With the .250 wall tubing and the fact that the legs are ran through the frame to the cross member I'd say that they will be pretty damn strong... if not, thats what windows are for.

Turned out well. Great idea running the mounts through the frame for the sliders.

Ok...time for an update.

I went a little heavier and laser cut the new fender-wells from 14 gauge steel plate. They got bent across to the vertex points at 50 degrees. I had some small plates cut from 14 gauge as well to tie the bed supports into the fender-wells for strength.

Here is one of the fender-wells after welding, it just needs a little cleanup with the grinder, some seam sealer, and some paint.

Now I have the other side to do

I also decided to extend the cross-member fish plates a little to tie in the front mounting legs on the rock sliders, and to add some strength in that area.

Here is how they will be extended:

I also decided that I wanted some type of d-ring or clevis shackle setup mounted to the front and rear axles for towing, etc.

I picked up these d-rings and tacked them in...didn't really like them for a few reasons, so I ended up cutting them off.

My other solution...

I modeled up some clevis shackle mounts that had the profile of the spring perches in them, these would be welded in to the spring perches since the perches are 0.375" steel. My buddy had them CNC cut with an OA torch out of 1" steel plate. Here they are after being cut and a little cleanup with the sanding disk:

Here are the front and rear clevis shackle mounts after being tacked in. I think these are the better option since the clevis shackles can be removed and they don't sacrifice clearance to the axle...a little more integrated.

The mounting bracket that came with the PSC Rockwell kit was to wide for the Scout II frame. Here is the replacement I designed, laser cut, and had bent.

Also pictured is the PSC load-reactive orbital valve, the new mount, steering column, and the Borgeson steering joints. I used this assembly to locate and tack the mount in place.

Here is the intercooler I got, it's a Mishimoto z-line which is a small intercooler...I couldn't fit a much larger intercooler without some major modifications which at this point I didn't want to make.

It should work ok for the application since I'll just be using the Scout for crawling, if I have some EGT problems I'll probably add a methanol/water injection system to keep it in check.

These are the intercooler mounts I designed after being laser cut. They were cut from 10 gauge steel.

So after I put the SS Grill on I decided it wasn't Bad Ass enough and designed this new SS Grill with iron crossed breather holes to get more air flow. I also integrated a high flow electric fan that is inset into the grill. The grill also has internal copper refrigerant lines that run to a condenser in the rear that cools my kegarater in the center console.
You sir, keep brining it! This Scout is becoming the Scout to reign all Scouts! Awesome work, keep it up!

I pulled the tarp off the other day to do some work on the left rear fender...I thought you guys might like these pictures a little better, you can actually see the whole Scout.

It's getting close to being ready to drop the Cummins and the rest of the drivetrain in.

Looks like it may sit a bit low in the front once you put that C in it?

Ok, time for an update...

As you probably know by now the engine going in this beast is a '95 12V, mods are as follows: #10 fuel plate, Pacbrake 4GSK, 2095 Rack Plug, Pacbrake 60lb HD Valve Springs, KDP Killed, ARP 12mm head studs, AFC mods and tuning, 17* timing, 181 DV's, Marine 370 Injectors, He351VGT turbocharger, BD Diesel 3-piece exhaust manifold, custom intake horn, cable fuel shut off, Raptor 150 Fuel Pump, Tork Tek OFV60HP Valve, and some other misc stuff. I will probably add H20/Meth Injection in the future.

Pictured below are some of the parts used in the Cummins build:

One of the big restrictions on the OEM intake system was the intake horn, in the picture below you can see the necked down section of the factory part, this creates a pretty big flow restriction.

So I laser cut a flange, and found a piece of 16 gauge 3.00" OD mandrel bent tube, with a 180* bend. I cut the tube in half and used a section from one of the legs to widen it out. Tony gas welded it back together and I blended it out with a sanding disk. We also used a bead roller to create a hump in the end of the intake horn to keep the boot on under boost pressure. I also added two 1/8" NPT ports into the intake horn; one for a boost gauge, and the other for a water/meth injection system.

Here is the KDP tab which was laser cut from stainless steel, I used some red Loctite on the new bolt.
