Thx man. It def takes patience working with sheetmetal. I thought of doing the bronco flares which woulda been much easier, but it was one characteristic of the Scout I didnít want to alter

subbed. I can't support the idea of it towing since it's got a 6 foot wheelbase, but it'll look good trying if nothing else!

Yup. This is not a wheeling rig per say...more of a DD hot rod with crawler attributes since thatís what Iím used to building. If in the future I decide to or I sell it the only thing itíll really need is heims instead of bushings, lockers, re-geared and possibly 35 spline rear shafts.

Yeah, Iíll see how towing a buggy goes. Itíll make me keep it light for sure. Itíll have the power, but the wheelbase (even stretched) will be interesting 🤪

Good luck, I know people who have broke rear 60s on pavement and getting firewood.

It's just so easy to grab a 14b, D70 or sterling and be done.

I looked at all those options....all were too wide. The Sterling woulda been my 2nd choice, but the ID of the Sterlingís are oval and theyíre more work than I was willing to do for shortening one side. If I donít plan on crawling it the idea of a heavier axle doesnít make sense to me. I know ppl that can break a steel ball in a rubber room, but Iíd think anyone with good sense can make a trussed d60 rear survive on the street lol

A stock C&C 14b is 63" Wide, how narrow do you want?

That was my 2nd choice behind the sterling actually. I just felt like for the trucks intended use it was kinda a waste to go that large. Now if my plan was to thrash on it in the rocks it woulda no question on the 14B. Iím not disagreeing with you, I just felt going that large was outside the parameters for what Iím doing with it.

A shaved 14b has more clearance than a D60

I'll drop it, I guess. Best of luck.

I decided not to use the stock core support even though I built everything for it to fit. 1/8” thick aluminum panels will run from the firewall forward.

This is the best way to mount the grill I could think of and it will give me something to mount the radiator from as well.

Nice work stretching/keeping the Scout wheel arches, I wish I had kept the Scout wheel arches on mine.

I went back and forth many times looking at your build also. I like the high cut fender look, but just couldnít bring myself to do it in the end.

Thank you for serving by the way

Got my winch plate made and welded on the front. This is the start of the shell that will slide over the front. I’m going out on the outside of the frame with more steel, just haven’t decided how I want to do it yet.

Also got my different coils for the rear which look much better than the last guess. New ones are 8” x 300#

I hate bumpers that stick way out and take away from the truck and all you see is a huge bumper. I sunk my winch plate back in there so everything’s nice and tight. The shell is made from 1/8” plate with lots of gussets on the back side

Got some cage work done. Debating bringing it out the back of the half cab and building it in 2 sections when I want to run a full cage without the top.

It's a Jeep LJ (Mercedes) box. I thought it would give me the best flow at speed because I didn't want the delay in steering you get from going hydro assist. From the research I did, these boxes do not like being tapped for assist.

Interesting thought. I assume you have had hydro assist before and had lag in response?

Reason I ask is because I have zero lag at speed, idle, etc. with assist. This is all with standard canned ham GM pump, rebuilt box that I tapped, and a pretty old ram.
