The club started on FB I post everything regarding club events in the Az Bronco Club Calendar, Here in The Southwestern Forum. 90% of the people only get on here for upgrade info and the FOTM Contest. But if you have any questions you can always PM me or Fred we are always on even if it doesnít look like it. I did accept you on the FB page. What is it that we can help you with?

Blue1551 I am doing a LS swap as we speak. Well I mean I am having a swap done in the valley at Flat Iron Garage. Check out my build page.

How much time/money do you have? What are you looking to gain?

A diesel swap will cost significantly more than refreshing the original drivetrain. The only real net positives are fuel mileage and torque, plus simplicity if you go for the Zombie Apocalypse proof all mechanical diesel.

I was thinking in this direction when I bought our '92, but the more I think about it the less sense it makes. Recent discussions here have been about LS swaps, and you can swap in an LS/modern trans/TC for about what a rebuilt and slightly upgraded 351 would cost (if you're doing the work). For a usable trail rig, this makes a LOT of sense (though putting a GM engine in a Bronco does hurt a bit).

Again for a trail rig... cost vs. benefit... I'm still planning 3/4 ton axles and SAS eventually, but it's probably not necssary.

Something else I originally thought about, but the auto is easier to drive off-road and in snow, especially for my wife. (See benefits of modern transmission with LS swap above...).

Gunny, you can drive most anywhere, BLM, National Forest, State Land. Some just require permits if you are parking a trailer and unloading your wheeler, or some simply require a permit to drive on that trail system. Some permits are Free and are good for the day, 11 days, 3 months etc. Some have a small fee. A Website I recommend that has a pretty extensive(not all) trail system with GPX files info etc is https://www.trailsoffroad.com/ Or if you are in AZ and if you on Facebook search groups for the Az Bronco Club. we do monthly MnGs that the majority of the time have trail runs afterwards. Generally though there is always someone willing to go out explore the desert. If you are not on FB you can always go Our Calendar here on FSB at the top of the page in the Southwest Chapter Forum https://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum...-calander.html and get info on the next trail run.

Blue1551 If you go to the forum website it has a list of areas and the dates they will be Inspecting them. They do a lot of trail inspections that means they come up here they drive around they have a blast and then they write a report on it. When I get my bronco back I am planning on getting with them and see what they are all about.

Yes, they are vital to maintaining the trail system for the forest service as well as the off-road community. You can report seriously decade trail conditions due to storms or heavy use to them. They help keep the trails passable for everyone. Very reputable group. Would love to have our club affiliated with them.

did they say what trail they were working on up there?

itwasFREE!!!! Anyone interested in running Upper Terminator June 29th either as a Night Run or an early morning run. If you haven't been on this trail body damage is a high probability. It will require 35s at least 1 locker and experienced driving skills with an intimate relationship between the skinny pedal and brake pedal.

BroncoAZ LS3 refers to the corvette 6.2L engine. I would think LQ4 or LQ9, which are the truck 6.0L engines, would be the engine to use. I would strongly recommend a 4L80 trans instead of the 4L60. I would also think the NP261 manual tcase from the Silverado would be the simplest setup, and it is driverís side drop. Maybe the 208 is better, but I donít know much about them.

What kind of money were the quotes?
06-01-2019 05:55 PM
Blue1551 I checked on the cost of doing an LS verses Coyote swap. Keeping with a Ford drive train would cost about $1800 to $2000 more than an LS. They make all kinds of kits for LS"s along with the rest of the running gear. So LS it is. (oh the shame)

LS3 6.0 with a 4L60E T case 208? This is the combination suggested by the three shops I got bids from.

What do you think.
