    Mine has a 6 cyl, we are just mounting plow to now. From the experience with other plow trucks though with base engins, you usually run out of traction long (break tires free) long before you run out of power.

    They work great, take twenty minutes and read the "Jeep" section or use the search function and you will find plenty of info. As you can see by the many pages of "Jeep" posts there is plenty of info on Jeeps for you ~BigD

    Jeeps are awsome plow trucks , gearing is the key not size of motor . As long as your not plowing highways for hours on end it will be fine.

    As most others have said you will run out of traction long before power. I had a '97 TJ with a 2.5 L 5-Speed manual trans, and it was a great machine. I had a Boss 7'6" Sport Duty on the front, and pushed 12" at times. Make sure you carry ballast, and put some help in the front (timbrens, airbags, or air shocks).
