Did you have to change the front springs to handle the added weight?

I don't think I've seen a plow on a JT that was not an ATV plow with a 10 MPH max transport rating. This looks like a nice unit.

What’s the setup
No, the front end hardly moved at all. I still plan on a leveling kit though.
What does that setup weigh?
4 way plow?
Trip springs?
Commercial use?
With the angle of the blade on the bottom, you need to know your surface your clearing. Any solid object and your going to get a solid jolt.
Without a snow shield on top of the blade your going to fill the grill and windshield.
I drive a plow for a living.
Just saying.

It is a Snowex LT7200 (personal use)
4 way hydraulic
Yes it has trip springs
It weighs 300 lbs
Did you do the install yourself or have a dealer do it? (I see 3 within an hour drive of me)

All in cost? I know it's dependent on the options, but it looks like you got the kitchen sink too.

I don't know that I can do it with the front bumper I have. I believe the built in skid plate is too low. But what the hell it's only money. :LOL:

Not terrible when you hit a solid object. Snow shields are available as well as skid shoes

but

dealer installed it. Snowex makes a mounting bracket for gladiator. I payed $3800 for it 3 years ago. It was originally on a Silverado 1500.

Nice.
If it were myself, I would upgrade the front springs.
300 lbs is a lot and it’s forward of the bumper too so with center of gravity pushed forward maybe more of an impact?

Might want to add some weight in the box too, to keep the back wheels on the ground.😉
