the SD? Would you consdier the HT it's a little lighter. Did you use air bags or timbrens?

    No problems whatsoever with the SD. Sold the jeep and plow as a package so I have nothing left. I uses the airbags and they worked great. Didnt affect the ride with the plow off and helped keep the jeep level with the plow on. I am probably getting another Fisher SD for this jeep. I had the 6'8" before and think i will be going with the 7'6". Or i'll get the smaller one and have some wings fabbed up. what size did you get?

    I went with the 7'6". I went back and forth between the SD and the HT. I like that the HT is lighter and has a steel edge, but still is trip edge rather then full trip but didn't find I good deal on one. I bought a 2 yr old SD for 1800 complete other than plates. What kind of airbags did you buy and how much were they?

    They were made by airlift. Here is a link. http://shop.airliftcompany.com/dyn_search_vehicle?k=0

    I bought mine at a local shop but this is the company and I believe this is your year. Just check the variables on the left side to make sure i got your options right.

    I recently bought a 4 door wrangler as well. Love it. I hope to put a 7'6" boss on it with a Artic plow partner on the back. Will post pics when I got it all together.

    When you install the air bags, do you have to have a compressor in the car or can you use an external compressor to adjust the pressure? I'm new to the air bag thing.

    Thanks

    You can do it either way but I'd recommend an on-board. you need to maintain 5/10 PSI at all times and the compressor does the maintenance for you. Allow bag pressure to get too low and you will pinch the bag.

    On board would be nice but I just set the pressure with my home compressor and went from there. Set it at 30 PSI and checked it frequently and it never leaked.
