    I am using a Meyers 6' power angle on a 93 Wrangler 4.0 and works fine. Good for driveways and small parking lots but not for heavy lot or commerical work. If the Wrangler is a 4 cyl don't waste you time...

    That is so wrong. You wanna 4.0, good for you. But folks have been plowing with 4 cyl Jeeps for sixty years, and doing quite nicely. I suggest that any problems plowing with a 4 - banger Wrangler are the result of the operator, not the motor.

    check out Snoway.com. The down pressure makes these smaller plows work like much larger, heavier ones...... Great plows.....

    I am curious what you based your claim on?? It sounds very typical of someone who has no direct experience.

    I, on the other hand, have been using them for 4 years, and have extensive time behind them to actually know how they perform.....

    I paid $4000 for my first plow.......I would say that is about average....I will continue to use Snoway, mainly because of the productivity the DP provides......

  18. Snow-way

    I love my snow-way its a few years old and it has a steel blade......It's worth looking into...i think there is a few of us jeepers that have'em...dont recall any complaints.

    First, you guys are replying to a post from a year ago....not
    sure if you were aware of that.

    Secondly, the owners manual that came with my TJ
    says that they do not recommend snowplowing with
    a 4 cylinder wrangler UNLESS it's a manual transmission.
    That's probably where the poster got his ideas from.
