Sounds like you have been bit by the bronco bug like so many of us have.

Clocking the T-case.

I only clock the case 1 bolt hole, which gave me a 3 1/2" drop on the front yoke. Then I had to weld up 3 bolt holes and drill and tap 3 hole. The adapter brackets notch was rotated a little also. I also did the twin stick at the same time.
My twin stick handles are big block valve springs with crown nuts.

You're starting strong and I'd guess alot more to come. Let's see the others put up a strong showing.....
Thank you, Builder I just love the 78/79 years. And this bronco is just full of my back yard engineering. Some might like it and some might not.

So one big update, pulled off the Dual 5100s with ProComp coils, and switched over to 12" Bilstein 9100s Coilovers in the front with A 2" Air Bump. This allowed me to run longer periods without overheating shocks (I actually overheating one so much, the shock boot melted on).

This switch required a full suspension engine cage, also took the time to swap over to a Fiberglass hood.

Looking good.

As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he was talking about.

Hey guys! Sorry I have been missing a few days, work has been insane! But back to the competition!
So my bronco started out completely stock when I got her. The first mod I did was when I was still in High School, it was a 3 inch performance accessories body lift that I did in auto shop with the help of a lot of friends haha man that seems so long ago (2003). From there I ditched the body lift and got a 4 inch Rancho lift and 33s...






A view from the fire watch station

My best friend in his jeep, unfortunately I dont see this guy enough since hes serving our country.

I used a old 68 bronco hood for all the fills.

My home made coil buckets, radius arms, drop brackets and x-member.

The radius arm drop brackets are tide into the top of the frame also with this bracket.

The mods from there were small, few, and far between. I added a pro comp light bar, some hella fogs and some pro comp 8 inch round 100 watts.


the 33s felt small real fast so I sold them and bought a set of 35 inch toyo muds.





The 4 inch lift didnt last too long considering all the fender rubbing. I regeared to 4:56, and put that old three inch body lift back on. Later I found a heavy steel bumper that a member on here was selling.

I got pretty tired of endlessly polishing the aluminum wheels so I had them powder coated



I drove it that way for a couple years then this followed me home from the junk yard
