One of my friends that works ( well retired now ) at the Jeep plant in Toledo has a CJ 2A
Runs like a top
he brought it out to my place a couple of times when we used to have out monthly M&Gs
Fun having his, a CJ, TJ, XJ, KJ and also a brand new KK plus people from 6 states all in one spot for a good weekend

Back in the early 70s I saw one of the Jeep In A Box, old guy I hung out with just bought it and built it over the winter
all seals leaked, tires were dry rotted , well you get the picture
He had bought it from an Estate Sale , guy had bought it years before and died

Today's Jeep's accessories are nothing compared to what was available for the classic Jeep's!
After WW2, manufacturers provided a wealth of utilities for the Jeeps. Many were driven by the front & rear PTO's !!
Some of these, I have never seen before!
I wonder if there is a museum somewhere, that may display them ?

Yes plows, post hole diggers, backhoe setups and many other things were available for them
I know where a backhoe setup for one is
sadly the old barn is falling in around it and the family won't sell it or the farm or anything
House, grainery, barn still standing but all in very poor shape
One brother refuses to sell for some reason
OH and a dual wheel setup in there as well still with stock tires/wheels, complete rear diff with HD springs

I grew up near an Army training base.
There were always rumor that there were "Crates of guns and Jeeps still packed in cosmoline" buried on the Old Fort's small arms impact area; along with the "my brother's uncle's former boss's sister-in-laws accountant knows right where they are":confused:

I thought only the Russians used cosmoline. I remember driving an old military Jeep when I first joined the National Guard in 1989, yes that unit still had a couple

Be aware...many are listed as Parts Only / Not working, tuner does not work etc. Were they made in China? o_O

Even the one you posted mentions-tuning issues. The rear of the boombox online photo indeed has a plate Made by TeleMania- shows made in china.:rolleyes:
They also made a rare Titanium cased TV version/ w/ no cassette- Wilson Power Brand JXTV.
Where it was made, not sure.
