    Speedhut gauges

    Thanks. Turns out I was able to replace the stock temp sensor with the one speed hut provided and it appears to work. Last questions for those that have done this: What have you used to "cap-off" the speedo-gear housing on the transfer case? I have the stock Dana 300

    Speedhut gauges

    BW: Correct on the fuel wiring. I will likely use the sender signal wire and try to pick up the ground at the sender ground. I can do that without dropping the tank. Of course, my Crown/Omix sender float is probably filled with fuel and not providing accurate indication so dropping the tank...

    JP Magazine Done

    I currently am ----er----WAS a subscriber to JP Magazine, I did not know it was cancelled until seeing this thread. It's a shame really, my 7 and 4 year old would grab it from the mailbox and run down the driveway to give it to me shouting "DAD! you got a new jeep magazine." Then I would sit...

    My Retro Sound aftermarket stereo has started to have a very weak output. I believe it started around the time my alternator was unknowingly going bad and since I replaced the alternator. Both speakers work, head unit appears to work correctly, but volume at max volume the speakers only seem...

    How did it do towing the Scrambler, understanding that the CJ is not at full weight? Would you use it to transport long distance to events or do you think just around town?

    Jeeps and trees

    Well, since we have been using a fake Christmas tree for the past 3 years; I only have pictures of the Scrambler getting the next most-piney-est thing North Carolina has to offer. 4 Truck Loads of pine-needle mulch. I hate the stuff with a passion.

    I actually like the retro decal packages for the new jeeps. They are too bland in stock décor for me, the retro decals add some character I think.

    New Alternator Solutions?

    Thanks for the tips. Since I don't plan on putting a winch on in the near future I went with a NAPA replacement alternator. It is what had been on the Jeep since '01 and was a 78 amp unit.

    New Alternator Solutions?

    This thread is a summary of Name That Noise from drivetrain. Turns out it was the alternator...making the noise I described below: Original post: So the Scrambler has thrown me a curve ball over the last month or so. It started making a noise that sounds like a medium-pitched humming or whine...
