    I wonder if Kaiser Willys considered this an infringement of their “JEEP” brand name, or was there some kind of licencing agreement?

    The Scheneker “Dozerette” also used the Jeep name for a while. However, that was prior to Willys-Overland winning the trademarked.

    As for Blackhawk, they might have argued that “Jeep-Jack” was the full name, which would differentiate it from just “Jeep”. Moreover, as a “tool”, I would imagine it could have been in a different category than the “Jeep” trademark, which was in the vehicles category ( IC 012. US 019. G & S: AUTOMOBILES AND STRUCTURAL PARTS )

    A similar example of that was “Mr. Jeep”, filed by Brian Chuchua in the IC 037. US 103. G & S: MOTOR VEHICLE MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR SERVICES and awarded to him in 1988.

    I have a creeper that has Jeepers Creepers painted on it. It’s pretty hard to read anymore.
    Don’t know how old but is looks like the one my dad rolled around on 50 years ago.
