    Absolutely can be done.....

    I have a 93 Wrangler, 4.0, auto and a 90' Wrangler 2.5, 5 sp both with 6.5 fishers. Good for drives up to 8" or so in a pass. Don't expect the 2.5 to keep up with the 4.0 though.

    I run the 4.0 with 4:11 gears locked up in the rear, 33 swampers. it works great it pushes like a tank. I definetly would consider upgrading the clutch, that would be the first to go. I installed a dual friction centerforce its on its thrid season and it works great. The stock clutch just wont cut it.

    Jeep plows and clutches

    Cj's are the greatest all around plow vehicles there are. My Cj's of various years and engine sizes, 4 cylinders, L- heads, F-heads, overheads and V-8's never fried a clutch while plowing. The reason is very simple_ When you plow you are not supposed to slip your clutch. You are supposed to choose the right gear ratio and take your foot off the clutch and go. Use low range, and start off in first or second gear. You don't plow with a jeep in high range if you have any significant accumulation.

    Use your gears not your clutch to manage your load!
