Yeah don't want to narrow it at all. 67.5" out back is perfect with a 69" front. Pulled the axles they look good. Pulled the cover, and it's an open 4.10. So I'll need a new carrier and some 4.88s.That's a great price. You can put c&c hubs on it later if you need to narrow it some.
Yup TMR order I want to place is near $1k, 14 bolt forged 1350 yolk, 13 bolt shave kit, GM brake mounts, pinion guard... Then still need gears and a carrier...LOL .. we've all been there - done that ... haha ... and of course I return and do it again and again ...
Heck that would be awesome!OK .. diff topic for a second .. I am working on poster for this year's car/truck show we are putting on.. I wanted to get a couple of IH and/or real people's vehicles on it. I thought of your Scout for one of the 'rad' vehicles .. it fits the requirements for a Midlife Crisis Truck/Car as its pre 1981 (40+ vehicle).. if you are OK with that then I'll use it.. it won't be a photo but rather a posterized image from one of your photos (more cartoon 2D colors less 3D sharp glossy image)..thanks.

It may need new hubs they're pretty salted lol.
Disc brake conversion is easy I've already got the calipers and rotors, just need weld on brackets.
* Actually just read there are easy bolt on brackets.
Haha that's the plan much to my wife's hinderance...Just depends on how wide do you want to end up. I have wide axles like that under my Scout and I've always wanted more like 65 front 63 rear. Mostly because I like the look up deep-dish wheels like you have now over the hi backspace wheels I have to run to pull the tires back under the body some. Now if you're going to move up to really huge tires like 40s or bigger then sticking out farther doesn't ruin the proportions so much. But to do that you need to cut the sheet metal back. A lot.
I'm not on Insta .. and its going to be doctored so no worries.. thanks again.Many good photos on my Instagram too
Looks mega beef!
Going to go with ruffstuff or Barnes 3 hole anti-wrap perches.Looking forward to this it's been forever since BP had a big tire build. Didn't I tell you to find a 14 bolt like a year ago though. lol. Are you going to weld the tubes? Rock Tactics has some cool low profile perches.
Nice pics, Lars!
