I've spoken with him on the phone and he has a homegrown website for his tops. I wont list the website because he's not a supporting member yet but I...

    Parking brake cable comes up short so

    As most folks find out when they go to a 4 inch lift the left side parking cable comes up short with the spring at full extension. I searched and couldn't find an existing solution that kept the oem integrity of the system. I thought about making a bracket to lower the cable but really all...

    Scrambler sighted in Disney

    On vacation this week and while at Disneys Animal Kingdom I spotted a Scrambler. It was kinda Goofy :crazy: It was pulling two trailers in low gear and a character was on top of the second one. It looks like they opened up the rear wheel opening and used a cj-7 flare. You can see the...

    AMC 20 3:55 gears, worth the effort??

    I'm scrapping out the axles from my old 81 scrambler. It had the narrow AMC 20/Dana 30 with 3:55 gears. I'm keeping the driveshafts as spares because my newer scrambler has the same narrow axles. Are the 3:55 worth trying to sell? I've removed the ring and pinion gears from the diff and have...

    Color selection for the Scrambler

    Hello to all, I'm a newer member here on the forum but I've owned my late Scrambler since 1990. It was an 81. I say was because a few months ago I had to make the obvious decision and send her to Jeep heaven. As I get all the pics loaded up I'll start a new thread over in the Restoration...

    Am I missing something here??

    I'm replacing the tining chain cover on my 360 with a new one. I'm in the process of moving over the oil pump housing and I noticed there seems to be a couple missing pieces. The oil filter bypass valve assy is not there, and never has been. So I've been riding around in total bypass all these...
