after trying to sell my 94 xlt and no one wanting it. i decided to try something i always wanted to do. as we all know they never made broncos in 97 so i found a front end to a 97 f150 which we are going to put on the bronco. along with new quarters and a paint job.
f150 front end

Good luck and I hope you can build a custom bumper.

IMO I think it will be ugly. I've always hated those front clips.

Good luck, you're going to need it. Too bad it isnt a superduty clip

What's a branco? Nutritious, delicious, and fiber-filled breakfast cereal?


:rofl:

EDIT: Forgot to mention 1997 was the year the F-150 turned into a woman's truck. WAY too bubbly and rounded to be a man's vehicle. Kinda like a 1994-1998 Mustang looks just like a Grand Am (another woman car).

buy a POS and throw that on it. Your truck is too good to waste if it doesnt turn out right. It will be difficult, I agree Doba, those front ends are ugly. It will be interesting to see if you make it look right. good luck

I would take a 78-79, 92-96 Bronco/F-150 ANYDAY over the first generation of the new F-150s (1997-2004). Not really sure about the 2005+

I'm pretty optimistic he'll get 'er done. I hope it looks better than an Expedition though.

He's a youngster... and judging by his threads I doubt he has much mechanical ablility.
