Check out 4wheel drive hardware. They have it in the catalog I just got in the mail. They have it for $1075 straight blade and $1255 for angled blade.

do you actually weigh enough in a cj/yj/tj/xj to plow with any effectiveness?

It moves by you getting out of and lowering/raising it, no way to angle it. Me I'm lazy and prefer electric over hydraulic so I sit my happy *** in the cab in the heat and move the control for up/down and power angle.

They are great to plow with good power/traction combined with a great turning radius compared to a pickup. Plowing is dependent less of an overall weight but has more to do with correct weight distribution and good tires. For example, I can have a Ford F-550 with an 11' plow, but if there is no ballast and it has highway tread tires you might as well have a shovel.

Sure, I've been plowing with John Deere lawn tractor for decades. I started out with a 12 h.p., with nothing but chains and wheel weights. Even it did a good job.

Nowadays, lots of guys do some serious plowing with a 4 wheeler. A Jeep can be an excellent vehicle with the right plow and some common sense using it.
