• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Colorad Body Swap


Big thanks to IH Parts America for taking on my build up this last winter!
Total body and frame replacement
total wiring replaced
total suspension replacement.
Special thanks to daren for removing every bolt, nut, washer, and wire and reassembling every bolt, nut, washer, and wire that is in a Scout II.
Fantastic craftsman ship !

Fellas, I just turned over 2,500 miles on the "new" Scout and it drives better than a dream. Straight as an arrow at 90 mph and much much smoother on the 4x4 trails

Thank you so much logan for the kind words. We hope you get many enjoyable years from your rebuilt Scout!


After a few months in the paint shop my Scout project is about over. My wife picked out the colors, pearl copper on the body and pearl white on the top.

Thank you again IH Parts America !!




That is a great looking Scout. It's good to hear how good it runs and drives. It looked a little rusty before.

Are those 33/1050r15 tires?

As always it was great seeing you and Tara last weekend. Thank you again for sharing your pictures with us.


Scout looks great! Looks like you got a new truck during the process too! Seams like there is lots of Scouts in the Denver area but I don't see them very often.
Those are some tremendous pics! Love the Scout. Awesome color combo. I have slides of me and my brother and family camping/cruising the Ouray/Telluride area ca. 1975 in our Scout. I'll have to dig through the folks' slides to find those shots.
Awesome job man!


hey fellas,

scout is still doing good, other then a fouled spark plug.
