740 lbs is a substantial weight reduction. Looks good. The porta potty is priceless! Just gotta park heading into the wind!

Nice build....The Scout looks great. But I can't figure out why yours is so heavy. What kind of spares are you carrying? Mine was 4360 lbs back when I had it together (weighed empty)...and I had similar drivetrain components.

I cut down on what I bring for spares now. I had spare drag link, tie rod, front axle shafts, rear spring. Now I have just both spare driveshafts, u-joints for driveshafts and axles, nuts and bolts, alternator ( I am running dual alternators), fuel pump, heims, hoses, belts, tools, gear oil, grinder, rod ( have a premeir power welder in it). I know that the dual tcases(203/205) are pretty heavy. Front and rear bumper are 1/4 wall tubing, rock sliders and skidplates are 3/16, I also plated the frame rails between the front and rear spring handers with 3/16 angle (I landed hard on the frame once and put a dent in it, won't happed again) Steering box mounts are 1/2" plate. Both 60's arn't light either. All that steel adds up. My problem is that I am an ag mechanic and I need to carry alot of crap in my service truck to be able to fix things in the field and that tends to carry over into what I bring with me when wheeling.

Yeah, nice build. The weight doesn't seem too bad now. My 80 on 37's weighs 4200 with a spare tire, lots of parts, and me in it. I plan on some weight reduction this winter too. Pinch and drop the nose like you, full hydro, aluminium rad, lose the inner fenders, lose the spare tire, move some stuff around. I'm shooting for 3700lbs in trail form.

Again, nice rig and nice build.

Fixed...

Back from the Hammers. Carnage, bent both rear springs, broke front and rear drivelines, had spares though. No new dents. I'll add some pics later.

I normally do not like pinched/dovetailed Scouts, but you did a great job!

I looked at getting some of those Staun beadlocks a few years back, but ended up with H1 rims and rubber beadlocks. I drove about 10 miles on the trail with a flat tire an made it out of Fordyce. The rubber inside did not even get messed up The tire split a side wall, so I just drove on it. Thats my spare too

Well with winter here. I figured I should probably put a top on. The STC softtop I have won't fit now due to the dovetail, so I am going with the half cab I have. It had been cut to fit my old cage. The new cage is wider and the top wouldn't come down to meet the windshield. Nothing that a cutoff wheel couldn't fix though. Trimmed the back and I am going to have my upholstery guy build me a back panel that snaps onto the top. Made a cardboard template for a fillerplate the top can snap to. I still need to clean up the cuts, and weld in a filler piece where the tops cut for the center bars of the old cage.

That is almost exactly what I have in mind for mine. When I built the cage a few weeks ago I wanted it tall so the 1/2 top wouldnt fit. I even have it marked but I want to put another 40' or so of tube in before I make the cuts in the top.

Looking really good.

So I got the half cab fitted and built a panel for the top of the bulkhead that my upholstery guy can make me a back panel that will snap to the top. Hopefully he can do it next week. Installed a heater. Ran ducting to the defroster ports. Not much room for the heater vents, ran it under the steering column. Seems to put out some good heat, should keep me warm on my snow runs. Need to change the thermostat out from my 165 to a 180.

The silver color looks really great on that rig. I seen a silver G Wagon that I almost bought because it was that same silver color.

Not many vehicles look good in silver.
