    Eating crow for supper

    There. I said it. I was wrong. In the past I have said that a Jeep to me is one you always have the top off. Therefore as cool as Postals and Overlanders are, I’d never own one. Then @Jambo has to come along and post one for sale and I realize it’s less than 8 hours away. Heck I drove 13 hrs...

    On a 84 CJ7 In the other builds section I have a thread on my Renegade I’m restoring back to almost stock. I have a slight twist to the ECU deletion mod that so many of us do. In the extreme off chance that I or a future owner would want to go back 100% stock I’d like to keep all wiring...

    Power steering box for 35s

    its time to replace the original steering box on my Scrambler. I searched and read through various threads and still didn't get a firm understanding of everyone's experiences.
