Hello all!!

New to the forum and new to the Bronco community. I picked up this 1983 from the second owner. Here's what I know so far:

It's got a 302/C6 with (about 90% sure) 94,000 miles. 3.55 gears D44 TTB front 8.8 rear with POSI front and rear, Mud Claw M/Ts 32x11.50.

Tailgate has seen better days but overall the body is straight with minimal rust. The only real rust issue is on the passenger side lower front door post and small hole under the rear seat on the driver side.

PO put in new fuel pump, water pump, radiator w/hoses, master cylinder, F&R u-joints. Tires are probably 80-90%.

Runs and drives good, dash isn't cracked :thumbup. I've got a few small things to work on and fix, but I will probably keep as is for now. I plan to use it to get around in the winter and as a hunting truck. Future plans for now will be 351w, D44 solid front and Ford 9" rear.

:welcome2to FSB and congrats on the Bullnose:ford

If it were mine, I wouldn't change the drive train, especially with posi diffs; it should do very well for what you are planning on using it for.

:iagree

I appreciate your $0.02! I think you may be right, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Only reason I wanted the 351w would be for more power. I've been reading/researching the past couple days and I think I can do some tasteful mods to the 302 to gain a few extra ponies (see what I did there)

Are you guys off the ledge yet? After the fiasco on Saturday I'm sure there where a few broken TV screens in Knoxville. Just think in two weeks you get to go to Gainesville and play the Gators..... Then the Ga Bulldogs.... and Alabama.

Really hope you guys can pull off 4 or 5 wins this year. As much as I dislike the Volunteers I hate to see a SEC team implode.

Well not being from Tennessee my blood doesn't bleed Orange. I was actually laughing at that loss and the one from last weekend to BYU. If they don't win 5 heads will roll for sure.

I called about that one a while back. Almost made the 5 hour trip east to get it. But found my 89 closer to home. Should make you a nice ride.
