Congratulations to HCodi Your January FOTM 2019 Winner

We only had three this month but it sure was a Barn Burner. You all did a great job and stayed active all month keeping us all entertained through the whole thing.


I really thought this month may have been the beginning of the end with only 3 but you three proved me wrong. We got a good amount of votes and the whole
competition took on a life of it's own. @thequietman @96bronco Thank you for running and making it a great month but there can only be 1


Help me congratulate @HCodi on his well deserved win !!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations man !!!!!

Wow! what a great way to wake up! This really has been an exhilarating competition!

Thank you so much everybody for all the support and votes. I really wasn’t expecting this. To be honest, I almost gave up a couple of days ago, but something kept me going just like with my build. And I am glad I did.

Thank you @BigBlue 94 @MS88Bronc @Frank Lanzisera @allcruisen @White Dragon @Quader1 @1985 Bronco and everybody else for all your comments and support.


And thank you @96bronco and @thequietman for being such great competitors. You have great stories behind your trucks and I am honored to share mine alongside yours.

And finally, thank you @Ziggy for the numerous hours you spent helping me and the invaluable lessons learnt.

Thank you guys for a great show! This was my first time tuning in, and I'm sure glad I did. It was great to see the passion that each of you has for your Bronco, and all the great restoration and upgrades that you have tackled to keep them serving your needs

It was a great job by all 3 involved! I'm a big fan of all 3 rigs, and the stories behind them were great! Honestly, it's much easier being on this side (observing) the competition than participating in it. Until you've done one, you really have no idea how much work it is to keep your writing momentum going for a month. Observers just get to sit back and eat popcorn, enjoying the show. So yeah... great job done by all and your efforts are appreciated as much as your Broncos are admired!

@HCodi - Congrats!!! You have an awesome truck & I love your enthusiasm and efforts! I told you in a PM that I'm still interested in adding a 2nd Bronco to my home, and I'd love to have a '78-9 like yours!

@96bronco - Great truck! I wanted an EB in those colors so bad back in the late 90s! Your history with it is awesome & I wish I had bought one back then & enjoyed it for so long as a daily, instead of flipping through a bunch of other vehicles. It probably would have been cheaper! BTW, as an Eagle myself (& son of an Eagle), a big thumbs up for your efforts with BSA! I wish my son had been interested in being a Scout, but he wasn't.

@thequietman - Thank you for your service! It was great to read the story of your Bronco & the work you've put into it! I haven't done half as much with mine! Honestly, I think you kinda got a raw deal with the competition this month, because you were paired up against two really incredible rides. There's no doubt that you could have won it if you'd have slipped into a "regular" month. Please, please try this thing again when you're eligible!

Great work and thanks for the entertainment. HCodi’s story about his tribulations getting her home to Cali after he bought her hooked me from the start. You’ve got a great wife to have tolerated that initial drive home and to be onboard with the build. Nothing like a great woman.

Yo HCodi,
Congratulations!

Yo thequietman & 96bronco your modifications and craftmanship is appreciated and will no doubt be implemented by other members. Such as:

Electronic fuel pressure gauge mounted in the 2006 Expedition console by thequietman

Hard to find 78 400M Federal VECI & Emission Vacuum Diagrams by HCodi.

😎

See my partially recovered Bronco web site. Thanks to Mr. Schwim!

Thank you so much! @Ghosteh I am sure you will find the perfect second generation Bronco, and we will all be here waiting to hear about your restoration. You did an amazing job on your 96 Border Patrol Bronco!

Thank you @Frank Lanzisera It was totally insane and she really deserves a lot of praise for her patience and support. I really feel so bad that I put her through all the stress. And our relationship suffered because of it. That is the reason I would probably be very careful if I had to do this again. Things were really rough, but somehow I made it in huge part thanks to this forum, so thank you all once again!

Good Morning y'all,

First off, @HCodi …..man whatta story and truck. Way to hang tough.

@96bronco - I am probably gonna plagerize your front bumper. At least something close to it. I have an X9 winch that I gotta put somewhere.

Sorry I tailed off but with the outage moving up (which is killin me. I have never been around such failures of leadership in my life)..I just couldn't devote the time.
@Ghosteh - man thank you for the support and motivation. Like I said in my posts, we are never really done tinkering on our Bronco's. I have ordered a PRO-M 80mm MAF, a 200amp Alternator and I already mentioned the front bumper. I plan on having all this done when I leave for Moab.


Y'all have a good day. I gotta get to work.

Looking forward to seeing more from you in the future! @thequietman now that you know the amount of content that you need!!!

@96bronco soo close but one thing is for sure, you probably have the nicest Bronco with the most strongest, Practical and useful upgrades of any out there! Plus they are all documented very well and I am sure will help many more Bronco maniacs with upgrading their Broncos. One might even go as far as saying your bronco is like the encyclopedia of upgrades. Thanks for sharing ypur storys again and thank you for continuing to carry the torch for the Boy Scouts of America even if they change their name!!!


@HCodi nice run sir. Not only have you rebuilt a beautiful Bronco but the clarity of your pictures just amplified how your Great Bronco looks. Congratulations sir. You have 9 months now before FOTY to gather more content to show us how you use it and what you built It to do! Again great job Beautiful BKO!
