    I've never owned a vehicle with a plow before and just finished fixing a CJ-7 with a small Meyers plow.

    It does not have the plow shoes and I am going to get a set, will any set work or do they have to be Meyers? It looks like they fit in a triangular mount that could accept other types?
    Also, one of the rams is leaking. Is it worth repairing it or just better to get a new one?

    I only plan to use it for a long driveway, nothing commercial.

    Thanks in advance.

    If the chrome on the ram is not pitted, it can be rebuilt. Just buff off any surface rust and replace the gaskets.

    As for as shoes, it tends to be personal preference. I only use them on gravel lots.
