Ok, here's something a little different. I've been working on this project for 2 years and I finally feel like I can post some pics that are worthy of this site. The Bronco has been converted into purely a ranch/hunting vehicle. It has a new 351, tranny, 4x4, camo paint job, spray on bedliner interior, STC softtop, quail rig front bumper, console converted into an icechest, overhead gunrack with texas flag headliner, and dome light converted into a 12volt plug for a spot light.

I've had the truck for 10 years and have been working on it as time and money became available. I FINALLy got it down to the ranch last weekend and took some pics. Tell me what you think. This site has helped me tremendously along the way.

This is my first time posting pics, so I hope this works. Sorry if it's too big.

I think it is a hell of a fine rig. From the first side shot I couldn't figure out those were seats on your bumper. Excellent thought.:rockon

Thanks for the comments. Like I said, I got the 1980 bronco 10 years ago but started the transformation 2 years ago. There's still alot more I want to do, but don't we all have that same problem. My next goal is to upholster the seats in waterproof camo and build a back bumper with a gas can and jack integrated. The front bumper is removeable. It was my first time welding anything big so it's a little rough around the edges, but it's a ranch vehicle so I'll put up with some rough edges. I built the bumper with scrap pipe and diamond plating that my friend had. The only thing I paid for were the seats which were $75. Not bad when considering how much a fabricator would charge.

I set it up for quail hunting in south texas, but as you can see, it kills hogs and beer too. It also works well for pulling up to ponds(we call em tanks in texas) and fishing from the front bumper.

Like I said earlier, you guys on this site helped me with all of my questions along the way and I thank you for it. :drinkbud

Nice job Sotex.

How do have the flag held in for the headliner?

For the headliner, I took off the original fabric and used spray adhesive to attach the flag. I may need to respray it with better stuff(I bought the cheap stuff) because it's fallen down a little in the middle. No big deal though, the whole process cost me less than $20 and can always be fixed with little effort.

I forgot to mention that the seat posts are removeable also so if I'm not going to use the seats I can use the bumper for more beer and gear.

Sotex-

Mighty fine work for your huntin' truck. It should work very well
in the pear flats and blackbrush. You've started a trend with the
Lone Star headliner however.....

Keep your powder dry, hooks sharp and let this bunch of churnheads
see a pic every now and again of your progress.

BTW, the background brush looks familiar, Atascosa River or San Miguel?
