Thanks!!
my scout as of right now is a buggy, I cannot drive it legally on the road. I miss having a trail rig. my coils and 3 link setup works great. but i like the simplicity of leafs

chris fresh yeah that rear mount is basically just a mock up, it's made outta 3 1/6 plate and some 1 1/4 box i had layin around, i know exactly what i want and how to make it, just don't have the tool, i have a good guy at a local machine shop that could fab one for me, but at 50 an hour, i don't wanna own the worlds most expensive 2nd crossmember bracket, it's definitly recomended to run a second support for the second case, and yeah to aswer yer ? the bolts are a little longer than stock, all bolts on the truck are grade 8

Brandon is that an 80 windshield?
08-03-2006 08:10 PM
ChiScouter Chris those are some great pics. Did you have to do anything but use longer bolts to install that rear mount in front of the retainer?

Hos, Ruben, or anyone else if your looking at that and drooling check out my ad in the classifieds....everything but the adapter

chris fresh reuben i'm runnin 3'' wrangler lift springs up from and stock f-40 rear springs,they were free and a freind ran the same set up
same tires and rims
same axles and they worked realy well. they will do for now, but eventualy i'm goin 4 link front and rear
freind of mine just won 4 bilstein 9100 external resivior shocks from a kid in a poker game and has no use for them so i traded the shocks for a 150 dollar gas grill and he's happy as can be.....................can you say sweeeeettt!!!!
i will never try and have smart freinds again.LOL

chris fresh my 203 was bolted to the 400 trans and wasn't the problem, once you lose the whole rest of that huge case. my 205 would have hug down if i didn't have jed clock the adapter brack to rol the 205 up
08-03-2006 06:24 PM
Brandon sometimes people flip the 203 or lay it flat, just curious if you did that but I guess yours is just like mine.

thx
08-03-2006 06:09 PM
chris fresh brandon, yes it's clocked but it's the 205 or whatever case that gets clocked, guy asked me if i would like the rotated option and i said yeah, it gets the bottom of the case flat
08-03-2006 06:05 PM

for reference I still need to add my 300 behind my 203, not sure if I will have to cut out the back yet or not. Ordered my adapter today



Clean build, how about some overall pics?? Is your 203 "clocked"?
08-03-2006 05:56 PM
Snoopy Oh my, that isn't that clean scout you had a big ago is it?

chris fresh new tail gate
08-03-2006 05:04 PM
chris fresh yeah mike, i've done all the metal work over the last year, completely new rear floors from tail gate to front seats all out of one peice of 14 gauge, yeah no seems, had a buddy bend it up in his brake,kinda tricky to do but do-able and the front floors are the same 14 gauge the frame work under the rear floor is all new made out of 1 1/4 11 gauge tube, the tailgate was completely rotted except for the stamped scout part,so i cut it out and made a new frame for it, now it's a swing out
it never ends
theres always somethin to do
08-03-2006 04:58 PM
chris fresh sorry H.O.S the price was 720 for everything shipped
08-03-2006 03:51 PM
MochaMike Do to rust & my 465/D18 I had to do the same..





I'll be swapping a doubler in this winter, so we'll see where it goes from there.

PS... Seats tied into the cage was pretty easy...
