Koenig Uses of King Winches

Koenig Uses of King Winches

Winches are a tool and like with any other tools you need to know how to use it properly to avoid getting hurt. I think all users of winches should read this. It is valid for any kind/make of winches.

You need a winches if you are going out for trail alone. This is the first thing to buy! Even before buying bigger tires! Don’t forget that the Willys Jeep is the “go anywhere” vehicle right from the factory. They are designed with the proper tire size already. And this is also true for modern car like the JK. If you trail with other people and always count on them to winch you out, then they will get tire of you. So go to buy a winch!

Here is eleven nice sheets about Uses of King Winches from Koenig.

I’ve seen a lot of young guy’s going out for trail without knowing how to use their winches. The first things is you need to wear thick leather gloves to manipulate a steel cable. You need to put something like a carpet on the cable so if it broke, it will not flight all around and snap you. Modern winches are using synthetic cables but they can still be dangerous.

Koenig Super Cab Half and Full Top

Koenig Super Cab Half and Full Top

Here is 4 nice sheets about the Koenig Super Cab Half and Full Top. I think the main difference between the Koenig and Meyer top is the windows of the door. The Meyer windows look like diamond-shaped and the Koenig one’s is completely square.

What I like also from this ads is the full body extensions  on the last page. And I need to mention the vertical rear doors option. This is what I would bought.

Enjoy it!

Koenig Power take off 1958

Koenig Power take off 1958

Here is sheet about the Koenig Power take off from 1958 advertising the split-shaft PTO. It run separately so you get power only where you need it.

I think the model 50 is one of the most desirable but I’m now considering the model 58.

Enjoy it!

 

Koenig King Winches and PTO 1960

Koenig King Winches and PTO 1960

Here is a 8 pages Booklet about Koenig King Winches and PTO from 1960. It described all kind; front-rear-bed winches with single-dual PTO. I don’t know how they compare with the Ramsey one’s.

I look for Koenig on the net and I found this website : Koenig winches parts. I don’t know what it’s worth.

Look like Koenig Iron Works is out of business.

Enjoy it!

Canfield tow truck equipment

Canfield tow truck equipment

Here is a booklet about Canfield tow truck equipment. If your grand-father owned a garage it might had one of these. It was used on FC-150, FC-170, pickup truck and even on the CJ-5. I use to see it on FC truck. It mentioned that in less than 1 minute your pickup becomes a wrecker… :scratch: Well, that is fast! I really like the push bumpers.

Enjoy it!

Warn Hubs 1960 Lockomatic

Warn Hubs 1960 Lockomatic

Here is a booklet about the very popular Warn Hubs looking hubs AND Warn hubs lockomatic. It’s two different models. They are not the same.  It seem that I have the Lock-o-matic model for my DJ-6 project. They are also marked M3B (Yep is a B not an 8) which I don’t know what it’s mean yet.

Here is a picture of mine:
