So close to being done now....now it looks like the mega mudder it’s supposed to be....but needed to change out the shocks to a larger size and also add the brake components....

dayum... uncle...
Dig your start/switch setup, and your sliders - I have wiring to do this week.
Thanks...as a side note.....there are no fuses in my rig, everything is on a series of automatic circuit breakers that self reset when the short is gone

Oooooo not sure if I should answer that lol...it’s a bit embarrassing and prideful at the same time...but...as of right now I have invested $90k in the truck....closer to $100k if you count the trailer I just bought for it and a few extras...I bought the truck for $4k....so ...yeah....parts alone account for 80% of the cost....the rest is labor

Lol Thanks...but it wasn’t money I just had laying around....that’s why it took 8 years to pay for this...motor built by Pete Hancock racing LLC ( now in Alabama)... paint and body by a shop I don’t really recommend...all other fabrication done by Southern Kustoms (West Palm Beach, FL), Rims by Plan B Fab (Sanford, FL)....I don’t know off hand what orbital was used but I can find out (my guess would be PSC or Overson)....I believe most if not all of the hydraulic steering components came from PSC

Okay folks. It's been a long month of working on the Bronco and getting her out of the body shop.. We are getting the glass installed tomorrow morning and it is coming home. We are going to finish up the interior at the house. And then do the Pennsylvania state inspection and get her on the road for some shows. I appreciate everyone following along with the thread and giving input and advice. It truly was a good time working on this thing but just like all good things, I'm glad that is coming to a close. LOL I will give everyone finished pictures of the interior in the next couple of weeks in the 79 candy apple red build thread. Thanks again to Bronco mom, she made me get jumping on this Bronco build every single day so that I had updated pictures to share with everyone. And more importantly thank you to my daughter Ashley and Bob and Jimmy for doing fabulous work . Here she sits the way that she rolled out of the factory in 1979. Burgundy metallic with candy apple and sand pastel top. 1 of 4 in this color combination ever made. Quite possibly the only one left.
