    I always liked these early black & white Jeep TV commercials, as a child back in the late 1950’s & early 60’s, I would make sure I watched the TV programs that Kaiser Jeep sponsored. It wasn’t because I liked the TV shows, it WAS because I liked The JEEP COMERICALS. I remember a similar one to the one just viewed where a Jeep pickup equipped with a winch pulled a school bus tittering on a cliff back to safety.

    Ramsey PTO winch and tripod. Same rigging used on our ’71 (See ad below, right) in its first life on a Wyoming cattle ranch to pull water well heads for service. Ramsey 8000 winch is still on the CJ. Never got the tripod in the purchase.
