I bought parts from Ballistic in the past and had great parts/service...but now... not so much. I'm 2 months behind now.

I got the fenders cut with the new wider flares, added mud flaps, and a few other odds and ends.

Once I get the steering parts, I should finish the D60 swap, get an alignment, and get my inspection... hopefully.

If you can change your order, I would like you to look at WFO for the high steer arms.

Yeah... I was checking WFO, Poly Perf, Parts Mike out last night, I'm going to give Ballistic a chance to fix it, but if it doesn't get resolved soon, I'm ordering from somebody that has stock on hand can deliver riki-tik.

All right, well... I have made some progress, but I've been delayed getting the D60 swap done since I'm waiting on some hi-steer parts from Ballistic Fab but I did make some progress in the fender flare department. The original Wild Horses Gorilla flares I got only add about 2.5" of tire coverage, and in order to pass the reconstruction inspection in Oahu I need to cover the tires and add mud flaps. So I ordered up the Wild Horses Silverback Flares which cover about 4"-4.5" which covers the rear great, and I'll probably have to get creative to pass on the front, but it's a lot better. The mud flaps look stupid...but it's better than getting a ticket.

Scout purists, turn your eyes away. Aw who am I kidding, those guys fainted and quit reading a long time ago. The smaller Gorilla flares fit a little better than the larger Silverback flares. They are super tough and flexible, I tried to follow the Scout fender lines, and I think they look pretty damn good.

I upgraded the rear tail lights with some 4" LED lights, but the grommet wouldn't fit with out enlarging the hole, so I used a few wraps of electrical tape to snug of the fit and shoved it in the hole to get it shipped over. I didn't like the unfinished look and I didn't want to enlarge the hole to fit the grommet.

A few days ago, I was looking at my old cracked lenses and realized that there was a lip on the lens that was the same size as the LED tail light. After a few measurements, I used a flush trim router bit to cut the center out of the lens and a few drops of super glue around the circumference and now I have stock looking LED tail light.

It took about 5 minutes to do. I need to take some pics with them lit up.

That looks Looks like those flares would cover what I cut out of mine. Did you have issues with the molded area for the ferd body line?

Hey Guidolyons, That is a nice scout . The IH purist you speak of lost their wad when you put in the 7.3 , so don't worry about the haters. Call Trever at WFO and you will be set on the high steer. They have six holes in the event you would up grade. Looks great dude, keep up the good work.

Not really, the fronts fit great, the last ~8" of the rear fender flare has a bump out for the Ford body line, I just used a strip I cut off a mud flap as a spacer/filler strip. The smaller flares that I mocked up first could just be screwed in with out distorting too much, but the larger flares twisted too much, so I added the filler strip and it came out pretty well IMHO.

Leave them out in the sun to get warm and they get pretty flexible, I used a heat gun to form the bottom edge where they overlapped on the rock slider.

I've made some pretty good progress over the last few months, I was gone to Ft Bragg, NC for most of June for work. The end of May, I got my Dana 60 front installed, finished up the fender flares, and a few other odds and ends. When I got back from Ft Bragg, I pulled the hard top and installed a bikini top, now the Scout is ready for summer! I took the Scout over to the alignment shop friday morning, it was great to drive.

I finally got an appointment for my recon inspection on July 18th, wish me luck! Once that's done, I'll be legal...
(Disregard the lawn edging added to the fender flares...it's temporary)

Then off to get painted

So after driving the Scout all last week, my Autometer gauges are working great, but the Ford cluster is still not working It's about 13-14 miles each way to work, and rough guess on MPG is ~17-18mpg, I'd like to break 20MPG. Original F250 gearing was 3.55 w/~29" tire, I have 4.10s and 37's so it's geared pretty low.

I did have some body sway issues, the rear Bronco II springs were really soft. I added 3 additional leaves from a Ford Ranger, and that seemed to help. I also ordered up a set of Currie Anti-Rock Swaybars. I got the rear one installed and it made a significant improvement to reduce body sway/lean/roll.
