    Scrambler project

    So I have started collecting parts for a scrambler build. I plan on starting in a couple of weeks once I finish with working 7 days a week. Then on to the project.
    So far I have acquired a 81 scrambler body and a 83 cj7. The plan is to rob parts from the cj7 for the scrambler. Gonna stretch the 7 frame to fit the 8 and then start adding the drive train. Should be fun. Image1537748308.342639.jpgImage1537748318.611478.jpg

    Plan is to drop a 350 that I just built for a different project. Then add a automatic transmission and mount a twin stick Dana 300. I have a pair of 3/4 Chevy axles I may put under it. Either way this will be the biggest project I have ever taken on.

    Started stripping the scrambler tub yesterday and the previous owners hacked the hell out of the wiring harness. So I’m gonna scrap it and order a new one later on. Plan is to get the tub media blasted so I can see where I need to replace panels.

    It’s been a slow process. But I have the donor Jeep ready to pull apart and stretch the frame to fit the scrambler. Got to get a couple of days off work and make that happen soon. Gonna build a stand to set the scrambler tub on and start the body work. Will post pictures soon.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
