I had lined up a trade of one of my old AMC V-8's for a transmission and transfercase, and needed to load the engine on the trailer. The problem was the hydraulic cylinder on the cherry picker was dead and I needed to get the engine out of the back of my sprung over Jeepster on 35's and the over the rail and onto the trailer. The solution was to use the winch off this CJ-5, a piece of engine stand, and some jumper cables from a running Dodge truck. The strap holding the engine stand part didn't come until after I had crushed and possibly broken a finger or two on my right hand.
