It's been a while, promise to get some wheeling pics soon. I'm going after tires today, and seriously considering putting my dana 300 in this scout....but I'm missing the automatic bull gear. Need help if anyone has one to sell.

Went and picked up some newish 38.5x15x16.5 boggers on very wide wheels, just need to trim more and find a set of H1 wheels.

I also redid the tailpipes as the scout was still a gas chamber going up the road, better now. Because racecar.

Also came up with this fix for the tiny rear wheelwels, stretched them 6" to the rear, just needs a coat of paint.

Some H1 rims should tuck in a little closer, the rear wheel well/fender trim/stretch looks good.

Minor progress, 3 steps back. I intended to go full high steer to clear the H1 rims, turns out the tie Rod runs through the oil pan, won't clear a truck pan either, think I'll runs spacers for now since there is an event I want to make this weekend. I got two tires mounted on my new rims, and got my f250 towers welded on, a lot more droop. I also took 5* of caster out of the spring perch to help the driveline angle.

Spartan Locker showed up in the mail, I wanted to try an Aussie Locker but couldn't find a Dana 60 version, oh well.

BTDT.

JetFxr had full high steer on the SnoScout when I bought it - it cleared the oil pan at rest, but you had to be going in a straight line when you hit a speed bump for the tie-rod to scrape the front of the pan on it's way up - any turning, and it smacked the pan.

Since the oil pump is right there, there isn't much room to gain..

I wound up with 1.5" .250" DOM tie-rod in the stock location.

The draglink with a long steering arm works fine.


On prior projects, I've raised the engine to provide more clearance - but you're still not gaining a ton that way, or you're really hurting your COG.

If you were to mount the tie-rod UNDER the high-steer arms, you'd get somewhere, but with leaf springs, that just moves the tie rod into the springs..

Mine was already 2" forward.

It may go a little further forward yet.. but 2" wasn't enough to let you stuff it and turn at the same time, at least with the high-steer arms that were on it at the time.

High Steer

Im just going to run the stock tie rod for now, the drag link hits the pan at full lock/compression, just enough to smear the paint on the front of the pan. with the tie rod up top it goes through the pan, dont think there is room for anything there. Ordered some wheel spacers to get me by until i figure out what to do, oh well. I have a large list of things to get done by Thursday evening, tie cage to frame/support the where the front body mount used to be, mount 2 more tires, weld the cage, install the spartan locker in the front, plate frame at steering box, ect.

did your front tire hit the fenders when you flexed? the radiator is rigid mounted the the body and would be the stiffest thing in the front to prevent the body from flexing.

Friday night went great, ran a pretty tough trail called "Corum" it did great. Saturday morning was rainy, friends wanted to run a easy and fun wet trail. I started having charging issues, but my blue top would run the scout about 45 minutes after 10 minutes with jumper cables, I planned to run out and grab an alternator. 30ft onto the easy trail I broke the transfercase (my fault). When I redid the spring perches, decreased camber and fixed pinion angle I never looked at the driveshaft length (feel like an idiot) but these thing happen when you rush I guess. So effectively the front driveshaft pushed the tcase off the back of the trans. I'm gathering parts now to build an IH 727 with 6 bolt round pattern and 23 splines to run a Jeep 300. That way I won't cry if I break it. No pics yet, it's still on the trailer.

Took out the case, not the extension housing, and the trans pan as well when the case bound up. It felt like a lot problems in a 1hr window. But no not everything.

Got a new tail housing and transfercase in the scout. Bought a Chinese all aluminum $160 ebay radiator, I've installed these in jeeps and was surprised they started making them for scouts, looks pretty good actually. Working on an electric fan setup, the 304 needs all the help it can get. In the process of picking up a new tail housing and transfercase I acqired a new 727 to attemp to swap a dodge tail shaft into and swap to a jeep Dana 300.

Also found 4 Chineseum LED rock lights on eBay for $43, for that price I figured if they last a year They will have paid for themselves, and if I smash them it's not the end of the world.
Had some shop koozis made up to hand out at events and such, I think they came out pretty good.

Rear driveshaft is fine, acts like a traction bar/bump stop all in one.

Evidently I need to build front driveshaft out of some smaller tube to prevent tranny pan interference. Low is nice an all but damn it's a lot more work.

I meant front... or which ever one was responsible for smashing your transfercase and output.

Stopped by winchester metals and bought tube to redo the driveshaft a smaller diameter. Shame since I just got the length dialed in on the other one.
