    More brakes??

    O.K. I blew a seal on my right front caliper. No big deal they cost $15. Well little did I know that scrambler brakes are different than CJ7's??? I thought that a CJ7 and a scrambler were the same from the doors forward? Advance auto shows different calipers on a scrambler than a 7 and in fact...

    My girlfriend's gotta go

    :( My wife told me yesterday the 'your girlfriend (her name for my jeep) is sucking the life out of our marrage.' She wants me to sell my nearly complete (about $3000 left to go) 81 -8. I'm not sure what to do. I thought about hiding it in the back yard for a while to let things calm down but...

    :mad: I was out driving today just like every day in my DD 81 scrambler when I noticed the rear leaf spring eye has completely busted off! What the heck is up with that! I never do any extreme wheeling just an occasional logging trail durring hunting season. The rest is 100% highway. I guess...

    I bought a gallon do it your self kit of Herculiner at Menards for $80 last summer but never used it. Every one here keeps saying it will fade. So, since I am going to have it sprayed which product should I go with that will stay black. I plan to remove the roll bar before the spray. I'm going...

    Over head console?

    Any of you guys ever hear of an over head console that will mount inside the half hard top? I want to continue to use it, but I'm not too interested in installing a cage or other spreaders to the roll bar to mount the tuffy one.

    Air Seat????

    A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I drove trucks in the army. One of the rigs I was lucky enough to tool around in had an air ride seat. This was great for making the ride much much softer. Does any one know where I can get one of these seats for my jeep?

    New side rails. (home built 101)

    Check out these side boards. 1x6 oak with a simple rounded edge and lots of polyurithane. The real trick was the rear mounting brackets. I got a piece of 1" flat steel and bent it into a z shape. The steel won't rot away like to original wood does and looks much nicer.

    Brake Light Woe's

    I spent the day shaving my -8's butt by removing all of the old swing out carrier and stop and by replacing the tail lights with the very cool oval LED's. I have to say the ol' jeep never looked better. The only problem is that I have no idea how to correctly wire a two wire with ground LED...

    TJ flares?

    Any body put TJ flares on your -8? My rear wheel wells are rusted out. I don't want to go through the trouble of replacing the bed sides and am considering new flares. I know the front ones look cool and should bolt up, but what is involved with adding them to the rear? Any help would be good.:p

    Bad fuel and temp guage

    I've read a few posts in here and you guys all say that the fuel guage and the temp guage work together and if 1 goes out the other usually does too. Why is that and what do I need to do to fix it?:confused:

    Death Wabble!

    I just put new tires on my scrambler and picked up a death wabble. I went from 31's up to 33's and had them ballanced. What would cause this? I didn't have it before the new tires, but did immediately after having them installed. It kicks in at about 65MPH and just shakes the heck out of the...

    What number is my Scram?

    I just bought an '81 scrambler. Since there were only a little over 8k of these built in '81, I was wondering which one was mine. Where do I go to get information regarding the manufacture of my jeep? I would like to know the cool stuff like what options it sold with and for what amount.:)
