I would take the 6.5 and add pro wings. At the low rate of speed that the wrangler will be moving snow, they should hold up fine on the 6.5' plow.

We have a 6.5' on our 95 wrangler and it works fine.

Worried about your plow being too short? Sounds like a personal problem . . .

We have a friend that plows one account with a Jeep/6-5 plow, a storage facility. It takes him awhile but it does get the job done. As said above, pro wings could always be added later on.
