    Adding a third bow to a Scrambler Bestop Supertop

    Thought I'd do a writeup on how I added an additional bow to my Bestop Supertop. The bow that I used was a spare CJ-7 Whitco "front hoop" from a factory bow assembly but pretty much any bow should work. Got mine from Engbull on this forum. Look him up and shoot him a message. He said he had...

    Well, I have joined the unemployed.

    Last Wednesday, I was furloughed as a direct result of the Sequester we've all been hearing about in the news. Not a very fun thing to go through. Company paid me through the end of the week and will have full insurance coverage for 60 days. At the end of that 60 days, if the company has new...

    My brother-in-law needs to put a clutch in a '67 Jeepster Commando with the Buick V6. Any recommendations out there? Experience? Stock or upgrade.

    Neil Armstrong

    I'm a young guy compared to some here. I'm 32. Born in 1979. 10 years late you might say. I'd imagine many of you were alive in 1969 when Mr. Armstrong took that famous step and said those famous words. Where were you? Tell the younger generations here about that feeling. Make you proud to be...

    EMP proofing a Scrambler

    Here's a little discussion that I'm curious about: What would it take to EMP-proof a Jeep Scrambler? Perhaps for a bug-out vehicle. Solid state ignition, coil, battery, etc. What would need to be protected? I'm talking about a stock 8 with a 258 and very few accessories. Thoughts, discussion?
