Moods quality is the past 10-15 years has gone down the toilet.

I replaced my ball joints with napa ones. That have almost 100k on them so far even with my heavy plow

I have a warn snow plow that I usually install every summer. It light weight and easy to remove and install. Problem is the tag price, and parts and maintenance is a bit expensive.

Napa sells extra weight coils for the TTB that supported a 6.5 fisher on my 91 with no issues.

Default Anyone have a snow plow on their Ranger?

I see this thread was started back on 9/8/13 & the last post was on 7/22/17.
But I will post my info for future readers.

First off, the worst thing you can do to any truck is install a plow.

2000 Ranger off road 3.0l, was originally a automatic but the addition of the plow on the 140000 mile trans took care of that! It now has a 5 speed, it came factory with 4:10 gears then I installed a limited slip in the rear and doubled the leaf springs, cranked up the torsion bars and installed Timbrens on the front and rear.
Iím running a Meyer 7í with a E47 pump on the front, this year I installed a 7í rear plow. I use 4 low when plowing as it makes up for the lack of power of the 3.0.
This thing has plowed a mountain of snow and although Iím still currently using it as a daily driver & plow truck it has payed the price for it with a early grave.
