Nick Name: Scrambled eggs Home Page:  
Make: Jeep Email Address:  
Model: Scrambler Location:  
Year: 81

Bill Stimmel owner of
“Bill’s Auto and 4×4 Repair /MudBug Motor Sports, Muskogee, Ok. has
used a lot of his time and all his technical experience building this
classic Jeep.

is an 81 Scrambler built with power and traction in mind. The small block
chevy is bored 30 over with
flat top forged TRW pistons, Lunatti
cam ,closed chamber ported polished 202 heads, Roller rockers. The Holly
Pro-jection. Ceramic coated Headers, Flow master mufflers, K & N
filter keep this powerhouse in fuel and air.
Attached to the engine you will find.
a Turbo 400 mated to a dana
300 t case with twin stick chrome molly front shaft.

A rear 9″ with 35 spline
axles, full spool, and 4.88

along with a narrowed Dana 44 with Detroit 4.88 gears in front deliver the
power to the trail through 39.5x18x15 Boggers on bead lock wheels.


With so much put into the drive
train Bill had to build a custom suspension to carry it all. The 21/2 pro
comp springs, grease-able shackles spring over with over the spring
steering make this rig a comfortable yet extreme ride.

Practicle upgrades make up the
changes inside with Pro-comp liquid filled gauges, Summit Racing seats, 5
point harness, Hurst slap stick shifter.

Last but not least, Bill
installed a Ramsey Pro 9000winch, Optima battery,100amp alternator and

Pokey ’85 Toyota



Nick Name: Pokey Home Page:  
Make: Toyota Email Address:  
Model:   Location: Colorado, USA
Year: 86-85

Affectionately named Pokey by its owner this Toyriffic Toyota climbs almost everything in its path.

Sporting 36″ Super Swamper tires Pokey seems to make the toughest obstacles look easy.  A u-bolt flip, 4″ superlift springs, custom cross over steering with IFS steering box, Marlink tie-rod and draglink, and custom steering arms up front with a ’86 rear axle, 3.5″superlift springs in the rear make clearing the big meats possible.  The custom paint job was applied by Ryan and his uncle Richard.

Pokey is an appropriate name for this truck. The Marlin double transfer case with one 4:1 and one stock gearset Marlin Crawler with 4.38 gears front and rear keep this vehicle moving at a snails pace.

As a master welder, Ryan had no problem reducing the size of the truck bed by 12″. This gives Pokey the short wheel base needed for serious rock crawling.

The 5 speed tranny out of a 86 Toyota along with vented front rotors from a FJ-40 add to the trail performance of this rig.

Front & Rear EZ Lockers make quick work of most terrain. For the rare times that he needs help getting over an obstacle a 9000lb winch is bolted up front to his custom bumper. The interior roll cage keeps the driver safe when the wrong side is up.

All an all this ride may not look very pretty, but it will crawl over some of the worse terrain in the nation.
