Scratch-Built Scrambler: Jeep CJ-8Posted in Project Vehicles on December 1, 2010 Comment (0)
The closer we get to installing the final few products on the Scratch-Built Scrambler, the more we can feel the wind blowing over the bikini top and smell the tire rubber burning while we push the Jeep through our favorite rock garden.
We can't tell you exactly how many years we have been wrenching, welding, and cutting, but a child would have gone from birth to Little League in that time. A few shops have helped with the build and done a phenomenal job at helping piece this rig together, and we greatly appreciate the help.
We've jumped over a couple of hurdles in the build that have gotten us much closer to driving it out of the shop, namely the MagnaFlow exhaust system and Currie Enterprises' front and rear Antirock sway bar systems. We enlisted the help of the guys at Overkill Engineering again because the sway bars on the Jeep are a custom installation and Overkill does fabrication work. Both the sway bars and the exhaust system will give the Jeep the better on- and off-highway performance we'll really appreciate once it's out of the shop.
