Default Snow Plow For A Discovery ?

Hi, I am new to the forum and new to owning a Land Rover. I now own a 1995 discovery and was wondering if anyone knows of any company that makes a snow plow that fits a Discovery.
Thank you very much for your help.

not sure never saw it done. Check Google. But more then likely you will have to ask a local plow installer.

Then you may end up taking off the bumper. Downside is all those bolts will need to be welded out and it wont come out easy.

You would also need an extra Transmission cooler or a larger one at that. NOt to mention the kit for the extra pump.

I saw a couple of picture of Disco's with plows last year, I think they were on the Disco Web.

It's called the front end. I used mine as a snow plow in Reno last New Years. Up to 4 feet of fresh snow. Drove like a dream. Didn't get stuck until I tried to turn around! LOL!

Would Disco II be able to get a plow on it ?

Cause the New Dacotas , you can't put them on cause the crumple zone is in the truck now , so It will get bent up etc...

Just remove the crash cans, install a piece of box steel tube and mount the plow, same thing alot of people do when they want to mount a good bumper and winch and not worry about tearing off their front end.
By the way the air bags will still deploy if you do this.

My friend built a plow setup for his Classic and said he can build one for me on the Disco. No welding required. The airbag issue I am not worried about. My Chevy and Ford both had airbags and ridgid frames and plowing was never an issue. There is a whole list of events that have to be met for an airbag deployment. Not like the Steven Segall movie where he kicks the front bumper of the bad guys car and the bags deploy on em. I will submit pics when I am done with the install.
Thanks.

I guess he needs to plow some snow, probably for someone who doesn't have a kick-ass 4WD like we do :-P

Answer: Because I can!
Snow plowing is off roading in the winter.

These trucks, and thats what they are - trucks, were built to work. They were not built just to take the yuppie to the golf course.
We were dumped with almost two feet of snow this past weekend and my truck worked the balls. It handled the snow like a dream. I also made it up a hill that two other plow trucks got stuck on. One of the trucks was a municipal plow truck.
Why are you so against a plow on these trucks?
Are you afraid of making your truck do what it was designed for?
I bet you never take your truck off road. I bet the last time your diff loc shifter was moved was when your truck was built in England.
