Early CJ-5 Space These pictures were shot by Marvin Patchen in 1959 for Motor Life magazine (which was later folded into Motor Trend magazine) as part of the De Anza trail ride from near Hemet, California, to Borrego Springs. Here we see an early CJ-5 packed to the gills with camping gear. This CJ has a custom rear bumper holding two jerrycans and nice boonie box. One can has a faucet attached near the bottom for water. The box on the back of the Jeep wears a California license plate with a Hemet-labeled frame and a vintage AAA auto club sticker. The bumper also has a trailer hitch and some sort of strange cast steel pipe fitting. Just behind the passenger side front tire is a Hemet, California Cavalcaders Jeep Club plaque. We are betting that this is a CJ-5 and not an M38A1, because there is a passenger side glovebox in the dash just peeking out from the slightly open door.
