Hammer- me thinks you're "ate up" with the Jeep bug!!I gave up on finding a scrambler all together...
I live in one of the 'Notches' in the 'Rust Belt', so if you do find one, it's rusted to dust and the owner STILL wants $6,000 for it!
I swear, I'm going to shorten a FSJ or Truck frame and drop a Re-pop CJ-8 or CJ-10 body on it!
Right now, I have a '73 CJ-5 with skinny steering column, no plastic on the dash, and a factory V-8 under the hood!
Love that little go cart!
I have a '79 CJ-7 that is a dedicated trail rig, Scout axles, V-8, Automatic, lengthened wheel base setting on 38" tires.... Works REALLY well, but if I want larger tires (and are we EVER satisfied with the tire size? )
I'm going to have to go up to Dana 60's or porthole axles...
My 'Haul All' is a '86 Grand Wagoneer, I have three pickups, a gladiator, and two J-20's,
So I'm 'Jeep Rich' right now...
I've always wanted one but with kids (not the goat type) its not too practical to go the CJ route so after my car gave up the ghost, I was able to purloin a '99 Cherokee (hence my screen name ). I'd love to pick your brain about the ins and outs of Jeepdom and how to make mine better. I'll post a pic if I get a chance!
