Plow
29K Original Miles

I have already sent him a message....waiting to hear back. Just hoping its solid and details if the plow setup works and what it needs for brake work. Just not sure if I need a 6th vehicle but then again its a jeep and less expensive than a quad.

There's an old CJ here in town that's been sitting in this guy's front yard up for sale for the last 3 or 4 years or more. I drive past it regularly. I'm tempted to stop and have a look... if nothing else other than to see the asking price and condition. The paper on the window can't be read without actually stopping and getting up close.

Heading there to look at it tomorrow. He said that it blew a brake line so he replaced it and the Master cyl. then it blew the brake line on the other side so he just crimped it off. So we will see what it looks like.
