Default Jeep Cj or Wrangler - anyone know them?

I was thinking of a CJ or Wrangler with a plow. I never owned one and haven't worked on one in 30 years. Anyone shed any light on the drivetrain,common problems, value, MPG, and how they are with a plow?
I'm not out looking just interested in any feedback.
Thanks

He just called in fact woke me up from a good snooze....i'ts nice to be retarred...., anyway I mentioned someone maybe getting in touch.....

He only 24, but works on his own shit, and was asking about brakes and stuff, he already did a full disc brake change out on the rear drums....course on electrical crap, long time ago I gave him a Fluke DVM and so every once in a while I gotta explain how to use it...so he picks up the phone and it's a hands on routine......

Gene,
Your boy emailed me a ton of info, I never knew about Jeeps. I'll save it so if I ever see one locally I like I'll have something to go on. Not ever owning one, who knows if I'll even like the Wranglers.
Thanks for the help.
