what is pto?

Power take off, in my realm in the fire service we have pto pumps meaning that the engine will power the pump and the drive train at the same time, as opposed to one or the other, our bigger engines it's either In pump or drive where the smaller brush unit can pump and drive due to the PTO pump

Make sense? So basically the motor can power the drive train and another piece of equipment at the same time

After WWII Jeeps were marketed as utility vehicles for a lot of different jobs, including farming.  The PTO originally allowed them to pull equipment normally reserved for tractors.  I did a fair amount of research over ten years ago when I still had my 1960 DJ3.  I want get another flat fender Jeep one day.  They're slow, moody, and most need a lot of work these days, but the classic original look is unmatched by anything since.  Then again, I'm a fan of military history, so a CJ-3B might suffice, since they are similar to the Korean War era M38A1.  One of these days...

Crazy how tiny it is compared to a modern Jeep

 

Unfortunately, I doubt that Fiat Chrysler will ever make a Jeep with the charm and rugged utility of the M-series or even the simple off-road capability and versatility of the CJ series.  I'm biased, of course, but modern safety standards (not to mention convenience and luxury option necessary to enhance sales) make today's Jeeps little if any more practical than most other 4wd vehicles for off road use.  Military use is improbable at best--they simply wouldn't hold up to what I've put HMMWVs and even LMTVs through.  

 

Even so, it's nice that modern Jeep Wranglers at least maintain the basic appearance of their predecessors.

I love flatties, but they don’t work so well for 6’6” 300+ lb. guys....

True, mine was comfortable enough but still a little small for my 5'11" height.  The military knows how to make even the largest vehicles uncomfortably small, though.  Armored HMMWV variants are cramped for someone even my size, especially when you add body armor and battlefield tracking systems.

Yeah, I sat in a civvy version and was amazed at how tight it was.
