    I'm wondering if my '84 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a good vehicle to use with a plow? I'm a rookie and need a set up to plow my driveway and 100 x 100 ft. parking area. If so, What size and/or model would you guys recommend. If my Wagoneer isn't doable, what vehicle/plow would you consider a cost effective alternative. Thanks for any advice!

    If I remember correctly, in '84 the Grand Wagoneer was the same frame and running gear as a J 10 pick-up, usually with a 360 cid V-8. Meyer makes a 7 1/2' that will be fine for that truck. Jeep made great trucks back then, unfortunately the bodies would rust through long before the chassis and motor were tired. Good luck.

    those jeeps are EXCELLENT to plow with, a 7' plow will handle anything you need it to, niec turning radius, nice frame and goes thru snow with no problems at all, much better then a pick up. Just make sure the springs are up to the task if they are original.

    I would call your local dealer and see what is made that can still fit the truck, that might be the determining factor in your plow choice, go with whatever they sell that is local and easy for you to get service and parts for

    I plowed commercially for 9 years with a 2 door version of your truck, it never let me down and mechanically it was very cheap to maintain

    One of the best plow vehicles I have ever owned , still have them but they sit because 1 broke the frame from rust and the other needs brake lines . need parts ? call me i have the complete bolt on frame for one , no blade or pump .
