    Jeep looks awesome. How did you mount the lights on the hard top? I'm picking up my plow for my jeep tommorow.. should have some picks in a few days.

    The hardtop is only for the winter,in the summer this will be my truck to go check on the crew. So I took a piece of 12x12 1/8 thick flat stock, painted both sides and then used fast set windshield uratheane. This stuff is not cheap about 20 bucks a tube but if both surfaces are clean and dry it will hold forever. Got this light off of ebay for $120 bucks. It is very bright.

    Regards Mike

    Been busy trying to get it ready, still have a few things to do, but we can plow with it if we need to.

    I like it...i'll be operating a similar setup as soon as I can sell my bike and get a Jeep Wrangler...it will be my daily driver and "smaller event" driveway rig.
    How much the Blizzard set you back if I may ask?

    I paid Jerre $2500.00 installed, came with a extra hose and he just serviced it while I was there. he had to make a custom mount fir it also. Plus the gas to get get to Erie PA but to spend as day hanging with Jerre is priceless IMOP.

    I think once you use the Jeep, you wont want to use the truck on driveways at all.
    That controller is HUGE
    I was thinking of a blizzard for my Jeep, is that a speed wing?
    let us know how you like it

    No its a custom set of wings made from a old 680LT if I am not mistaken.

    About half of my driveways are either a circle at the end or a courtyard, plowing them with the big trucks was slow and a pain in the a**. This should speed things up a bit and I now have a back up truck.

    makes sense to me.

    Most of my driveways (I only do driveways, and have one very small 4plex drive) are in town 2 car drives... not much room to maneuver on the road.

    Got two myself...like them better than my automatic.

    One word of advise.....clutches are real easy to roast when the snows heavy or sig ice build up...the reason why the employees drive the auto.

    Can you post pics of the back side of the plow, I'm curious to see how the wings are attached. Looks great!
