hello to all

I just wanted to say hey to my fellow IH Lovers!


i am new to the web site, but deffinately not new to IH. I may only be 19, but my dad and my grand father both had Internationals...and I am following in their footsteps.

I do have one question. I am thinkg about lifting my Scout 800a...not too sure how to go about it. I would lioke to get in about 4-6 inches...any ideas?

Thanx to all!

I didn't see the secondond down load. But that's a great looking truck on the outside. Not too many of those around in that shape.

Re: hello to all

I would lift it but dont go too extreme. just get new springs at 2" of lift, and do a 1-2" body lift. you could probably fit 31's and you should be able to run those with no issues on a scout. my 76 scout II ran 31's with no lift and just a bit of fender trimming.
