Little time at work so figured I would start a build thread. I don't know when I first found Scouts, but I have been obsessed with them for about the past 5 or so years. About 3 years ago I decided it was time to start looking, and have browsed until finally hitting the right combo of finding one and being ready this summer. The plan is to have it for weekend cruising, tailgating for football and hopefully some hunting/fishing. Wouldn't mind basic offroading but not my main focus. Huge shoutout to the Scoutman in Douglasville, GA, they have been great to work with on this. I went there to check out some scouts, and they had the traveler which is now mine. It was originally an Idaho truck, minimal rust for a Scout and in great shape. It had a new carb, ran well, and after a test drive I was sold. Original picture from first looking at it. Original Interior: After buying it I had all the brakes redone, a roll bar & seat belts installed, few things cleaned up and was ready to roll. Got it home and instantly swapped out the mirror heads to chrome ones and added some new tires as the current ones were a little old for my comfort, wanted KO2's but couldn't find any, happy with the general grabbers I got now. Since having it I drove it around Atlanta a bit and the first thing to be addressed was the metal floors. In my TJ I'm used to hot floors on longer drives, but it has some carpet to help.So putting something to help out the AC was needed for comfort just from driving it around and on longer trips. Back to the scoutman for some lizzard skin, and had the retrosound put in at the same time. I also got the trim added on and the center console put on. Here is the new interior which is a huge improvement imo, the heat is all but gone. Very impressed with the lizzard skin/carpet combo. This weekend the driver door was rolling up a little stiff, so took it apart and hit it with some white lithium grease, now have a much easier job. Here is after I got everything buttoned back up and it all fit the same way as before luckily enough. Current plan is to grab a tailgate for when the top is off, and drive it for a while. Seat recovering is next on my list of to-dos, but the covers will be okay for now. Really excited to drive it more and enjoy it! I'm hoping to do more work on it myself, I got the factory manuals and have worked on my Wrangler, so this forum has been a big help even with the little I've looked into.
