Well to answer your guys questions. (1) the fiberglass hood and quarters are fiberwerx glass.DONT buy bronco glass from them.It needed alot of work.Matter of fact I had to toss there front fenders.My buddy Kevin at extreme motorsports molded me up some new fronts.(2) I have been working on this Forever it seems.Had to put it in storage for 2 years to save up and had other issuses to deal with.Probably 6 years believe it or not.(3) didnt cut and turn the beams.Instead we built from scratch or own heavy duty and braced where possible drop brackets.4 inch drop. May go with wider cut beams later.Not big priority.

Thanks nick, the suspension up front feels pretty good, possibly a little soft still. I need to spend some more time playing but the rear feels much better with the change up front. I am on the fence I think the compression needs to be a little stiffer still. Funny though since i was used to havving a dual setup just having a shock on the front has changed things as well, I think I am going to run a 10" 2.5 triple bypass behind the bucket and bumps I think that will lock the front up really well. Now I am debating going spring under in the rear or two link... not sure yet.
Yogi, thats a nice video the bronco told me that what it wants to be when it grows up.....again you leave me feeling very inadequate of course I think if I didnt have to drive it home I could push much harder on it. Again thanks for sharing.
Jeremy

Thats not a CV boot but a shifter boot for a semi truck.And yes that will be going around the shock to seal the hole.As far as Scotts bronco steering.Kevin built him from scratch a custom equal length steering arm setup with idler on passenger side.With H&M heims instead of ball joints.It doesnt get much better than that unless you go Howe. Which what he has is fine for his race rig.I would wonder how it would help him if he ran a rear sway bar setup though.Hes running deavers,and extended shackles.If he had a sway bar in the rear that might help the body roll,and wouldnt have to steer as much to compensate for it.
