Chevy engines in Jeeps make ThunderbirdJunkie sick. The guy that bought his CJ7 replaced the built 304 with a stock smog era 350

I went as far as checking prices on the VM 2.8L crate engine. IIRC, it was in the neighborhood of $8-10k and I balked.

Damn thats a STEAL, really. Ive seen cherried CJ-8s bone stock going for over $20K on ebay. Granted they were all original and low mileage but still. And a new one wont have its rarity or charm.

That's what I was thinking. I had a hard time telling myself no, I've already got two Jeeps, and I'm dead set on my next one being a diesel.

This one is dark burgundy metallic with a GM 350/TH350 trans with a twin stick transfer case. I dunno if it's a Dana 20 or Dana 300. It has a D60 rear and D44 front, too, if I remember correctly.

When ThunderbirdJunkie said Scrambler, he meant a newer, JK based Scrambler. He's had his fill of CJs

If its a twin stick, its likely a D300. Thats what came in all CJs after '79, and Ive never seen the 2 stick conversion for the D20. Personally Id say if you have the cash lying around then sell one of the other jeeps and grab that one! Scramblers are scarce and you might not get another chance at a nice one for a long time.

T-bird--youre gaining my respect more and more, buddy! I hate GM filth in my Jeeps, although it DOES beat a 6cyl...

Chrysler's Railroad

emailed to me today.



Chrysler's Railroad

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's Watergate or Clinton 's Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed? Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government "graciously" offered to "buy the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs." Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail," same story with GM.

The feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar - literally, that's what his title is. Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler had made this list of dealerships. That is not true. The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox New and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens. Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed? Actually there's a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign. Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation, Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky "coincidence," we're certain.

Then comes another really wacky "coincidence." On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson. Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier. These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed - not one! While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone. Isn't that amazing? Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn't being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union-Fiat owns 20%. The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don't agree with his political agenda. This is Nazi Germany stuff, and it's happening right here, right now, in our back yard. There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done. Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Car Czar No More
An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom.

According to CBS News, Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family." Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future."

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York . Uh-oh! But, we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation. And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn't have anything to with his resignation-that's ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to "spend more quality time with his family." Obama has 32 personally appointed "czars" who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority. But hey, we're sure they all have "unique skills," as Tim Geithner likes to say!

Couldn't leave this alone. As any decent history scholar will tell you, one of the principle forces behind bringing the Nazi Party to power in Germany in the '30s was their nigh-unparalleled ability to spin complete bull**** into believable stories that made it look like the ruling party was leading them to oblivion.

Who's the actual Nazi here? You people, spreading and believing this absolute trite.

Dammit, I need some ****ing coffee. It's too early to deal with retards.

Oh, that's right, everything on the internet is true! Sorry, I forgot.

Look, I've seen lesbians eating poo on the internet, that doesn't mean it's a good idea either. Fact-checking is your friend!

Chrysler races to upgrade its lineup

Revision for Wrangler

Vehicles getting important revisions include the Jeep Wrangler, coming in the third quarter. Wranglers sold with diesel engines, outside the United States, will get stop-start technology, which saves fuel by turning off the engine when the car stops.

Wranglers will also get exterior styling modifications.

If you rely on Snopes to provide your "facts," you're not going to be completely accurate most of the time. It's well known that they're way left leaning, and will modify as they see fit.

What's your hypothesis of why the dealerships were closed? The independent dealerships WERE NOT COSTING CHRYSLER ONE RED CENT while they were operating. Now with the lack of competition among same-brand dealers, they're sitting around wondering why sales are continuing to dwindle. I'm not going to drive 3+ hours to browse a car lot.

The fact is, Nazis were National Socialists and if you think the modern Democrat Party in America are not socialist, you are an idiot. So, yes, there are indeed some similarities.

So you sit north of the border and let us set an example for you of what you should do when socialism creeps in. Keep an eye on our 2010 and 2012 elections.

The fact is, we see what a huge failure your socialized medicine and other socialist policies are in Canada, and we refuse to be like you.
