    '96 Cherokee I'm assuming (since they didn't make a Wrangler in '96). Yes you can push with it.

    I have Never heard of a Jeep "Sport" but iam assuming Jeep Cherokee Sport edition, somewhat like my 98 but slightly different look in the front grill otherwise the same.

    If thats what you mean, yes you can plow with it, best plows for the Cherokee are Snoways, Blizzard 680 LT or 720 LT, Western Unimount 6'6" (NOT the suburbanite) or Curtis 7' which is what i have. The Curtis is a great plow but slightly on the heavy side for the Cherokee. You will need airbags in the front, dont go with timbrens, I had them last year and they made the Cherokee ride MUCH rougher then it should have. Normally the timbrens dont do that but this is especially pronounced in jeeps for some reason. You need an auxilliary transmission cooler if you dont alredy have one. Other then that you will find that the Cherokees push great for their small size, you do need to be careful with them as they are unibody and you dont want to go ramming into things too hard with it. Just take it easy, I wont say never plow anything over 6" or so because you can plow more if your careful about it. You also need weight in the back, I use 500 LBS for my cherokee with a 460 LB plow on the front, with the weight and airbags, I dont get any sag with the plow up. I take the plow off the second iam finished and with the Cherokee I also unload the ballest (tube sand) provided that there is no snow forecast for the immediate future.
