Shoes are on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

35x12.5x16 mickey thompson baja radial mtz's
16x8 mickey thompson classic locks 4" bs

pics aren't amazing but they're all I've got right now











Rear wheel well opening. Front is to the right. There will be more clearance when the new shackles are installed. The tire also pushes to the rear (left in the picture) so clearance shouldn't be an issue. Full stuff is not an option with this tire choice though.



Here's a couple shots of the wheels:

Appreciate all the thumbs up.

It's been awhile since I've updated mostly because I haven't had a ton of time to work on the truck lately.

Stuff that's been completed since last update:
- installed dash, gauges, switches, and wired all gauges and switches.
- wired steering column
- installed new greaseable drag link
- installed, sanded, and painted tie rod with new greasable ends.
- installed bogsen steering joint.

Here's a couple pics of the few things that have been finished:

dash with new auto meter gauges





New ron francis switches



Tie rod and drag link pics:











Bogsen steering joint

Truck went in for exhaust today. I will be running stock manifolds, 2.5" stainless pipe, magnaflow cat, flowmaster 50 series delta flow with dual 2" out, and 3" chrome tips dumping out behind tires. Should be done tomorrow. I will upload pics when done. Should have this truck running and driving in the next couple weeks.

Pics tell the story but it's a magnaflow y 2.5" out into magnaflow cat 2.5" out into flowmaster with dual 2" out. The y is after the crossmember. Pretty sure that the factory joint/y pipe happens right as the pipes meet up as the passenger pipe makes it's final bend towards the rear. Had to stay single muffler with cat due to smog restrictions. Also don't like the unbalanced look of one tailpipe. I am slightly disappointed because the exhaust guy didn't mandrel bend the pipes. I just assumed that he would since he said that they use "all the latest technology". Just another instance of me not asking the right questions before hand even though I knew what I wanted. Another lesson learned.





Man I can't stand these cell phone pics.

Ahh forgot about the emission stuff. Here in rural Colorado our national past time is make it louder. Looks clean though. Bet it gives it a nice throaty sound. One good lookin Scout.

So basically since he didnt do mandrel bends you're still gonna get that restricted flow instead of that nice reduced backpressure. Bummer

Boring post but more progress nonetheless. Just more cleaned, sanded, and painted parts. I will be looking to fire the truck up this weekend. If I'm lucky I can take my first ride in it. Excluding steering it onto the flatbed the day I bought it.

I like the attention to the details you have given this build. As I start to prepare to restore my newly aquired Scout I look to builds like yours for inspiration. Great job. I am excited for you as you are so close to putting the rubber to the road.

Started up the truck yesterday. She started up on the first crank which is a good sign that I have wired everything correctly. Engine has already been broken in by the builder. It is running pretty rough at idle. I will need to get it timed, make sure there are no vacuum leaks, and re-seal the upper water tube on the drivers side. It is leaking a bit. The temp gauge went to 250 and it didn't seem that any water was running through the upper radiator hose. I believe this means that my thermostat isn't opening. Other than that all seems well for now.
