Anyone else plowing with their Gladiator's?

Just wondering if anyone else is was plowing snow with their Gladiators tonight. I just finished my driveway and opened up the gas company's driveway across the street with my 63.

Came new with a Meyers plow, and it's been pushing snow since.

My Gladiator is finally drivable and I hauled half a ton of wood pellets with it this weekend, but I don't have any snow or a plow for it

I plow snow with my '86 J10. It was purchased new specifically as a plow truck with the dealer installed Meyer plow. The controls even have the AMC logo on them. It still only has 65K miles but the 258 I6 is getting tired from the abuse.

Plowing with my '79 J20. I put an 8 foot Fisher on it a couple of years ago that came off of an '86 F250.

Have had three snowstorms here in NJ so far but have been lacking on the picture posting time. Did get my heat fixed as mentioned above though.. it was just the common heater box 3/4 full of leaves and acorns issue..and the blend door stuck as a result of it.

This is the '74 J-20 wrecker with 47K original miles, 360, TH400, QT + low range, and alot of rust. There's not much of a driver floor left and the cab corners are bondo'd but wow does this thing push snow well. Eventually Ill be putting the bed and low mileage interior of this one together with the '75 wrecker that I got out of Oregon that has not much rust at all but has alot more use and miles. For now, I just push snow with it, so ignore the painted name on the doors, I only use this on private property..

Wow, what a nice looking Wrecker! Was it set up that way originally? It sure looks correct.

addicted - Nice pics! Amazing to see a J-truck still working like that here in Michigan. I LOVE the single plow light on the back!

This is an old pic of my J3000 flatbed.


It's still not done with it's resurrection, but it will be used to plow with once it's done.

For now I'm plowing with my CJ-5:

Yes as far as I know it was, and it looks like the pictures in the brochures of its day. The '75 has the exact same setup too except the tailights sit in metal protective recesses whereas these are flush mount. The plow I think was added sometime later, as they haphazardly used a cutting torch to cut away portions of the pusher bumper away to clear the plow frame.
