    Bad wiper motor?

    They were working fine at the beginning of our trip. No wiggle at the pivot point. I’ll wait for it to clear up before breaking it down. Thinking maybe that burn smell was the motor taking a crap. I’m sure it’s the original one. But I’ll post an update when I figure out the culprit

    Bad wiper motor?

    While driving today in the rain, noticed the wipers were struggling going from left to right. But on the return, they worked smoothly. Noticed a drop in voltage when it would swing to the right, but returning the voltage shot up. After a while, they struggled to sweep to the right to the point...

    Same here. Where I live a lot of the parents buy their high school senior kids jk’s or I’ll see a soccer mom behind the wheel. My son and I usually play the game if there’s gonna be a return wave. My son is the young generation and at least he’s keeping the cj spirit alive. He’s only 19, but...

    My son found an old picture of me when I was in the army, back in the 80’s manscaping wasn’t a thing, and my unibrow was thick and woolly. He wants to make a unibrow grill for our scram

    Me and and son took our Jeeps to a Jeep clubs’ toys for tots meeting last week. All mall crawler jk’s. A few off road jk’s. All parked in a mall parking lot, about 75 Jeeps. Only one CJ-8 (mine) and a beat up off road Comanche. Only 3 people showed any interest in the cj. And two of them were...

    Welcome. That’s a nice looking jeep there. Doesn’t look like it needs much more work.

    Solid Axles for AMC 20

    When I bought mine, the previous owner did the single piece axle. The two piece axles, from what I’ve read, can fall out. Single axle removes that weak point. The axle tubes are thin and have been known to rotate from the housing, which is corrected by what Ron said above, do four 1” inch...

    Full Soft Top-Spice

    I inquired about a tonneau cover for my 85. Never heard back from them. I have a bestop full soft top, so I might head to the shore and check the canvas boat cover manufacturers. Maybe attach it to the same rail system bestop uses. So, until summer comes, it’ll be on the back burner. So when I...

    Gladiator

    I was reading in one of the magazines, maybe car n driver, that jeep and am general were teaming up to develop the gladiator as a military vehicle. I can see that happening. But as far as gladiators go, I’ve seen some around my way. Not many. Price tag is way above what I’d like to pay. I have...

    Scrambler or LJ

    We traced them they were good. Now it can finally go thru inspection. In jersey, they’re tough. Now he’s saving his money, and when we finish working on the 97 tj and sell that, he’s going all out on the 05. Doing a 3” long arm lift. Tummy tuck and the lengthening the track length by 5”. He saw...

    Scrambler or LJ

    My son has an ‘05 wrangler. Already replaced the OPDA. Was an easy swap, two bolts. Been working great since. The other big problem, and it’s the more expensive one is the computer. In ‘05 they consolidated the separate engine and trans computer into one central unit, right behind the battery...

    If I can’t make it, can my son bring my scrambler? He’s extremely stoked about going. Apparently he follows some of the Virginia scrambler crew on his insta.

    My son does the off roading. I just like easy trails. He wants to take the scram to the Bantamfest next year in butlerville. I’m sure been there. He’s itching to go. Me? I’m always busy. I might try to go to bantamfest. He always wanted to go to rausch. We know people who e gone there, they love it

    I loved the 80’s. The death of disco. Mustaches. And CJ’s. Enjoy the sales brochure. Dunno if anyone posted it. Too lazy to look to see if it was posted

    Radiator options

    I still have the stock 6 cylinder rad in mine that tries to cool a 360. Hot humid days in jersey make it even hottier. Driving it to the shore, that needle would be at the end of that white line. Another 1/8 of an inch to “H”. I was looking at that ecp rad. But now I’m waiting cuz when I was...
