    New here and I've never plowed before. I'm thinking of getting an old cj. Is this a good plow for this vehicle? Any info or other suggestions are appreciated. Plowing my own driveway and maybe a few others.

    That set up says it is for a Chevy. You will need a plow and mounting specific to your vehicle. Jeeps are great for plowing in my opinion. I have 2.

    If it's going to be a driver be prepared to spend a boat load on rust repair.

    Plow Recommendations??

    OK, I purchased a '79 CJ-7 today.

    It seems in good shape and has a 304 in it but now I need to find a plow. I'd rather not spend a lot of $ as it's for my relatively short driveway (and maybe just a few others).

    I've seen conflicting comments on snowbears and snowsports (as these seem to be the ones in the lower price range barring a deal on a used one). I'd be interested in any comments/recommendations as to what to get but I need to keep the cost ~1k if I can.

    Thanks in advance for the comments!

    Before you spend ANY money on a plow make sure the frame is solid around both the front and rear spring shackles. That is where the leaf springs attach to the frame. I have seen too many Jeeps with alot of rot in these areas.
