I think I have the same bumper without the brush guard. Just need to find a winch for it at a reasonable price.

Yep,I am winchless. I could kick myself in the junk for not puling one at my friends tow yard a few months back. It was missing a couple parts but it would have been free

It is a runner again. I got tired of chasing the leaking freeze plug game so I pulled the engine and put in one of my spares. I also swapped in my 1 tons and am going to put these SOA Dana 44's in rocktractors dd. We moved the engine back and made room for an electric fan. My to-do list is getting pretty short to get this on the road.

I have been trying to finish all the small things now. Here are some random shots of how it sits now. I swapped out the narrow stock springs to some 4" Chevy front leaves. I was able to move my axle back 1 1/2" so I could use my stock rear shaft without having to cut it down. I moved the drivetrain back 2.5" to make room for the lincoln electric fan. With it up on stands I can start it put it in gear and the tires spin, which is a good sign. I need to bleed the brakes and finish the steering so I can take it for a spin around the house.

Reverse was not working in the tranny, so I guess it is a good thing I am a pack rat and had 2 spares in the garage. I got the "new" one in and started up the Scout and ran it through the gears. This one seems fine.

Any reason why you didn't switch to a rs setup when you did the spring swap? Just curious.

I had to pull the tranny and swap it out, so that slowed my process just a bit. I am hoping to drive it around the yard this week. And, I do al my own welding.

Not that it needed to be done, but I was given some pimp stainless struts so I mounted 1 to the hood. Scout hoods are dumb because they can only be lowered from the passenger side to release the latch. Now I can close it from either side.

I forgot about them to tell you the truth. Were they factory buckets with bases?

No bases, they are buckets vinyl covered, but not factory. They look to be out of an older big car. They came in my Scout, the guy took out the factory buckets and put them in there. Since he still had the factory buckets I put those back in.
