So.. to all other scout owners, what do you drive, and what mods do you have?
'79 ScoutII, 345, straight pipes, 727 auto with high stall convertor, D44 axles with 4:56 gears, rust.
That IH D60 rear, is it the same width as a Scout II axle? Are the axle shafts hard to find? I presume it's a six bolt wheel?Originally posted by 61Scout:
1961 Scout 80. tired 304,loose 727,leaky Dana 20.
GM Dana 44 front, IH D60 rear. 36x12.50 swampers
No, its a full floater, 8-lug. 64" wide (5" wider than Scout II), 30 spline shafts, out of a 2wd 3/4 ton. They are fairly common, I saw at least 4 of them in one wrecking yard.Originally posted by lars:

That's a good question - and there are hundreds of answers!Originally posted by 61Scout:
How should a 4x4 really be built?
Nah... CJ owners just take a bit of the best from a bunch of different 4x4'sMost people probably think a built Scout should ultimately end up with a CJ7/8 tub on it.
At least, that's what the CJ owners seem to do, even if they don't *say it*
Precisely why my race Scout II is the way it is. I couldn't find the Scout parts I wanted.. so I still catch flak for having a Chevy pickup front axle with a Ford F150 rotor/hub combination under "Little Devil"Originally posted by jeeponrock:
In my case it's a Chev motor and tranny, Jeep transfer case, Dodge rear axle, chev and scout front axle, and the odd Ford part as well....
I could have used all Jeep parts (401, T18, Dana 20, Dana 60 front, Dana 70 rear, etc) but that stuff is even harder to find than rust free Scouts
