Default Andy's 75 Scout 250

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.

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

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 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)
