    Names Justin, been wheeling for years. Grew up in Buena Vista, CO. Combining my CJ-7 and 62 Scout to haul the family around. Hopefully I'll be back BV in a month or two to try it out with my Dad and brother. Just saying HI.

    Welcome :) Got pics of the project? Always a challenge to morph two different rigs together!

    My avatar is the latest pic of it. It's not that bad, that's only 5 1/2 days worth of work. All that is left is half of the steering, master cyl., fuel tank, seats, wiring and the cage. I figure about a weeks worth of work.

    Wiring could take a week :)

    Which Scout model is that? (old eyes, fuzzy avatar ;) )

    1962 Scout 80. As for the wiring, at my current job I have wired numerous police cars in a week. a 62 scout is pretty dang basic. As for the avatar, its a crappy cell phone picture. Top half is scout, bottom half 86' CJ-7 with a AMC 360, NP 435, dana 300, and dana 60s with 4.88 gears, capped off with hummer beadlocks and 37's.
