    well just thought i'd throw this out there :D



    I've done several mod's but this one is my favorite one at this time. :D I cut out whatever rust is in the rear floor. rebuild the rear mounts. then I place 14 gauge diamond plate in. man it looks nice. I'll do pics later.

    feel free to share or whatever you gotta do.

    If this needs moved then move it :D

    my favorite mod to date is putting a terra top on my scout II. its freakin sweet: quieter, warmer in the winter, speaker holes in the sides and its easier to take off in the summer.... i love it :cool:

    Everything I have done to it!!
    It has carried me to more places and countries then most people can even dream of!!!
    And it brought me back home at the end of each trip!!

    By the time I return next year, she will have earned a well deserved spot in a warm garage for another make over!!!

    And I may have to find me a 1960 travelall to use while she is down!!! ;)

    Hydro-boost is the best in my mind, but the new paint does look good. ;)

    I would have to say the Jeep tailshaft on the 727 coupled to a 4-1 Dana 300 case. Nothing better then going from a T-case pattern with little to no aftermarket support to the pattern and case that has all the aftermarket support. In my mind if you are rebuilding a 727, it's the best thing you can do for it.

    Second on the list would be the ARB.

    1. Swapping axles to disc brakes in front & better gearing
    2. Ignitor & MSD box
    3. Digital gauge setup that will be done next week, it will be nice to have accurate gauges that are not blocked by the steering wheel :D

    Just about everything I have done so far I am happy with. It keeps changing too :D
    SOA rear, 4.09's, front locker, total re-design of rusted out rear bed area and floor (gives it that utility look), winch, Bronco center console, huge tranny cooler, petronix, blah,blah, blah..

    ~STILL looking for advice on mounting radiator ;)

    Peace,

    1) My welded 14 bolt rear for bomb proof reliability. I may drive sideways through ruts and snow but at least it is still driving. :p

    2) 36" tires!

    best mod, hmm. well I would have to say removing major parts so it can not drive out of the garage and having to go beat the heck out of someone else's rig instead :D Honestly the underdrive unit and dana 60's. you can't go wrong with gearing and beefy parts, umm maybe the air horn also.

    Easy for me. Swapping the T19 close and D20 for a T19 wide and a D300 on the Terra. I will probably see the same change when I go from the 3.73s to 4.56 some day. Control through gearing is a beautiful thing. :cool:

    I gutted all the carpet and had the Traveler Line X'd. That made it easy on the inside. As for how it runs I'm happy with the full AFI kit and MSD6A add ons.
