    My 85' Restoration

    Yeah, before we even begun removing the paint, we knew that it cracked there. Can you shoot me a couple pictures of the reinforcement that you added into it? Thanks for the heads up!

    My 85' Restoration

    Sometime in July I should be ready to post up for sale the original rolling chassis minus the Tcase and wheels and tires. Other than a leaky valve cover, the motor ran great and the frame is in good shape. I really have no idea if it’s better to sell it as a whole or part it out.

    My 85' Restoration

    The tub has a few bad rust spots and should be coming off the frame in June some time. It will get walnut blasted, that will really show what we are working with. Hopefully they will just be the couple of small repairs that we have found so far.

    My 85' Restoration

    The fusion axles, psc steering, gentech gas tank, Alcan springs and a bunch of other parts are in. We should be able to set up a rolling chassis in the next couple of weeks.

    My 85' Restoration

    I need to do a better job updating this thread. We are making progress, slowly. Most of the body panels with exception on the tub have been removed, dipped, and epoxy primed. They have all been in surprisingly good shape.

    My 85' Restoration

    After years of planning, dreaming and saving the restoration and build of my Scrambler started today. My CJ-8 was the first car I bought when I was 19 and have been lucky enough to hold onto it. In 1997, I had wanted a Jeep CJ and preferably a scrambler since I was a little kid and...

    Erik Miller in the Gladiator has been doing great in the Stock class today. As high as third place in his class, last time they listed him. He's in the rocks now. It's amazing how well that long wheel base is working in there.

    cj 8 frame repair

    I may in a few months. My restoration on my 8 is slowly beginning. The frame is in good condition, but the direction that the build has taken me, I have ordered and will be receiving a new TDK frame in the next couple of weeks. The old frame won't be ready for sale until March or April once...

    JKU lift kits

    I completely agree with supporting Michigan companies, But I would personally recommend EVO, their kits start at 3". Made in the USA and extremely high quality, that's what's under my JKU now. I have run AEV, they built my JKU originally, and was happy with theirs. I have heard that BDS runs a...
