    Looks spot on to me. I guess we should have put some snow plow mounts on the bumper!

    At least that way Jamie could run over his own mailbox and not have to wait for the county to do it for him!

    I found out the Dana 60 makes a good plow.
    You should have seen how much was on there before I put it in the garage overnight. Basically from the shackles down it was a big snowball. The garage was a little wet when I pulled the scout out to take these pics in the am.

    So the beast has had to pull duty as a tractor lately. It has gotten quite the work out at the new property as we clean it up. It has moved several large trees and pulled out dozens of smaller ones. As we declutter the place.

    Nice to see the rig getting used - looks like you are going to have a real barn burner of a bonfire - break out the marshmallows and hot dogs!!

    Are you still up in Indiana or have you now ventured back down to the Southeast?

    Had quite a bit of burning going on and will continue to for a while. Haha.
    Still up here in Indiana. Wife dug her heals in, and short of leaving half of my stuff I'm not able to leave. But did find some acreage right in the heart of where we want to be. So I grabbed it up quick as I could and we now started the clean up phase. Next the building phase. Yeah.

    So not too much new done to the scout lately. But a while ago did have the engine pulled, cleaned resealed and Hamilton injection put on it. She’s pretty happy. Just hop in and go. Nothing but routine maintenance for the last several years.

    Forgot. I did have the steering wheel rewrapped in leather and a new clutch put in as well as all the engine work.
