    Fuel Tank vent lines and all that goes with it?

    1984 w/4.0 ( I think from a 98 Grand Cherokee but that is a question/topic for another thread) & 20 gal tank. All done before I got the jeep so quality of installation and correctness is an unknown. With this extra stay at home time I have lately I started getting the jeep ready for the warm...

    Local Cars and Coffee and 5 CJ8s!

    So it could be my imagination, or maybe just wishful thinking, but for a while now it has seemed to me like we had a pretty good amount of 8s here in our little corner of NC. My fellow jeep addicts and I would snap pics and text each other about these different Scramblers in town but we seemed...

    Still looking for rack ideas

    I had asked about this a couple of years ago but never did anything about it. Just did a search and still don't see anything new so I thought I would repost and see what you all are doing or if you have any new ideas. Mainly want a rack to carry surfboards/paddleboards. they aren't that heavy...

    Front wheel clearance issue

    I'm in the process of getting my 1984 8 back together after a facelift. Finally found a wheel I like, color is right, price was right, size I wanted, I was pretty excited. Had the tires mounted yesterday and went to install. It appears that the inside of the wheel is a little different shape...

    Preserve/ refresh Dash panel?

    Putting the pieces parts back on the 8 after getting my new floors/etc. was cleaning off the dash panel and wondering if there is anthing special I should do to the back ( unseen ) part? The panel itself is in good shape, no rips or tears so I figure I can use protectant on it to bring it back a...

    Flare from where?

    I know this has been gone over before but in case there was any new info I thought I would ask. My 8 has been getting freshened up. It is pretty much done and I am in the process of putting on all the little things now. Since the paint is pretty it makes all my older parts look terrible and I...

    Ford Wagon Wheels fit?

    Nearing the end of the makeover on my 8. ( yes, pics will be up soon :bacon: ) Wanting to keep an old school look with the wheels without spending a fortune. Found a set of what I am told are; 15 x 8 Ford wagon wheels form an "older" F150. Have rings and caps too. Any idea if they will fit or...

    Scrambler Sighting. Is anyone on vacation in Carolina Beach?

    Was running around yesterday and saw an orange( I think) scrambler with black, non stock decals on the hood. Looked good. Was going the other way so I couldn't check it out as good as I wanted to. Just wondering if it was anyone here. When the heat and humidity drop a little I may have to try...

    CJ8 Picture Challenge.

    This may be too similar to the “Where have you driven your Scrambler lately” thread but...I am on another forum and they have this. Some of you may recognize it. I am shamelessly borrowing the idea because I thought would be cool to try here since everyone enjoys jeeps, driving jeeps, taking...

    What to do with original computer/module?

    Not sure if I posterd this in the right spot, but it is about original equipment so..... When I bought my 8 it already had a 4.0 swapped in. I am in the process of getting the tub done so I removed everything and this was still under the dash. Not connected to anything and I will not need it...

    New to me LJ....... & LJs? How many of us are there?

    Not sure where to post this, non Scrambler tho so figured this may be it......... I recently picked up a 06 LJ. Like most things I find, it needs a little work. Searched around and found some LJ forums. You all must have me spoiled here because it seems like some of the other forums just don't...

    Replacement 3pt seatbelts. ?

    Morning, My 8 is getting freshened up a little and I need to replace my belts. Have the 3 points. Need some other things as well and was building an order. Saw some reviews on belts and the ones I was thinking of getting folks said were too short. I have never measured mine and I am at work now...

    Floors and bed options.

    So now that I am a Scrambler owner again, and I don't plan on making that same crazy mistake of selling like I did before, I should probably give my new toy some tlc. It is really not in that bad of shape. One of, if not THE biggest issue is the floors are all pretty rough. There is a guy I met...

    What should I do with these seats?

    This is the passenger seat I took out of my Scrambler. Driver seat matches but was broken so I pulled the seats out of a YJ I have to hold me over until I can afford new seats. I plan on selling the YJ since I now have a scrambler again. So my question is: Do I just put these seats in the YJ...

    Colorado at Thanksgiving. Suggestions?

    So our oldest son is in the Air Force and is stationed in the Denver Area. Been trying to get out there and finally managed to swing a quick trip over the holiday. We will probably be pretty short on time but I figured I would check in here and see if anything is going on or if anyone had any...

    Will YJ Front seats fit in my CJ?

    Hey guys. Did a quick search and didn't see this answered right off, i'm sure it has been addressed but my search skills are lacking so I thought I would ask and title it so it would easily pop up if anyone else searches it later. Will Yj front seats fit in my CJ without modification? Either...

    Storing Full Hard Top. Options?

    Finally quit raining and the weather is getting nice. I figure it is time to take the full hard top off for the summer. Since my old 8 only had a 1/2 top this one will require a little more space and my garage ceiling is too low to be a good place for it. ( and there are already surfboards...

    84 power steering leak

    When I went to get my "new to me" 84 a couple of weeks ago the power steering was noisy and leaking somewhere. Discovered a loose hose on the drive home and thought that took care of it, but apparently it is leaking from the steering box as well. Looks like it is dripping from where the shaft...

    It's good to be back.......

    Finally got another Scrambler! Thanks to Robert Slone, and my VERY understanding wife, I am the proud new owner of another CJ8. Been kicking myself ever since I sold my first one. Just in time for beach weather too. Can't wait.........
