Default Cherokee Plow

Hi, I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if this is a good place to post but anyways here goes...

I have a 2000 Cherokee Limited with a 7.5' Sno Way ST series poly plow with down pressure and I love it. These Little jeeps are quick and easy to maneuver. I have been running this set up on my XJ for a few years now and have had Great Success!!! The plow has actually been the one to take the beating, not the JP. If you plow smart and don't put too heavy of a plow on the vehicle these things work great. I lifted mine a few inches to fit bigger tires and then added about 400-500 lbs of ballast and it Really hooks up nice when pushing snow. I am actually thinking about getting a 6-6.5 foot sno way blade (I like the Down Pressure for back dragging) and putting plow wings on it for increased snow carrying capabilities. I wrote a little more in depth review of the plow here if interested http://mysnowplowreview.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9

Default xj plow mount for a 91 cherokee

I have a 91 cherokee with a snow way plow. what did you change on the front stabilizer bar to make it work. I had to remove mine to get the plow frame to fit. I have a ST22 plow.

My mount didn't require I removed anything. I had enough clearance to install the mount with no issues..

How does your jeep handle now with the stabilizer bar off, does it sway?

I have a 99 xj with a 6'6" western plow and the Cherokee handles it like a champ. I put a 3" Rust'ys lift in it and opted for the 180# vs the 150# front springs. It came off a 96 s-10 Jimmy so I had to make the push frame from scratch, Blade and pump unit comes off in 2 minutes and push frame unbolts for the summer. Was able to leave everything stock except a little plastic trimming on front bumper. Will send pics as soon as camera thaws out.

Default 91 with a snow way

HAD to put the sqway bar back on. Drive Horrible. Picked up longer sway bar links seamd to handle better. I utilized an older frame from a western plow, and welded the front mounts of a snow way fram on the lower part of the frame. It could be a little high as I dont get a lot of down pressure.

Can anyone tell me how low the A-Frame on the Sno Way plow should be. Should it be parallel to the ground.

Thanks
Stu

Hey Rex Can you tell me exactly what you have setup on your rig for plowing snow. I like the look of your setup and it looks like it would be tough as hell also.

I see the meyer pump, so I assume you have a meyer plow? What did you have to get to setup mounting, and which meyer plow did are you using.

Thanks
Titus

I had a plow on my cherokee for over 10 years...It was bough new in 99, and shortly after a plow was put on it, it did just fine, the front end is fine, springs and all that are fine, however I am selling my plow mount because I decided to go a different route with my xj and want a different bumper other than stock. It is a really simple install it took me about 20-30 minutes to remove the whole mount. If anyone here is interested in it PM me, I am in northwest Indiana.
It is a western universal, im looking to get best offer or trade on it, its just taking up space and am looking for funds/parts to build my xj.

Just mounted 6.5 Western SU, front squats 1.5"-2"
Complete unit weighs 425, going to add air shocks
as 235/75/15 tires are close on stock suspension.
Factory plow mounts are available, only Meyer currently,
but western made them also. Maybe others.

I plow commercially. Use a 3/4 ton for the non-tractor stuff. I personally wouldn't put a plow on an XJ at least wouldn't get more than a small light one for personal use. Plowing beats the hell out of rigs.

The XJ's make fantastic driveway rigs. I've got a 7' on my 93. For parking lots, spreading salt etc... I've got a V10 Excursion and a 7.3 TD F-350.

Sure, driveways and such are fine, I just don't want some poor guy thinking he can put a blade on his jeep and run commercial lots as it will fall apart. The front end and trans wouldn't last long. By commercial plowing I mean big area, lots of snow, and big plows.

Fords < Duramax

^kidding, but really

Yeah, I'm not a Ford fan but backed into two of them as plow rigs somehow.

The excursion is hands down the best plow rig I've ever operated. It's an absolute tank...
