so this is my favorite of my 3 broncos its the all mighty 5th gen

i bought this one for only $700. she had went through hell with the previous owner so i rescued it and put a lil money into her and did some wheeling and dealing to get her to where she is currently.

let me start off with some info, its a 93 xlt full size bronco, 302 5.0, 4x4(obviously), 4" lift( unsure of brand) 33x12.50x15(brand new bighorns) E40D(rebuilt installed a few months ago)

WHAT IT NEEDED:
when i picked this truck upit needed a heck of a lot more than just TLC i had to replace the transmission, water pump, starter, starter solenoid, engine speed sensor,exhaust, air intake box and hoses, tires, ball joints, rear main seal, etc etc the list goes on and on, but the body was in great shape and so was the interior :itsatrap

WHAT I DID(MECHANICAL): I replaced all of the above mentioned other than the exhaust and the ball joints, i just sprung a nasty oil leak from my oil pan gasket and anyone that knows about these particular vehicles you pretty much have to take the engine out just to do said oil pan gasket, so i figured what the heck might as well do an entire seal kit while its out, so this week ill be picking up my kit some fresh oil and a filter and im gonna get the wild hair up my ass to paint the engine while its out so ill end up doing that too, my exhaust also comes in this week im going to do a complete exhaust replacing everything from the manifolds and going to headers all the way to the exhaust tip. damn that was a little chunk of change spent all at once

WHAT ELSE I HAVE DONE:
i have rigged up a light bar on the roof,im kicking it old school for now without the LED setup, ran it to its own fuse panel and relay.

taken some old junk military vehicle parts from scrap and fabricated them to my use in my truck(i have pics)

ive removed all the carpet, stripped the paint out of the bed area behind the front seats and back with some good ole kick ass aircraft remover, man oh man is that sh*t brutal lol, i ordered raptor liner and layed down a few good coats of bed armor,still waiting to do the front until after the exhaust has been installed.

turned my shoulder seat belts in the rear into double lap belts cause i plan on keeping the top off a lot


MY IDEAS FOR MY RIG:
i consider this not only one of my many toys but also a recreational, camping, cruising, bug out rig.:thumbup

with me being in the mechanized infantry unit in the army i get the opportunity to dig through all the old bent and beat up damaged body parts that get thrown into the trash pile, a few papers signed later and i have some pretty neat parts for my bronco:rockon :armed

i have thought up and also have researched many ideas for add ons to my rig. everything from secret compartments to custom bumpers, skid plates, spare tire racks roof racks all kinda stuff

but enough of me blabbing time for pics
