    Did anyone ever make a plow to fit a plow to fit a Grand Cherokee? I don't know if Sno-Way made a unit or maybe a Meyer 2-Meter. Got a basically free truck in decent shape that needs some minor repairs that I could make into a light duty driveway machine.:help:

    Grand Cherokee is a '95, inline 6. Basically just needs a new r. axle to be servicable.

    Grand Cherokee Plow

    I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee with 4.0 six. Put a Snowbear plow on it and it works great. It's a lighter weight plow compared to Western or similar personal plow (Western doesn't make a plow to fit the GC since it doesn't have a frame).

    You have to manually angle the Snowbear, but for personal use it is a plowing machine and I am surprised at how sturdy it feels. I was concerned about the uniframe construction of the Jeep, but the mounts that are custom fit for the GC are very rigid and solid. I've had full size plow trucks and I prefer the Jeep because it is easier to manuever.

    Been hanging Meyer two meter and Blizzard 680/720's on them for years. The new Meyer Drive pro fits them well also.

    I'm looking to mount a smaller 6.5" western to my 96 grand cherokee. I need a mount or a way to mount it on the truck side. I have been advised against it but I have no other use for this thing. (Crazy to think people spent big bucks for this new) Anyway, it's a 5.2 V8 and stronger motor and tranny then any 4L. If anyone can that would be great. thx

    I would say your best bet would be to trade it for a YJ or an older TJ.

    I say head out and find a plow first that you'd like to purchase or would work, 6.5 or 7 foot (craigslist). They can be had for fairly cheap money and almost always sold for the same amount you pay for them if you decide not to. Then do a search online/ebay for other GC mounts that are used with different companies. Save these photos and then take them to a custom welder and show him what you want. I just paid $300 for a custom mount for my meyer on my tj and bought the plow with wire harness for $400. Works unbelievable for $700 bucks! Just a thought...

    I have a 95 Grand Cherokee V8 and I put a Suburban on it and it worked just fine. I have 1500 ft laneway, and live in Canada. This year I cleared drifts of over 3ft with it. I would not use it perfessionally though. Weighs about 300-400lbs and is 84 inchs. I bought the blade used for $1200.
