A Look Into the Ball and Buck

The new Ball and Buck Original Signature Series CJ-8 begins with the Scrambler, first introduced in 1981 and produced over a half-decade span till 1986, this was a Jeep vehicle similar to the modern-day Jeep Wrangler pickup. Built with a small pickup bed, this was a Jeep vehicle built with versatility in mind. These unique Ball and Buck special edition vehicles have been made thanks to the hard-working of searching around the United States to locate and revive old Jeep vehicles into what Ball and Buck creates. Once found, a Jeep vehicle is shipped over to Kyle Smith of the Original Bird Buggy in Georgia to be worked on. Smith works on the modernized process and ensures the vehicles are crafted to be exactly as the owner wants.
