    Looks great. Did you put pro wings on the plow?

    How's the jeep do with heavy, wet snow, say 6" or so? I've thought about getting 2 identical jeeps to do driveways only, but have worried about how they would do pushing uphill with heavy, wet snow…

    Sure can't beat them for maneuverability though!

    Yes I put them on about 2 years ago. They work very well. That being said I have wacked them a few times and needed some welding repairs. I also had my buddy make the wings taller welding on some steel. Keep more of the snow from rolling over the top of the wing. Could actually be a little taller yet.

    I have been plowing with this Jeep since 2009. The Jeep is an animal. Heavy wet snow level ground no problem depending on the length of the push. Straight blade of course. Angle the blade and it will eventually push the Jeep to the side. I maintain all of my accounts so I'm not pushing a foot of snow at a clip. I have had no problems with even the occasional foot of snow push. I have the best tires I think you can buy (Blizzacks) and I have a Rubicon with locking axles, but I have only needed to lock them like once or twice. Jeeps are just flat out perfect for driveways and small parking lots. Even a large lot could be done just more trips.
