    Another Scrambler Purchase/Road Trip - UPDATE- BODY ON FRAME AGAIN

    If you weld up the lower hinge brackets so that they are solid. It makes them easier to drill. I did that when I was putting JMU scrambler together.

    A gearing question for a street only scrambler.

    I run 3.54 in my daily scrambler and love it. It has a 258 Howell injection, T5, and 32" tires. I don't recall the rpm, but i don't believe its above 2000 at cruising speeds. I can set the cruise control on the interstate and it never has a problem pulling hills

    I run two sets of tires, a set for the street and a set for the trails. I had my bfg krawlwers on H2 rims, but I destroyed them last year at Rausch. So I have them on a set of raceline beadlocks now.

    So finished the Jeep last week and then straight to the trails this weekend. Went to AOAA in pa, about 30 minutes west of Rausch creek where nationals was supposed to be held. Great park! 8000 acres of trails. Jeep is now broken in with a few scuffs and scratches. Happy to report it did well.

    Well this sucked. Pulled old leaky steering box to put in a new one. Broke a capture but in the frame and found out the power line will not tighten down on the new box. had to cut the frame open from the side and weld in a new nut.

    Not sure who made them, I came across them years ago. I’ve been looking to another one for the spare but I’ve never found any others

    Accessory AND 'start' power source with Painless harness

    I used the coil wire to power the sniper more than once and have not had an issue. But I did not use that same wire for the ignition system. I upgraded the ignition to hei and used the 10 gauge wire that powered the ignition box on the driver fender to run the distributor.

    JMU Scrambler rebuild.

    I'm sorry, I don't follow what you are asking? "Power source"? I'm using a Walbro 255 inline fuel pump mounted to the side of the frame. It gets 12 volts power from the relay in the Holley sniper wiring harness. The Holley sniper wiring harness sends power to the relay from the battery in the...
