UPDATE: Back in 2012 I ran across a pic of this CJ-5 on Flickr (1st one shown below). Now, thanks to rob, we have a series of photos of this North Carolina CJ-5, custom built by the owner.  Sure looks handy!

    It sure does. One other thought is that maybe it is part of a dually connector assembly, but I doubt it.

    The engineering is top notch, you got to have some kind of background to do this, admirable indeed. Having said that, with all that extra added weight, what was done to improve suspension? I doubt those stock Jeep leaf springs could hold up under all that extra weight.

    I’m impressed….& green. Gonna guess he’s got a PTO on a 4sp. tranny or it’s xfer case. Doubt that a pulley drive would handle all dat juice. No turns while bucket’s down?!
