I have heard that the expression of "Johnson's Bar" was from the days of L. B. Johnson when he was governor of Texas and president. He had a group that did his strong arm work and was said that you will be hit with the Johnson Bar if you did not do what he wanted.

I live in Nova Scotia and have used one alot for stretching barbed wire. Also loaded a car on a flat a couple of times with one.

Here's a spin on the Johnson Bar. In aviation the Mooney. Aircraft Corp has a retractable landing gear. Since some time in the 70's they now have electric actuated gear. Prior to that they were referred to as "Johnson Bar Landing Gear" .

Weezer my family is as Northern as you get, if you fall down half of you will be in Canada. My parents were Canadians and we've always called them comealongs.
Not just a southern term more of a trucker term.

They are handy when you need a winch and small enough to carry.

Drill is a given anymore, I use it to lower all my stabilizers and even my tongue jack after a 99 cent mod. , hand crank has been retired except in an emergency. Rubber mallet and small sledge, an axe and hand saw. Propane torch for lighting fires better than a lighter or matches.
