Re: SCOUT INFO

I havent really had any major mechanical problems with either of my scouts. They were well built with good parts.

With the exception of the engine (some had the AMC 258, also used in jeeps) and body, most of the parts on them are the same or a variation of those used in other common trucks.

Of course, with inadequate maintainance any vehicle can become unreliable.

Re: SCOUT INFO

They've got their own quirks like everything else, but they are tough rigs. Parts are a little harder to find than with say a Jeep, but they can be found. They were built to take a beating though. Only really common thing to Scouts is rust.
