Which should I put a plow on?

    I'm trying to decide if I should put a plow on my 02 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab with a duramax, or my 97 Jeep Wrangler.

    I'm going to be plowing my driveway and taking on one or two plow jobs.

    I've been leaning toward the Jeep thinking that it would be easier to manover, but it also seems if I have a big truck it would be a better pusher.

    My driveway is only about 150' long and there would be some back dragging.

    The plow job I'm taking on is a long driveway about 2/10 of a mile with a tight circular drive at the end. There isn't much extra room at the end of the drive to push snow. It would also require back dragging in front of the garage.

    I'm really torn between a 6'8" Snoway or 6'6" Meyers for the Jeep or a 8' or 8'6' Fisher or other brand for the Chevy.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I would put the plow on the jeep if you are going to be doing small parking lots and driveways. Yet if you want to get into more commercial plowing to 2500 is the only way to go.

    * My bet is with in 2 years you will have a plow on both :p

    Go with the 02 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab with a duramax, you will be sorry if you don't. Just my 2 cents

    Go with the 2500HD and Fisher over time you will pick up more jobs.

    I vote for the 2500 duramax. The Jeeps blow up too easily.

    Duramax. If you go with the Jeep, I'd definitely opt for the snoway over the meyers. downpressure.
