    Scrambler on a JK Unlimited Frame Build?

    Anyone thought of putting a Scrambler body on a JK Unlimited Frame? I have a JK Unlimited and a Scrambler. Lately I have been thinking about doing a coil conversion on the Scrambler. Looking at my JK parked next to my Scrambler made me start thinking about the body swap. At this point, I...

    SOA suspension 12 years later. What is better now?

    So my Scrambler build is 12 years old now. Spent the weekend wheeling with my daughters. Most of the other Jeeps were JKs and TJs. My Scrambler was the tallest Jeep there by a couple of inches. Most were running 35" tires like mine. It occurred to me that my Jeep might wheel better a few...

    Fuel filler and vent hose replacements?

    Does anyone make molded replacement hoses for the fill and vent on the fuel filler neck? After 31 years, mine have started leaking. I just installed a new poly 15 gallon gas tank from MTS. It is very nice, fits perfectly, and is made in USA. Does anyone know the hose sizes if molded versions...

    How do you know when it is time to sell your Scrambler?

    I've been away for a while. I've neglected my Scrambler. It has been more than 10 years since I got my Scrambler. It started out as two disassembled Scramblers that I drove all the way to Cabool, Missouri(700+ miles) to pick up. I did a frame off restoration including an axle swap and custom...

    Insurance options for Scramblers? Hagerty said "No"....

    I am trying to lower my insurance costs. Since I don't put many mile on my Scrambler each year I tried to get a classic car policy from Hagerty. I also have a couple of older Firebirds that I am getting similar policies for. Hagerty denied coverage on the Scrambler when they saw pictures that...

    Auto Trans Upgrades. Who has installed a shift/reprogram kit?

    I put a reprogram kit in my TF727 this weekend. I wasn't able to install all of the kit parts while the trans was still in my Scrambler. Has anyone rebuilt a TF727? Can you remove the rear band adjuster pivot with the tranny in the vehicle? It looks like the pivot pin has to be knocked out...

    Auto tranny Torque converter never disengages. Idle set too high??

    Anyone know what the factory idle setting was for a Grand Wagoneer with 360/TF727. I recently realized that the torque converter never disengages on my Scrambler's TF727. The Howell TBI setup idles around 700 rpm. Is this too high? Any suggestions on getting the torque converter to let...

    Is my Scrambler too nice to modify?

    Here is my dilemna. I would really like to start wheeling again this year. I only went out once or twice last year and that was with the family so we kept it pretty tame. I bought a JK Rubicon just for that reason, so we could all 5 be together. However, this has cut into my need for more...

    This is a sensor in my intake manifold. I believe it is in the coolant, but it is not the temp gauge sensor. What is it for? I would like to replace it with a temp sensor for my new electric fan setup. Thanks,
