    Any one plowing with a 94 blazer if so what plow and what did you add on the front end.

    Just picked one up looking at either the hiniker plows or a boss plow with the trip edge

    HAY......Are you talking a full size Blazer?

    If so I had a 94 2 door full size with a Western
    7 1/2 rig. The truck did have the VYU plow prep
    pkg. too.

    It plowed GREAT for 3 hard NY winters....But had
    to trade it for a pickup !....................geo

    The only problem plowing with a Blazer, or any similar type of vehicle is the visability when backing.

    full size blazer

    Yes I am talking about a full size Blazer 2 door sport , it has the 5.7 350 motor. My thinking was due to the shorter wheel base it would be alot better for plowing.
    Also have a full size Chevy extended cab short bed I was thinking about using as a back up.



    Thanks for the reply

    Blazers are great plow trucks. I have a friend who got me interested in plowing that has 2 blazers and swears by them for plowing.

    the blazer will plow just fine with timbrens installed. a 7.5 is the best size plow for them. fisher western are great brands for a blazer:)

    I asked my buddy and he doesnt have anything. On his 91, he's changed the trans once when he first got it 9 years ago, He's never done any front end work on it ever, but he did say the steering gearbox is wearing out (Seals). He's got 110k on it too! His 96, Nothing has ever been done to it, and hes got 84k on that one. Both of them dont even Squat when the plows are mounted. It looks like Im gonna be driving the 91 this season, so I dont have to hurry to get my F250 up and ready to plow quite yet. I do want to have it done tho so I can use it for a backup if I have to.(That is if it ever snows!)

    The last 10+ years I've plowed with a cj-7 (350 chevy) and just put a meyers 7.5 with the e-60 pump. Intalled it myself and was a piece of cake. I really like the remote controll feature. 1 hand on the steering wheel, the other on the shift lever holding the remote. Nice comfortable feature. Bought the plow on tuesday night and started installation weds and thursday night just before the storm. Took ALOT of getting used to and sure miss the jeep!

    The blazer turning radius is very tight a heck of alot tighter than my truck that is what got me wanting to put a plow on it leaning toward the boss straight blade
