Yes and no. I threw it up for sale but I am in NO hurry to sell it. I have a new job now and i work crazy hours. I wouldn't mind something better on gas but thats not the only reason. With this job I just wont have the time for it. The last 8 days I worked, I logged 120 hours. Like I said, I am in NO hurry to sell it, but if the right offer came along I would sell it. Its also nice to know how much it is worth if I really ever did need to sell it. I still plan on working on it/ building it now that I have some money. I get the next 2 days off and I need to change the oil at the least.

Sounded like your butt puckered for a min. there Ryan, lol.

I'll admit I cringed a little when I read that. I even looked it up to see if I would be interested in buying it..................until I saw the price

I was enjoying the build and hope it continues.

I set the price to what the scout it worth to me. It would probably never sell at that price, but its nice to see what people are willing to pay for it. I don't want to sell it now after seeing Brandon's pics of him in the Con the last 2 days (even though he had problems). It reminds me of why I started this build and drives me further to finish it.

Made some progress the last 2 days. Finally picked up some 4.11 gears for the rear. Have to go pick up the carrier from a friend. Did an oil change, installed rear shims to help the pinion angle, and picked up some materials for front and rear bumpers. I picked up two pieces that are about a little over 4 feet, and a a little scrap that are 4x2x188





Now I need to have them welded on.....

Here are the cell phone pics. Still needs some touch up and the rear needs more bracing. I think I want to add more to the front to protect the body on the sides, but it works for now. I like how it turned out. Thanks again Brandon.

Here are some from today with a better camera. I still think the front looks like it is missing something. What do you guys think? Keep the front short like that or bring it out to protect the body more?

A few days ago I was on my way over to Brandon's house and heard an interesting noise. Found out that my throwout bearing was making a little noise. Left Brandon's after a little while and a few beers, (thanks again Brandon) drove to my cousins house about 5 miles away and by time I got there the bearing was screaming. Parked it, pulled the trans and found that the throwout bearing had exploded. I had no choice but to go on the hunt for a new clutch kit. The only place in town where I could find a kit that wasn't a special order was Capitol Clutch & Brake. While everything was being replaced, I also had my flywheel resurfaced. Good thing I did, it was warped pretty bad. Got the parts to the Scout and then I found that my clutch fork was cracked on both tips. I had to wait another day to get a new clutch fork, then the new parts and the trans went in. I didn't have a transmission jack so we improvised. We used a bar from a bench press, strapped the transmission to it, then lifted it into place. It worked pretty well. The Scout is now back on the road and the new clutch feels 10x better than the old. Snapped a few pics during the process.

Jerm, the bumpers look good, 'cept for that huge gap from the body lift. When you going to ditch that body lift? You don't need it any more, you've got plenty of suspension to clear those tires, now, and it will make your "Bronco" look 10X better.

I would love to ditch the body lift now if I could. Unfortunately with the sm420 it will have to stay, unless I do a lot of firewall and trans cover modifications. That or I drop the whole motor and trans down in the frame which isn't a bad idea either. The top of the trans where the shifter attaches is about 1" away from the trans cover. I think if i went with a turbo 400 it would solve a lot of the clearance issues that are there as well. I have a few options but haven't decided which to take. Since I just replaced the clutch I will prob keep the sm420 until either it blows or I need to replace the clutch again. If you guys have any ideas on how to drop the body down let me know. I hate body lifts on vehicles, but I would be happy with 2-3" compared to the 5-6 it has now. I can snap some pictures of the clearance issues that I see if you guys want to see what I am talking about.

I've seen em, but thanks
Seriously, you should get some sheet and some cutoff wheels. I'll bribe Brandon with some SNPA and we'll get all "monster garage" on your Bronco's firewall so you can lose the lift.

This is what I did to clearance my 465/205. The tranny cross member is level with the bottom of the frame rails.
