Hey everyone, I am back here with a 96' 5.0 bone stock that was carefully taken care of by someone in Montana. In a galaxy far far away I was once upon a time here with a 94' when we lived in AZ. Its been 15 years since I moved east, sold my previous bronco and got into boating. I am sure a ton of shit has changed on FSB since I was last logged in. Maybe some of the OG dudes are still on here. This was my old 94' below in silver and white and the new red bronco project.

No, and I hate the TTb but this will first get a 6" lift and then future considerations. Up here we do not rock crawl like I did in the past. Lot of mud and show trucks. I am 1000% happy with mild life show trucks and yeah I am just fooling myself. This bronco.... The previous owner kept a detailed log. Every activity was logged. A: I love the person that did that. B: IM gonna respectfully tear this thing down

Consider a Cut and Turn lift for this if not going SAS. Several manufacturers of modified beams, mostly out west. Did a 4 inch C&T on mine, really glad I did.

Hey everyone, I am back here with a 96'
Basically the same shoes, but have been dailying mine for almost a year. Painfully factory and clean......ripe for the molesting. Gathering GT40 goods and bracing myself for a big Solo Motorsports upgrade.....

I hope you have better luck, that’s a sweet color combo, I’d have immediately caved and modified it.

Welcome back! I too remember the chickentaco name and your old bronco. Lots has changed here but its still the same ol place too. Even @BikerPepe` is still here, on his what fourth bronco?! As you can see, there are tons of OG members still here. Some only pop in every few months and some every day.

Yeah, Its been like 16 years since joe sold FSB and I threw a bitch fit and ghosted. I have grown as a father, husband and a human. I am not longer interested in rock crawling in AZ with Dogonmut or Dustin, etc because I no longer live there. Love that crew, but I moved to the beach area east coast 15 years back. My aim now is a mild build on this fresh project. It seems like most of the chatter is on Facebook, am I right?

Admit it, you never left. Once the Bronco culture gets in your brain it never leaves! Welcome back to the obsession!
Yeah man, take 10 years off the bronco saddle and buy one with the exact same intererior as one you drove for 10 years. It is a trip out, therapy and feels like your favorite jacket that just fits. Kinda trippy in a good way

I'll be damned. Nice to see ya still out there kickin'. Haven't seen much of your old crew around either but I miss a lot going on around here these days and you never know who's still lurkin' out there. Nice lookin' rig. Sounds like some basic stuff for ya these days compared to the old. I'm sure you'll make it more than capable. Always been more of a puddle jumper myself.

Maybe the boys can run some basic verification by you and merge this new account with the old... although I have no idea what goes and what doesn't behind the curtain here anymore, especially since they "mobilized" the place. Gave that up a long time ago. I don't facebook, so no clue how we sit over there vs. the forum. Welcome home though. 🍻

Are you still getting flat tires on a regular basis, or wasn't that you?
Nope. That's @locopny and he's still a regular.
You on the other hand... good to see ya. 🍻

Depends on if you count the "LeStinker" project or not but yea... something like that. ;) This ones my last... I swear. I still have Dad's and the lil' lady's to take care of... at a dried snails pace.

I dont think it was quite that long ago, but has been a while. A few members also ghosted after the move to xenforo software for the forum. Some are slowly trickling back in. FSB has kinda evolved too. Very little SAS going on and we seem to have become more of a repair/restore type forum as these broncos have aged. Still a good amount of custom fab but not like it was 15 years ago.

Facebook and youtube dont have the expert knowledge we have, but do get a lot of traffic. Lots of huff and fluff in those places.

I do see rapid chatter on FSB typs FB groups. I greatly dislike FB but it has certain pockets of info that make it convienent. To be clear, I would not piss on mark zuckerburgs teeth if they were on fire because I think his software is spyware and he has the face of reptile child eater. Nice to see some old names chime in here. There is a volume of helpful info buried here in FSB. Does anyone remember MBB and the sticker fiasco that let to the spawn of FSB? Gah, I feel old thinking about that stuff.
