I bought a 1964 CJ5 in 1976. It already had a 225 Dauntless V6 installed, but was original otherwise. It also has a Koenig PTO winch.
I drove it as my only "car" for nearly 20 years, and used the winch to build a log house to live in. (I made a crane with the winch to lift logs.)
The Jeep still lives here with chains on all fours and provides me with firewood (my only heat source). It still functions fine (although I had to replace the front springs after the crane duty!)
Larry's Comment: Jay...you are using your Jeep for what it was intended...and then some! We often forget that Jeeps were most often designed and used as tools to accomplish work tasks to help support ourselves and our families.
I like your pioneer spirit!
