So recently I got myself some 35s and some 15x10 wheels for Brutus.

My brother just couldn't stand it and mounted one of the 35s to see the fit on his Dodge. Then today I got moved out here with the Bronco and we both just had to know how they'd look. There's only one tire mounted, so that's why we only test fit the one. Hopefully this coming weekend I'll get a 4" lift done.

I really would like to keep my 15x8 turbines because I get so many comments on them, but the black wheels look pretty cool on the black truck. Plus those turbines are a PITA, they're the type where the lug nut goes down inside the wheel, so you kinda have to lift the wheel off the stud to get the nut started..its just a huge PITA.

On with the pics...



All three of my rides in one pic, haha. The Frusion, the F100 and the Bronco.


Ooopsie...No Good!


Stuffed.





Anyhow. That's all. I can't wait to get it lifted and the whole set on. :chili::chili:

Damn, looks great Mels, the black on black looks good. Any chance you're putting the racetrack and upper trim back on? I know what ya mean about those turbines, even worse with 35s mounted on em like mine. Cant wait to see it once you get the lift done.

I don't know. I thought about it. I really had planned on painting it back blue and silver, restoring it, making it a nice cruiser. But now that I have the '66, I don't need two show trucks, I'd like to play with this one a little. My wallet certainly won't allow two nice paint jobs and the body is kinda rough on the Bronco. I do have two new fenders for it, but they don't have the little tits for the trim clips or the holes for the lower trim. I dunno, we'll see. *shrug*

Oh and when I get those tires mounted for real, I'll have them black side wall out, I don't like the white letters with the black wheels.

Mels i was fuc.......dating a girl this summer and she had a cat named Brutus.

I swear every time she said the cat's name all i could think of was Dale's house. Needless to say the fuc.....dating came to an end....but fond memories of Brutus the Bronco remain.

Nothing wrong with having two show trucks. As far as the tits go there are other ways to get the lower racetrack trim clips back on the fender. I'd like to see it blue and silver again, probably one of my favorite tu-tone color jobs that they came out with on the 78/79's.

Paint the turbines black...
Those rims are to rare to start painting on. That would be bad.

My bank account says there's a minor problem. :toothless

Yeah, me too. It would look killer with a slick blue and silver paint job. That was one thing everybody got on me about when I painted it black, "make it blue and silver again!" Maybe one day...as money allows. :cry

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I've had so much interest in them, I don't know if I should hang on to them or sell them. *shrug*

Glad you thought of us. Any time you wanna ride...in Brutus the Bronco you just come on down. ;)
I get reminders all the time.

A kid at school had a truck he called his "Mule", i went out to look at it and it was a 2WD S-10, and the exact statement that rolled out of my mouth was "WTF? That's not a mule".

Moonshine just isn't the same up here either.
