    I have heard second hand info of people running Wrangler's with a front plow and a pull plow on the rear at the same time.

    I do mostly residential work and I am thinking of going that way to increase my productivity.

    I have a Jeep Wrangler 2005 Unlimited.

    The hole point of a wrangler is small and maneuverable... kind of loose that with the added width and length of a pull plow.

    I find a V plow helps a lot with productivity.

    maybe a nice straight blade with a back drag edge
    however the pull plow is not a bad idea at all i wish i had one

    No you don't, especially on a small vehicle like a jeep. The pull plow will make it that much better.

    Road2Damascus (Mike) is set up this way. That Jeep is AMAZING for residential. Do it, and watch your productivity soar! Ask him about it. I've seen. It's FANTASTIC.

    No plow company sells a v plow that will fit a Jeep Wrangler.

    Yes there is a guy that was able to put a Boss UTV plow on his Wrangler. Though he was able to do the work or afford to have the custome work done to mount the UTV plow on a Wrangler.

    This is just ridiculous.

    How can a tool that increases productivity on just about anything, especially driveways, be a bad thing?

    I'm guessing you've never used a back blade? Or at least hoping.

    The issue is that he's comparing apples to oranges. His thought is that the Jeep's advantage over a pickup is its shorter length and better maneuverability. His thought process then considers the extra length of the back blade taking away that advantage...but he forgot to factor in what a back blade would do on a pickup. Sure, the Wrangler with the back blade might be almost as long as a pickup without a back blade, but the pickup can't do back blade work. A Wranger with a back blade is just as much shorter than a pickup with a back blade as a Wrangler without is shorter than a pickup without.

    I have a Jeep with 83,000 miles. Owned since new. Not going to buy a truck to plow with. Either I to buy a truck or the plows, can not afford to buy both.

    Yes a Wrangler has the size advantage compared to a pickup without a plow. Still has the advantage when both have front plows and when both have front and rear plows.

    Looking at the black Jeep photos in this thread it looks as if that Jeep would still be shorter then a full size pickup with just a front plow.

    Thing is I have seen some plows that do not back drag well. And, I it seems that being able to pull plow well make me get my jobs done faster.

    Plowmeisters v plow at the front and a daniels pull plow at the back of a rubicon would be the perfect plowing machine for driveways.
    I have a pull plow on a pick up and a WISH i had a v plow instead of a straight one

    As it seems most of you like the idea of a pull plow, you will most likely want to hang me for this but, I see a pull plow as a total waste of money, especially for home driveway applications. Sorry guys but thats just my thoughts.

    Say whatever you want, 60 years of experience says you're oh so very wrong.
