Jesus clipped the hood since the latch decided to shit the bed on me





Driving the F350 through the new england winter. I need to buy a set of hangers for the Bronco, repair the core support, install the HID's, prep the frame, and probably buy new leafs.

i kept my panhard bar, just had to drill a couple holes in the engine crossmember and drop it 4''s because of my lift. i actually grafted the front section of a 83 f250 into my 92 bronco. it already had the leaf mounts, no crumple zone, and the engine mounts that i needed for my big block

Done with school next week...time to start bolting all my crap together.

Total cost so far, rounded:

1200 for the truck
150 for the hangers
350 for the shackle reversal kit, with new shackles and hardware
120 for the IROKs and rims

$1820

Just need bastard joints, some rebuild parts, and brake lines now.

Word.

Also painted them with Chassis Saver. Sorta like POR-15. No pictures of that, just imagine them black.

Also cut the spacers off. What a PITA. Wound up grinding part of it off, and air hammering it out.

so if you run this front mount and those other rear mounts wont the springs be angled / \ or is the front of the frame wider then that section you plan on mounting those rear brackets?

what i was refering to is the rear spring hangers are outboard of the frame correct. the front spring hangers are directly under the front of the frame so how can they be parallel? unless of course the frame is narrower where the rear spring hangers are bolted up compared to the front frame horns.

Rear hanger:

I could have spent hours cutting the ones off my F350 but honestly I love Sky's parts. The rear brackets are worth way more than they charge for them. Probably 40$ in hardware.
