There were Slave receptacles that could be added, and cold starting kits that were mounted in jeeps and used to boost tactical vehicles. Not sure when they first became available during WWII.
The instructions for the Evanair Heater describe installing a tarp around the bottom of the trucks.

Kinda boring, things seem to be slow, my MV's are resting in doors and snowbound. Easiest way to share and enjoy them is here on G-503.
I do fire off the CCKW periodically just as there is a lot of iron sitting there and it's old bones could use a little heat-mine too. :wink:
That Yellow Bridge plate? Compliments of Willy here on G-503 a few years back. Many Euro Return CCKW's still had their bridge plates, don't remember seeing many on fresh surplus CCKW's here in the US back in the 40's-50's. :wink:

REMINDER:
The OEM Trailer Socket and Door for CCKW (Chevy, too,) are manufactured by DELCO and not WARNER as on Jeeps. They have slightly different features.
The DELCO brand are hard to come by.

Another Do-Dad for your CCKW that is sure to start a conversation would be a set of 6 Volt Electric Defrosters. Sorry, no pics as I am not anywhere near my NOS Defrosters.
They mount to the inner windshield via 4 suction cups and do restrict the limited vision of the Closed Cab CCKW' When considering adding defrosters to your MV be aware that these will all be WWII vintage and time takes a toll. There are at least 4 different brands, and they may be junk although NOS. What happens is that the rubber seal on some gets hard and brittle and will not allow the device to compress against the glass, others may have broken grid wires, and some will have suction cups that have hardened.
Back in the 40's-50's when fresh Jeeps, CCKW's roamed the roads, these defrosters were popular and good sellers.
