    I'm a newbie in the snowplowing business, and am looking for a little advice on what a good plow for a Jeep Wrangler might be. Also any suggestions on what I may have to do to prepare the Jeep for the snow, trans. cooler, suspension, oil cooler? Any and all info would be helpful and greatly appreciated! ussmileyflag,

    What and how much do you intend to plow?

    I would either replace the front suspension or put Timbrens up front. Stay away from the Western Suburban model and go with another model of Western (Mid-Weight). You can also put a Fisher and Boss plow on the Jeep. Go with what your closest dealer sells and can service quickly. You may want to talk with other plowers in the area you live in.

    About 15 driveways. Not a whole lot,but what the hell do I know? I'm not looking for a big blade, most of the driveways are pretty tight.

    Jk plow - Why stay away from the suburban model? If I went with the mid weight model, do I need to beef up the front end? If so, in your opinion, whats the best cost effective way to do this? Damn, I just typed like my boss sounds!!!

    Thanks for your replies gents, it is much appreciated!ussmileyflag

    Put a Snow Dogg on my 2000 Jeep Wrangler last year. Works my drive great. Didn't add any extra ballast, nor any lift up front. Got about an inch of front end "drop" vs when not mounted. I don't go far with the plow, mainly my 500' drive, You'll LOVE the turn radius of the Jeep on driveways!

    I'd add air shocks to the front and some counter weight to the rear to hold down the back, and get more traction.
    get the biggest plow they will put on. I have repaired my friend Meyer plow ... a lot. I like fisher I think it is the easiest to put on and take off. I also have a boss plow
