    Hello I am new here and I am planning on purchasing a 680LT for my Jeep. What do you guys think of this plow? I have a small lot at my business which I plan on using it there and maybe plow a couple of smaller driveways. Any input would be appreciated.

    I have a very clean 1987 Jeep YJ 4.2 litre 5-speed. I have another YJ with an older Meyers set up which works fantastic but the truck is showing its age and still great for a backup vehicle.

    I wouldn't hesitate to go with the 720. That extra width adds up fast to make for less passes, especially in a lot. And the six is strong enough to push it.

    Magnum, the 720 or a 680 with wings works great on the jeeps.

    Hey Jerre, do those wings have any forward angle to them? Was thinking if they did it may work sorta like a speedwing. Where can I find pics?
    I'm thinking I like the 720 not just for the width but a little taller too. I'd really like a 760 speedwing but they won't let me put one on a Wrangler. I think I could put wheels on it for transport mode. Then I could raise the plow and drive it in 4wd with the front wheels driving and steering, and the rear wheels a foot in the air. ;>

    Dan we did a speed wing for Fred Pickering last season. Front suspension package a must but still under GVW for the rig and it handled it well. All types of forward sweep wings that will go on the blades.
