theres parts of my frame that look like that that i have to fix every time i save up for my lift kit i have to spend the money on other parts, ball joints, wheel bearings, spindle bearings, front rotors. next is quarter panels, and inner fender wells. after that is a tail gate, both rear hat channels/ rear body mounts, floor pan body mounts all rotted out grrr why did i buy this rusty peice of bronco.

Ok, I have to ask... What part of your Bronco was that in the picture? Whatever it was, I gotta say it's ADR. Aint Doing Right!
