    I am looking to put a plow on my wrangler, but trying not to spend alot of money. I can't seem to find a used plow. I found this different type of a plow. Snowsport personal plow. It is about $1200 new. It hooks up to a frond-end hitch . There is no turning control or rasing controls, it just goes along the ground. Here is the site for it they have a short video on it.

    Do you think this is a waste of money or it is OK.
    Thanx

    I agree, don't get that snowsport. Watch you local paper / swap sheet, and watch eBay. I ended up finding a good deal on a 1.5 year old Meyer 6.5' poly plow for my Cherokee. I ended up getting it for $800, and just had to buy a mount for my truck, which was about $300.

    Here is a Meyer 6.5' poly plow on eBay right now. It's even in NJ.

    Sure, you will have to get a Wrangler mount and a new upright that will take lights, but its a full angle plow.

    Heres a control mechanism, also in NJ:

    Here's another:

    Here's a complete 6.5' Western:

    (Granted its in Salt Lake City.)

    Or if you do decide to go with the Snowsport, here is one on eBay for 1/2 price.

    Just check every couple of days, good things always pop up on there. You will be looking for either a 6'6" to 7'2". Some people even fit a 7'6" on a Wrangler. I don't know if that is the best thing to do, but to each his / her own.

    My dad's deal with the guy did not go through. So we are still selling are western uni mount 6'6 . $1500.. What year is your wrangler. This plow was barely used on a 93.. The dealer told me that if you were to put a western 6'6 on a jeep that is newer, like a 97 you need a different plow. You could probably put any small plow on a wrangler as long as you have leaf springs

    penberth, thanx for all the links. I might need to get one of those controls. My friend actually found an old Meyer 6.5, for me. So I will going with that. It was used on YJ and I have a TJ , so some things will need to be changed. Hopefully it will be reasonable $.
    So I will be plowing next time there is snow, can't wait.

    I watched the video. I think it would be fine for a guy that wants to do his own property. It doesn't back drag so it would be useless for a guy like me that does two car residentials.
