Does anybody know of a snowplow attachment that WILL fit the new PW's?

Don't think you can cause of the Winch. I believe you would have to remove the Winch and your front springs aren't built to handle a extra 800lbs or so. Just my thoughts

I am planning on getting a better bumper for this truck, hopefully I can figure it out. I can make some serious cash with my PW plowing driveways and pulling cars out after snowstorms. (And the ensuing muddy mess.)

I'd read your manual first. I think there was something in there that said snowplows were not to be used with the PW. One reason was the more flexable, lighter duty springs, but there was something else, too. It's been quite some time since I read it, but I seem to remember something about voiding your warranty if you attach/use a plow.

I thought you already knew that. cul8r is correct, it specifically states in the PW manual not to put a snow plow on it. I thought you were going to go ahead and do it anyway. <grin>

The snow plow restriction is due to the front springs. If you're going to run a heavy duty steel plow (like a fisher) you'll need to replace the front springs... Maybe with 2500 Hemi snow plow prep springs, and a spacer to get the height right.

Yeah, everything is a tradeoff.

But with lockers you can lose some articulation and it's not that big of a deal.

As soon as I move to Edgewood I will be getting a snowplow regardless of all this "important stuff". There is a mint to be made there after snowstorms. I haven't built my house yet so there is still plent of time. :0

A couple of manufacturers make a lightweight blade. Those shouldnt hamper the PW much.

If you use Meyer's (http://www.meyerproducts.com/) online seleciton tool, they have a plow listing for the 2005-06 Power Wagon. I just received a quote from a local dealer for the 7.5' ST EZ mount plow system with E58H power unit, saber headlights and all required hardware. $3585 +tax, uninstalled. Even though it is not recommended, they do make one for it.

I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that you have to remove the hidden winch.

Packraftnm,


The manual does state that its not reccomeneded, but it also says slide in campers arent recommended- and some on here have done it. Just as has been stated lose the winch and it should mount up, you may or may not want to change springs. I have talked to a couple of guys that are plowing with PW's and have begged them for pictures none yet. I do remember seeing one on autotrader for a long time it had a 8'6" fisher V-blade on it and it sagged something fierce. However I would venture to guess you may be ok with a 7'6" straight blade or maybe even a 8' footer. I myself have a mount sitting in my garage as a back-up plan if I ever need to "justify" the truck lol.

Best of luck,


Ryan

Ya, you're not supposed to winch your truck up a steep snowy roadless hill with a 4000 pound chipper attached to the truck either, but I still do it. I will be in the market for a lightweight snowplow in about a year. i can make some serious coin in the area I'm movin too.
