As a customer having a vintage Scout modernized by IH Parts America I could not be happier. As with all major projects, this vehicle rebuild ran into cost overruns and delivery delays. However, those are easily overlooked when you look at the quality of the final product. This Scout is a dream to own and drive. Every detail was attended to and handled by Jeff, Chad, Darren and the guys. Trust me there is nothing but the body on this vehicle that is not new and each item was replaced or refurbished down to the knobs on the dash. The 40 plus year old Scout was delivered in near to flawless condition. It was like picking up a new vehicle off the lot (only better). I would recommend the incredible staff at IH Parts America to do anything from changing oil to a 100% rebuild. All I did was give them my concept and some cash and they built and delivered my dream Scout. Thanks IH Parts America!

The fuel tank is out of a Jeep. What year and type I couldn't tell you as it was something we picked out of a catalog from one of our suppliers. We have not tried a Scout II 19 gallon in a Scout 80 or 800 so I can't give you any advice on that one.

This is a great looking Scout. Does IH parts sell the center console that is in there or where to find one?

Yes we do sell the center console seen in this build. We don't stock them as they do come in a couple different colors and sizes. Best to call our sales office with your particular needs and one of our staff will get you a current price.

As a note this Scout has hit 3500 miles, pulled the airstream without an issue and is surprisingly capable off road. Great work guys.

Love the build, I'm doing something similr and had a couple questions. Perhaps I missed it but which axles did you end up using, what are the specs on tires/wheels, and what's the mileage been after the conversion?


I have a 63 80 that I'm building up for my son and am still on the fence concerning lift height/style to fit 33x10.50's and which axles I'm going to run.

Thanks!

Jeff, great looking build! I am using a 700r4 with a Jeep Dana 300 in my 1980 Scout project and was wondering if you recall the diameter and wall thickness of the front drive shaft you used on this project. It is a tight fit to the tranny pan but I know it can be done. There is a pretty good pic of the one you used in this build. Is it one you made or was it sourced out to a different shop?

Thanks justin

We had it built and I believe it was 1.25" tube. Probably .065" wall thickness but am not 100% sure on that.

Just out of curiosity, how much does a build like this cost?

Were the original d27's kept?

We, for obvious customer privacy issues never divulge the cost of a build.

No, if you scroll through the photos you will see that it is a Dana 44 in the rear and a disc brake Dana 30 in the front.
