Hey guys I've been debating forever on which of my trucks to make into a trail rig. Not sure if I want to keep it street legal or not just need to decide which one to build first.
So here's the rigs up for building:
1990 Ford Bronco 302 E4OD w/ 75,000 on rebuilt motor, 2 1/2" lift 33x12.50r15 MTRs, custom front bumper and sliders
Plans for this one: 44 SAS out of any 70s model 100 or Bronco. Total 7" lift, 36x13.50 Iroks and 4.56s, lunchbox up front spool rear(depending on funds). More protection/armor. Possibly 6 point cage?
And the other one:
1989 Jeep Cherokee 175,000 miles 4.oL I6, 5 speed, 5" lift 31s and new steelies.
Plans for this one: Newer dana 30 up front out of a 97+ 4 cyl. with 4.10s. Rear w/ Dana 35 or 8.25 with 4.10s and locker. Newer transfer case. Probably leave the lift maybe upgrade the coils but I will put new Rusty's LCAs and UCAs. RE track bar. Total 5" lift with 3" coils and 2" spacers up front and 3" AAL and 1 3/4" block out back. Custom front, rear bumpers and sliders. Possibly a EXO cage tied in with bumpers and sliders. Trimmed fenders and 35x12.50 BFG MTs or Pro Comp XMTs.
All of this depending on funds after graduation.
At least tell me which one yall think would make a cheaper and better trail rig in the long run.
