DBrown's BII

Postby DBrown » Tue Aug 31, 2004 7:42 pm

as it sits in the pic it has a 4.0L, 3" suspension lift, 3" body, 4.10's on-baord-air, rear mounted battery, extended stainless break lines, GPS, and a chopped top. basicly I just wheeled the pis out of it. now I am ready to take it to the next level. so right now I have it many pieces out back.

here is a pic of it before I tore it apart again:

here is the frame and driveline I am planning on using for the BII. 79 FS Bronco. HP D44, 31 spline 9", NP435, 205. it has a 351M in it right now but I have a 302 form a couger I plan on droping in it. the EFI will come in a few months. also plan on setting up the 9" with a 3 link set up, radius arms and a track bar.

just to let you know if thats a 351M your 302 wont bolt up to your tranny because the 351M run the big block pattern.

here it is with stock suspension. ordered my bushings today so the springs will be on their way soon. still have to alter the stearing shaft, hook up the clutch, fab up the two front body mounts, and finish the suspension.

thanks,
I think I am going to go with the Broncograveyards 4" super flex springs and keep the 351M. so the tires might not look right when I get them on, but we will see......I can always get bigger tires :redneck:

I noticed that you are gonna run 35's. Any reason for that? I run 37's ,but a lot of people around here will run 38's with a 44/9. I chose to run the 37s because I felt that my axles would live longer than if I used a bigger tire. With the 35'sn your Bro,your axles should survive well.

I thought about going bigger and I might still. I choose 35's for now because I want the internals of my axles to last. 35's will get the job done I think, but after I graduate and start making more money I will probably upgrade the meat. right now I like how it sets, but I need better coils and leafs so I will be lifting another 4". I don't know if it is going to look right with the 35's, so a decission will probably be made at that time also. the 35's I have on it now were free, so it's not any cash lost.
