Thumbs up Let me kick things off!

Chapter 1:
Hello, my name is Alfonso but my friends call me Fonzie or Fonso. A few years ago my family went on a camping trip and I could barely fit our gear in my wife's suv. I had to put some in my buddy's truck, embarrassing! It was in that moment that I decided to buy a Bronco! I sold my sports car and was able to snag a '96 Eddie Bauer with a 351W & less than 125k miles. I am the third owner and thankfully the previous two took great care of her. I eloquently named her the "Blue Beast". The truck was in great condition, everything worked, etc... Here are a few pics of the day I brought her home:

Happy camper!



More to come...

I am James, folks call me Jimmy.

I swapped a 4 cyl jeep wrangler for this 84 bronco in San Angelo TX about a year ago. I have never been so happy in a 4x4 in my entire life... i love my bronco.

It hadnt been registered since 98 and lived its life in servitude on a ranch until i got it.

When i got it the ball joints came out in pieces, the exhaust was missing and the radio ripped out... but it had a soft and lovely 351W lope, a C6 trans NP208 and 9 inch that i was very happy to recieve.

I believe the previous owner when he said he had the engine rebuilt, and the trans. Because i put ball joints in it, and exhaust, and a stock radio from a 86 f250, then a warn winch and bumper, 6 inch lift, 37 12.50 HMMWV tires like we had in afghanistan and i just have been driving it.... havnt had to mess with it lol

Mod time!

Chapter 2:
Folks that know me would not be surprised by my 1st mod… I am a bit of an audiophile as such I needed some better sound from the Beast! Check it out:

First off you need a good headunit to control everything! I only use Kenwood!!!


Of course it is hard enough to see when backing with with the lift and huge tires, so a backup camera was a must.

Safety 1st! Microphone for some hands free chatting.

And what audio system would not be complete with out good tweets and mids. Here are my Focal tweeters.

Seeing how I purchased the Bronco for added cargo space, I had to ensure I would not lose space in the process. I decided to fabricate some fiberglass enclosures utilizing the rear fender wells.






Time to build the amp rack.

This is actually my 1st amp rack.


Turned out pretty nice I think.


So much better!!!


To be continued...

Okay my turn! I've owned my Bronco since September of 1994, so I have a ton of pictures to go through and get ready to post. But I feel the need to tell my story first, so grab a cold one and get comfortable.

My name is Lance. I grew up on a large cattle ranch in Montana. I literally don’t remember a time when I wasn’t driving. At the age of 2, my Dad would take me out with him to feed the cattle, and would have me stand on the seat of the truck, put it in low range, and then he would hop in the bed and throw hay out the back while he would tell me which way to steer. My Dad preferred Ford trucks, he always felt they rode better than the competition. We had a ’69, a ’74, and a ’76. All were ¾ ton 4x4 rigs with a V8 and 4-speed. I vaguely remember learning to drive a stick, only because I had to be old enough to reach the pedals. The ’76 was my favorite. It was bright red, and unlike the others it had power steering.
So, my interest in Fords was planted early. The family of a good friend had an early 80’s Bronco, and it just seemed like the perfect mix of capability, comfort and convenience. I was really struck by the look of the reflective Chromatic stripes on the '79 Bronco with the Freewheeling package. I used to see them all over. Most of them were black, but I saw the occasional silver or white one too. Over time, I saw fewer and fewer of them.
I ended up buying a Mustang as my first vehicle, the need for speed outweighing the promise of off-road adventures. But the second winter of daily driving a Mustang was a particularly nasty one, and I ended up immobilized on multiple occasions. I stubbornly refused to part with my Mustang (I *still* have it 29 years later), but decided a cheap 4x4 vehicle was a necessity. After a couple of Jeeps and a Dodge, I finally landed what I really wanted, a '79 Bronco. It was maroon with a white top, 351M, C6, NP203. That thing would climb a tree, it just wouldn't pass a gas station. I had it two years, until the day I drove by a consignment lot and saw a Freewheeling Bronco with the chromatic stripes parked there. It took me three weeks of negotiating, and finally biting the bullet and going deep in debt to get it. September 1994, and I finally had my dream Bronco.
