    Freak of nature...

    It's small, but would you eat it, toss it back, or donate it to an Aquarium?

    Curent pics, lets see em y'all!

    While my scrambler sits in the garage this Winter patiently awaiting my attention for a couple of projects, I was asked by Jims Chop Shop to post some current pics. The 8 went through a couple of minor changes this year, most notably the front fenders. Started out with YJ fenders running TJ...

    Have you seen one of these?

    This CJ-7 was at the Great American Jeep Rally in CT this past weekend. Driver said it was original with 30K miles. He bought it from the original owner, and hasn't changed anything. Laredo seats, full carpet, but no tach or clock. What you can't see in this pic is the graphic on the hood, some...

    Clutch MC question

    Second clutch master has gone bad in my Scrambler is 2 years. (leaking from the firewall side into the cab) Both were bought at the local Napa. Is there a better brand I should be looking for?

    NV4500... To upgrade or not? That is the question.

    I've done 2 of these swaps, both Scramblers had 1" body lifts, and both used the original skid, both were autos (more on the current one in a minute) The first one went fairly smooth, I didn't clock the 300, and I had to lower the skid 1". I had to shorten the rear DS and lengthen the front as...

    Extreme 4X4, Spet 22

    Did anyone see the Scrambler in the begining of the show? It was mine, back when it was owned by KohlDad. Pretty cool.

    Playing on a ramp...

    36" Iroks, clearence comes via YJ fenders on the front with TJ flares all around. Checking tire clearence... Rear is fine. Front is real close.

    TJ flares are on...

    YJ fenders, a little nip/tuck in the rear and 7" TJ flares. Plenty of room for the 36s now.

    TJ flares

    I've done a search and found some old threads covering this topic. Wondering though, has anyone installed TJ flares recently? I have questions... For the rear install, the inner fender on the 8 is smaller than a 7. How is this solved? (trim bottom of flare?) For the front, best way to have...

    Hyd clutch bleeding

    So we pulled the auto trans out of the Scrambler and installed an NV4500. Using a hydraulic clutch setup with an external slave. We're having some trouble bleeding the hydraulic clutch. Can anyone tell me the proper procedure for doing this. Should the piston in the slave be pushed all the way...

    Brake light issue

    No brake lights after R&R steering column. Power going into the switch, power coming out of the switch when pedal is depressed. There are two wires going into the switch and two wires coming out, the extra wires end at a brown connector, not connected to anything. Not sure if I disconnected...

    Very warm

    We have had a cold and wet spring this year so today was the first nice day (85 and sunny) I've had the Jeep out. Around town no warmer than 195, out on the highway...almost 210. Here's what I've done as far as the cooling system: Radiator has been boiled clean. 185 T-stat. Electric fans set...
