Plows
 
Hey everyone north country TJ owner, was wondering if anyone has any cheap ideas on fitting a plow to the wrangler. I want this plow strictly for plowing my fraternity house driveway, so definitely emphasis on CHEAP. Not really looking for intense mounting hardware either a quick pop on pop off system would be perfect. All ideas welcome :thumb:

Hope ya don't mind a lower resale value. The second you bolt it up it goes down. 1/4 frame isn't designed to have that kind of stress on it. It can be done, but just a heads up. You telling people you just did your frat's driveway probably sounds the same as the little old lady who only used her car to get groceries.

haha its the unfortunate time period before pledging has begun... we got dumped on. And yes carolina thats exactly what im going for. Little old lady that uses the plow just for the driveway at my house thats why cheap is the key word and i dont want a huge frame killing plow i was just wondering if anyones done anything with say an atv plow makeshift mount or if there is a small plow idk just spitballin ideas

You jeep can handle a plow without a problem. It's the same as off tossing, if you abuse it it will hurt things, if you don't then it won't. I plowed for a bunch of years and my tj is fine. If your lookin for easy mounting I would search snow-a-way. They mount in a 2" reciever and have no power up or down but seem to work pretty well for what you have in mind.

Drag a pallet behind your Jeep at an angle, with weight on top of it. We plowed our 1/2 mile long driveway every winter growing up in Michigan that way. You adjust the rope length on each side of the pallet to adjust the angle of the plow.

Hey guys, heres the cat's meow! Google ( snowsport HD Utility Snow Plow) or realtruck.com and check out the utopia! I have a 98 TJ with a 2.5 - 4 Cyl. Auto and recently bought this plow for it. It is SO COOL! The plow blade is around $1300 with free shipping and you need a CURT front mount 2" receiver hitch to be mounted in the front. ($239.00) This particular CURT hitch is frame mounted as opposed to the one RealTruck offers which is a top, bumper mount hitch which I did not like. This plow needs NO HYDRAULICS and is easily manually operated by one person since the blade is ALUMINUM. I have only used my plow only once since we have an (Al Gore - global warming -snow drought) but I did my driveway in 15 minutes, wearing a T-shirt, with the heater on, a cold beer sitting in the drink holder as opposed to me freezing my azz off walking the HD walking snow blower that I now have up for sale that took an hour. You can choose a 6 or 7 foot wide blade. I chose a 6 because of the 4 Cyl. but if you have a 6 cyl. you could do a 7. It's a no brainer..... and now FUN....!!! If you need part numbers or any questions, please send me a message!

I second the Snow Sport. I have had mine for a few years now and have used it on several vehicles. Even used it on the rear hitch of my Ranger with no problems. Love it!

That is what a spring pledge class is for. Also make sure to make them wear Velcro strap shoes because pledges can't tie shoes.
