Well, this will probably be a slow build but I figured I’d get started on a write up. The plan is to shorten the frame of a 1992 dodge 250 to around 106” wheelbase. Then set the body of a 1975 Scout on it. The drive train will be dodge. Fuel injected 360, 241/205 doubler, Dana 60 front and 60 or 70 rear. The Scout first.

That's going to be great. Do you still have the green one?

Don't see nuthin' wrong with that thar enjineerin. Scary to think of the loads ol' cletus and jethro might have pulled with that in years past.

Finally getting some work done on this project! I'm so glad to be back working on my own stuff!!:icon_rotate::gringrin:

I removed the tail pipe and muffler, the radiator support and inner fenders! Also pulled the steering column. I killed a few wasps as well.

I cut a 20" section out of the frame.

Here it is welded back together. I still need to make some fish plates for it. The wheelbase now is 111":gringrin:
Attachment 27533
I removed the stock cross member for the transmission because it hung down almost 5" below the frame! I will be building a new one with much more clearance.

I do. I plan to use it to remove the body off the frame. Shouldn't need it for the top. (added Scout to the photo)
Attachment 27572
I got some good work done on the Scout! I traded my friend some work on his f150 for his help on the Scout. We got the roof, hood and front fenders off!!
