Strength of different year scout frame and axles
We have been looking at using a scout frame and axles for a custom jeep project. How strong are the different scout frames. We were looking more at the 1974 and newer scout II's having 44 axles and power front disk brakes.
Does any one have any ideas about something to watch out for or how they will work with a small block chevy engine an trans and a lift. What are the wheelbases of the older models like the 80's or 800's or are they not something we should even look at for our project. We plan to use as much as we can, basically just swapping bodies, motor, and trans.
Thanks, any ideas or comments
