Well I am pretty lazy and for the 1st time in my life I own my own driveway that will need snow removal. I dont want to shovel or buy a blower. Nor do I want to spend a couple thousand on a real plow setup. My driveway really isnt that big so I was thinking on putting together a tiny custom plow setup for <$500. Here is the idea and any feedback is welcome.
Step #1 Buy a bumper like this but with a 2" receiver hitch
Step #2 Pick up a used ATV 60"-66" ish plow like this.
Step #3 Mount the cheap 1500lb atv winch I picked up for $15 to the top of the bumper and run a remote to cab.
Step #4 Fab up a custom bracket to the plow that would have a 3 angle pivot point secured with a hitch pin that locks so that I can angle the plow either straight or 45 degrees either way (ofc I would have to adjust it manually while outside the jeep), and a box/pin pivot point a bit after the portion that attaches to the hitch so it can go up and down.
How does this sound? I could just attach the plow to the hitch when I expect a storm ...otherwise I wouldnt really be doing much driving with it on. If I do I would attach a chain to the plow head to a d-ring on the bumper so that all the weight isnt on the winch and cable.
