1975 Jeep CJ5 Viking winch

I just bought a 1975 CJ5 with a Viking winch. Is anyone familiar with these winches from that era?

The winch isn't that old, Viking hasn't been around that long. Also, Viking is not a winch manufacturer, it was made for them and very likely in Taiwan.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Good info, it's clear the Viking winch I was thinking of is not the same as the Viking winch the OP asked about. Obviously two different companies, thanks!
