78 Scout

I can get my hands on a 78 Scout w/Dana 44 front and rear both equipped with Lock Rites for about $600. Any recommendations?

Re: 78 Scout

yeah, buy it and bring it down to me next time you come so I can have the axles [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], I think that falls into the right years for the passenger side diffs and the good 44's, buy it if my sister will let you [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Seriously though, the $600 doesn't sound like a bad deal, you might be able to make that back by parting out the rest of the Scout, depending on the shape its in.

Re: 78 Scout

Hey, if y'all are interested in a Scout axle, I've still got a front D-44 from a 79 that's willing to go to a new home, sooner-the-better. How's today sound [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

My Scout is like my website, I'm working on it. 79 IH ScoutII, Anything else is just a 4X4... 345, 1-ton axles, Detroits F/R. 99 F-350 SD, PowerStroke.
