Should I buy a new plow?

    As I alluded to in my previous post, I sold my S-10 Blazer, and have the 7'6" MT Snoway sitting in my garage. Its only two years old and has about 20 driveways on it. Still brand new.

    I bought a new Jeep Wrangler and the local dealer wants $600 for a new mount. Even with that, I think the weight of the MT is going to be a bit much on the front end of the Wrangler (even with the air bags I was going to install) - and $600 more on this plow is a bit much to swallow. Plus, someone suggested putting on a poly scraper bar to lighten it up - which is fine - but how much more is that?

    So, the debate is, should I try to sell/trade in the MT on a new (very light) 22 series? I only do 40-50 foot driveways with the thing, and there are about 4-5 I do each snowfall.

    What can I expect to pay for a new 22 series, with DP, remote, and installation?

    What can I sell a like-new MT for?

    you will take a huge hit on the MT. Used straight blades seem to top out at around $1,500, unless the buyer has the same truck the plow came off of then you might get $2,000. The $800 you're out of pocket for the parts (mount and Poly wear edge) is less then you will need to upgrade to the new 22 series.
