I have a 1986 K10 Chevy with a 7.5' western on the front that I paid like $600 for many years ago. Sure its rusty and beat up but it plows tons of snow every winter (22.6 FEET total last winter), and I don't feel bad about going forward to reverse 10,000 times a day, or accidentally backing into a snow bank, or getting it stuck, or when a giant frozen ice/snow block slides down whats left of the rocker panels, etc. Just my 2 cents but I would never put a plow on a vehicle that I wanted to keep in good condition.
This guy has the right idea in my opinion.
I plow with this fine unit. Bought the Jeep for 500 bucks, built the plow from my junk pile. 4 cyl. 4 spd. sips gas and in low range has plenty of power to move a lot of snow.
