Im 16, going to be a junior in a couple of weeks at Topeka West High School. My uncle brought this up from arizona, no rust at all :). The engine has been replaced, the current one has close to 50k on it, the body about 180k. It has a new driveline and rear end. I do how ever need to service the transmission because on the way from being towed from arizona it popped into gear so just to be safe. I have thought about alot of possibliltys for the truck, im really excited about it. The engine sounds really healthy and im looking for a good exhaust system to put on there, im still in the process of looking and comparing. I also want to do of coarse different wheels with bigger tires, and maybe paint it down the road. I am mostly intrested in the offroad aspect of the bronco. So suspension and related things will also be considered. The carb also needs to be rebuilt but my dad and I are going to put a new holley 4 barrel on there. I work at Automotion so I get discounts on parts and maintainance, things like that. Like I said above there are alot of possibilitys to be thought of, if anyone has advice or knowledge on where I should start comments are appreciated. Thanks

**Edit** I have about 500$ in my pocket as of now to spend on aftermarket things.

thats cool, i know a few people that go to west..along w/ washburn rural, girls would be SRs at west, Stephanie Kendall is one? Im going to be a Sr. at Hays

you sound like u got a plan so thats good..have you ever heard of the Trail Krawlers club?It's a club based out of manhatten primarily..and they offroad at the Randolph park straight north of manhatten about 20 miles

go to Trail Krawlers

register there as well, lots of members, about 95% from KS, and theres about 5 fullsize broncos on there

they have an annual trail ride, the Kansas Krawl, its coming up september 18-19 i believe, they have courses for easy, mild, hard, expert, and then a medium course which is labeled fullsize, because it has less bends and stuff, easier for a truck to do

if you didnt have yours ready, or want to take it, you could see if anyone would be interested in letting you hitch a ride, most people will let people jump in and go with em

axavier here is from topeka as well, with a big lifted 78-79 truck..and may be going to the sept meet i believe? ud have to ask him

its good to see another kansas HS kid here, got any pics of your new bronco?

Welcome

Hello from Wichita, 1 1/2 weeks ago I'm driving my 88 Blazer II down I-35 (65 mph) and the motor went KABOOM. Parts everywhere. The crank broke. I owned it for 1 1/2 months.

I was a chevy man (owned 9 Corvettes) and now I'm a die hard Ford guy. I'm new to Bronco's. 2 days old and I'm loving it. I want to build it so I can run over sh!t. Lots of torque. It's great to have a crappy body that I don't have to worry about damaging.

Does anyone know where I can find a drop in 351w to replace my I6? I'll overhaul it later. Also looking for a 6" lift and monster wheels and tires.

I grew up on the farm and drove 4x4's and going out of my way to find a mud hole. I guess now I'm reliving my youth.

Did someone mention beer. Name the place and I'm there. Lets get some kind of mudfest going.

Oh ya, The Lightning hazes the tires at 65 mph.

You'll be hearing more from me.

Kevin

PS> I plan to attend Tuttle in Sept.

BTW: Lightningfest is one after Tuttle at Heartland Park.

Wichita has a couple of clubs. Wichita 4X4 Club meets at Fat Boyz on SE Blvd. There was a club called Ground Pounders also. You might contact Truck Stuff on N. Mosley to see if they are still around. If you like mud there is a central mud boggers assn. But I think that season is over for this year.

I'll try to find some links and post them up for you.

Welcome.

This is one link. http://www.wichita4x4club.com/

Here is another. http://www.cmba.homestead.com/Index.html

Has anyone heard of the Kansas Rocks Park located near Ft. Scott? KSRocksPark Kansas City 4-Wheel Drive Association?KC4WDA

I have a 92 Bronco which is now sitting in the garage. Owned it since 98. Lifted and geared in fall 2000. Not much wheeling over the last 4 years. I've got a D60 to install up front using Duff arms. I'm also going to a dual t-case setup with the Klune-V and a 205 (dual stick). Already have the Sterling in the rear, but there are lots of little gotta-dos: saginaw steering, 1-ton master cyl, redo tailgate, drop down tire carrier, integral belly pan, geared/locked, amongst them as most critical.

Got a few items on Ebay to help with the expenses.

Wow, seems to be quite a few from Wichita. I have been here for almost 7 years since retiring from the Navy. Bought an 81 XLT about 4 years ago, put a new engine in it, just lifted the body 3" and put on 33's. I use it mostly for hunting, but will be pulling the new boat with it next summer.
Let me know if someone comes through with the old town get together.
