    Where I'm at on project: My plans were not to worry to much about rust on body. Chemically treat the rust to slow until addressed properly. Concentrate on the mechanical condition. As mentioned earlier I know knowing about Jeeps, I know I like them, so what could go wrong? Kinda of like a mail...

    KISS Daily driver (keep it simple stupid)

    KISS Daily driver (keep it simple stupid)

    Introduction: Purchased a 1981 4 speed 4 cylinder Scrambler from a local small time classic car lot this summer. I knew nothing about Jeeps or any other 4x4 vehicle. I've always wanted a Scrambler or CJ7. The Scrambler checked all my blocks to keep a retired man from boredom. I plan on driving...

    Big if, but if I built a chassis from used frame I'm getting, using yj springs and new axles with the V8 transplant. I would have a complete 4 cylinder chassis left in one piece. Maybe less Transfer case? Will that old chassis be worth anything to anybody?

    Thanks for all replies, but I've got to be honest with you. This is all over my head. This 4x4 stuff is still a dog to me. Talk to me like a fifth grader. I won't get upset. I priced new axles and looking at 6k for new. I could keep what I've got, maybe different one piece axles. Is this...
