    I'm looking for a plow to put on my 1973 Jeep J4000. Does anyone here know what would be a good set up? I'm hoping to find something a little more economical. I'm not doing this for hire, just my own acreage.

    When I first got into plowing snow I plowed for a guy that had a fleet of those little oxen! They were nimble by tough.

    We had the old Meyer twin sticks on all the trucks.

    I don't know that you will find anyone that makes a direct fit for something that old, but maybe. :confused: I am guessing it will be a custom build and install.

    That's when a truck was a truck. But your going to have to make something fit, sorry.

    That sounds like a nice toy to me.

    If you find out the modifications are to much money would you be interested in selling? What is your location?

    Too much time on your hands Fred? That would be a fun project to restore. On another note, I do not see why they don't put there location on. On some of the tech support it would help.

    Awesome advertisement for the biz. I haven't had a toy in a while now. Itching a little for a old plow horse. I was high bidder on a 63 Power wagon, Some sniper came in so fast I didn't even have time to increase my bid. Some of them guys on ebay are slick bidders.

    Go on the full size Jeep forums and post a wanted ad. People on the forums seem to frequently buy older trucks with plows that they don't want and will sell them at a good deal.
