I'm not really sure how I feel about that freewheelin' paint. Its cool, but it sure is dated.

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

Paul from PJB has a complete set, but wants big money for it. There is a guy here parting one out that the body didn't look too bad. I think it was Gub_ni, he is in TN.

they came with drag link and tie rod steering. We used a Dodge power steering box and half of a Dodge drag link mated to half of the rockwell drag link to get the right direction of travel and the proper connections on it. The tire size is 45" tall x 12" wide on 20" wheels and a set of 55" tall x 24" wide implement tires on 26" wheels 20" of lift on top of the rockwells and tires. drive train is a 400M, "Granny low"-2wd-4spd, divorced 205 t-case (so we could step things down for driveline angles) 6.72:1 ratio, 2-1/2 ton rockwell toploaders (hence the name 2-1/2tonbronco). It belongs to my youngest son who is mostly the one who built it. He started out about 4 or 5 months before his 16th birthday with a stock bronco that was missing some parts and had a very tired 351M in it, put it together stock and kept adding more and bigger parts until at just barely past his 18th birthday this was what he ended up with. He fabricated the bumpers and most of the lift hardware, steering mods, drivelines, and stacked the frames himself (most of that was done in our driveway).

Sure no prob......Its a 78 with the 351m with edlbrock cam, intake manifold, and 650 cfm 4 barrel carb, k&n filter. C-6 and np205. its got a 6" skyjacker and a 2" body. 38x15.5 parnelli jones dirt grips on 15x12 ae589 rims. Custom front bumper. Interior floors and cargo walls are rhino lined, with new carpet on top. Doors, tailgate and hood were replaced with new ones (never buy aftermarket doors, took all kinds of work to line them up and they still dont fit right) and the whole truck was stripped and painted with 2003 silver metallic clearcoat by ford. Would have gone with a cheaper paint and painter but I have a couple of friends that gave me a deal I couldnt refuse. In the works: New custom rear bumper with 2" reciever and d-rings. Kayline soft top is comming off, Skyler "fastback" style top going on. 14 bolt rear with 4.10 or 4.56's..havent decided yet and im swapping the 44 front to 8 lug outers to match. 6" kit is comming off for a 9" kit ive been putting together. mostly superlift stuff, but I am going to have some 8.5" leafs made, and possibly some custom radius arms if things work out as planned. Not so near future: 39.5's or 40's, dana 60 front. line-x on the rear lower quarter panels, 460 when this darn 351 dies...i just cant kill it.....thats all I have on my plate for now, but we all know that it never ends, thats why its fun.

It is actually camo, I just had a butt load of dust (red clay type) built up on it that weekend.

Well the soft top isnt in the best shape....i removed the straps that you can use to roll up the sides and pintched the snaps so they wouldnt rattle. It still has the ones for the back wiindow, but they have streched out some. It has a 3" part on the rear seam where the stiching is comming apart. Also it has about 2-3 broken snaps. The vinyl is in good shape and all the brackets and stuff are good. I por-15'ed some of the parts as they needed it. It would be a good top if you wanted to fix it, or if you just wanted something lighter and easier than the hard top. But its by no means in "like new" condition. If you all are still interested I will sell it cheap as long as you pay for shipping. E-mail me at JHBrunt@aol.com if you are interested.

thanks,
James

Sweet truck, love the color scheme on it! Don't think I have seen one exactly like it before, did you custom paint or are those factory ford two tone colors?

Nice truck Raider, looks like it's been used for a purpose and looks quite capable in that role. Love the pic with your daughter, don't know what I woulda thought if my dad owned a truck with tires the height of me..cause I thought our old f350 was big..

I'm finally able to post a pic of my new toy.

I have big plans for it, but for now I would just like to get an inspection sticker.

Hello all. New here and all that. So I'll start off right and post some pics of my blue beast. I already know one of you (Lonestar_Bronco), but then he's the only other person I know in North Dallas that drives a real 4x4

Before our little offroad jaunt


Look... round headlights...


More mud
