78 Scout II

I'm getting a '78 Scout II! 345Ci V8, 3.07:1 gears. I will want to lift it soon and do some other mods. What would be some quick and easy mods to start with?

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.

Good luck.

No offense to anyone who spends time on this site, but you should check out the Binder Bulletin Home Page for tons of information.
