Default Snow Plowing

I know, I know... It's still a little too early to be talking about snow. But I was thinking of purchasing a JEEP Cherokee (XJ) for winter time as my commuter for bad weather and to make a little side cash plowing some driveways. I might be in luck with getting one cheap and if so, I will be adding a plow to it.


The only thing is, I don't understand how the plow and mount work...


I can't find any specific plow mounts that mount to the XJ... I want a simple basic mount with the light bar that extends up. I also want the mount to be able to stay onto the vehicle, but I want to be able to remove the plow. Kind of like a quick disconnect. Do certain plows work with certain mounts? How does this **** all work?


I want it to look like this. Why is this so confusing to me?

in case you did not know the XJ is a uni-body suv,, i doubt you'll find a plow for it. unless you want to fab something up.

A lot of guys use 4 wheelers with plows on them. Friend of mine does my sidewalk/driveway for me whenever it snows with one. I have a lot of sidewalk living on a corner lot.

Thanks guys. Seems like I will have to buy one from another truck and have a mount fabbed up. I know its a unibody vehicle, but plenty of people plow with these cherokees

I've seen 6.5 foot plows on XJs before, as well as exploders and blazers as well, pretty sure fisher has a mount for one which is the best plow money can buy, but by law if it is newer then a 96 you have to be able to pull the head gear off the truck when not plowing, not just the blade

Don't forget your commercial registration and 750k liability insurance minimum
