    What's on your Work Bench?

    Is that Sage Green, a la 1992 Wrangler Sahara; or Sarge Green a la JK and JL Wranglers? Looks kind of between to me, but I agree, very sharp looking color.

    What's on your Work Bench?

    One rail good, other needs patches. Looks like a beach Jeep, but from what I can tell, it never went to the beach. Guessing it was exposed to lots of animal “stuff”.

    What's on your Work Bench?

    I drug this thing home last weekend, been dismantling it slowly. Shocking that a native Texan Jeep looks like one from New England. Been channeling my inner Craig. :thumbsup: Lived most of it’s life on a Texas Safari ranch giving tours.

    The '83 - Family Man

    The dual fuel pumps is the Achilles Heal of the surge tank setup. But, every Pleasure Craft Marine powered boat has been using a surge tank setup since before 2000, and I have not heard of too many failures. If I was starting over, I probably would have used a Fuel Control Cell from a PCM engine...

    Gig’em. I don’t recall seeing that around town when I was in school. I am assuming you were there around the time I was. ’97

    Texas red title question

    Not bought yet. I‘d imagine that lien is long gone since the title was from ‘91. But the seller is not Clinton. At least 2 owners since then.

    How does Acme top attach to windshield frame?

    I drilled and tapped my windshield frame for the J hook portion of the latch. I am sure rivets would work too.

    How does Acme top attach to windshield frame?

    You need to supply the mating j hook. It is not a Jeep factory attachment method. The factory hard top used a strip of metal screwed to the frame and roof.

    4XE vs 392 Wrangler

    I’m starting to lean towards the 4XE. There are rumors the tax rebate might be increased with the Build Back Better bill. If I work hard enough on a 392 deal, best I could do is about 7.5% under msrp. I think 5% under invoice for a 4XE in addition to the tax credit is possible. Making the 4XE...

    How does Acme top attach to windshield frame?

    Looks like a draw latch. I have a similar latch on my half top. McMaster Carr

    That is great, just wanted to prevent disappointment if you were expecting like original rims.

    Any Vintage Tractor Aficionados Here?

    Every time my grandfather bought a tractor, the dealer would give him a model of it. His collection is in the Platteville, Colorado museum.

    4XE vs 392 Wrangler

    Our Land Cruiser is supposedly 6.5 seconds. I know our Tundra is slightly faster, guessing 6.3 seconds. Guess I am missing the speed of our 01 Mustang Cobra (long gone, thank goodness), but the 4XE matches that at a rated 5.5 seconds. When my wife test drove the SQ7, she gave it half throttle...

    KISS Daily driver (keep it simple stupid)

    The wheels you bought are nice, but they have different windows than original wheels. If that does not matter to you, great. If you are a purist and little details like that bug you, then beware. Original windows are “rolled” in towards the axles. Modern rim windows are “sharp“ square edged.

    4XE vs 392 Wrangler

    What is everybody’s thoughts on the 392 and 4EX? I have been seriously considering getting a 392. A couple months ago I called around to a few dealers, actually found one equipped like I want, but everybody wanted $15k over sticker for them. I know new cars are in a state of insanity (as is...

    Getting a PA title with an out of state Bill of Sale

    In Texas, and other states, you can get a bonded title. You have to buy a bond that will pay the rightful owner the value of the vehicle if they dispute ownership and can prove you are not the rightful owner. Your title is branded “bonded” until a set length of time expires, then you get a...

    Any Vintage Tractor Aficionados Here?

    Watch out for those tractors. Don’t let them too close to other tractors, they are like rabbits. I have a buddy that started with a JD3520, then got an old JD1010, then his grandfather’s old Alice Chalmers, then a couple more recent JD’s from his dad, then a new Kubota, recently a new Mahindra...
