Plowing the white stuff

Hi guys,


I haven't been on much do to family sickness and my own illness but I haven't left this world or this forum yet.


I want to get a snowplow for my Cherokee (1974) and am finding plow set ups but I will need a mounting bracket for the vehicle and have had zero luck finding one. Anyone know where one can be bought or will I have to make one?

Maybe someone on here has one they want to part with???


I have a lot of experience plowing but never bought one and don't know the finer details.



It looks like each brand uses a different type mount so that makes it a little harder.



The ones that mount in a receiver hitch look like they would be more flimsy maybe and have less support than a mount & blade that has a couple mounting points.



Help an ignorant guy out here please


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking...

That is specifically for the DK2 plow and the blade I picked up today is a Meyer brand and it mounts differently.


I guess there isn't any members on here with plows........or they just don't wanna talk at me...lol


I have 4-5 outta state salvage yards that deal with just jeeps so I will call around tomorrow and see what I can find.


Looking more & more like I will have to fabricate one.


I would ask if 1/4" plate is thick enough to use on the mount of should I go to 3/8" but it seems that nobody on here has plows so they probably wouldn't know.


Going to check a truck around town somewhere and see what their mount is like for thickness.....

I have a 74 Cherokee with a Meyer plow on it . The nt Cherokee makes a great plow. You can get the mount from storks.

Oops

I just learned I have been using the wrong terminology,


According to the Meyers page the part I was looking for is a "Carton".


The part that attaches the snow plow "mount" to the vehicle.


Believe it or not that's NOT my first mistake in the last 55 years.

My '67 has a Meyer plow. I could get some pics and measurements if that would help.

I actually found one, everything except the blade for $420 shipped which seems like a great price since storks wanted $400 for just the one piece Which is the wrong one for my plow)


All the way on the east coast and evidently they got buried in snow so waiting for the pictures to verify it's the correct one before buying.
