    Scout or Wagoneer 44's

    Scout axles were set with near 0 deg of caster from the factory. This makes for bad/darty handling on the street and even offroad at speed. Wagoneer's have caster like stock CJ's did or maybe a few more deg so they will handle much better. That is why people cut the inner c's off Scout axles...

    Does Poison Spyder ever have sales/deals?

    I've never seen them run a holiday special like others do. Their dealers may run specials though. Sam's Offroad out of Tulsa, OK had free shipping one time on PSC stuff so I bought my armor through them. They used to do a Christmas drawing through facebook. You had to do a bunch of stuff to...

    2019 Scrambler Owners Association - National Scramble - Hurricane, UT

    West Rim Trail was pretty and fun. Taken on two different cameras so somewhat out of order.

    Cj-8 Hot Wheels and Matchbox

    So much Awesome right there. I had stompers when I was little. Wish I still had them or could find some people are selling.

    Best power steering box

    I had read at one time a wagoneer box will bolt up in place of the CJ box. It's larger and variable ratio so get a little more power than a CJ version. Might be worth researching that further as you may be able to buy a remanned one or find one from a junk yard somewhere. You could also give...

    Show me Your Bump Stops

    Front is around 3” and rear is 4-5”. Bumps can compress about 1.25” made of rubber. I think they are energy suspension. 4-5” bump stop.

    Show me Your Bump Stops

    This is on a soa full width. May not help you. I made spacers between the stop and spring plate to adjust as needed.

    I think you will see a ton of this with the overland crowd. I saw some IG pics of one photo shopped with a patriot camper type rig replacing the bed on 40's similar to what you posted. Looked really good. Just rooftop tents etc on a bed rack will sell too. Rubicon model will have really good...

    JW Speaker LED headlight install

    Did you use them in the snow on your way back? Wondered if they get warm enough to melt, snow/ice off?

    AMC401 or LS

    sdsupilot said put a spreadsheet together. That is typically what I do and I had started working down that path.. I have been compiling a list of 401 and various LS options. There are other LS options like finding one on classified add, but I just went retail for now. I pasted a snapshot of...

    AMC401 or LS

    A sign to buy it or go LS. Kind of wonder why they would be selling a just rebuilt 401 to put an LS in....

    AMC401 or LS

    Summit wants $1085 per head for Edelbrock's. :oops: From what i have read on the interwebs AMC heads flow really well? I haven't had time yet to call people on what it costs to have them redone, but surely it can't cost $2170 for the pair even having them machined for studs to run rollers?

    AMC401 or LS

    This will probably be longer than I want it to be, but figure the back story is relevant. My Scrambler has gone from 151 Iron Duke, to a Buick 231, to an AMC304 over its life. The Buick to AMC304 I did because the SR4 transmission wouldn't stay in reverse and I was tired of it. I wanted to go...
