    i have a older snowbear plaw on my jeep, and the scaraper was already old but since we had about 6 inch snow i plowed 12 driveways and i noticed that the scraper is worn out completly on both sides. Does anyonw know if you can just get a pice of metal from a hardware store or do you have to get one from snowbear. I dont want to spend the $80 on a snowbear one, i would like one thats a littler more beefer then the one they sell.

    guess you could do what you want...if the SB one is $80 that is a bargain..otherwise you need to get a heavy piece of steel and drill a lot of holes in it to mount it.

    I am sure a local metalworking shop could hook you up and fabricate one.

    When the time comes, I may look into the same..or just get it from SB and be done with it.

    easiest thing would be to have someone cut them off with an acetolyne torch (not an option on plastic blades). Other than that, you can always drill the heads off.

    I also just noticed that the plow and the scraper are both bent. If i get a new scraper it wont sit flush with the plow.
