    My '81 Scrambler tried to kill me...

    I noticed some stress cracks on the frame a couple of weeks ago. Decided to keep my eye on them to see if they got worse. Pulled in the driveway this afternoon, got out and was excited to start installing my hard doors and top when I noticed this. I feel very lucky to be writing this from the...

    How to install an ACME top?

    Hey Y’all, I have an ‘81 Scrambler that came with a soft top. I recently bought an ACME hard top and doors. I really like the top because it has a sun roof! First I’m not sure if this was originally made for an 8 or not. It came off a 7 but has the right dimensions for an 8. The only thing...

    4 cyl iron Duke to 6 cyl swap?

    Hey all, I’ve been enjoying driving my ‘81 Scrambler for several months now. My only real complaint with it (at this time) is that I have a significant elevation change in my drive home. About a 2,000’ climb. Going to work I can manage 65 mph all day long...dropping 2,000’. Haha. But the climb...

    Cragar SS?

    Anyone ever put Cragar SS wheels on a Scrambler? I'm wondering how it would look. I do like the look of them on some pickups.

    Vacuum/carburetor help needed '81 2.5 Iron Duke

    Hey y'all, Trying to get my little 4 cylinder Iron Duke to run better and idle. I installed a rebuilt carburetor on it and it still won't idle 'cold'. 55 degrees here today. One thing I'm not certain is that I either have all the vacuum lines, or if I do that they are connected in the right...

    Finally bought a scrambler. '81 Iron Duke

    Currently own a '77 CJ5 and have enjoyed the heck out of it for the last 1.5 years. But I needed more leg room and more room for tools, coolers and such while out on the trails of west Texas. I've looked at almost every ad on CL, FB and any other place I could think of to find an 8 over the...

    Jeep frames/engines

    I have always assumed that same year and model Jeeps were made with the same frames and then had different size engines put in them. As an example, the CJ5 I own came with a factory V8 304, so I assumed that frame is the same as a CJ5 that came with an inline 6. A friend of mine is trying to...
