    Seat belt options

    I’m getting an old and rusty scrambler up and running. I’m at the point of choosing seat belts. I have corbeau Baja jp seats and the stock roll bar. Can I use three point belts with these seats? Or do I need to install a harness bar and harnesses for the front seats?

    Where to Start?

    I just scrapped my iron duke. Had it up for free on a local 4x4 site for a month and not a single taker. I think the scrap yard gave me $30?

    Rubicon Express 4.5 Lift Install Question

    OK. Reviving this thread with an update... I have the lift installed and have taken measurements, which are: Rear - 35" in length - Pinion yoke face angle - 8* - Transfer case yoke face angle - 7.9* - Shaft angle (top of yoke to top of yoke) - 20* Front - 31.5" in length I shared these...

    An update, could use some prayers.

    Randyzzz, I don't know you and I'm pretty new to this board, so apologies to you and the other board members if any of what I'm about to offer up is out of line. (FWIW, my mom is dealing with dementia too, so I can relate to your situation). • Read the book "Being Mortal" by Atul Gawande. He's...

    Rubicon Express 4.5 Lift Install Question

    Thanks for the explanation, BigWalton. They are the conversion shackles. I'll have to check into the YJ spring hanger swap.

    Rubicon Express 4.5 Lift Install Question

    Haven't installed this yet (work is busy), but I have a wild idea that I wanted to run by you guys. I have swapped in an AMC304 and will likely run and 8274 winch. I'm worried that the front will squat. What if I swapped the spring packs - 6 springs up front and 5 springs in the rear. Do you...

    Rubicon Express 4.5 Lift Install Question

    Not yet. I got wrapped up in getting the steering box swapped out (going from manual to power). Now I'm traveling for work for a couple of weeks. If you're thinking of buying the RE lift kit, do it before the end of October. They're running a promotion and you can save about 10% on the price.

    Rubicon Express 4.5 Lift Install Question

    I'm about to install the RE 4.5 lift on my CJ8. I seem to recall reading somewhere (maybe on this forum) that the transfer case drop is unnecessary for scramblers due to the length of the drivetrain. Any thoughts or advice on this before I get started?

    Drivetrain Measurements and Drive Shaft Lengths

    Thanks, FLCJ8, for taking those measurements. I forgot to post the "as it sits", "before moving the drivetrain back an inch" measurements between the yoke faces: Front: 28 1/4 Rear: 37 3/8 I'm starting to think that it might be easier just to buy new custom shafts, especially since I don't...

    Drivetrain Measurements and Drive Shaft Lengths

    Ok. Pulled the shafts today. The collapsed driveshafts measure from outside of yoke ear to outside of yoke ear (basically end to end) • front - 28 3/4 in. • rear - 37 1/2 in.
