i also like that rear tank skid, will have to check that out.
Yeah, you should! It's a great piece and a great price. Greg at Desolate also knows what he's doing :thumbupi also like that rear tank skid, will have to check that out.
Yeah, the recent stuff is in Hollister SVRA. I'm sure the older stuff is too since it's the closest to my home.Are most of those photos taken in the off road park in Hollister? Years ago I had thought about taking my '83 there but the guy I talked to asked what I was going to bring and when I told him it was a FSB, he chuckled and said "good luck".
Fixed that issue with some spare body mount hardware courtesy of @Tchajagos and Prothane poly mounts. More details here – https://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/7-1980-96-bronco-tech/499802-body-mount-replacement-new-hardware.html
I have 18" of travel and properly valved 2.5" shocks and hydraulic bumps, so it's smooth as butter. Probably could have hit it 15 MPH faster if I could have gotten around the bend a little hotter.You look almost like it's gliding across the bumps. How do they feel? Does the Bronco just absorb most of it? Or does the whole thing shake?

I'll have to hit some whoops again with a dash camera.
3. I installed one as a reverse & camp set up light on the passenger side of the rear bumper. Works great.
4. I installed the other as a dust light (safety light) on the drivers side of the rear bumper. It has a red lens right now but it kills a lot of output. Will be going to a standard amber lens instead.
Seth, I priced my kit out on Solo Motorsports and it came out to about $9,500 for everything. I'm sure Desolate is similar in pricing. I bought my set up used (test fitted but not used) for much much cheaper. I'd suggest heading to GoFastBroncos or Race Dezert and keeping your eyes peeled for the main components as they are all rebuildable for very little money (shocks, Deaver packs, C&T beams, etc.).So Stan... My end goal is basically your set up. I love it. I looked up a full desolate suspension and it seems about $11k all done. Is that basically what you have at this point suspension wise?
Glad I could help. Not sure of your budget, but you could definitely save a few bucks by doing the following:Man that is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. I now have a shopping list.
:thumbup Honestly I'd just start with some C&T beams, heimed radius arms, and then keep a good coil/quad shock up front. You won't have as much travel, but ride quality will be good and you won't run into all the small detail quirks and bigger bucks of going long travel. As time goes on, you'll be able to easily transition to coilovers and have a nice price-stepping structure.Yea I'm not in an area where you go fast off road. I basically want a lot of travel and a smooth ride on road. I've got 10 years to do this before my son can drive so it's gonna take some time.
