I have a friend who has a 78 Scout II. He got sick of fighting with it and bought a Montero. He told me he was going to GIVE it to a friend so his friend could pull the Dana 44's out and put them in his Jeep. The rest of the truck would get scrapped. I hate to see an old truck die, so I offered to find his friend some axles if I could have the Scout. How hard would it be to find some 74-80 Dana 44's that would fit under a jeep, and can I get them for less than 300 bucks? The Scout has bad brakes, old suspension, and the steering needs work, 4 different wheels and tires, lots of rust. It's running a 304. The guy uses it for his DD, so it's driveable, but he says it's kinda scary. I told my wife I'd ditch the top, paint it pink and put some decent wheels on it and she could use it. I think that is why she said we could get it, as long as I could find these axles. I did find a donor truck, it has no drive train, but the lady wants 300 for it. I'd have to pull the Axles, give them to his friend and then dispose of the ladies old Scout. Help me out here guys, should I, or Shouldn't I? I'm also looking at an 82 Caddy Deville this weekend that basically being GIVEN to me, so I might have a used car lot for a driveway here by next week.
