    Not sure this is the right forum but here goes anyway. My speedo quit working, I assumed it the cable and dig out my replacement cable and start to fix it. the old cabe is fine, I tak eboth ends loose and if I spin one end the other follows suit so I think bingo, except for the blood Im golden...

    Front Axle upgrade

    I think I might want to upgrade the front axle so I can change to a lower gear ratio and still have adequate tooth engagement. I currently have a Scout II rear D44 and intuitively it seems the mate to that would be my best choice but I understand Scouts have some funky alignment specs up front...

    OK all, My 82 258 with a 4.0 head and MOPAR EFI conversion is knocking, the local shop thinks its a wrist pin but regaardless I need to address the 258 portion of the engine. Seems my options are to simply buy a rebuilt 258 and swap the head and EFI and put it in. Probably easiest but not...

    LED headlights

    Some time ago I swapped in some headlights that use a replacable halogen bulb, they helped but are still suboptimal at times. I saw a YJ with a similar set up but the halogen bulbs were swapped for LEDs. The owner raved about them but then dont we all rave about our upgrades? My question is do...

    Help me understand

    this is totally irrelevant and is just something that Ive been trying to understand. How do we value Jeeps? When is a given price ridiculous for one jeep when another that SEEMS comparable or even to be less, is a steal? Ive beeen spending alot of time at my mom's about 300 miles away due to...

So, did I ruin my speedo head and I need...

    New steering column

    The pice that ties the column lock to the rod to the actual switch has broken in my column, other than that its still nice and tight, its a tilt and is solid. I know I could tear it all down and rebuild it myself probably, its been this way better than a year though so Im not seeing it happening...

    stock roll bar value

    I wasnt sure where to post this so apologies if I chose wrong. I got a rather cryptic email from a friend wanting to know if I knew anyone who wanted a "a lady asked us if we knew anyone who needed a full factory (?) rollbar for a CJ-8. " , when I asked for info I got "She said it was a whole...

    door latches dont

    I swapped on my hard half doors for spring/summer and my passenger side door wont latch now, most of the time. sometimes it does, every time it will latch, pop halfway loose and then may, or may not, completely release the first bump, or upon any movement at all. I've looked at adjustments and...

    Go Pro?

    Does anyone have a go pro camera on their Jeep? I found one on craigs last night that hasnt been used and is a decent price. I'm wondering, though, if id use it and if I even could use it for other video opportunities. I dont have a video camera and I often think Id like one but I'm not sure I...

    Has anyone seen a Scrambler with a topper on the back? I'm thinking of looking into having an aluminum shell made to enclose the bed for longer wheeling/camping trips. It would have been nice to have had last month when we did the Mojave road/preserve and Death Valley and even nicer last spring...

I'm running the MOPAR EFI on an other wise stock 258 with the 4.0 head and have thought about putting the pump into the tank to help with occasional vapor lock. Ive heard that a 4.0 YJ pump assembly can be snaked into a stock tank but I...
