not. Body and frame aren't gonna be that straight if it's got a snow plow on it. Or engine and tranny that good. Or axles.

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

Yes, plow trucks are hammered by plowing. It may be ok if it was used once or twice a year to plow the owner's driveway - but plow trucks that go out on the street and are really used take a lot of punishment.

Plus it's wildly expensive if it's not in perfect condition. These trucks don't sell for that kind of money. Wagoneers - yes, if they are beautiful. But not J-trucks.
