I built this when I lived in New Mexico, I stated off as a cherokee but under alot of mods it ended up on full width axles, 37 in tires spooled front and rear etc. but alas the desert finally caled the end of the cherokee after rolling over and constant beatings. I felt I needed to step it up to the next level. the jeep got gutted and I began bending tube and transplanting everything I could. after alot of fabricating, parts, and alot of planning it ended up as this beast..  Its been alot of fun and enjoy driving it around. People give me alot of looks and police dont harrass me when I drive it into town since Its legal to drive atvs and snowmobiles into town

Yes it has the gear ratio to pull a plow. I have thought of that since Ive been using it more of a tractor than anything else. Ive been using it to pull out trees and moving things around
