|johnbo||Hey, I know you said you wanted to build your own. But in case you change your mind, I am selling my CJ8. You can still do some work on it but all the heavy lifting is done.|

Keep an eye on these guys Collins Brothers Jeeps and Jeep Parts
You may find something, although the prices are retail.

You may consider a CJ-6... just as rare as an 8... maybe more so. These have a similar body as a 5 except with 20 extra inches in the middle. Wheelbase is the same as an LJ but body is 3 inches shorter in the backend. You can still get soft tops for them and they carry the same parts set as a CJ-7.
Or, if you are good with tools and fabricating you can make your own from a CJ-5. This is what I did last year and it makes a great rock crawler. (See signature for build thread.)

Note my screen name....
Yes, I once owned a Scrambler... best Jeep ever! I really miss her.
Had over $12K invested and sold it for a mere $8k
If you find one cheap... grab it, hang on to it. It'll be an investment!
But I doubt you will... I have been look for a long time now....
Here's a shot of my old CJ8 (gone to Texas now...)

|Rusty Knutt||Unless you have a gold horseshoe lodged..you wont be able to find a Swiss cheese Scrambler for under 5k...have you given thought to a Jeepster? You can hunt down a decent roller for 1500 or less.|

|harleydragon||cj8's and cheap are rarely used in the same sentence these days..either get ready to spend more than you indicated or look for something else|

Hey gents, stopping by from the JK side of the house. I've decided to sell my old car and I'm looking at trying to find a scrambler to build with my boys. I'm having trouble finding what I'm looking for though. I'm basically looking for a clean frame and tub that rolls. The rest doesn't matter much because I have some pretty ambitious plans for it. Although if there was one that was running and in"okay" shape I might go for that too just to be and to roll around in it every now and then while I let parts pile up. anyone know a good place to start looking?
