    Craigslist and Estate Sale finds!

    Hell factory wheels too! Helluva score! Edited to add....are those Warn hubs on the front? Let me guess....the axles will be 3.54's or 3.73's with ARBs in them too..... Super jealous.

    1984 CJ-7 LS upgrade

    Tagging for info. I've always said I'd stick with the 258 in my Jeeps, but my FIL has a burb with the 5.3 and he's pretty much destroyed the rest of the burb, so whenever he continues making the truck scrap, I might pull the 5.3 for a Jeep transplant.

    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    I really like the T176. Have them in two of our Jeeps, and have a couple on the shelf for when (not if, but when) the T5 in the other Jeep goes bang. @spankrjs probably has more experience than anybody with the T5. I run regular gear oil in my T5 and so far it's held up ok, 3.31's and 31"...

    Looking for advice on automatic shift cable

    The ididit cable should work fine. I don't think there are any differences in the 904 and the 999 that aren't internal.

    Factory console lock question (trying to get it rekeyed)

    The 65-66 Impala glovebox lock cylinders are that way. The factory Jeep console locks can be taken apart without removing the ring. Daniel Missal on FB gave me that info (I'm off of FB now, but had the messages saved). The factory Jeep console lock doesn't require removal of the trim ring.

    Factory console lock question (trying to get it rekeyed)

    Was able to get it done yesterday. I held the cylinder and held the lever down while the locksmith picked the lock. It goes from locked to unlocked, then spin the cylinder another 1/4 turn and it will pop/slide right out. I just had stick my door key into the lock, and then file the wafers...

    Factory console lock question (trying to get it rekeyed)

    I have a few pics from a guy on FB showing the cylinder sliding out......Said you have to unlock the lock, then turn it an additional 1/4 turn while holding the lever down, and the cylinder slides out.

    Factory console lock question (trying to get it rekeyed)

    Hoping for a quick response on this, as I dropped the lock off at a locksmiths. Hoping he could have it keyed to match my door key. It is currently unlocked, and apparently to get the cylinder to change the wafers, you hold the latching lever down and it turns another 45 degrees and slides...

    1984 SL Restoration

    Funny that you mention that, as my wife works at a local community college and thus I can take classes free there. The only problem is, I have to work at the only times they offer welding classes..... I even asked the instructor if he would give me a few "pointer classes" after hours for which...

    1984 SL Restoration

    Good to know. I really, really suck at welding. I've played around a bit, but never been able to do much with any success. Cheap HF mig with no gas/ flux core isn't exactly the right machine to be learning with, but maybe some day.... On my old Accord I drive to work, I've been able to...

    20 gallon tank cleaning

    I've had a sending unit sitting on the shelf for several years. Don't even remember who made it. I did get the fancy brass float for it though! LOL Thanks for the valve seals. Plan is to clean this one, new lines, new sending unit, so hopefully it doesn't have to be pulled again for a long...

    20 gallon tank cleaning

    Figured it might have some of the "bad gas goop" in it from sitting a long time with E10 in it. I had a generator that I had to use muriatic acid to eat the goop out of the bottom of the tank. This tank looks like it might have a little goop on the bottom too.

    Horn relay?

    Green CJ7 hasn't been driven much since the arrival of daughter #3 in July of 2019. My middle kid is turning 16 next month though, and she's set her sights on the green CJ. We've swapped in a better driver's seat (old one had a lean, and likely a rusty frame), changed the oil, air filter...

    20 gallon tank cleaning

    Paid for an OEM 20 gal tank several months ago from a guy in Central Arkansas. Finally stopped by to pick it up this weekend. I already had a 20 gal skid and tank in good condition to eventually put into the Scrambler, but it was missing the little flap/mounting bracket thingy on the...
