Winter Plowing? Any suggestions?

hey guys i live in cleveland and we get well....an ass load of snow every winter (last few have been a dewsy).

I'm running a stock 95 YJ 2.5 with a 5-Speed with some beefy tires. I was wondering IF i could do some light plowing in the winter (more likely just driveways up and down my block) and if so what ill need to do it??

And if i can plow does anyone have any ideas of where i could get a cheap used plow?...like i said nothing serious just something to clean up a few driveways and make a little christmas cash. Thanks Jeepers!

Some citys,countys use TJs
they use plows and sell them off
for upgrades

I wouldnt plow very hard
or heavy

I would get a ATV 4x4 with plow
a trailer and use the jeep to tow
it around and really make some cash

the yj is really to small and light to plow snow with. When pushing snow the jeep will have a tendency to be pushed off to the side instead of the snow. Not to mention the whole thing is not beefy enough to handle, its not made for that.

Ain't gonna happen with that 2.5.Maybe with a 4.0.

Why not just move down here to south texas with me and we can shovel sand instead of snow

A regular plow's hitch will hand too low to allow wheeling.

There is a light duty plow that has higher mounts. I can't remember the name though.
