Hi, new to the site near Portland Oregon

Postby ScramblerCJ8 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:36 am

Hi, finally was able to log in and become an active member.
I have being reading all of the threads related to my ongoing projects and ones I have not started yet.
Getting ready to start a LS1 and 4L60E conversion on my 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and 1966 Jeep j series, don't know what it is, someone else's unfinished project, still sitting on my trailer.
I bought the 89 wagon for 400 bucks from a GI at the Navy base in Bremerton Wa. has a bad engine, the truck I got from a guy that changed direction and decided to build a Willys truck instead. Got it for 140 bucks, just a rolling chassis, cab and front clip. Pretty rough, but cool, has the little rear window and a 1966 model is emissions exempt here in Oregon.
Will post picture when I figure out how to upload to the site. I'm a retired auto tech and not very knowledgeable on the pc world.
Thanks for reading.
Carlos. :D

Welcome Carlos from a fellow scrambler owner.
Tapatalk is an app that seems to make posting pics easier but it can be quirky sometimes.

Thanks for the info Ted, I will try it.
Also have a 1981 Scrambler, that I will be doing an LS1 swap, 700R4 Transmission, Dana 44 axles with ARB lockers and a t case out of a Rubicon TJ with 4:1 low. Got all the parts, but have to finish two other jeep projects in progress, so I can have room in my workshop.

I’m interested in your 66, I really dig the small rear window. I’m not far from you in Oregon City.
