I appreciate it brother! I'll try to get a video before I pull the bed (I'm chasing a fuel tank leak)

Belle has some new shoes

35 12.50 r17 BFGoodrich at ta ko2 (real world measurement 34")
17x9 -12 bs American Racing Baja in matte black
no rubbing except for a bit at the bumper but I'm planning on trimming until I can build my custom bumpers. I like the look of black on tan

enjoy!




and yes videos soon (but i don't have the fuel turned up so don't expect coal rolling just yet lol)

Looks fantastic! The bumper does look a little close. Saws all or cut off wheel will make quick work of that.

working on some things

like any project that you think is "finished" it never seems to be the case... I took out the battery tray to paint it and found that my passenger core support needed replaced... which led to wanting to replace every body mount.... which led to pulling up the floor... which led to fixing some rust... and painting it with implement paint... and re-installing sound deadener...

anyways I bought a Mazda cx5 so that I can take my time and get my baby right! here are some pictures!





more to come...

I'm editing this post to say that Bronco Graveyard came through for me this time.

I was able to get a core support sleeve and was able to get the rubber off and replace it with the polyurethane version from my kit. (I'm sure that rubber would isolate Diesel motor vibrations nicely but I A. don't ever want to have to do this crappy job again, and B. couldn't find oem replacement body mounts in rubber)

the cab and core support are remounted and everything under the hood is back together and working in sync

I am putting a new floor in from LMC truck next and cleaning out the cowl (also re-sealing, re-weatherstripping, and re-painting to avoid rust and leak issues) Once I have this done I will be in daily driver mode for a while

building bumpers

Upon coming into some spare money... I decided to spend a bit and buy a broncoair front winch bumper.

but I had some grand schemes for building my own rear bumper. I had a local shop shear me out some 1/8" and 1/4" plates and ordered some trinkets like shackles and led license plate lights etc... here are the results

Pretty cool. I'm not sure if I like the "off center" winch. I do think it will be more useful that way. My preference is useally function over form, so I guess I would get use to it. Nice job!

yes it was a necessity since I'm cramming 11 lbs of poo in a 10 lb sack... There is a reason that not many folks have rear winch bumpers. There is very little room inbetween the frame rails/behind the fuel tank/ under the tailgate.

It could be centered if I had made the bumper deeper than 7" but then the bumper would hang down much lower and look clunkier. Also that would offset my license tag outside of the clevis' and the outside of the bumper would not be able to flare up or in as fast.

here are some pictures of how much junk is in that center hole. ( and I still have to figure out my trailer wiring in there as well

I could see where the off center could be good. Like if You had a trailer like mine, you could run the cable down the side of the tongue and tow something up on the trailer.
