Matt brought the Scout back for some more work. We installed a 1" body lift, a complete psc power steering system with hydraulic assist, and fabbed up a custom rear bumper with tire carrier.

Feel free to ask any questions.

The cheby front disc brake conversion... Is this a kit you offer? I like the "cheap n better" part.

Yes it is a kit that we offer for $799.95. The one thing you must have is 6 bolt knuckles(as opposed to the Scout's 8 bolt). So if you are planning a SOA be sure to use 6bolt flat top knuckles.

I guess you didn't look at the pictures as it clearly shows 5 studs.

Do the tires rub? How much did the 1" body lift help. Common internet talk is that you cant run 35's on a Scout without cutting fenders. I like the way this turned out and it doesnt look like you had to do any cutting.

Seeing that we built the rig and that it is currently here I will answer. Yes the tires do rub under full articulation. The fenders are not cut. 35" tires are really the maximum that will comfortably fit the stock wheel wells. I know the 37" tires on my own Scout like to eat the fender flares everytime I go to the rubicon.

IH Parts America recently acquired this vehicle and it is now for sale! We just completed the installation of a reconditioned 304, rebuilt the 727 automatic transmission with all B&M internals and resealed the transfer case. The radiator was rodded out as well. Runs like a champ and is currently registered until July, 2011.

This Scout has well over $25,000 invested in it and can be purchased for $12,500 or best offer.

Call Jeff @ IH Parts America for more details - 530-268-0864

Thank you Jeff. Why do you consider the 6 inch front shackles for off road use vehicles and the 5 inch for street use? Thanks

The longer the shackle plate the more travel the leafspring will have. Also it raises the suspension an additional 1/2". Street guys normally are not seeking lots of leafspring travel or lift.

Hey Jeff. I was reading up on this build as I am gonna go SOA probably this year. My question is how well do the 30+ yr old spring hold up to rock crawling? Did u re-condition/re-arch these springs in your build? Thx for your time. Do u sell replacement stock springs? Thanks for any and all input.
