    What models and years (going back to around 2004) of Jeep will handle my Snoway DB1037A 7 1/2 ' with power down? I've had it on 1996, 97 and 99 Tahoes.
    Will any Jeep handle it?
    Also, was there a change in Jeep front axles and suspension going back 5 to 10 years ago that I should know about for plowing? I'd like to get a Jeep this time.

    A Jeep and a Tahoe are 2 different things I think a 7.5' Plow on a Jeep would be too heavy and hard to push... That's just my opinion though

    Jeeps have NO problem pushing a 7 1/2 plow
    All jeep wranglers had a D30 F axle Except for Rubicons they have a D44. the D 30 will work just fine.

    Jeeps from 97 to present have coil springs. Jeeps before 97 have leaf springs. Which is better?... Coil

    you will be over weight with a 7 1/2 plow
