Re: Lifts and plows...do they mix?
Another thing to consider...I'm not sure how sturdy the 5" lift springs are...Your lift cylinder for the plow probably only travels 5"...Ok, you've got the extra vertical movement that the arm attached to the lift ram affords, but when you pick up the plow with a standard suspension, the front of the jeep compresses, and lowers...the jeep will squat a few inches before it will lift the plow--and that's with standard springs that don't have very much travel. When you add 5" lift springs that have a great deal more room to move, and are probably more flexible...you have the potential to not be able to pick up the plow, because the front of the jeep will just squat instead of raising the plow. I've got a friend who put an 8' plow on a lifted F-150, and we got all the angles right and such, the problem was that the springs would just compress instead of picking up the plow--follow me? He was able to add those little airbags that go inside the coil springs to remedy his problem. Which worked great until he got in some heavy wet snow that stuck to the plow, and then he had to increase the pressure in the bags...until one blew. Of course, your plow is much smaller and lighter...but the suspension movement is something to consider.
