The CTIs are nice and the line speed is a little more than my Zeon. But for as much as I actually use my winch I couldn't see spending the extra money. I have the Zeon 10s and love it. Very happy with my purchase.

Gunner My very first off road experience was at Anza Borrego for a huge get together, Every thing from Dune Buggys to ConFer Toyotas were running. I was in a really plush Scout. We went everywhere. Must have been about 74 or 75. That Scout was quite the ride. I remember the Chuckawalla Jeep Club was there with all their Cad/Chevy/Olds powered Jeeps. It was a blast.

WOKNROX Rick every year for the past 19 years Scouts West holds the "International Harvester Western Regionals" Calico day's event in April.
They run all the trails in Calico and last year for the first time it was expanded to Stoddard Wells. This is a great event and Scout people are a great bunch.
This is an event we go to every year...lots of fun.

I'll tell him about the engine. I keep bugging him to get it running. He's taking forever with it.

A few years ago (I think 2012) when WF had the Calico M&G there was also a Scout gathering there too. Pretty cool.

I came across a picture the other day of my dad and I when I was in the 3rd grade in the ol Scout crossing Deep Creek (long before the bridge) on are way to Holcomb Valley via Dishpan 3N34. .Oh the good ol day's
We only went to Oso Flaco, and Pismo. Both areas are right down the hill from my dads house. It was when you just took a dirt road from the front door, there. Now it's a paved road and goes through a golf course

It's funny I never think much of the Scout, then your picture jarred my memory. Dad's buddy Jerry Albertson had a white Scout, I remember that now too, lol. Back when we went to Pismo no one was there, no flags were required. We came over the top of a dune and Jerry was backing up, smash! We hit Scouts, lol. They hooked up a strap and towed Dad home. Drinking Coors the entire way

I have been a Scout guy all my life. I grew up on the trails in Big Bear in my dad's 73 Scout II. I have a few of my own also.
Great rigs!
Here's a picture of my wife's baby.. 78 Scout II with a 345 V8 automatic D300 TC D44's f/r with AC...top has never been off and currently has 104 thousand miles on the clock.
I sent him a text. I think it's 70's.

He's been tinkering with it for 5+ years and thought it was almost done, and it was messed up. He had a shop do something with the motor and I'm thinking the pistons were wrong or something to that effect.

Either one will drag the jeep with the brakes on so it is a moot point I guess. So do I go for looks or efficiency? Oh yeah the Zeon is 400 bucks cheaper.
You probably know where I stand. Buy used and don't pay taxes.

Go with the best bang for your buck. The one that meets your needs. No one will care how pretty it is.

That would be Manzanar Serg and while your in that area you could check out The Alabama Hills, it was where most of the early westerns were filmed. Hell the first Iron Man had 2 sets in the area and I got to see them both, it was cool seeing the area in the movie.

Never heard of it. On Google looks like a memorable place.

Gunner I haven't run it but I bet you will get a bunch of answers in the morning.
