    Jeep Wranglers have a low tow rating (2000 lbs) unless you have an extended wheelbase version (Unlimited). The tow rating goes up to 3500 lbs. These are 2006 model specs. What is the GVWR of your trailer? What do you want to plow? How often?

    The pictures of the Wrangler look nice. You would have to get rid of the Get Stuck-Again (GS-A) spare tire and put on snow tires for plowing though!!!

    Only those people that own that tire know what you mean. :) My '08 came with those tires and I can get stuck on wet asphalt. :)

    I thought it was on DRY asphalt!!!:dizzy: My current summer tires are RS/As (really stuck again). They will need to be replaced this summer for something better.
