    Gonna probably regret it

    sold the 8 today. Tough decision, but just never used her. Went to a good friend who was the reason I got into Jeeps to start with. It's been a fun ride, but time to move onto something more practical that'll actually get used. Kinda feels like losing a part of the family. Got a lightly modified...

    I've come to a point where I think it's time to part ways with my Scrambler. I'm too broken to fix it any more, can't hardly get in it, and hasn't been driven on the road in a couple years now. I hate to say I'm actually considering this since I spent so many years waiting to find one, but it's...

    So, Me being Me, I for some odd reason can not leave things alone. I've got this hair brained idea(wife said it was) to take motor, trans and tcase out of the Cherokee I just got and put it into the Scrambler. Plain and simple, been done thousands of times, right? Great upgrade and fairly easy...

    Scramber pulls home a new to me toy:)

    Well I haven't used the 8 for much in the last 2 years, but when I get her out it's always a good time. Friday my wife needed the Suburban so I used the Scramble to tow my new toy 140ish miles home. Wasn't the fastest 140 mile trip but it sure was exciting!

    Any CJ5 experts here?

    A friend of mine is looking at a 65 CJ5 and I believe it may be a Tuxedo Park Mark IV by the vin, but I am by no means an expert. I've found some online but nothing I can be positive on. Here's a snapshot of the serial plate.

    Rocky Road Outfitters?

    Any one running their SOA kit on an 8? Since I put the V8 in mine and can only seem to find the fender headers my tires rub on the collectors, so the only option I have come up with is more lift plus I need a bit more clearance for the 36s anyways. Been doing some looking around and looks to be...
