    Let’s talk windshield frames

    Is it repairable? Is it an original frame? Toy box Jeeps in Daytona or JeepSalvage in Statesboro Ga may have something.

    A999 Trans problem

    Did the trans fluid have any air in it? Have a Chevy blazer, trans filter developed a slight crack hardly perceptible to the eye and sucked air and transmission slipped. I didn’t have any glug glug glug though. That may mean something else. Transmission shop replaced the filter and fluid. That...

    Reasons to buy a CJ8

    What about an ‘04-‘06 TJ Unlimited? 2 door long wheelbase. Limited production years. Kinda like a Scrambler. Always thought they are the next collectible Jeep and should increase in value over time. We passed on a red, loaded Florida non-Rubicon for $15,000 3 years ago. They should be in your...

    Replacing corners, tailgate gaps

    I’m no expert. Start with that. Are the brackets secure on the rear quarter panels like bracket picture three? Maybe put a ratchet strap across the back and pull the quarter panels together? Maybe jack and 4x4 lifting quarter up? Shims? Not sure that would keep them from returning to their...

    Another Scrambler Purchase/Road Trip - UPDATE- BODY ON FRAME AGAIN

    I agree with Randyzzz. Contact phoenix graphics see if they can provide you with samples of three colors. Any competent autobody paint supply store should be able to color match exactly, in spray cans. Get can of clear. Hopefully paint doesn’t lift black paint or affect powder coating, if it...

    Starter switch? Issue

    I would check the battery. 10 Volts May not be enough to start it. Can you jump start it?

    Restoring color to interior door panels

    SEM is the way to go. Prep is key, though. Follow their instructions for their system. They are detailed. Autobody paint supply store should be able to do exact color match in a spray can, assuming you have a color code, or you can take door panel in to store.

    Origin of the name “Scrambler”

    Haven’t seen this answered before. Anyone know how AMC came up with the name ”Scrambler”?

    Front Fenders/Firewall Attachment

    We have a store here called Skycraft; sells surplus items. I bought a 3M product, probably same as referenced earlier. Mine came in”beads” you pulled apart and applied. Looked like the material we use to plug tires although not same product. Very sticky and rubbery, about an inch wide when...

    Left Rear Wheel Well Harness Protector

    Jay Newsome at Jeep Salvage in Statesboro Ga. may have one if he’s still in business. You can google his name. Has (or had) a large Jeep yard.

    Decals for the DIY'er?

    I did mine too, first time. Had a second pair of hands. Used a good quality spray bottle with dishwashing soap or special decal soap, fresh razor blades, a new needle, and a squeegee. Did the same set including hood decal. Went well. Ran the rear decal up the body line. Press the razor...
