Most guys are aspiring to ditch the leaves in favor of coils, why is it that you are talking about going the other way? Please share the wisdom for those of us that assume coils are better but haven't gone there yet. I.e. save us the effort if it's not in it for us.

|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|
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

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|
sometimes people flip the 203 or lay it flat, just curious if you did that but I guess yours is just like mine.
|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|

new inner fender wells
i've owned clean trucks, this one was a disaster 3 years ago
|08-03-2006 06:02 PM|
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?|
|08-03-2006 05:55 PM|
the build is great, I am picking up a 800 this weekend to build. 350/400/203/205
HP 60 front 14 bolt rear. 44"tsl's. my buggy is coming apart this winter to build more of a trail rig. what springs are you running? I was thinking of 44044 front and rear and getting rid of my coils.

|chris fresh||new tail gate|
|08-03-2006 05:04 PM|
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|
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...
