    What length was the Terra Scout?

    Am looking @ a project build and was told that scout frames were all boxed. One less thing to have to do.
    Know that the Terra scout had a wheel base of 118 that will work for the project but what was the total length of the Terras?
    Will all the crazy after market scout parts out there the project will be easy if I can use a Scout frame

    Yeah they have a boxed frame. I went out and measured the Terra sitting in my back yard it is 182" long and 66" wide.

    You had your chance Trav. That's the one I ended up getting in August and have been working on since ( Project: Banana Slug ). There is/was a lot more work to getting it running than it looked like.

    Policing for profit is a violation of every principle of justice.

    The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." G.K. Chesterton

    “The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” Adolf Hitler

    I wish IH was still building Scouts. From what I understand, they quit when the gov't started mandating all kinds of equipment for "cars" that is not required on trucks, so they decided to stick with trucks that were less hassle.
