    I plow my driveway and a neighbor (we barter). This storm another neighbor asked me to plow his AFTER 18" fell.

    Was not too concerned about getting stuck from the start, I only had to walk a few houses down to get the CJ (35" tires) to pull the XJ out. After getting out, it was fairly easy to finish the driveway, garages and entrance are all on the side of the driveway, pass back and forth with some momentum and leave snow at each end.

    Second stuck was trying to help the lady up the road get her LR un-stuck which she tried to get out earlier in the day, then plow guy came down hill, could only back up leaving a pile in front of her LR. I tried to clear snow pile off to the left and right, slid to teh left. Had to drag teh XJ sideways from another neighbors driveway using removable hitch mounted winch on CJ (8,000 lb unit, used snatch-block too).

    This was after I shoveled 5" the night before.

    There is a patio table under the pergola somewhere. I have to re-dig the path to the grille.

    you can build the 4bt to 200+ HP and 400 ft-lbs of torque, lol that should provide alot of fun.

    Nice set-up on the CJ. I've got a couple of them too, a 7 in pieces and a Scrambler.
