    What plow would you guys suggest for a 2000 Jeep wrangler, 4x4, 5 speed. How many of you guys plow with a truck like this?
    How does it handle plowing? Can timbrens be installed on a Jeep Wrangler?:)

    Jeep Wrangler

    A Jeep Wrangler would make you an excellent plow truck.
    Would recommend that you look at one with a hard top for the winter, and be sure it has the roll down windows not the sliding type.
    Very good as a driveway and clean up truck with the tight turning radius.
    You would be surprise you how much snow you can move with a Jeep.
    I normally would outfit it with a 6.6 standard Western Unimount, and of course a set of Timbren Load Boosters.
    :rolleyes: John.........

    Western recomends the 6.6' USX or 7.2' LSX blade and also recommends using the Mopar air shock kit #82202562.

    Meyer we run a 97 TJ its been a good little vech like snowjay said install the factory front air shocks thats all we use and run the western 6.5 standard we have a 4.0l auto the stick may wear you out on a long plow shift , the jeep does have limitations i will tell you this up front we use it for resi work and some small lots tight turning is unbeatable however in heavy snow on big jobs she really sruggles it works good if i put it with one of the big trucks has a clean up vech would suggest also running some sand bags or weight in behind the rear seat we take the rear seat out of ours and place ballest over the rear axle seems to work better.
    Overall after three years i have had it i really have no complaints
