The wheelbase should be right around 124" I'll have to measure it though to confirm.

Did you have any thoughts about making fender flares from tubing, kinda like Metal Cloaks fenders for Heeps rather than the Bushwacker style you used?
I was planning on building an exo-cage out of some 0.120" wall DOM tubing and then integrating some big fenders flares into the cage but I decided against it due to the additional weight and because it would move my center of mass up higher. With these fender flares I don't have to worry about smacking them on a tree or something either which is why I initially ruled out other cut-out style fender flares.

It has a Warn M8000 in the front bumper right now. When I build a rear bumper I am going to put this winch out back and get either a Warn M12000 or M15000 for the front.

I wish I had some updates, I haven't even touched it for a couple of weeks...been tied up with other stuff.

I've got some pics and tech on the Cummins, Th475 and doubler that I'll post on in the meantime.

Ok, I had a little time to spend on the Scout so I made some progress.

I wanted to run some rock sliders on the Scout, so I was planning on making some but instead of dragging this project out any longer I found some sliders made by Trail Gear for Toyota's that seemed like a decent option. They are made from 1.75" OD, 0.120" wall DOM, they make them in 58", 67" and 78" lengths...the 67" length turned out to be perfect for my application and the price was right so I ordered them.

I wanted a slider that would actually be a slider and one that could also be used as a jack point if need be, I didn't like the 0.120" wall mounting legs they came with and plus they were to short, so I got some 1.75" OD, 0.250" wall DOM and made my own mounting legs.

I also designed some mounting fish plates and gussets which I had laser cut.

I don't have a tubing notcher so I cut the mounting legs to length and rough cut the cope in them with an OA torch and cleaned them up with a grinder. Here they are:

For the ultimate in strength I decided to run the mounting legs through the frame and tie them into the cross-member fish plate and gusset them into fish plates on the outside of the frame.

The hole saw took to long so I rough cut the holes in with the OA torch and cleaned them up with a grinder. Here are a couple shots of the holes:

I set the rock sliders in at an angle of 25* from the horizontal, which gives just enough clearance to open/close the doors while providing some protection to the body.

I pulled the Scout out of the shop to put my drivers side front fender back on after cutting and fitting the flare, you can see the sliders pretty well in these pics:

I also started working on the rear fenders, they are going to take alot of cutting to make the Silverback flares work. I am also going to have to cut out the rear fender wells, cut them in half, widen them out and weld them back in.

Here are a couple of pics of how the rear fenders will be cut to match the look of the fronts:

Nice progress Side bars and the front flares look good.

Not sure about the rear flares, though...you've got them mounted "backwards" so maybe that's why it's throwing me off?

Love the sliders. the rear flares are for the front correct? why not use rear flares??? Still love the terra


Edit: looked again. I see where you are going to trim at the rear of the fender.

Yeah you guys are right the flares I am using on the rear are actually fronts. I purposely custom ordered two sets of front flares for two reasons. First, the Early Bronco's have a body line in the rear quarter panel, so rear Bronco flares have that contour molded into them which I didn't want. Second, I wanted to trim the rear quarters on the Scout up higher on the back end so they would be less of an obstacle with departure angles and wouldn't get bashed as easily.

I am in the Chico area, about an hour and a half north of Sacramento.

Here is how I cut out the fender and fender-well, my original plan was to cut the fender-well in half widen it out and weld it back in...after looking at it thinking about it I decided I would be better off making custom fender-wells due to the fact that the tires stick so far out of the fender-wells there would be alot of wasted/dead space in keeping with the conventional rounded fender-well.

Here is how I ended up cutting it out for some custom new fender-wells.

Here is how the fender ended up after cutting...I still have a little trimming to start doing here and there, then I have to fab up some new fender-wells and weld them in....gives alot more room for the 46's.

Looks Great! I personally really like how the front flares "reversed" in the back look. I ran the 3" cutout early bronco flares on mine, but never thought about running a second pair of fronts. Real smoooth.

It all looks really great, but you'll probably wish ya had a bit more clearance between your sliders and the bottom of your door, a good smack on the slider and you'll be stuck in your cab!
