    Welcome Frank, the 6.5 would be just fine for your jeep but you could go with a 7ft and still get in those tight spots.

    I would take the 6.5 and add pro wings. At the low rate of speed that the wrangler will be moving snow, they should hold up fine on the 6.5' plow.

    We have a 6.5' on our 95 wrangler and it works fine.

    Worried about your plow being too short? Sounds like a personal problem . . .

    We have a friend that plows one account with a Jeep/6-5 plow, a storage facility. It takes him awhile but it does get the job done. As said above, pro wings could always be added later on.

    He said he found a poly plow. Can you put pro wings on a poly?

    is my plow short?

    I plow for years with 6.5 's on Jeep CJ's. No sweat.

    As my carpenter friends say, it ain't the tools, it's the carpenter. So as you develop your skills as a driver, get that special intuition that you can back up to where you started just by counting seconds in your head, visualize your paths and stack areas before you even attack a drive or lot, you will find a cj with 6.5 is adequate and angles snow just fine at full left or right. But I do recommend chains on that little gal just so she can stop if ice is under the snow!
