You sure it's 2wd? Didn't they make 4x4 civics around those years?

4x4 is a bit of a stretch. it was a pretty weak and anemic AWD, but stock it was not available in the standard EF Hatch body style.

the AWD variants were the more upright 'wagon' style. looked like this: http://i.tnpv.us/pv/2004/08/12/HON2004081272483_pv.jpg

regardless I am curious wtf/how they mounted a plow mount to the soft/lightweight front unibody on that. those things run forever, but are not very robust as far as structurally. hell when I did the clutch job on my old 89 Si model one could basically one-hand bench the transmission down from beneath...

the plow setup probably weighs more then the damn car. would be pretty funny to see that plowing a parking lot. i'd be laughing my ass off.

There's a lot around here that plows with a late 70's Toronado and I thought that was funny. That Civic is great! lol

Reminds me of that diesel yj that was towing a 3axle trailer with a backhoe on it. It is possible.

I must have missed that one. while it apparently towed it... I sure hope that trailer had serious brakes on it.
