Hello all FSB Enthusiasts,
Just joined the group have been looking and watching this site for a long time. I have had a 1978 Bronco since 1994 and I can't let it go. I have retired form the US Army in 2017 after 25 of glorious service to the country that I love!! Since 9/11 I have been deployed 5 times for a year at a time, so my beloved BRONC has been very neglected. and is in need of some care. I understand this is not the place for questions, so I will refrain until I socialize a little. I am excited to meet all and would appreciate the any HELP!
I have attached some pics, so please take a look and get me rolling again,
Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum.

I really like the paint combo there with the two tone and the stripe going up the pillar. I think that's my favorite paint scheme on the 78/79's.

Yo ajp78bronc!,
Welcome to our Big Bronco site and thank for your dedicated service鈿

We had a 78 with 351M, dual batty, completely re-wired, no air, Borg-Warner T-18 4-speed, New Process 205 transfer case, dual Flowmasters, Dick's rear driveshaft, sport wheel,
4" Superlift. Ran great. Sold it bec. we had too many vehicles to maintain and I wasn't around it much.

Hey, Doonsenberry,
Thanks for the positive!! I love the blue and white, that is the color of the infantry and my fav.. for the the ranger XLT which I have. I just need to fix her up. The broncs been sitting for a long time since I have been gone.. it kills me. Time is the issue, getting old wears on everyone haha.
Thanks,
ajp78bronc!
