Hey all! It's been a couple years since I've posted...or really even visited. So for those of you still around to remember me, and those who are new, here is a quick run down:

Live in the great state of Wershingtun (Washington)! Sure do love it here! I have owned my bronco, Magnus, for over 10 years and she has changed a teeny bit since the purchase date. At the current state, she is parked in the garage waiting to get an over haul. I am tinkering around with the idea of a stroker build out of my current 302, or seeing if I can find a good 351...or 460 I can swoop in and do a mild build out of? I don't have to worry about getting her back on the road anytime soon, so I have time and options. I did a SAS (and I don't mean the Sasquatch package) on her about 5 years ago? I can't complain. Went the route of an 8 lug 44 out of an F250, which had a "F350" badge... so it was an accident more than anything, wanted that 1ton! But she rolls on a 44/60 set of axles, 5.13 gears, locked and a set of 37s. I have sliders to melt on, just haven't done it yet!

Right now, the big problem is rust! It's truly cancer of the vehicle! I am looking into replacing the doors, tailgate and the rain gutters (can't think of their proper name at the moment) over the doors. Then a paint job to match all new panels.

Enough about me... some pics:

Forgot to mention... Wife got herself a First Edition 2021 Bronco, I got my truck back...So Maggy can get her love!

What a nice looking ride. On a related note, I would be such a more sad dude if I lived in a state sufficiently north to make vehicles disposable.

That's a coastal issue... not so much a PNW issue but I digress. Welcome home @JGR 🍻

It's great to be back. Been working a ton so I haven't started back on her.

The rust isn't horrible, but now that we have a couple vehicles to bounce around in it is definitely something I want to address.
