The Trash rebuild

I know it is a Scout and this is the Chevy section but the only thing Scout on this is the body. The rest is built out of an 81 one ton Chevy. The specs are full roller injected 454 sm 465 ord doubler 60/14 locked with 5:13's. On the one ton frame all sitting on PBR 42's. So at this point it is getting 4 linked in the rear and a 3 link in the ft. Then to shorten the body 18" and rebuild the crap pipe around the out side.
Here is how it stands be for the rebuild.


And here is the reason for the rebuild I am tired of this.
Joe - Potato Salad Hill - Moab, Ut - 9/8/2011 - YouTube

This is what I have done so far.

looking pretty good.

is the 'suck down' winch mounted to the rear axle? ive only ever seen them mounted to the frame, much simpler for wiring.

yes it is mounted to the axle. It worked out better room wise under full stuff.

I got both the shock towers installed to day. The next step is to build some cross members between them. and then finish cutting and patching the floor. does any one think it would be worth while to tie the top of the shock towers to the bed side bars on the fool cage.... the cage is already tied in to the frame.

I got the towers tied to each other and the cage. I also fished a pile of welding and braced into the frame some more.

Is it an optical illusion or are the shock towers angling forward some?

Looking good Joe!

Are you keeping the same ride height?

I always loved your old white truck because it sat so low!

I got the rear mostly finished to night. I played with the ORI's a little.
this is full bump


this is about right for ride height


the next 2 are stretching its legs a little. The ORI"S are 18's and in these 2 pics there is only 15 inches of chrome showing so there is still more to go.
I did discover the tires just touch the shocks with one side at full stuff and one at full droop so I just ordered some 1/2" wheel spacers to move them out.

took it out for a shake down on the rear suspension. All seemed to work real good.
here is a good under side shot of the rig.

What "was" the wheel base? 52" front springs?
Did you have an anti wrap bar?
Just trying to figure out the old from new.

Do you have a link to the original build thread?

the Wheel base was and is 123. I am trying to not change that. the ft springs where 52's and the rears where 56's. the video in the start I did have a anti wrap bar which I think made it worse.

I may ride along with some one. I am still to far away to having the ft end back in.
