    Yes there is a fiberglass tub available.
    A lot of 1980 Scouts have a Dana 300 transfer case and they sell around $400 to $500 they also have a front end that has added two degrees castor.
    So if these parts are still there it is worth it in parts...

      Ok, well here is what I know, already mentioned is that the fiberglass tub is available but very pricey and I'm not sure honestly how one would hold up to daily driving.

      The axles should both be Dana 44 with disk up front and the already mentioned 2 degree caster. The transfer case is either a D300 or D20, there is identification info on the new board, not sure about this one. Like already mentioned if the axles and transfer case are still there and it is a D300 it is worth it in those parts alone.

      Hope this helps
