Hey guys. i just bought a 78 scout II from my girlfriend for $500. its got a 345 automatic dana 44s(at least im pretty damn sure)

i drove it home and the tranny was pouring out oil so i borrowed my girls truck and towed it the rest of the way. changed the tranny oil filter and the pan gasket and its been perfect.

i drove it again and got an electrical fire but i fixed it right away and luckily nothin was too majorly burnt.

I am new to scouts but have always loved them. im not so new to wheelin though. ive had a 90 SAS toyota, and a 88 YJ.

Basically im jsut say whats up? and getting to know the scout. i dont have a recent pic but this is what it looked like before my girlfriend stripped the paint like an idiot.



awhile ago i stumbled across a site that sold a quarter elliptical suspension kit for scout IIs...anyone know this site?

If you're wanting to dump a bunch of the OEM junk on it and mod it, read the FAQ here and search/read a LOT before asking a bunch of dumbass questions.

If you're wanting to keep it pretty stockish, then go to www.binderbulletin.org and ask all the dumbass questions you want. They like that. :laughing::laughing:

I think the 1/4 elliptic build you're refering to is Project 2 (TC) on my extreme buildups
http://www.dandcextreme.com/extremebuildups.asp

Although that scout worked great, I no longer support the 1/4 elliptic suspensions, not only are they expensive (springs) to do right, but the mounts are very tricky and not very adjustable without getting new springs (expensive). I LOVE coils though. They're MUCH cheaper and you can really fine-tune your hieght and spring rate. Better on the road (driving manners) as well.

Take a look at the Link conversion kits we're doing now. Here's the prototype

Here's the kit in final form.

Several guys here on the POR board have done coils before, so search and enjoy. If you have any questions, let us know.

It does have a purpose, that's why we send people there. And no, I don't go there "just to check things out". We have all moved past that stage, anything we want to know is here.

Welcome to Pirate, Ass Hat. Surely you didn't join just to post that. Not a good start. Talking shit on your first post isn't the thing to do dumb fawk. I agree that BB has it's purpose I also am a member there and that is where my build thread is, but who are you to come in here on your first post and bitch because someone is bashing something : Which I think Mechanos was actually letting the OP know early on that bolt on mods and stupid questions don't get you far here: FawK OFF!!!!!:mad3:
