That trail looks like fun too, wish I had somewhere to wheel like that.
Lol thanks. Well, I wouldnt say their made to tow alot. They just have increible amounts of torque and a bullet proof engine. You want a mudd boggin engine, there is no better.
Although, if anyone remembers my scout has had a few stages. Let me use picture reference....
Scout started as a whole vehicle. I couldnt obtain the correct carb so it never ran good on the 4 cyl engine. Also a torque tractor motor. Thats besides the point. Then also it had weak axles and suspension with what I wanted to do to it.
Then I got a hold of a traveall with heavy duty everything. Pre cursor to the suburban. Its basically a 3x4 ton truck. V8, divorced tranny/xfer case, d44 front and rear yadda yadda. Basically did a frame off with it from this
To (circle just shows rust)
Got my swampers
Took the body off the scout frame
