Secret Snow Scout

Ok here's a first look at a Scout I have been working on for a while to be a winter wheeler. Story is the fellow that had it, had 3/4 ton axles under it and then wanted to build a larger rig for a growing family. So he pulled the axles and sold it to me for 1200.00 bones. Stats as I bought it were, rebuilt 345, headers, t-19 wide dana 20 with a three to one kit, 3" body liftIt had the axles removed and I had a set of CUCV axles (D60 frt and 14 bolt with a Detroit locker) in my stash for just such a need The Scout was cut good for 38"s, I cut the shit out of it for 40"s with the only lift comming from SOA. The Scout had a cage in it but I reworked it to fit a terra top The cage has the sides by the dash made from some heavy plate, I think I read about one of the venders doing this so the door are more funtional. I had a truck from work we were converting back to gas so I robbed the 25 gal tank for the back of the Scout should fit nicely between the trailer fenders I just installed for wheel tubs. Plans are to run 40"s with not much lift to handle snow wheeling (rev limiter and point, stomp the skinny pedal). Flame on heres your first look.

Here's the tubs I came up with, they are the largest trailer fenders I could get. 53 bucks and then a plaz and welder good deal, should have no issues with the tire clearance thing. I still need to spray the tubs with paint or bedliner junk.

This Scout came from Tex. no rust, I thought it was to bad it was cut sooo much. I cut it way more to insure tire will clear. here's the roll cage set up.

Last for now the traction bar I came up with, I know that cobbing the skinny pedal with 40" tires will kill the springs

Id like to see some pics of what you end up doing with the radiator support, looks like it will be a low rider.....relatively speaking

I like it. You will like the terra top in the winter. MUCH WARMER!! I've been rocking mine for 4-5 winter season and even my wife is warm enough when we hit the snow.

My build is gonna be a lot like this - wide, low, point and shoot.

Come on Ugly I been doing Terra tops for a while Check my SSII, Chi the guy that had the Scout looks like he redrilled the radiator mounting straps. I am taking out the body lift so I will be reworking the mounts. I have a Radiator Shop here in town so I will get that right anyway Check out the hood hinges in the first picture, Gate hinges very gay but I am thinking about a pinch on the nose.

You'll need more than a little trimming - unless your springs are so stiff you don't have to lower your bump stops a mile.

Those wheels will never work I suggest you ship them to me right away, I will give you what you paid for them because I am a nice guy and want to help

Seriously though, what a great score. Was it a one shot deal or do you have a line on more?

If you have a line on more please let me know.

The SNOwscoUT is looking good.
