Re: 1978 Scout II
First thing I'd recommend you do is address all of the stuff that needs attention before spending time and $ on mods that could accentuate the problems a 25+ year old vehicle may have.
In otherwords, check and if neccessary replace, things like the rag joint (steering coupler), ball joints, tie rod and drag link ends, bearings, ujoints, brakes, leaky seals, etc...
Thowing a lift kit, lockers, etc... on a vehicle before taking care of the basics will bring out any problems the vehicle may have and multiply them.
Once the foundation is deemed solid, start building.
