Default Jamie's Diesel Scout II

We started doing some work on Jamie's 1978 Nissan diesel powered Scout back in January of 2010. This Scout started as a non-turbo powered diesel with stock suspension. We started initially with some suspension work as the current suspension had seen better days and will start the build here.

Here's the Scout in its stock form sitting on jack stands prior to the tear down.



As you can see the suspension was in sad shape with a broken main leaf spring.



Next the leaf spring were removed both front and rear.





Followed by the front spring hangers as a reverse shackle kit is going to be installed.







A lay out of the parts to be installed. We have 2.5" Rough Country leaf springs, CPT reverse shackle kit, CPT SUA Ubolt plate kit w/ 5/8" ubolts and some real smooth riding Bilstein shocks.



We always start the install of our reverse shackle kits by first assembling the front spring hangers.




This makes installation much easier and more accurate.

The front hangers are welded in and leaf springs installed.



Once installed everything is painted.





While we had the rear axle apart we fixed a issue known well to these Scout's and that is a bent axle housing.



An alignment bar is inserted thru the housing using the center line of the mock carrier bearings.



The end of the axle housing is cut off and then welded back on in order to put everything back on center.



With the housing straightened out it was reassembled and installed back in along with the new springs and shocks.



Here's the Scout with it's new upgraded suspension.

Then in July Jamie brought the Scout back up for another round of upgrades. The front bumper had a winch mount and guard added to it.



On-board air was installed.







Rocksliders, corner guards and a custom rear bumper were fabricated as well.





ARB's and lower axle gears were installed.





Here's the rear tire carrier all decked out with spare tire, gas can, hi-lift jack, chainsaw and license plate holder/light.



Looking real good with all it's new bumpers and sliders!

In the first picture you can see how the bumper was originally. We cut the top hoop off of it and then added in the new hoop and winch mount. Otherwise yes we could make another one. If interested please call for a quote.

A few weeks ago jaime brought the Scout back to us for another round of upgrades. He also brought us this beautifully rebuilt sd33t Nissan turbo diesel to put in place of the aging naturally aspirated one that had racked up many a mile.



These engines come with new injector pumps and turbo and are full of oil as they have been test ran before being shipped.



The Scout was pulled into place and the swap began.





After a few hours the old power plant was hanging from the hoist.



With the new replacement engine nearby all needed parts were transferred from the old engine to the new.



With the parts transferred over the engine was readied for install.



Up and over!



And all bolted in!
