Here is a French Owner Manual CJ-2A first Edition. It’s the first one that I seen. It must be a rare manual. A reader sent me a pdf copy of it. I had to compress it but it still readable.
Voici un manuel du propriétaire en français du CJ-2A première édition! Je suis certain que c’est un manuel assez rare, C’est la première fois que j’en vois un. On me l’a envoyé en format pdf. J’ai dû le compresser mais il demeure lisable tout de même.
So for all my french Canadian reader here it is;
Alors le voici pour tous mes canadiens français qui me suivent;
Here is two sheet about the DayBrook Dump Hoist for Gladiator from 1964. It was for the J-200 and J-300 Gladiator pick-up truck series. I never saw one before. It seem to be on the same principle as the Dump-O-Matic Dump bed.
Here is two set of two sheets about Go For Digger Trenching and Back Hoe form 1968. The mandatory vehicle equipment was a 7000 lb dual wheel full floating rear axle, belt driven governor, heavy-duty springs. Wow! I call that a bad ass!
Here is two sheet about Whitco Snap in Carpeting 1967 for Jeep!
Yep! Carpet! You were able to buy the snap-in carpet for Jeep Universals CJ-5 and CJ-6. It was available in three rich and warms colors: Charcoal Brown, Medium Red and Aquamarine. I never saw a Jeep with it but it would be great if you own one to share it with us.
This is now time again for the Donation Campaign! Why would you donate to my website? Well, it help me to keep it up by paying the web hosting fee and domain name registration fee. It also allow me to buy new literature about Willys Jeep.
I’m trying a new way to donate via my new (not yet complete and done) forum. You just need to follow this link Forum Donation webpage and enter the amount and click on the Donate button. This will open the Paypal webpage. You can send it via your own Paypal account or through your credit card.
Here is a booklet about the 1967 Ramsey Winches for Jeep. Those winches were PTO driven with a reliable 8000 lbs load capacity. This booklet is almost same as the one from 1966 Ramsey Winches . It doesn’t show the PTO option at the end.
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.
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.
Here is a 12 pages booklet about Ramsey Winches and PTO from 1959. This is booklet is newer than the one I previously posted here Ramsey Winches 1958. Even if they are looking the same, they aren’t. They made some changes in a year.
I really like the capstan CR7 winches on page 10. I think it would look very nice on my DJ-6.
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… Well, that is fast! I really like the push bumpers.
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.
