1975 CJ-5 Bitely, MI eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features, Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

It started life as a 1975 Jeep CJ5 Chassis. As near as we can tell, it was converted when new into a street-sweeper by the PB Loader company (which is still in existence today). Sometime later in life, someone got the bright idea to remove the street sweeper broom and replace it with a 62 inch quick attach skid-steer style snowblower (Ford 715 Model). We understand that the PB loader company made a similar model for airport tug use.
