There was nothing that was not gone through or rebuilt on this Scout.Pretty much everything inside and out... the differentials, motor, transmission, transfer case you name it... it is all brand new or rebuilt.Four-wheel disc power brakes, electric parking brake. Custom front bumper with built in electric remote control winch, off-road LED lights, rear bumper custom with full size spare and backup camera. There is too much to list... this is an over-the-top frame-off restoration that was completed buy Silverback custom Works of Springfield Ohio and was presented at the 27th annual Scout Nationals and received six Awards in the Great American Build-Off challenge.There was a lot of money and a lot of time put into this project. You asked me is this Scout perfect? No its not perfect there is a few minor paint flaws and a few minor Body Waves and on a scale of 1 to 10I would probably rate it about an 8 or even a little better.. You will be hard-pressed to find one as nice as this with all the custom features. You will never see another one like it it's one of a kind. And if you were to try to build one apples for apples you're looking at 6 months to a year hard labor and probably somewhere north of 80 grand. You can pick this one up ready to rock and roll for less than that. I'm not making any money here.I haven't driven it very much it only has 152 miles on it.... its not even broken in good yet. It's been parked in storage for the last several months because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it and it is way too nice to take out off-roading at least I didn't have the heart to do it ... lol I didn't want to mess up the drivetrain get it dirty and messy with rock chips or anything like that... but I will tell you this it's fun to drive and this Scout definitely turns lots of heads. The Scout has a clean Texas Title but has not been registered or tagged so whoever gets it will register and tag it for the first time since the custom restoration.This is a pick up item only no shipping unless other arrangements are made with the buyer.
