    Just wondering if anyone uses a Jeep Wrangler for snow removal? What type of blade do you use and how effective is this? I am just starting a Landscaping business and i have a few customers wanting snow removal also. I do not get large amounts, usually. Here in Virginia we may get 3 or 4 inches 2 or 3 times a year. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi!! :waving: And WELCOME!!! I'm sort of new here myself and have found this site to be a wealth of info. Try out the search function located up top and I'm sure your questions will be answered

    We're using a Wrangler for the first time this year and having only one push under our belts, it's hard to give a overall opinion. BUT.... From what we've seen so far.... For tight spots it can't be beat. :nod:

    Try this thread...

    Hope it works....

    jeep wranglers are great plow trucks for tight areas and smaller drivways. meyer, western and sno-way all work great on jeep wranlgers. 6.5 is the best size blade to put on one:)

    we have used jeep wranglers for many years . They work great for sidewalks and small lots but have the power to do the work of a large plow truck. we use western standard 6.5, no problems:)

    I have '97 TJ with western sport plow it's 6 1/2 ft and use it for our small office parking lot. Select winter tires and don't let snow get deeper than 6 inches and it will handle it well. Last year we had some deep drifting snows and pushing that around took a long time as the light weight of the jeep and blade just made more work. The jeep is definitely great in tight turns and small spaces.
    Don't bother with a 4 cylinder or autobox as that will just be useless. Also a limited slip diff would be nice if you can get that as I did get stuck at times an the open diff just doesn't't help much even with 4 wheel drive.
    I also had a CJ with a heavy 6ft western blade that was awesome, but I got tired of fixing it and it was no way as comfy as the TJ,

    Good luck
