Snow Plow on a Jeep Commando

    I have a 1968 Jeep Commando that I would like to put a plow on for my driveway (not for commercial use). I found one that is mounted to a rolling chassis but it mounts to the both the front and back leaf spring shackles on each side. I have never seen this type of mount and I was wondering if this is the best way or should I look for an alternative. I do have pictures of the rolling chassis and plow set up that I can post. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you might have.

    Post pics, we could probably tell you what brand of plow it is then and if there is a better way to mount something on it.

    I supported mine with angle braces back from the plow mount to the frame.

    plow pics

    I do not know the brand of plow but here are the pics. It also has a hydrolic pump that bolts to the motor and is ran by the fan belt. Its hard to tell from the pictures, but you can see there is a rod that runs to the under carrage and attaches to the leaf spring shackle bolts
    Thanks for your help everyone.
