    There is a story on MSN this morning about a guy building a scout2 for the SEMA show. To each their own as this is not in any way my cup of tea. Check it out.

    I posted a comment to his video on Youtube about how stupid it looks with those retard wheels. But it only has those wheels as Hostile Sponsored his build to bring it to SEMA so basically im assuming he had to do as they said if they were footing some of the Bill.

    SEMA is overflowing with those useless bro rigs. Personally I don't get it. All that money and the suspension design is crap let alone being safe or reliable.
    Love the high clearance front driveshaft though. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I agree 100% but these vehicles (cars, motorcycles, trucks, etc) are not designed typically to be drivers, they are designed to sell products.

    Ugh. Just awful. It's always the wheels. Every ridiculous build has the absolute worst wheels!!!

    "Hostile Forged". I agree it IS a forgery trying to pass itself off as a Scout. That said however, to each their own.

    I don't know about you all, but it doesn't look like it would handle that well on the highway.

    I Dont think it would handle well at all. Especially with those wheels. On top of that the 5 bolt to 8 bolt adapters on a dana 30....

    I don’t ever plan to go to SEMA. Just don’t like the abstraction from the purity of a classic rig. To each their own, yes. But art is art, regardless of the canvass. My issue is that many of these vehicles do not display the expression of art and the complementary assignment of color, material, and shape in any recognizable way. Rather the contrary.

    Think that has been posted on here before. Have this urge to pick it up and twist everything off below the rockers.

    I'll probably never own a "Ricer", a "Donk", a "Low-Rider", or a "Rat-Rod", but it doesn't stop me from appreciating the care, effort, and passion the owners have imparted into their rigs. I'd hope that "those guys" would give me some cred for doing what I do on my old binder...

    BTW, the F350 on the Hostile website makes this Scout look absolutely pedestrian... To each his/her own.

    Now where did I put those chrome truk-nutz… Mike

    My main complaint is the links are extremely undersized. I know it won't get used much but damn, I bet those would fold like a straw in any accident or with any torque/traction/power...

    SEMA= Specialty Equipment Marketing Association. They sell stuff, so none of that should surprise anyone. They are not likely to make much off the average old school binder driver. Had to call Hagerty the other day to put insurance on an old 61 truck. Had to laugh when they asked me if I lowered it and how much the stereo system was worth. Guess I am getting old.

    SEMA used to show decent truck/4x4 build-ups 20+ years ago. Since then, we've 'progressed' to build-ups like the featured vehicle of this thread...
