Great looking trucks! It's been raining for my part of Nebraska lol... I really wanna take my top off but have not yet. That "top" you have, is that a basic cover top for most pick-up trucks?

Bronco Graveyard offers one that looks like the original top. Been thinking about getting one.

Yeah, it's nothing. Bunch of kids who have never truly off-roaded. :'(

On another note, ran into a guy with an insane lifted white Bronco at Autozone today, he lives 3 minutes away from me lmao.

He says everyone goes to Tuddle Creek or something in Kansas. :/

Maybe someday have a roadtrip. :/

Sound's fun, but I care for my truck too much to get it screwed up like that lol...

I did get my truck stuck last night though. Three trucks, a Escalade, 2500 Diesel Chevy and a huge Diesel Dodge had no luck getting me out. Had to get it towed out... It's hard to tell but the right of the Bronco, where my right side is, is all drop off, by about 2-3ft, I checked... >_<








I learned my lesson....

BIGGER TIRES AND A LIFT KIT! :P

(For the record, I made it through the first time, when my girlfriend was with me I got stuck. )

Hey thanks. I guess I use the term "Lincoln Area" loosely, anything within an hours drive of Lincoln qualifies. And I'd go few hours if it was the best (And cheapest) shop around.

Waiting for a reply back from my friend...

Try Craigslist as well. :)

http://lincoln.craigslist.org/aos/

Personally, I have done all that I can myself and with help from friends, I get my welding done at this little place called "Aribba" or sometihng like that where illegal aliens get blow torches and saws under my truck. Truth be told, I've only gone there once but still...

What type of engine work do you need done?

I picked up a 96 with a 5.8L and I'm going to do a complete engine rebuild later this year. I don't have any experience rebuilding engines and as much as I want to do it myself, I'm slightly concerned that I might get in over my head. So if I can find a reasonably priced shop around, I might have them do the long block assembly.

Who knows. I'd really like to do it myself. Maybe I'll quit being a pansy and just go for it.

I follow you... Chilton and Haynes manuals are pretty handy, they can walk you through alot. Good luck finding a shop! I'd volunteer my services if I could help but frankly, I'd just sit there and watch, while giving you smart alecky remarks about the girl walking her dog down your neighborhood...

Though, I want to rebuild my 302 someday, when I collect the parts I want. I'll be doing that myself. :/

WOOT! What color is your Bronco?

I wave at a red one often, nor reply...

I knew the guy with a lifted white one but he moved...

I ran across a guy in a blue one with a bunch of lawn mower stuff too, he and I both had our Bronco tops off...

What color is your Bronco?

Look for my red&white!
