I've been working on this project for over a year and have a build thread on Pirate and a couple local forums and have been meaning to get one started here since this forum is responsible for making me fall in love with this truck and wheeling.
I have a 1993 Bronco, and my general plans for it are as follows:
3 link front and 4 link rear
Dana 60 front and Sterling 10.25 rear (keeping the stock 4.10 for now, planning on regearing shortly after the build is complete and I shake down the rest of the rig)
FOA 2.0 14in travel reservoir coilovers all the way around
Running 38 Swamper SX's on H1 beadlocks and runflats
Would like to do some engine work, but that is last on the list and will be subjected to how depleted my finances are
I'm running 1.75x.120 wall uppers, 2x.5 threaded lowers with JJ's on all sides. Front panhard is using Ruffstuff heims.
I welded up my rear carrier and axle tubes front and rear. I kept the front open as I want to keep some form of agility with having a fullsize rig and longer wheelbase. If I find that I want more traction I will weld the front as well.
Tons sandblasted, primed, and setup under the truck.
Sitting on its own weight for the first time in 18 months
That is at full bump.
I started the boatsides tonight. I don't think they will be near as difficult as I first thought. I'm hoping to have them done by month's end. After that, I'll be mocking up coilovers and building the cage.
That bumper took alot of fab and design work to look as good as it does, lol. My friends think its fun to weld random shit on my rig when I'm not looking :shaking:
Bronco Info: '79 built 400, Ford 10.5" Rear, Dana 60 Front, Locked, Twin Sticked

What are you doing with the frame where you cut it up for the hi steer?
