I'm looking for a scrambler/cj-8. Can be stock or mildly modified. Doesn't matter what shape it's in but this also determines what I will pay. If you have one or know of one for sale e-mail me the info thanks.
I remember finding a CJ6 in the paper, (when looking for a 5 or 7) i got SOOOO exctied! But I called and it was already sold. They were asking $3000 if I remember, and according to the add it wasn't in bad shape.
I think it would be a lot of fun to build one of those.
I think that wrangler rubicon thing is way overpriced, if the 31 grand US I heard is correct.
I don't understand why they're charging extra for axles that should come stock with those jeeps. The only place dand 35's belong is mabye behind a 1.3L suzuki motor.
The downside of dumb people being able to buy those is that now they'll go further into places they shouldn't be going in the first place.
I'm sorry, but for 31 grand US, i could buy me a YJ, send it to a shop, and have it build for me properly, with 60's, and a chevy or ford drivetrain, and STILL have money left over for another one.
Although, it's NICE to see chrysler going the opposite way of IFS plauge that hit the KJ. For that, I give them credit. It's defenetly nice to see.
When I can get a reasonably priced TJ with a good v8, 60's with chrome-molly axels, locked up ofcourse, liften, with a 100:1 crawl ratio or better, And enough lift to wiht 36" swampers or maybe even 38's, THEN they'll have my attention. Until then, I'll build it my damn self
i'm not ripping a hole in anything or anyone other than the dana35, and the axle has nothing to do with wheeling ability (other than the fact it will break if you wheel it hard). All I'm saying is the axle is insufficient for the power produced by the jeep, but a suzuki has only a 1.3L engline, thus it produces less power/tourque, (which is fine since it's lighter) thus it is less likely to break under a lighter vehicle with less power than under a jeep. I said nothing about wheeling ability. CHILL!
