    1982 Jeep Scrambler Project

    Hi Gang,

    This Sunday I'm headed out to the town of Maricopa to look at a 1982 CJ-8 Scrambler. It looks like it has been sitting around for 10 years and needs a great deal of work but it appears to be all there (even the cab hardtop) and I'm thinking I might be able to pick it up for $850.

    I'll snap some pictures when I go to look at it and post them up.

    Joe

    I'm trying not to get my hopes up... but hey, it's worth the drive and the price appears to be right (assuming it isn't a wrecked rust bucket).

    Any idea what engine it has?

    Thinking about a V-8 swap?

    it has the factory inline 6 in it. I doubt I'll do a V8, more likely than not I'll put a TJ 4.0l inline 6 in it.

    Re: Going to look at a Scrambler on Sunday!

    Here are the batch of pictures... ack... am I ready for this?

    I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts as to whether or not this vehicle is worth $850. Assume it does not run.


























    More to come in the next post

    I would not waste ny money on that. It would take couple thousand just to get it worthy to take on the trail. If you are looking for long term project it might be good.

    I'd buy it just for the seats, those are PIMP! Looks fairly solid, but definately a major project. What were you going to do with it?

    Joe... did you crawl up under it... how much rust does she have?

    I would start with $500 but not go any higher than $600...

    I would agree... long term project but she looks solid...

    Hey... offer the $500 if they dont want it... walk... but make sure
    they have your number, tell them to call if they change their mind..

    I did that with a rear end on craigslist... guy wanted $500, I offered
    him $350 he said $400, I said $375 he said no $400... told him wont
    go higher and to keep me in mind...

    Guess what I have sitting in my garage for $375

    14 bolt Chevy 1-ton rear end


    Yeah, I'm a girl drivin a jeep you have a problem with that?

    Does that price include the dog?
