UPDATE: Thanks to Jan for pointing out that on page 4 are two photos of a 2A with a driver’s side spare tire. That would suggest that this issue was printed later than around mid-1948. Given the Santa highlight on the cover, I’d say the Fall/Winter of 1948 prior to the introduction of the CJ-3A. If that’s the case, then maybe these came out every six months? 

Thanks to Jan in the Netherlands for sharing a scanned version of the late 1940s issue of ‘Jeep’ News Volume 1, Number 6.  The “Cristie’s” at the top of the banner is a reference to Cristie’s Garage out of Monticello, New York.

I wonder if the Mahl Loader shown in a photo on Page 6 out of Minnesota is the one that was restored here.

    Would anyone know where in Monticello Criste’s Garage was located? Being familiar with the area, just curious.

    This issue contains several interesting items. The page 4 ‘lefty” also came with the new Monroe lift and Newgren implements introduced in 1948. On page 3, in addition to the Malh loader, is a reference to the Monroe lift’s “500 pounds” of down pressure when using the scraper. The down pressure feature, created by using a “2-way” hydraulic cylinder, was a big selling point for Monroe.
    On the same page is a reference to custom baling. That was a major use of the Jeep here in the midwest. On page 7 is a Jeep equipped with a TMC hydraulic lift and bulldozer blade. You can read about them at
    Great find and big thanks to Jan for sharing!
