    Weather strip kits

    I got my weather stripping for my doors from quadratec, the Fairchild industries set ( ) I’ve never had a hardtop on the Jeep so I can’t say how well they’ll seal to that, but they work just fine with my kayline soft top. They do seem to be a...

    Win A Scrambler

    Do you have to be a member of the bantam Jeep association to participate? I read the rules and that’s what I gather from them

    NM to FL '85 CJ8 Renegade take 2

    Just realized I never posted up the engine pulling/empty engine bay. It was my fathers first time pulling an engine and he was excited, he loves this Jeep just as much as I do.

    NM to FL '85 CJ8 Renegade take 2

    Minor update, and I know it means nothing without pics, but we were able to get the Toyota to start up today. I dropped it off at a buddy’s shop so he can evaluate it further as I have to head back to work in a different state. Progress is progress even if it’s slow, and that engine will power...

    NM to FL '85 CJ8 Renegade take 2

    In other good news, a 98 TJ has been added to my small Jeep family, I don’t know much about wranglers, but I love it already. I traded my 05 Nissan Frontier for it, and it’s now my daily. It’s on - 4.5” lift, 35x12.5 tires, with auto lockers in the front and rear.

    Special Package CJ's

    I’m not sure if this qualifies as a special edition, but this is my father’s 1985 CJ7 that he got in 1989 (before it became a total rust bucket), I’ve never seen these decals on another Jeep, possibly a dealer installed set? It also has a step/hitch bumper with the dealers name and town stamped...
