Here's a look at a few pages from some Willys promotional booklets from the 1940s and 50s, featuring specs and action photos of the Jeep Fire Engine (CJ-2A, 3A and 3B versions), the Jeep Crash Wagon (3A, 3B and CJ-5 versions), the Commando Fire Truck, Willys Ambulance, and more.

This edition of Willys-Overland's special equipment catalogue (c.1947) had an amazing range of aftermarket accessories already available for the CJ-2A. It included eight pages on firefighting equipment.
This early 6-page folder (circa early 1947) was apparently designed as a mailer, but was quite large (8.5x11", folding out to 8.5x33"). A page on the 200-gallon water trailer stated it could provide 10 minutes of water or foam.
This Willys-Overland Export Corp. booklet scanned by Mark Ciaglia apparently pre-dates the domestic CJ-3B Jeep Fire Engine Brochure, and thus lacks much of the specialized information found there. But it has the usual bold design style of the Export Corp.
