Naaaaw, you don't need no brakes on a CJ.  I don't know why the manufacturer put 'em on in the first place.

Good photos and good to se another Willys working. You can see some pics of mine at www.mid-tennwillys.com under Workin' Willys. We just got back yesterday from a trail ride at LBL in western Ky. We had to take my wife's Sahara cause a bearing went out in the tranny on my 48. Sure need to get that thing fixed, I sure miss it around the farm.

brakes are a little soft, but hey at leas the E-brake works.

Rob, I checked that site out. it looks like you use yours around the farm a lot more than I do.

I find it perfect for the type of work that I did, Low range is snail pace low. Its short and easy to handle. and i was able to use it as a bench when it came time to put the wheels on the lines. Just put the lines across the front seats and install the wheels. Plus with the PTO winch I am going to be able to lower and manuver the line motor thats on a hill tomorrow by my self.

I will try to snap some more pics tomorrow
