Ok, little delay. Drove to the west coast today to make a purchase. Back to the saga.. But after we finished all that engine stuff and enjoyed straight long tubes for a while, off to the exhaust shop it went.
Don't have a picture but I had true duals with flomaster knockoffs and some cheap cats. Sounded good, truck had more power, and it didn't leak any oil now. Then sometime in early 2008 I made some purchases that changed everything. Kingpin dana 60 I picked up in western MD for $500 in very good shape, and a 10.25 I got in PA for $175 out of a scrapped C350 that was very rusty.
Everything else involved in the axle swap is in my sas thread.
But basically cage arms, james duff shocks, older coil buckets, 8 inches of lift and some stuff. However I never got it to driving condition.. My buddy then made a nice 6 point roll cage that he welded straight to the frame.
Some of the various floor patches..
And some sweet custom bumpers my buddy made with free steel. Good luck denting these, even with a hammer. Also welded the bumpers straight to the frame.
Then it sat like this for way too long. But in the woods.
And life got in the way at that point. Later traded my beadlocks, tires, and cash for an LS1 powered car. Then I moved to Florida and left the bronco in the woods. In early 2014 I decided I wanted the bronco back. So I eventually sold my car and used the cash to have the bronco transported to Florida in non-running condition and bought some stuff for it. Did a F150 tank swap, Wilwood 4 piston calipers in the front, disc brakes in the rear, stainless brake and tranny lines, F350 master cylinder and booster, a new winch, finished my exhaust, dual battery system, 3G, starter, etc. And the 39.5 iroks mounted on recentered H1's. And by finish my exhaust I mean rip it all out and replace all with new and different. It was a lot of work. When it first arrived in Florida there were multiple mice nests, spiders, and all kinds of goodies inside.
I had it delivered in July and after all of my work had it running by thanksgiving. So after all of that it became this.
And then I spray bombed the whole thing black.
