    I want to be just like Neige when I grow up, so here's mine.

    Pic from last spring.
    Two have moved on and Frankenstein, back right, is parked with an uncertain future.

    All looks good except no snow. These fleet pics would all look better if we could only see from the hubs up.

    I'll find some hubs up.

    Shop is 50x100 and full to the tixx.

    I hate it when this happens.

    4 out of 5 jeeps have Homesteaders, be it Fisher or Western.
    One Myers.

    I wouldn't think you would want to use a truck like a jeep in commercial applications.

    Put one in a small lot or driveways and I bet they would be pretty ideal.

    Jeeps just don't seem that tough for the rigors of commercial works,

    Quite a few guys on here run them with good results. I believe one guy even has a 7.6 or 8.2 Boss V on a wrangler.

    I'm sure you can use them. But the front ends of Jeeps are not exactly all that tough.

    Yep that is a dream shop, awesome! What repair are you doing to have to pull the cab on the truck?

    Jeep sites are more resi than commercial, most of my area managers are in them.
    Fit just about anywhere and way quicker than a two speed SS.
    Clutches are an issue but whatcha gonna do.

    Still, you're doing a lot of residential units with these trucks. Not just one house, but maybe what 20-30 houses? And how much snow can the jeep really handle when it is pushing?

    Do a driveway with that. I dare you.

    And go talk to the plowmeister, he has a Fisher 7.6 RD(HD) on one TJ and a 7.6 Boss V on another TJ.

    I have 2 7.6 RDs and his jeep holds it better than my 1/2 ton Chevy.

    Do you honeslty think he'd have 5 of them if they weren't efficient? Use your head a little. Also I'm guessing his route is a lot more then 20-30 houses. Nice pics. BTW
