WOW that's a lot of bodywork chopping and sectioning fender, narrowed hood, ect. It's gonna suck the first time you smash one into a tree/rock

your right, but that would suck any way . Building it is 90% of the fun.... the other half is wheeling

hey dan, i have a 15" 8 lug beadlock wheel at my house. we could mount that 38 on and you could test fit that. you might have to take the caliper off so the wheel clears.

It will still look good smashed too. I like how it keeps the fender profile, at some point you would just have a buggy and that's fine, but looks like he wants something that looks like the original Scout.

Sectioned instead of lifted - like mine in the rear

I will tackle mine in the front eventually, what do you plan on doing to tie the front in there, chop the grill or something?

Sat. rockthedog and mangler came over and helped out. We hacked and tacked the right side fender and stretched the wheelbase even more. Now its at 110.5". We will need to work on cutting the back to get the tires to fit.

Looks

Any plans yet what you're going to do for the rear? From the pic, I think it'd be awesome if you figured out a way to ''shift'' the whole wheel well back to above the tire/basically the edge of the tub. I have NO Skills for this though (you do I can see, just may take too long), my vision would be basically the opposite of bobbing the rear. You'd be adding however many inches in front of the well, and shifting it back, effictively moving the whole well to the end of the tub, but keeping the somewhat stock body lines in tact.

MS paint pics to come, I suck at explaining what's in my head

Blue=sheet metal/body looking somewhat stock. Red=new wheel well shape, black=undercarrage, no sheet metal. Looks good in my head
