The Scrambler is much more difficult to find in good condition compared to a CJ7. Production was only from 1981 - 1986, and on a much more limited volume than the CJ7. Subsequently, values are 30-40% higher than similarly equipped CJ7's, and 50-60% higher than CJ5's.
My Scrambler has been a Texas truck it's entire life. 2 Owners. There are no rust issues. The original floors and bed are still in the truck. The hardtop fits very nicely. The doors shut nicely as well, and close flush with the body and have even body gaps all around. The paint on the truck is original and tells a tale of awesome adventures and good times through its dings and scratches.
The original engine, transmission, transfer case, and axles are all still with the truck. The rear axles has been upgraded to Alloy One-Piece axles and the front hubs have been upgraded to SuperWinch locking hubs. The original 6 cylinder has 109,000 miles and change. It still has the original Carter carb on it. Start up takes a 5-7 pumps and about 30 seconds to get warmed up enough to idle nicely. Once warmed up, I don't get any hesitation out of it and I don't notice any flat spots. Idles around 800rpm. The 4-speed shifts nicely. The clutch only has a couple thousand miles on it. It engages smoothly and does not have any chatter. If you rest your foot on the clutch pedal while driving, you will get some squealing out of the throw-out bearing. Either don't do that, or the throw-out bearing could be replaced. Steering is smooth and easy. The wheel centers back as it should and tracks straight down the road. Additionally, it has power brakes. Brakes engage smoothly and stop the truck without issue. No problems with 4-wheel drive, nor the locking hubs. The Jeep is in nice driving condition and I would trust it around town. It'll do 70mph on the highway without issue but I'm not going to be driving it California haha.
The Scrambler is a tremendous candidate for a complete restoration. Or drive as is and enjoy the fun of having a classic Jeep that gets a ton of attention!
