    I want to put one on my 2000 ford explorer. I want to see if anyone has one mounted on any ford explorer older than 2002. The ploew looks sweet on the jeep..... Does the plow work well?

    I have mine on a 2004 TB LS 4x4. How high off the pavement is the bottom of the blade on your '08 when it's fully up?

    This is my only complaint so far.

    i forget, like 8" or something like that. I had it on a f150 which sat higher so the plow was like 2' off the ground on that. they are cute but they get the job done and weigh as much as a man does. my step father and I carried it from my back yard to my shed this past spring. Do that with any other plow! full hydraulics and no wear on the front suspension, i'm not disapointed at all in this plow!!

    Just had one mounted on my 2004 Explorer - love it. The front end moves less than 1/4" when I lift the plow. Truck doesn't even know it's there.

    I had the opposite problem. It'd dig all of the gravel off if I wasn't careful. I put on the poly shoes and it works great now.
    You might want to check your "scrape lock" adjustment.
