History
Dads truck, left to me 2 years ago. 248k mileage. its been kept all stock save an upgraded stereo and tow hitch.
It was his dream to fix it up and give it to me. I plan on getting the truck sorted out tastefully and keep to the classic look while adding some new elements.
1996 Ford Bronco (Saddle Beige Metallic)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Completely stock and needing updating.
If I had an unlimited Budget. I would opt for a coyote motor and transmission package from Hotrod power source.
As it stands I am looking to get a 400hp/430tq longblock from tristar, A new hd e4od and a rebuilt bw1356 from Monster transmission.
After I get these I will be going with a set of ceramic coated headers and a full stainless exhaust. Possibly flowmaster or borla mufflers
Interior
Currently the seats in the front are destroyed, leather is done. I am going to have them completely redone in factory livery!
I will be replacing the carpet with new. and going to some type of really good floor mat set.

Drivers door panel window switch is broken, plastic inside failed. So will be looking for a replacement door panel in beige, with black xlt trim.
Exterior
Stock now, will be repainting the hard top this spring. Tinting cab windows to match the cap with light mirror/sand tint.
Future plans for a softopper black/tinted top.
Need to replace both front and back bumpers with new Chrome ones as well as find a spare tire support brace for inside the tailgate. I want to reinstall the factory tire carrier, sitting in my garage.
Audio
Changed out Dads Alpine for a Kenwood that streams blue tooth audio and has bluEtooth phone integration. I currently have a 128g usb thumb drive with music.
Suspension
248k on stock, sagging and will get a 4" lift with new leaf springs.
Close to ordering a 4" complete kit from Rough Country.
The rear 8.8 axle I had rebuilt with 355 gears and Yukon Dura-grip lsd. All new drums/shoes wheel bearings and seals. The Front brakes have been completely replaced with brand new calipers and wheel bearings. All new factory style steering links too.
