    What's the opposite of a Jeep graveyard?

    Well, maybe a museum, or a few of your driveways . . . But, there is also this. While I do about 90% of the work on my Scrambler myself, I do have occasion to bring it to Bill at SVE Performance in New Haven, CT. I can't say enough good things about him. He only works on Jeeps, and anything...

    Floor pan project last weekend and question

    looks good. I'd seam seam seal it for sure. Then use a good chassis paint on the bottom While pricey, I've been using Chassis Saver on my frame and underbody. Follow the directions and it's really tough and converts rust.

    Number of members? number of Scramblers?

    I can't vouch for Dennis Collins, of course, but on a coffee walk I just watched where he showed 3 Scramblers in the shop (cool), he said nearly 11,000 Scramblers had been through his shop. Its hard for me to believe that more than 1/3 of all Scramblers had been at his place at one time or...

    Not a Scrambler, but almost

    So, I live in Connecticut, and a lot of New Yorkers have come up here lately, for some obvious reasons. :censored: So, a few streets from me is a smaller house that I used to see a G-wagon with NY plates on, only ever on the weekends. Obviously lots of money going on there. But since this all...

    Bolt location/sorting trick for disassembly

    I do this often. Its also a great way to spraypaint the bolt heads if thats part of the plan.

    My new lift!

    There's a lot more room under there then you might think. Probably can't do my transfer case, or transmission stuff, but springs, axles, steering, and most of the back, like the gas tank and other stuff, is all readily accessible. I can even get to the oil drain plug. Just need to rig a little...

    My new lift!

    So, After much research, too much time on my hands, still working and getting paid :bacon:, a 48-year old body, and refusing to actually look at my 401k, this happened: I'm pretty psyched. Had to do a jackshaft door opener, but as you can see, my garage has crazy high ceilings. So, yea...

    Scrambler photo contest

    Ok. I think I only got stuck because I took off my SOA trail flag so I would not lose it . . .

    2020 Scrambler Owner Association - National Scramble - Rausch Creek, Pine Grove PA

    I just paid. Used PayPal in case it gets cancelled. I figured that easier to refund. Quick question. Are we CBs or GMRS for the event? I still CB, but I'm happy to have an excuse to buy a gmrs radio.

    What about payment stuff? I was about to pay, then this. If we pay, and it's cancelled, I assume we will be refunded. I was thinking about using PayPal fro this reason, event though its a few bucks more. Thoughts?

    Semi-Custom bed mat

    So, after restoring my bed to factory, I knew I wanted some kind of protection. One day, in the distant future, when the body is all done, I may do Raptor or other bed liner, but in reality, for now anyway, I wanted a bed mat. I wanted strong rubber, but it had to have holes for drainage. I...
