    Prices for sale, verses selling prices

    It seems like the factory stock Jeeps are worth more and the purist groups are growing in size. I do see most sellers getting close to what they are asking but once they get over 30k it just turns me away since I cannot afford to play in that group. Now oddly enough I have close to that in my...

    Just bought an LS drivetrain.

    So I have been driving the Jeep almost daily for the last two months and I am completely in love with my Scrambler again. I had an issue with the transmission and only had 1 and 3rd gear. Turned out the band was shot and would not hold the drum in place which is a common problem. This motor...

    1983 Scrambler "STUMP JUMPER". Frame off, 5.3 Conversion.

    Being a recent finisher of my LS swap I can say wither certainty that I should have done this in the beginning. This driveline just make the Jeep a whole new beast and it is just fun to drive daily now. I am a full fledged convert now and thanks to you and Randy for the great threads.

    I always worry about getting rear-ended and then you have almost 20k in bikes destroyed and Jeep damage. I keep my bike on the roof of my car or in the bed of a truck.

    Giving it a Jolt

    When I converted to my AX15 and hydraulic clutch I just drilled a hole into the mechanical clutch pedal lever and it worked great for 4 years until I pulled it.

    My daughters and I went to a school function and we needed to dress up our vehicle and ourselves to match a favorite movie. My kids both wanted to take the Jeep and go with this Jurassic Park theme. This was my driving force to get the LS swap finished so I could take them. We won the most...

    Let’s see your LS air filter setups

    Here is my filter setup for now. I bought a cheep $59 amazon filter kit for a Silverado and then bought a good K&N filter. I just cut the tub down to the size I needed. I actually want to flip it to the other side and then make a sheet metal box so it can be a real cold air setup.

    Just bought an LS drivetrain.

    Well after a major push these past 5 days and about 30 hours worth of work I finally got the swap done and the Jeep driving. It feels so good to have a real motor with real power. I should have just did this when I built the Jeep the first time. Now I just need to button things up like...

    Electric Fan Question-

    This is my fan from a Ford 500 that I got for $30 at a pick yard. It is a dual fan and dual speed. I set it up for low speed on the large fan and high speed on the small. If I have cooling issues I will just change the wire on fan to get more CFM.

    Let’s see your LS air filter setups

    I am working on my setup right now. I bought a cheep $60 kit for a Chevy Silverado and then bought a K&N filter for it. This is much less money than spending $300+ on the U built it kits.

    New Axles project -Wagoneer Front and Scout rear?

    I used the same bolt locations as the drum backing plate with grade 8 and locknuts. I cut the backing plate down to be a small ring so I can still use it as a bearing/shaft retainer.
