    Anyone have any pics of the new style (JK) Jeeps with a plow? I really like the new Jeeps and would like to do some light plowing with it. I would like to see and hear from some owners first. Thank you.

    '07 JK Plow

    I have been trying to down load pictures of my '07 Wrangler with a plow, but everytime I try, I can't seem to get the pictures to transfer. Just bought a new computer and will try and see if it can down load the pictures. The JK is a great vehicle to plow with. I have a 7 1/2 ft. Boss SportDuty.

    No extra help on the front end. Hardly drops at all. I have had 3/4 ton trucks with plow packages that dropped more then the Jeep does.

    The light is a magnet mount. Metal plates were attached to the roof with silicon.

    That looks good!

    Just be carefull with the light. Silicone isnt always the best as an adheasive. Once it starts to peel it wont take much for it to come off.. I do like that idea though.

    If your Jeep could talk it would say: "Put this plow on your truck!, take me 4x4'n!"
    To add to that...the Jeep probabley is probabley worth double then what that Ford is worth...lol.
    Only joking.
    My buddy bought that same Jeep last year and we took it climbing and mud running. It handled great and got over every obstacle. We take it to Wellsville, Ohio where there are 100's of acres of nothing but hills, trails, mud and rocks.

    Good luck to you while you plow in luxury this year!

    I used to have my light mounted the same way (steel plate and magnets) tree branches would knock it off. It would swing on the power cord and dent the door or hood. I now have a ratchet strap bolted to where the magnets are on the light, the strap goes front to rear. never had it come off since.

    Here is a shot of my 2008 Wrangler with a 22 Snoway. Worked great last year, no problems at all. I could only download 1 pic as it said my others had already been downloaded under "new plow setup" title. You can look there if you want to see a couple other pics.

    d70stang- what kind of deflector is that? On Sno-way's accessory part of their site I have only found a 3 piece "E-z fit". Is there a different name I can search or is it not a Sno-way brand? Thanks.

    Only mods to the front end were 1.75" spacers on the front coils. The deflector is the one piece design. I beleive it is a snoway model. My receipt list part number 99100490, purchased for $75.00 last year. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the part number. My local dealer is going to make some calls to his distributor. His book only lists the 3 piece. I hope it wasn't discontinued.

    And does it ride high in the front with the plow off?

    I just bought the deflector last year so I wouldn't think it would be discontinued yet. I bought it from Shorewood RV in Anoka, MN. As far as the ride height with the plow off, it just seemed to level it. I thought that from the factory these JK's lean forward quite a bit. Once I put the spacers in, now it looks level to me. I actually like it a bit better this way.

    I just got the SnowDogg on my 08 yesterday.

    I like the way it looks, rides, and handles. The relatively light 400 lb ound plow barely drops the front end. (the Jeep has a 2" lift)

    Looks nice. Do you have a hard top or are you staying with the softtop all winter?
