This is my third complete custom frame up rig so this time I'm gonna take my time and do it right

Plus, I'm goin a little old school - This baby is gonna take a wax shine and be something I can appreciate wether I am on the trail or parked at work

I don't think I have done an update in a looong time.

I also got DOM 2"x.135 wall tubing for the shackles in the frame, but every 3 months my projects get put on hold for 3 months practically untill I pass my engineering test.

Anyway, once I clear this rig outa my garage I can get back to the one on my sideyard. Next step finish diffs and then mount engine/tranny. Then rip it all back apart and make it bling bling with paint etc

A month later and I still haven't finished the diffs

I did pick up my tranny finally - C6 auto. The wife is taking the kids outa town next weekend so I can work on my junk. If anyone knows anything about setting up gears/arb's pizza n beer is on me

I'm hoping to finish the diffs and make it a rolling chassis again so I can put it in my garage.. hoping that is..

Nothing will be really "mounted" but I hope to get it in place so I can start fabbing hangers and mounts etc.



I need to go buy some hangers and perches, stopped by S&H here in town and all I can say is R I P O F F

I will never go back there, they were OVER twice the price of even 4wheel parts! I like to help the little guy but that's plain nuts..

I just had to quote this, nearly a year ago and I still haven't done what I wanted to get done that weekend

Project sure has changed though

If you don't want it, PM me the details! You know that a 75 would give you more family room!

We are small people I just dig the old style body more but if this one runs and I can drive it from Monterey home I'll take it. It won't be my builder - just a driver.

Will do - I've been trying to get a pic from them, my wife will be visiting in the area this weekend so I'll have her check it out. All I know is it is a '75 and they used to drive it all the time. Definately not the type to do any modifications to it so I am sure it is fully stock.

Let's see, a stock or mildly built pre-smog SII as a DD, plus a built Scout 80/800 for a wheeler. Sounds familiar.

I like the looks (and departure angles) of the older style more myself. Being able to fold/tumble the rear seat and carry TWO D44s AND a 14 Bolt FF sure is cool however! Gotta have both!


Out of curiosity, it's not orange with a white top is it?

I'll have a fold and tumble seat from a jeep in my 63', but those axle just might have to hang on the tailgate a bit

Are the SII's pretty much all V8's? I don't think this one is a diesel but I haven't gotten in touch with the owners to see what it really is. I'll post a pic when I get one, no idea what color it is..

For '75 it could have an N/A Nissan I6 Diesel (rare), 196 I4 (also kinda rare in SIIs), a 304A V8, or a 2V 345A V8. Used four barrel manifolds are available. V8s are by far the most common. Tranny would be a T15 three speed,T19 four speed (close or wide ratio), or a 727TF juice box. The TC could be a cable shifted aluminum IH built POS single speed TC143, or the thankfully much more common D20. If there's a TC stick on the floor then it should have a D20.

I'll give you a single stick D20 for it if you buy the rig (and it has a TC143). The axles will be D44s front and rear with front discs. It'll have a 6200Lbs GVWR as IH upped the capacity in '75 to fit into the less restrictive emissions and safety requirements.

The orange/white color question was just me being a smartass...

Look at my avatar.

Not in '75-'80 Scout IIs...

Regarding SIIs, they were used '71-'74. The 232 was used until '72 or so when the 258 replaced it. Most of the RHD postal Scout IIs appear to have used these engines with autos (B/W autos and 727TFs). The 196 (the IC version) became the 'economy' engine for the SIIs from '75 on.

Funny thing is, I've got TWO of those Scouts as parts donors. One's a '73 and the other's a '74. Both have T18 four speeds. I've never seen a running Scout II with this combo. The '73 had a tossed rod (auxiliary access hole) and the '74 had a blown head gasket...

The bell housing from these can be used to swap an AMC V8 into a Scout/Scout II. I'm selling one of mine to a Scouter in Az. I'm gonna keep the other bell in case I ever decide to swap a 401 into a SII...

Bling, Bling...

I know you built your toy, but I recommend you read BB build up (https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=407953) which I'm sure you already have.

I've been thinking more about his cage vs my cage, & now your cage.
Have the toy, your used to space issues, but I think you could get by with the front pillar in th cab.
I'd strongly recommend that when you do the middle pillars (B?), that they attach either to the bed behind the bulkhead.
Either on the floor, or above where the tanks used to be (or are).

I'm not a fan of "exo" cages, esp since most of the time my rig will be topless. I got rid of my halfcab top too - that was the point of getting a scout, not to have a truck..

So.. I have my full top and then there will be no top. I definately need a cage fo sure, but it's gonna be a full family cage aka safari style. I haven't read that update in a while - gonna go cruise it now..

As far as drivetrain goes all I need is a tcase (dreamin.. but hopin atlas 4sp..), flexplate, torque converter, and then I'll need my old drivelines modified but otherwise I am good.

Interior wise I need the cage, I plan on using the stock steering wheel/dash/seats and I have a fold n tumble rear seat so basically I got it all, just need to clean it all up.

Suspension wise I have all I need, just need to get er done.

Wiring and electrical wise I have what I need for the engine but I do need to get a full replacement wiring harness for the body.

Cooling wise I have the alluminum radiator allready, just need a good tranny cooler since there isn't one build into the rad.

Steering wise I have the sag "jeep style" box to mount to my frame, I'm going to need the drag link redone length wise but can just sleeve it temporarily.

My axles are in pieces but I have everything from the new gears and arbs to the new arb compressor etc. I need to put in a timesert for the 44 since the bearing cap threads are fubar but that's not THAT big of a deal.

Bottom line, I need to get to work..

What Tranny are you going with again?
I know you sold off your Toy stuff...

I'd go doubler.... 203/205 or 203/D300...

There is also the new Stak 2 speed box for $2k.

He's running a SB C6 juicebox. A certain Eccentric Binderhead around here has already tried to convince Brandon to run a Ford NP203 range box in front of a Jeep D300...

I haven't ruled a doubler out and really the tcase is the last thing on my list, it will be otherwise done before that. I have a tcase now that came with my C6 that will allow me to work out all the other bugs in 2wd till I can sell my first born for a replacement tcase

I am making one of those home made benders right now so I will attempt to build my own cage most likely. As soon as I get over the "setting up gears n arb's" hurdle the project should start getting momentum again..

When it comes time to build the cage, talk to Joel Kelsey (Scout Dude) for ideas. I bought mine from him. It was bent, but just tack welded.

He's also built 2 buggies with his bender.
