Need some advice for a 90 Jeep Cherokee

    I am thinking of using my 90 Jeep Cherokee XJ for plowing, next winter. My Jeep is a compact model XJ, has a rear hitch w/ standard towing package, Selectrac transmission, Off road tires and a Inline 6 engine. It is not lifted, and uses standard suspension. I would like to use it for plowing my residential driveway, and a few neighbor's driveways, too.

    I would like to attach a Hidden Hitch Front End Receiver Hitch, http://www.quadratec.com/products/92011_800_07.htm or a Olympic 65" Rock Front Bumper with Hitch in Rubicon Black, http://www.quadratec.com/products/12006_812.htm with a SnowSport® HDUtility Plow ,Model number 40160 http://www.agricover.com/index.php/products/category/C24

    Has anyone else used this setup, or something similar to plow residential driveways? I don't want to go through the expense of adding a full size plow, or modifing my vehicle radically for a few plow uses per winter. Denver, Colorado only gets about 3 snowstorms per year and it's not worth it to spend a great deal of $ for a full plow set-up.

    Can anyone steer me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

    I have a 2000 cherokee with a western LSX plow which is 7ft2in. It is not that heavy but I added coil spring air bags for a wrangler not to stress the front suspension. I also made a counter weight that fits into the reciever hitch which weighs 95lbs. Good luck mine has been going strong for 3 years going out about 20 times a year.
