Snow Plow

Any one out there using there xj with a snow plow?? My blowers given me enough trouble this year so far that Im possitive it wont be in my yard next winter. Thinking about a new plow for the xj instead of a new blower throwing it out there to see what make model people are using. Merry Christmas!!

I see a white xj on my daily commute that has a plow hooked up to it. I'll have to chat up the owner if I see him. I'd be very interested to know how this set up performs.

There are around here somewhere, do a search for it. Full-size or -weight truck plows are not a great idea, nor is commercial service. I've seen a lot of fiberglass plows on XJs and the type that mount to a front hitch. HD coils up front are a given lol

I tried that once one my 92 XJ, second time out plowing the blade snagged something and the uni-frame bent in to a taco. There is a reason most plows are trucks with a full frame.

I tried out a Snowbear 82" with power (winch) lift/manual angle and a Meyer Drive Pro 82" with power (hydraulic) lift/angle, both mounted in a 2" front receiver. My jeep handled it with zero problems and minor front suspension sag when lifting the Meyer. I'd live to have a Meyer setup, but can't see spending $$$ for a plow I'll only use 2-3 times a winter.

I'm plowing with mine. I custom made a lower mount. Its a 7.5 foot older western. Works like a charm.

Cool - unimount? I found that the 7'6" western was about the most my wj could handle in deep snow - always wanted to build box ends for the plow but after 4 years I sold it and lifted the wj


My setup:
2"bb
Front and rear air shocks
Custom push plate
265/75/16 tires
800# rear ballast
