I think those pics are of when he first got it.It's a good base to start with. Hopefully he also posts some pics of progress over the two years.

lets try this agian, got it home in the garage and started deconstrution of the bronco. first off with the top,and gut the interior so i could pull the body off the frame and do some clean up and paint and decide what i don't need.



after removing the top i cut the brace off above the side window and installed across the top to reinforce the top and give me something to bend a lip down from to mach the sides.

i spent a couple of days with a grinder and wire wheel to clean up frame and finished takeing everything off so i had just a bare frame. Once completted i set body back on made my own body lift from 2'' pipe and flat plate
flipped rear leafs around to extend wheelbase. pushed front axle forward so now it sit's at 101'' . picked up a ford 9" and dana 44 from a 1979 ford f-150 for $300.00 not a bad buy but there open diff's with 3:50 geers and full time hubs

next i ordered coils from rusty's offroad for a xj with a 8.5 lift and fabricated coil buckets to match the hight of rear. and i set rear by flipping the springs around and welding new saddles on after setting the pitch for the rear axle.

got the body back on everything hooked up and running so next i fabricated front and rear bumpers that would take a little abuse on the rocks. i used 1/4''x6'' flat for the top and face and used 3/16'' x 4'' for bottom on both front and rear. push bar is 2''x2''x3/16'' .
