Well, I've finally got myself a scrambler. Her name is Rusty🤣. It's an 81 scrambler with 0M (dark brown metallic) paint. Spent its life plowing near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It has a little over 34000 miles. Three things tell me those are the original miles: 1. The seller told me 2. Both of the seats are in amazing shape - nor even the slightest tear in the driver's seat 3. I believe all of the Goodyear Wrangler tires are the originals. I'm happy to have the original ownership documents as well. I have a few questions about it: 1. Did all of the scramblers have the scrambler emblem on the rear quarters? I see no signs(like fading) on the original paint at all... 2. Rusty came with a factory am fm stereo. Is the one in it a factory option? 3. Do they still make the same Goodyear Wranglers? Ps. I'm looking for a nutmeg carpet set 😉 James 20190203_225935.jpg 20190204_153717.jpg 20190204_155049.jpg

Welcome. Rusty is a good name. At least the front floor boards aren't rusty(since they aren't really there. The frame sure has a lot of scale and surface rust. The bed is super clean at least. I am guessing the front floor boarda are so gone because the driver tracked snow in and the carpet got wet and just stayed wet in the winter and killed them. Did you get it running yet?

Not yet. I managed to find a complete factory NOS front floor section! 20190202_122542.jpg

I had an '85 Grand Waggy for several years, SOA on 33's....my kids always loved it too. It was a great overland/camping rig.

Nice! How did you get the Cherokee pushed back so close against the back wall of the garage?

With the CJ8, the first thing you will need to do is get that bed camper/shell off.
