    What parts from other AMC's also fit Scramblers?

    Let's say your walking through a junkyard looking for Jeep parts. If I don't see much Jeep stuff but I happen up on a Gremlin or a Spirit, or a Concord or any other of the AMC cars, what are some parts that are essentially the same as Jeep parts? The drive train is a no brainer, just want to...

    What kind of feedback would you leave if you were me?

    I've been on a temporary layoff for 5 weeks now. I normally work a lot of hours so my projects usually don't progress along very fast. Having family and an old house, etc, Jeep time is further down on the priority list but I do enjoy it. With the layoff I have been able to really catch up on...

    Yea I'm into old Jeeps

    About 2yrs ago I was at my old job working with a new guy. He had seen me drive my Scrambler and CJ5 to work. One day he said, " So your into old Jeeps"? Yea, I guess you could say that. He said my father in law has a bunch of old Jeeps. So my interest was peaked. I question this guy a bit but...

    Any forum memebers in Spring City Tn?

    I was down there a few weeks ago buying a 4 wheeler. Saw a really nice Scrambler in someone's yard. Didn't get a pic, I was in a big hurry. Looked like it was a very capable machine. Appeared to be on ton axles, has a nice full custom cage.

    Will a 999 work with a 360?

    I have an '82 Scrambler, one of 400 automatics I believe I was told. I'm about to add 35's and the old 6cyl has been showing low oil pressure for a while. I've got a good 360 I've considered replacing the 6 with. Will the 360 bolt up to the factory automatic? Any issues I need to be aware...

    Tips on removing factory decals?

    Anyone have any tips on removing the factory decals? I plan on using a heat gun. These are the original decals, not worried about the paint. I was going to remove them before sending it to be media blasted.

    Was the Dana 44 an option in 82?

    I've owned an 82 Scrambler Laredo almost 3yrs now. I bought it from the original owner, I believe he told me he ordered it. It's a 6cyl automatic. I was under it the yesterday and was kind of shocked to notice it had a Dana 44 rear. I thought all CJ's got AMC 20's except for the 86's. The old...

    My 82 Scrambler needs a clip (I guess thats what you'd call it?) for one of the shifter rod linkages where it connects to the automatic trans. A while back I took it for a drive, stopped at an ATM, put it in park, when I went to leave and got on the HWY I noticed it was in L2 so I grabbed...
