    Are any of you Jeep guys plowing w/ the 4cylinder? Curious if they can get the job done. Is the drivetrain different between the 4 and the 6?

    Have both 4cyl (5 speed) and 6cyl (auto).... There is NO difference in capability that I have seen. We run 6 1/2' blades. One is a backup, and the other to do 80 accounts...drives, private roads, and a Courtyard Hotel. I actually prefer the 4cyl 5 speeds over the 6 cyl auto. Have the joysick mounted right to the shiftknob. Hands never leave the wheel and gear shift. Left leg does get sore though..... As far as the drive train yes they are different in terms of gearing ratios, etc but they both (90-99?) have the same crappy rear.

    I started plowing in 1994 and up until 2003 I had various Ford diesels, sold my last the first time I bought a Jeep. I will never plow drive and small tight lots with anything else as long as I make the decisions around here.
