I bought a Honda Ridgeline. This project was inspired by many other DIY wooden snow plow (back hitch) projects on Internet, so I decided to make one myself using 3/4″ plywood, 2×4, 2×6, 4×4 and other basic materials found in local hardware store. Taking advantage of the 2″ back hitch of my 2017 Honda Ridgeline, this project has been pretty fun. I have added some annotation to the photos, it is pretty self explanatory.

    1. It wasn’t that time consuming, it was fun. I just DIY it during my spare time. BTW, it’s pretty cheap already…. total parts was around $250 US. If you can build one in 1/5 of the time and being more effective, I will buy it from you for $250 US. okay?
