    Does anyone know what brand of plow I should use to push snow, with a Jeep Wrangler? Is there a lightweight type out there that I can use? How should I beef up my front suspension to accomodate a plow?

    Yes you will need to beef up your front suspension a little. Most people, including me, find the conventional way (timbren load boosters) to make Jeeps ride way to stiff. Best thing for the Jeep is to get some airbags for the front end. You should also have some counterweight in the back, generally around 400 LBS for a Jeep Wrangler placed over or rearward of the rear axle.

    As far as plows go, look into the Fisher LD series (come in 6'9" and 7'6" you will want the 6'9"), Western 6'6", Blizzard 680 or 720 (id recommend the 720), Curtis 7' and Snoway 6'5" -7'. Boss also makes a 7' but iam not sure if they have a mount for the wraglers or not, id imagine they do.

    I have 93 wrangler with a snowbear, and love plowing with it. Im looking for a newer one now. Im thinking about getinga snowway plow becouse it has downpresuer, so the when you back drage that plow wont flow over the snow. Do anyother companys offer downpressure for plows?

    Get the sno way. I just installed mine. You get the lightweight poly plow with the heavyweight performance with the down pressure. Snoway is the only company with down pressure. Patented! Check out my thread in the snoway section about the install in the next few days. . .
