    Anyone done a 258 with HO 4.0 head EFI Conversion?

    I have been squirreling parts away for some time to do a 4.0 head swap on a 258 for my Scrambler. I have a complete 258 and was considering having it professionally built with the 4.0 head but am torn between a 4 barrel intake setup, Webber or going with a Howell EFI kit. I know people have...

    My Scrambler is headed in a new direction

    Well, here's the deal - my daughter will be driving to school Next year and the Scrambler is slated to be her DD. Her school is 38 miles from the house with 25 of it via the Interstate. The stock 258 is a little tired and gets poor mileage plus she cannot drive a manual so the T5 will have to...

    And you though Scramblers were cool!

    Check out these Jeeps::eek: :eek: Hey Ted, that one looks like the "Exhibit". You could cut the front half off Mary's 5, weld it to the back half of your 7 and put here rear axle under the back (don't think it would fit in you garage though). Alright Big Walton, the bar has been raised...
