    Are you serious ? Just don't use the down pressure with front weel drive. I have seen at least one plow on an old Subaru but I think they made the mount. Good luck keep us posted.

    DUDE!, throw the rabbit in the trash (better yet, take it to the junk yard, get your $10.00 and buy a friggin shovel at wal-mart for $5.00 and another cheap bottle of wine that you have obviously been consuming!:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    ha ha well i can see how a rabbit with a plow would be intimidating! something that got 50mpg and small enough to do driveways, sidewalks, bike paths, etc. for penny's on the dollar! in thier stock form they were actually good in the snow! so if you add 80% diff kit, studed snow tires, and a plow one could make a nice profit? snowway made them in the late 70's early 80's i'm hoping a person that worked there with them here in wisconsin in that time can give me some details on it or even an actuall plow kit diagram or even locate a plow? snowway has been bought out a few times since! if i find one it's just gonna be used for historical purposes!

    The Snoway master catalog has pictures. You might get some info form the factory or there a guy on here that has one on a VW pickup truck. Same front end as the rabbit.

    basher,
    do you know how i can get those pics or at least see them from the master catalog
    or even who to talk to at the factory by chance? also that would be great to find someone that all ready has one! you know who he is? and yes your correct rabbit and pickup are the same
    front ends! i do have both vehicles in my collection the diesel version has been great to have with all the high fuel prices! it gets 50mpg!
    thanks for the help!
