I guess I'll lead off.
Here's my 88 xlt I bought off a fella in NC back in 2013.

It had f250 axles under it and thats about all I knew before I went by on a work trip to have a look. He had already sold the 44s that were under it but still had the rims.


During the work trip I ordered a set of toyo open country mt 385-70-16s (wish now I had gotten 5 as theyre perma backordered). Once they were delivered and mounted we used the company truck to take em by and stick em on the rig.



More on the saga of getting this mule home forthcoming, but after 4 years and a bunch of paychecks later its finally "road worthy"


Wheeled it for the first time last month and recaught the bug. Had a heluva good time at windrock

And went to a more local spot with @bohawg95 last weekend

More from both trips to come, and have at least 2 more trips planned for may. Thanks again for the nom!

Heres a few more from the trip home. It fired right up first try, but during the test drive the brakes felt "off" so we swapped pads and shoes and my buddy kevin did some adjusting


Drove it some more, then of course

It was race weekend in charlotte and we already had a camp set up. Hoping to have the bko at camp by then, the upper rad hose busted rubbing on the tensioner

We left it in a wally world parking lot till the next morning. Next day we swapped hoses and headed for the track...
Nope. Wasn't meant to be...


Grenaded the reaar end. Called good old @Dave's Bronc 90 to gimme a tow, and being the super dude he is, he hauled it to a local shop for me

Many dollars, new rear axles, 5.13 gears, detroit locker, and a few weeks later it made it home to the driveway


And heres a screenshot from last weekend to keep it from getting too boring with back story and all

Lets the games begin. Thanks for the nomination guys its been a while and lots has happened with the bronco in the past 13 years since I joined this site. My love for broncos came from my dads 79 that was custom ordered from the factory in 1978 my uncle ordered it along with a 79 "hi-boy" that matched and my dad traded him a 79 cougar for the bronco. This is my 4th one.
1991 Eddie Bauer that was owned by an old couple I bought in 2003.


it went from stock to a 4 inch lift


Then to the first rendition of the solid axle


And how she sits now..

So I dont have a whole lot of pictures from when it was stock or build pictures from the 4 inch lift.(being digital cameras we expensive back then) but Ill take you on some pictures of it wheeling with a 4 inch TTB lift.

An old snow picture in Flagg:


Wheeling at the old Butcher Jones


Towing my buddies boat








I decided at one time a giant stereo was necessary so I re wired the whole thing.




That Giant battery went bad and smoked my computer about 4 years ago. The amp is still in there powering my mid-hi's the stereo has since been torn out I started to focus on wheeling and putting useful stuff in.

So..... Thin intention was to not do anything with this Bronco. I was going to put a mild lift and some 33's on it and call it good. I joined this site in 2004 and that all changed I saw thing thing called a solid axle swap and it was over. That was the only thing that my dad hated about his 89 Bronco when he gave up the 79. So that was the plan I found a 79 bronco in Apache junction I bought it for a set of 15" sub woofers and $300. it had no motor and was a basket case.


So it begins I harvested all the parts and kept them in the garage for a while along with the shell of a 1979 bronco. Ive rework the swap about 10 times and wasted more money than I can think of.

Aschessla checking in!

Howdy folks, I have always loved Ford vehicles, especially the Bronco! When my kids were old enough to start enjoying camping and the outdoors, I realized I needed something that had the space and could get them anywhere we wanted to go. I knew it was finally my opportunity to get a Ford Bronco, so I started shopping around and found this beauty. This is the day I picked her up:



I was very lucky to find such a clean rig with some work done already!




These pics are early on, things have changed a lot. More to come...

Over the last couple days I've decided to make a few minor changes based on lessons learned wheeling last weekend. Keep in mind this is the ugly duckling "mr hyde the deuce" and I'm more concerned about how it works over how it looks. These include:
1) @gadawgz71 convinced me I needed to be monitoring the trans temp in this AOD, so today I stopped by Summit and grabbed a digital autometer gauge and sending unit to do just that.

I mounted where I can see it easily and placed the sending unit into the pressure test port (yes I DID read the debate on the suitability of this location but deferred to @PUNISHER because... well it was the easiest and should ballpark me)

2) my fenders and sliders rubbed the front tires pretty bad at full stuff (which until saturday I wasn't sure this truck was capable of), so out came the sawzall to cut even more off (again funtion over form, and I had already removed the big section. Only another 2" or so came off the fender and 1" off the sliders this time and should be plenty)



3) I couldn't hear a dang thing on the CB with just the internal speaker while driving so I tossed in the one out of the old expy


4) my arm didn't like feeling like it was being ground away by coarse grit sandpaper on the painted plywood of the center console, so out came some scrap fabric and foam


5) last but certainly not least...I contacted @CCOR about rewelding my traction bar that busted off saturday right after we hit the trail on a little creek obstacle


The heim survived and I'm going to drop it off tomorrow to be rewelded and hopefully gusseted to the rear axle.
Went on to wheel the rest of the day with no issues

This is usually how it looks when I go wheeling. I pretty much go with anyone when I get the chance but Im usually the biggest rig. I get alot of "your gonna do that" or how did you make it through with no body damage"? I went with a jeep liberty group once that was interesting.
