    Cj-8 not worth buying?

    I would like to see what the author of that article drives? I would prob rather have my fingers slammed in it's door than drive it to work.

    That other forum? Jeep CJ

    I'm a member on JEEPZ, it's really gotten away from CJ's. Pretty much TJ and up on there.

    Attention

    I don't have any of their jack stands, do have an aluminum jack. Only thing I've used it on is my Ferris mower.

    Bolt location/sorting trick for disassembly

    I started doing this years ago when I would disassemble a Harley primary, pretty handy especially if something will be apart for a while waiting on parts. Love the bag and tag, recently replaced the dash in my 91 Chevy truck. Their was a boat load of screws, clips, etc and I wanted it all to...

    AMC 304

    Jim, that motor looks great the only thing I would change is the Fram filter. I put one on my 304 when I first got it and lost 10 PSI over a WIX. I don't know if their was an issue with that particular filter but I had read several threads on other forums that WIX was the filter to run on AMC...

    AMC 304

    I would recommend running a Wix oil filter and a Cloyes dual row true roller timing chain. AMC V8's don't oil well in the timing area, the true roller chain style helps. I soaked mine in a container of Lucas for a few days to penetrate the rollers and pre-lube the chain before installation. If...

    What parts from other AMC's also fit Scramblers?

    I read somewhere that the radio was the same on one of the cars, don't hold me to this but I was thinking it might have been a Spirit but I can't confirm this. I know the CJ radios have to be kinda thin due to the close fit of the gauges above them. If nothing else the knobs and face plate may...

    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 agree, often I see people ask " where can I get this or that"? I always want to say well it's a crapshoot, good luck!

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

    Exactly, how much time would I have been waiting needlessly when all it would have took was an email. If they didn't have it in stock and told me up front I would have respected that.

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

    I'll be honest, I'm old school, I hate ordering stuff online but I know it's a must sometimes whether it be because of availability, selection or saving money. A lot of these parts new are a gamble when it comes to quality also.

    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

    The first Commando I almost bought was a trade in on a car lot I worked at when I was a teen back in the 80's. I want to say it was a '71 with a V6 and a 4speed. I drove it to lunch one day and loved it. I was into Toyota 4x4's at the time, didn't know anything about Jeeps or Commando's. I...

    Yea I'm into old Jeeps

    I always wanted a commando, I've come close to owning one twice. Right before I bought my Scrambler I just missed getting a one owner with very little rust for 3 grand. I had the cash but a guy had gave a deposit right before I showed up. Oh well, guess it wasn't meant to be. It's on my...

    Yea I'm into old Jeeps

    He said the Vette is in a barn but you can't tell it's even there their is so much stuff packed around it. Said he had been it a couple of times and didn't realize their was a Vette in there. It had never been mentioned or anything. I wish I still had the other pics, their was a bunch of...

    Yea I'm into old Jeeps

    After my jaw dropped, I inquired about buying these old Jeeps. He said, " I really doubt he would sell anything, he's kind of a private guy". Next time we discussed it he said no he would not sell anything. I said the white one appears to be a Hurst Edition, it was really rare. He said he had 3...

    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...
