Look into the way they were selling Jeeps just after WWII. They had them set up to do farming with PTOs. Good Luck, Rick

As cool as it is, I think I'd wind up pulling the BH off and just blast around with it.

When I was in elementary school, there was a guy who lived by the school and had a surplus flat fender with a ladder trencher on it.
Interesting guy, he also had a pet red fox.

The 75 CJ5 is one of the vehicles I let get away and have regretted it ever since.

That is interesting,,,never seen one but no doubt they had to get creative to pedal all that war surplus.. I know up here there were numerous Bren Gun carriers put to work skidding trees.
