    What's on your Work Bench?

    Console installed. I like how it came out and the color match is pretty close.

    100 questions

    Everything will bolt up. The wide track frame used a different upper shock tower for the front shocks. Hopefully you got the towers with the frame, if not they’re not that hard to find. You will need a bit longer front shock if you’re using the narrow track axle’s lower spring plate mount and...

    I dunno…are you familiar with “Red Green”?🤣

    What's on your Work Bench?

    I got tired of the non-functional center console in my 96 Silverado. So I built a new one. Needed practice for the Scrambler, right? It houses an 8” down firing sub, and a hidden lock box. 3/4” MDF, marine vinyl, and auto carpet dyed blue to match the floor. Still need to add the front cup...

    What's on your Work Bench?

    I think the F8 Green is “the best” green ever. I was going to paint Red that color until I saw a guy in town was painting his Scrambler that color. Love it!

    Stolen Scrambler - and how to Prevent!

    This reminds me of a funny…I used to work at a Dodge dealer. One of the advisors had a ratty old 68 Bronco. He used to come in late and park in one of the tech’s bays. Ticked the tech off big time, but the advisor kept doing it. Well, one day we got a few feet of bulk spark plug wire and ran it...

    Stolen Scrambler - and how to Prevent!

    Remove fuel pump relay. Tracking tile or similar. Hidden ignition disable switch. On a carb’d Jeep- fuel shutoff with an audible alarm on a delay. Just enough gas in the float bowl to get into the middle of the street and then all heck breaks loose. Unfortunately, if it’s a pro, and they want...

    Door hinges - oem vs aftermarket quality issue - GOT ANY?

    Here’s another opportunity for some high- end aftermarket parts. Think along the lines of the Crabtree shackle kits. Milled from a solid billet with bushings. Probably cost $500 for a full set but it would be worth it…

    The '83 - Family Man

    The potential lack of reliability of non-OEM setups is why I made the decision to use an OEM in-tank fuel module on both of my builds. Yes, I have an LS swap, but the GM fuel module setup is easily adaptable. We are putting a GM fuel module in my son-in-law’s 70 Bronco with a FiTech fuel system...

    To Undo or not to undo (a poorly done outboard spring setup)

    On Copper, I had the J10 axle set up spring under. I used the flat Astro pitman arm, and a shorty crossover steering arm on the pass knuckle. So the tie rods were attached like they would have been stock, and the drag link went form the top of the Astro arm to the bottom of the high steer arm...

    Door hinges - oem vs aftermarket quality issue - GOT ANY?

    Every set of factory CJ hinges I have ever owned were too small for those inserts.

    To Undo or not to undo (a poorly done outboard spring setup)

    The MORE steering box mount that moves the box forward 1.5” helps a lot on the pitman arm clearance. But then the power steering lines interfere with the crossmember. I used the Pure Choice Motorsports power steering banjo fittings to help with this. I still had to relieve the crossmember about...

    US Mags- Indy Wheels

    Those should fit just fine. The only time I had an issue was with the 81 disc brake hubs. Aftermarket mags rubbed on the caliper. My 81 currently has 82-up widetracks and every wheel I have tried has fit.

    To Undo or not to undo (a poorly done outboard spring setup)

    That’s what I forgot to mention in my first post. The wheels are awesome! Agree- the easiest path forward is to gusset it up, make sure all the welds are good, and swap in the Waggy axle. The Waggy axle is 6 Lug but you can swap out F150 outers to get 5 x 5 1/2. It looks like someone has tried...
