Snow plowing

I have a 2004 tj with an automatic, would it be ok to snow plow or would it burn up my transmission?

You'd be fine. Keep it out of OD if you have one and make sure that your plowing in 4 lo with any substantial snow amount. Use the gears. I have a Rubicon with a 5 speed so its a little different but i regularly use 3rd and 4th to keep the shifting to a minimum and the rpms up to produce good power/speed for moving snow. I have 10 driveways and a road I plow and it works like a charm. A trans cooler isnt a bad idea and is cheap money for any worries that you might have.

Put a big tranny cooler on it, maybe a gauge also. If you take it easy it will be ok. If you are plowing 2 feet of snow from a lot that has to be open right away, get a 3/4 or 1 ton truck.

You can use Rubicon mount for lift kit and tires. Put 22 series which put an excellent application on wrangler.
