so ive decided to change things up a bit and instead of using the 7.00-15 im gonna go with 7.50-16 power king traction II for my winter driving as to keep with the same height ish as the 7.00-16 ndcc tires for my summer driving so basically my plan is to trade my set of 15's for 16's and that'll make 2 sets of 16's and also would these be the correct tubes to use for both sets of tires

EVERYTHING ELSE, General tips / battery group size and how many cca

so this topic im sure has been beat to death but there is still no real answer that i have come across, when switching to a 12v battery what group size is the most correct fitting for the battery hold downs as there are a couple different sizes for our jeeps that may fit and i currently have a cj3a battery tray and i plan on using the willys mb battery hold down because it allows for a bigger battery and a 36r battery seems to fit darn near exact and thus brings up the next topic of how much cold cranking amps are needed to crank a 6v starter using 12v in say 20 degree avg temps because it seems the 36r only comes with 650cca

ya the other day me and work buddy got talking about insurance and that he has hagerty for his 69 c10 and pays a really low price and loves there service and i did a quote for mine and it wasnt low low but in my sure ill pay that price range so im convinced to go with hagerty

id be more than willing to sell my cj3a driver and passenger seat if i could first get a driver and passenger seat for an m38 in darn good condition and im 6 foot 2 inches (almost 3) 315 ish lbs depending on season lol

to me your plate looks fake and made up, my plate on my 1950 cj3a is the original with patents and stamping etc and is serial number 40935 and as far as i know they were all 5 digit and i wanna say your serial could be 32187

Engine compartment / l134 fuel choices/performance
« on: October 18, 2019, 09:47:46 PM »
so i got to thinkin and was wondering if there is any real noticeable improvements to our l134 engines (more hp, better mpg etc) when using lower or higher octane fuels and whether or not the additives in the higher octane fuel helps any with our classic engines and if anyone has done any sort of testing id love to see it
