Mob Steel Bronco

Anyone see the History channel show Mob Steel? The had a two part program on building a Bronco for Jeff Trapp (owner of BroncoGraveyard).

I was flipping around and caught the tail end of the first episode.
didn't seem very organized and I didn't particularly care for the lift/tire combo.
was almost afraid to see what they would come up with tearing all back apart to start over.

Jeffs sent out an Email about it and included a youtube link to a clip from the show. I watch all of Jeffs new product videos on youtube so im used to seeing their little showroom and listening to Jeffs monotone voice

There was one clip in the video that struck me, they showed a bunch of shelves that had TONS of FSB hardtops stacked one ontop of the other. Makes me wonder what all Jeffs has laying around up there, I wish I lived closer.

it's an NBC property channel, so we're not going to just find it up on youtube.

I stand corrected on the YouTube comment but not as impressed with the end results as I'd hoped.

I honestly dig the wood "trim", I don't know if I'd have picked orange as the main body color though. Oh, and those wheels should be illegal

I watch the show all the time (I watch most of the car shows on TV) and was excited when I seen they were doing a bronco, but didn't like either one they did.
