Welcome! Get some pictures of that project to post :thumbsup:
Ok all you lurkers out there, it seems we've had a number of great posts and introductions from "lurkers" on here lately and it seems like it's time to try to draw more of these cool folks and great Scramblers out of the woodwork. :wave:

There's no reason to lurk on here, "the more the merrier" definitely applies, even if it's just to say "sweet rig" or throw out an idea. The cool part about forums like this is when people get to discussing things and sharing ideas/viewpoints/stories. You never know what could spark an idea for someone and help them get from :banghead: to :thumbsup:.

So come on out and post up--here, on your own introduction thread or just join in somewhere... :cheers:
Hello, like a few others I am also a new Scrambler owner. Picked up an 82 CJ8 in really good condition. I just couldnt quite figure out how to post on here or if I could without a membership.

So I am new to the board and haven't introduced myself yet. I just picked up an 84 scrambler with a 304 stock transfer and axles with a T4 coupke inches of lift. This is my first jeep but since I was a kid I have always wanted a scrambler.
I picked her up about 90% complete. Needs a front axle rebuild, new clutch and the engine is suspect. No doors or roof so currently using s jeep jacket. Besides that. no rust, frame redone. Excited to finally have an 8 and to join the group

Longtime lurker (and CJ7 owner), but look what finally followed me home. 1983 CJ8 with 151 Iron Duke and not sure what transmission. Body looks great on the outside, but rusty as heck on the inside. Frame is solid though. Looking forward to learning a lot from those in the know!

Hello everyone. 38years old and I live in Austin, tx. My wife has had an 82 scrambler in her family for years. Her grandpa bought it to drive around their vacation home in Pagosa Springs, CO 30 plus years ago. It has a few rust spots but nothing major. We recently got it running and I have an interest in working on the body to make it look good since it now runs good. Ill be taking it slowly replacing things when I can afford to.

Looking for fender flares right now. Any ideas? I have stumbled across some threads about flares but I get confused quick with the YJ, TJ, CJ7, wrangler parts fitting the front and others fitting the back.

Will be putting in a new radio and would like to get a center console with a speaker in it. Any ides for that?

Ill post pics soon.

Looking forward to the challenge.

Welcome Chabby. Most all offroad parts retailers will have fender flares for our Jeeps. Just make sure you get Scrambler / CJ-8 specific flares. Quadratec, Morris 4x4, 4wd should have them.....For a center console you could use any aftermarket piece and drill a hole for the speaker/s. Just don't mutilate a factory console please. 😊Those are getting hard to find in good shape.

Welcome Chabby. I had my ‘82 on a deer lease in Llano for 5+ years. Brought it home and got bitten by the “well, let’s fix this, now this, well not much harder to do this too...” next thing you know it is in a pile of parts getting a ground up build.

I bought the rugged ridge flares for the ‘83 and they look to be as good as the originals. But they are not installed yet. They also come with new screws and plastic nuts to mount them.
