Around here one of the main contract spray outfits used Willys Jeeps up until the last two disolved finally in the mid 1970's They had big Balloon tires and about a 150 gallon tank in the back with LONG spray booms that hinged off the back of the rig. We would see him racing up and down fields in the morning on our way to school on the bus. A couple other farmers in this area used them as Irrigation trailer and general get around the farm rigs.

This may have been posted before but I saw this on YouTube today.  Right at the 2:43 mark you can see a jeep pulling a hay rake.  Pretty cool to see these old farm jeeps in action.
