We are a bunch of prepared muddafookers, that's right!

I put studded tires on the van and bought a snow plow in the last two weeks.

The thing that got me looking at jackshaft openers is that for a 12 foot door the liftmaster unit is ~$600.

The trolley type openers that could go 12 feet high were big bucks: http://bit.ly/ZuMo3l...

ATV with snow plow - education needed.

You know I have a Jeep Liberty (4wd) sitting here doing nothing... Is there a type of plow that could mount to such a thing?

I always assumed plows needed big full framed trucks.
