    i have an 02 sport track was thinking about putting a blade on it as an extra/back up truck to my 94 chevy 2500 w/ 05 8ft ultra mount blade instead of buying a questionable older plow truck?

    just curious if anyone uses one. see tons of other jeeps, and suvs with them.

    I have seen some with plows around. I don't know what plow you would put on one. You have to remember that it's a light duty truck,it will not plow like a big dog. It probably has a 130 amp alternator in it,put a big battery in it and see if Timbrens are available for it. Add a towing type trans cooler,manual hubs and tube sand in the short bed for ballast. I used a Bronco II for 3 seasons and it was great for condo's and small lots. I broke a few front axles shafts and u-joints tho.

    I had a Blizzard 680LT on my 04' Ranger FX4 II which is bascially the same frame. Truck plowed great for a light duty, plow was light enough to not make it sag and light enough to muscle around in the garage when not in use. Now, I believe Blizzard has a 7'2'' light duty also. You should check into it.

    I was thinking about getting one of those for more room, but stayed with the Ranger. I think if the frame is the same as the Ranger a 7 foot Curtis will fit. If you get any of the above mentioned I would like to see some pictures.
