    Steering issues, think my AGR box has crapped the bed

    I installed a Superbox 2 from AGR, along with an AGR pump about 10 years ago. Jeep probably only has 7-8K miles on it during that time. When to drive it the other day and the steering is hard to turn. Initially I thought "bad pump" but after watching everything to make sure there wasn't a...

    Non-Jeep people

    A while back I referred a newish Scrambler owner to this board. He posted up on FB and was looking for nutmeg seats, and I remembered that a member here was nice enough to GIVE away some extra parts that he wasn't using, among them, some nutmeg seats. I pointed him to that thread, and the...

    Talk to me about 1985 XJ's

    Local family has an 85 XJ for sale that runs and drives for $500. Looks like these early XJ's had a 2.8 V6 that didn't have a good reputation, and a 904 Automatic (possible CJ donor?) Pros and cons of the early XJ's. For that price for a running and driving 4x4 I'm tempted.

    Auburn Gear Ected....who has one?

    Just ALMOST ordered an Auburn Gear was for a 2.73 AMC20 so the price was right, and I like the idea of having an all time LSD with selectable locker out back. Anyhow, who's running one, and anything I should know before I buy it?

    Anyone running security cameras?

    Got two bikes stolen last night. One wasn't 10 feet away from me. Was watching "The Ice Pirates" with the kids, heard a noise that I assumed was my parents taking out their dog (next door). Few mins later mom knocks on the door, and when I let her in I noticed one bike on the ground (the...

    Jeep SE running boards?

    Are those SE running boards on this tan Scrambler? I remember seeing an '8 locally when I was a teenager with those diamond plate running boards on it. Dad always complained about the wide-tracs throwing mud down the side of the Jeep, and when I pointed those out he said the dealer had offered...

    CJLaredo's oil and volt gauges

    Anyone see these? Looks like CJLaredo is having them custom made in the US. Wonder how they stack up to OEM? Gotta be better than the Crown and Omix crap.

    Impact wrench

    Wife got me a compressor for our anniversary, so now I need a decent impact. I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible, but know you get what you pay for with tools. I'm a hobbyist so don't need a thousand ft lbs, but need to break loose the occasional stubborn bolt. Looking at this setup. Is...

    2.5" lift installed, now have a vibration

    Well, finally got the extra axles under my hunting Jeep. 2.5" Rancho springs with new shocks, and locked stock axles with 3.31's The ubolts came with aluminum shims for the springs, which I knew not to use, and after reading that with a 2.5" lift that shims usually weren't necessary, I opted...

    More one piece axle questions

    Keep in mind that I've been running these Superiors since 1998, but I had someone else install them for me, so this is the first time I've really dug into an axle. Put a lunchbox (Powertrax no-slip) in my extra AMC20 that I plan on swapping into the Scrambler probably next spring. Trying to...

    Wheel bearing grease

    What are y'all using on wheel bearings? I've got an AMC20 torn down now, fixing to tear into another one on the street Jeep. I've always used Marine grease on my ATV wheel bearings because I pretty much use them at lower speeds under water (they're boats with wheels). Timken wheel bearing...

    Rear AMC 20 yoke ujoint using Ubolts

    Bought a set of Widetracs with Lockrights in both ends and one piece axles already installed in the rear. Have them more or less installed but when I went to reattach the rear driveshaft, I discoverd the straps didn't work. No problem, prior owner obviously coverted them to Ubolts, so i...

    Working on an extra AMC 20 I have with the intention of putting it in the Scrambler at some point in the future. Plans are Powertrax No Slip, replace axle seals, grease bearings, and basically get it ready to put in. Have had a Powertrax No Slip for a few years sitting in a box in the parts...

    Crown headlight trim ring quality?

    Had the little retaining clip pop off one of my headlight trim rings. Anyone tried the Crown? I really hate to buy Crown stuff but when I look at something this simple I think maybe even they couldn't screw something like this up. Anyone used them...

    Power steering pump going south on me?

    Green Jeep has been sitting for a few weeks. Got stuck, wife over-revved it while I was pushing, motor mount was busted, so ended up with a radiator hose getting a hole sawed in in by the alternator. Good times!:laugh: Anyhow, new motor mount, while the rad was empty I figured it was a good...
