Plow on an auto 95 YJ

So my dad plows with a 94 S-10 pickup and that is pretty much about to **** the bed. He wants to know if he can use my YJ as a plow truck. I don't have any problems with it since he bought it for me, but I might depending on what may happen to it. I'm not sure of the size of the plow blade but I know it isnt that big considering its on his s10 but anyways

Will there be any negative effects on my jeep?

Will it be able to plow the snow?

I'm sure power isnt an issue but traction may be, right?

Thanks for the help I know you guys are gonna give me, you're all great.

I have a 80" wide SNOWBEAR snow plow on my stock '95 (4-cyl/5-spd) & have had no problems. I think where folks run into issues/problems is when they install large & heavy plows on a stock YJ. Then they have to beef up the front springs & shocks.

Regarding adding weight, yes, you should plan to add some weight to the back end. I add about 250# of weight (I built a wooden box 22"x37"x10"high then place solid cement slabs inside) just inside the tailgate. Without the weight, you'll get stuck if you plow down hill at all.

-- '95 YJ, 4-cyl, 5-speed.
From Dec-Mar, it wears an 80" snowplow. From Apr-Nov, it gets muddy on the 2-tracks!
