The driver side perch is cut off and either moved over or replaced. The passenger side gets a new hole drilled in the casting right next to the old hole. Both sides most be moved equally or as close to otherwise your axle will be offset to one side or the other.

Also noticed a big difference in the under the hood temp, you can actually feel the heat coming out the louvers when you put your hand over them. The reduced heat also makes it nicer in the cab, before these latest mods it felt like the heater was on all the time, especially when the side vents were open. Now when the vents are open you can actually feel cool air coming in. Added a new SSII grill (from IHPartsAmerica) while I was at it.


I dont suppose you have a pic of the underside of the hood with the 3 new holes in it? Im interested in the concept but dont want to cut the integrity out of the large size heavy hood. Did the scoop go over the spot where the "o" is in the middle of the hood or did you have to weld in new bracing? Thanks-

this is one sick truck, well done

I will snap a couple of pics of the underside of the hood tomorrow and post them, but the hole was cut out right where the "o" is under the hood so the integrity of the hood is not jepordized.

If you were refering to the front bumper, it's a warn bumper that came off a Jeep. It had to be modified, but has worked pretty good even with the winch.

How does this SOA lift handle on the road or the highway? By going with the wider differentials did this give you a lot better stability and control in normal road driving conditions? I am looking at doing the very same thing, but I am listening to a lot of negetivity about doing an SOA lift. I currently have a 4" suspension lift, 1-1/2" shackle lift and a 3" body lift, but I am looking to go a litle bt higher and would like to eliminate the body lift. What do you think and any suggestions? Thanks

The truck handles really well even with bias boggers. Yes being wider makes the truck very stable both offroad and on. If you are planning to do a lot of offroading I would recommend SOA, but if you're not going to be offroad much then stay spring under. I ran a 3 inch bodylift and 4 inch springs on another Scout and it handled like crap, SOA was 100% better. Hope that helps

What lift springs were used for the axle swap?

Was the wheel base stretched?

Or are the front rs fangs installed in the recommended location (flush with the front cross member)?
