It may be dated, but it's groovy, man! Personally, I like it better than the run-of-the-mill two-tone paint jobs. I sorta like the monotone clay color that Lonestar_Bronco has! (By the way, my house is still hanging on to some of those avocado green appliances, but I couldn't bring myself to color-coordinate the Bronco with them!)
bnkrtstk - Another one! I wonder how many of the Free Wheelin' Edition was produced???
I just started to buy new body panels, got the tailgate in the box for $100 from a buddy. I looked and looked and cannot find the cromatic stripe kit. I thought I had a handle on them but the only one I could find was missing pieces. My body guy is going to duplicate the existing stripe kit. I am going to ask him about reflective paint to try to simulate the cromatic stripe.
millpondmonster - Thanks for the great pics of the BRONCO! I like the Rockwells. Is that drag links with a power steering box? I thought that Rockwells used hydraulic rams to steer with. I would have liked to go with 2.5ton stuff, but I wanted to keep it street legal and I was under the impression that you can't run hydraulic steering on the street. Something about a mechanical system must be used, but can be assisted with hydraulic. I didn't really check into the laws regarding this, just got the 14Bolt/D60. I do like that Bronco though. Got some engine, tires, gear ratio, transfer case specs?? I'm not really up to speed with drivetrains rated over a ton. Curious though (future upgrade???).
mudpux - Thanks for the compliment. Believe me, it took the commitment of both my wallet and my family and almost three years time to get this far. We are dedicated to this project and we hope to enjoy it for many years to come. It does take a lot to do something like this, but it is worth it, as I am sure that many here can attest to! Hope to be at the bogs soon.
Everyone - Keep posting the great pics! There are lots of fans of Broncos out there! I love to check out everyone's cool rides. Thanks JD
