    I'm new to this site and will soon be new to snowplowing. I've searched the site for using a jeep and or toyota pick-ups for plowing. I will be doing residential driveways about 100ft or more. Question is: If you had to spend less 5,000.00 would you buy a jeep 1994 or older or a Toyota pick-up 1994 or older? I all ready own a 1996 T100 but they don't recomend a plow for it!

    I run a toyota , it is a great little plow truck for light snows . I cant kill the thing . It is great to jump up on sidewalks , and plow driveways , Its down fall is it has no weight , heavy snows it is only good to clean up behind the loader. This is my second one the frame rust out and break after a few years of plowing . But I can pick up another truck for about 1000.oo and move the plow to the next victim.

    I own a 94' Yota, I bought it this summer it has 130,000 miles with a 2 year old 6.5' fisher minute mount plow. All for $4,000.

    So far I've only plowed one storm, but no problems. As far as a toyota goes you just can't kill them:cool:

    Jeeps are good for wheeling but I don't think they were built to work, but I could be wrong :p

    I run both,an 86 toyota 4runner and a 98 tj. The jeep will turn arround inside of some driveways,which is real convienent. I've been using the 4runner this year so far because i just" set it up"
    Both ate rugged and dependable vehicles,but when it comes to long life the toyota wins,mine has 264,000 miles on it .Which one is better?? tough decision????
