    What shocks are you using

    The 8 is an 81 which drove my thinking that it was a narrow track. PO or AMC decided otherwise. So I have the shock towers and axle attachments. The lift is 2.5". I like Bilsein just concerned about travel length.

    What shocks are you using

    Have the OME 2.5" conversion. And am starting to look around for shocks. Nothing modified other than different leaf springs with wide track platform. Don't really know what to expect with length of travel, which is the reason for the question.

    One Man Tub Removal

    Like to use ratchet straps, not the cheap ones, in four corners. Picks it straight up and very manageable with one person.

    Floor pan project last weekend and question

    Seam seal as well. Bed liner paint can be mixed to match color and with the seam sealer does a good job at making the repair blend in.

    86 CJ7 - 4Cylinder - T5 Transmission Problems

    For under a grand you can find a 90's wrangler complete and running. That is the best way that I know of for a 4.0/AX swap. Depending on the year and how good you are at the wiring stuff, You can go OBD1: pretty easy or OBD2: Little more involved...either way having a complete rig to use is...

    Frame repair

    Easy way is to buy the rear one and cut it to fit. Can also have a metal shop bend up a piece without too much difficulty.

    Help with OME Springs and Bushings

    Wondering what you came up with to resolve this. Don't like the yellow OME bushings either, so I plan on using factory bushings in the OME's that I have. All of that is on hold for the moment.....just to nice out to be in.

    Number of members? number of Scramblers?

    Maine doesn't require a title on 20 plus year old vehicles. Just a bill of sale. If you want to reestablish a title you need to put in the paper work to the DMV; little money later you have a title. Requires work on your part and the rules are slowly getting more restrictive as time goes by.

    Number of members? number of Scramblers?

    Know of two more field Scramblers in my neck of the woods. They have been sitting out there for as long as I can remember.
