    Can’t really get a pic, but I have about a mm of clearance above the blower motor before I hit the bottom of the battery tray. Close.

    It is close, but I had no issues with the battery tray on mine. I will try to remember to look closely at the clearance when I get back yo it later tonight or tomorrow.

    Now, as for the 1949 CJ 3a, we picked that up in May 2018 from a family friend of my wife’s. It was “restored” back in 1982 and has been living in a barn and driving around the POs farm since then. It is in really good shape. Since picking it up, I have done little things like add mirrors and mount the spare on the rear passenger side. I also ran fuel hose around the metal fuel lines to help insulate them to stop a vapor lock issue I was having. Recently I replaced the 6v battery and cleaned up all of the cable connections to help with a starting issue. I think the battery had a bad cell and was not cranking well. Seems to do better now. No real plans for it other then new tires and keep it nice and drive it around as much as I can.

    After backing it into the garage, I noticed some writing under the paint on the windshield vent. So I took it off and traced it a bit to see better what it may have looked like. I think I am going to have a better artist fill out the text. “Flying W Ranch”. The ranch is still around up in PA. So I am learning a bit about it.

    Ok. So I did not see a “Rigs” or “Builds” section. So I will put some info here. My 1984 Scrambler: I had been dreaming of owning a Scrambler since 1986 when I learned to drive and first saw one. In college I had a chance to buy one but was a poor college student so..... Marriage, kids and life got in the way for a while, until I thought about Jeeps again (I had an XJ in high school and college). Bought a cheap YJ to see if I really wanted to get back into a Jeep. YES. SO i started a search for a Scrambler. I found a bunch I could not afford. I had to be able to drive it immediately so no “projects”. I found this one for a decent price in OH. Honestly, I should have kept looking. But I bought it. Fixed a few things and made it better in my opinion as I was driving it around. A few years later, I discover the frame was rotting out from the inside. Major holes. So I had to do a complete frame swap in my garage and driveway. I got a frame and built a rolling chassis in my garage. Had some friends over to move the drivetrain and then move the body

    Most of the screws were stripped. So I got tired of getting bigger screws. I put the latches into the top using rivets. Through the metal strip and into the fiberglass.

    Here are a couple of mods I have done. While doing the new chassis, I installed a 20 gallon poly tank to replace the 15 I also decided that I did not want to drop the tank to replace the fuel sending unite which I know will happen since it is from Omix. So O installed a boat hatch in the bed. I also added some USB and 12v power for my phone. And to make removal of the half cab easier/quicker, I got rid of the screws and added these latches from McMaster-Carr. 4 for the front and 3 for the rear connection to the bulkhead.

    Hello. My name is Dain. I am from Ashburn, but grew up in Hampton, VA. I had an 86 XJ in HS and college. Then had a Full Size Bronco instead of a minivan when my first kid came around. Then a few years later picked up a YJ to get back into Jeeping. Sold it to pick up my current daily driver, a 1984 Scrambler. We ended up picking up a 2015 JKU for the family/kids’ vehicle. And my wife recently picked up a 49 Willys CJ3a from a family friend. I have been to Flagpole a few times, as well as The Cove at Gore, but mainly go to Rausch Creek in PA for big trips.

    Hello everyone! I'm Daniel and currently living in Lynchburg. Glad to be a part of the site and look forward to chatting and meeting everyone! Here's a picture of my 2014 Tundra. It currently sits on 37s wrapped on Moto Metal M079Os with a BDS 7" suspension lift, Gibson Metal Mulisha exhaust, Volant CAI, and DV8 front bumper.

    We've picked up donor XJ's early 90s ODB I for around $400 in Roanoke Area. I've debated swapping over an entire 4.0 and AX15 or NV3550 into mine, since I went with 4.56 gears. Not sure what my highway mileage is... but around town I'm averaging 16-17mpg. I'd love the OD gear for cruising. as I too currently use my CJ for mostly Daily Driving.

    She had memories in it from her younger years. When she heard he was considering selling, she jumped on it. I get to play with it and keep it running though. So we both win.

    [video=youtube_share;UUrDhtHCORE] I made a video for another forum that I feel may help others here to understand what caster is and how it relates to jeeps.
