    I have a 1997 TJ that I am thinking about putting a plow on. This would be be personal use and clearing a 1/2 mile private road. In my area you will see many used plows for sale. All of the ads state the plow was remove from a specific truck. Is it possible to pick up one of these used plows and get the correct mounting system for my Jeep. I know I will need a plow that is 6.5 or 7 feet wide. If this is incorrect please let me know.

    Are there any plows I should stay away from. And what should I look for in a used plow?

    I did spend some time reading through many of the questions and it appears as if my Jeep will be up to the task.

    Yes - Contact a dealer for the type of plow you get for a mount.

    Basically, that's personal preference. You could search for comments regarding the various brands of plows.

    Leaks, frayed/split hoses, worn pins/holes and general condition (rust, etc).

    I also use a 97 TJ for plowing. I have a western 6'6". You will need to put air shocks or timbrens on the front end to assist in the weight. I installed everything myself so if you have any questions please feel free to ask. The TJ works good with the 6'6" plow but I would hate to see how much more weight the 7' puts on it. Good luck
