Another great thing about a scrambler with a v8 ,is the fact its the only cj with enough room under the body for a fuel tank big enough to go anywhere .

got a question: so with the addition of AC and auto transmission we thought it a good idea to get a bigger radiator... the only one I've found is this :http://www.jeep4x4center.com/radiato...716690-aa.html

anyone know of a non-alumninium one? seems real steep and I'd think steel would be 1/2$

That is going to be a nice ride! Did you look into the Howell fuel injection? Worth every penny! (If you have the pennies)
