Well, I will start from the beginning. I purchased my first Scrambler in 2004 off Ebay. The listing had one grainy picture. Going on the sellers word. I purchased a 1984 rot box. The deeper I dug the more rot I found. I began searching for a useable tub to no avail. Then about 5 years ago I found a 1983 Scrambler local that had a decent bed but absolutely no front floor. It was a basket case but priced cheap so I bought it hoping I might be able to make something out of the two. Years have past and the two Scramblers have sat side by side in the back yard waiting their turn as other Jeep projects have taken precedents. My wheeling rig/sunday cruiser is a 1988 YJ. It is a great Jeep but with the NH DOT regulations it is kind of at its limit as far as lift and tires go. Deciding it was time to build another Jeep that I could trailer and not have to worry about traffic laws I started toying with the idea of building a wheeling rig out of my pair of rusty Scramblers. That is of course until I saw Cape8's for sale thread on a local forum. Not having the toy budget to buy his a 400HP 355 SBC powerd Scrambler with a AtlasII T case I was thrilled when he decided to sell it as a roller. It is a clean Texas Jeep with lots of fancy goodies. It is actually to nice for me to go beat up in the woods so I will be building it as more of a driver/class 6 wheeler and my YJ will be seeing the more extreme wheeling.
