    Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that you cannot put a plow on a grand cherokee because if has a unibody with no real frame on it. Again I can be wrong....

    If you're interested, there are plows that attach to the front bumper. Usually they don't have hydraulic left/right or up. There are also some that attach to the back of the car. I forget the name of them right now, but you might try searching the Internet for "snowplow" to see if you can find the name then search this site using that brand. If you can't find them, let me know and I'll try to look it up for you.

    They "perils" of the unibody, and Jeep Grand Cherokee in particular, have been discussed here many times. One of the all time great threads was started by a guy who wanted to know how to put a plow on one. One of his lines was - "Don't tell me it can't be done, just tell me how to do it.".
