Do the "fold down windshield" mod..... just make sure you're sitting as tall as you can when you make the mod.

Dude, I dig it, even with the stock axles. Its not a serious wheeler, but any 800 lifted is better than a scout II.

Don't worry about these guys ~ And don't try to impress them ~ it just stirs them up more! Haven't you been to high school? Well welcome back. Just be happy with what you have, and do what you can to do it right. Expect to redo things over and over until you get the results you want ~ by then, you'll be one of the group here and people will still give you a hard time.

The 14B FF, yes. A 10 bolt (even in the 8 lug flavor) is no where near a 1 ton axle. Hell, it's barely a 1/2 ton axle.

But if it makes you feel better, that's what I've got under my Scout 80. Anything is an improvement over the D27.

The spring/detent ball section of the shaft is slipping.

Options are easiest to hardest:

1- Buggy cord the lever when in low.

2-Pull the nut holding the ball/spring in the shaft... Clean ball/stretch or replace spring.

3-Dis-Assemble case, pull shifting shaft & clean it.... If worn (ie notch is too smooth) use a grinder to make a slightly better notch.

Ima thinkin that there frontend will last longer without that there front bumper!


You sure your shifter lever isn't hitting the body when the rig flexes a bit knocking it out of low range?


EDIT: Where can i get a custom carb spacer like yours?

Comanche

I have been into Scout for over 25 years. I have a very built 73 Scout II. I also have two Comanches. I bought the second one for a parts truck until I saw the Scout in person and discovered gold paint under a bad red paint job (it did protect it though!). I agree that ltd. edition vehicles should be restored to stock - in this case, there were only 1500 max. built. You will greatly reduce the value of this Scout if you alter it and will lose some history in doing so. However, it is your truck and obviously you can do what you want. Less true Comanches out there makes mine worth more.The other thing is that these sites should not be forums to be nasty etc. We all like Scouts and while we may not agree on what each of us does to our Scouts, civility is the language of gentlemen. I would be interested in the wheels on your Comanche since my second lost them along the way.

With all civility this thread is over three years old, please check the dates and read the FAQ. If you still need wheels shoot me a PM I have a couple sets or can point you to a vendor that has them.......... Have a WONDERFUL DAY ......... Search Binder he has a Aristocrat that I'm sure you could buy if the price were right
