The first thing I did after driving it for along time was sand and rattle can the truck with primer.. After i removed the spear tire carrier and patched the holes (cops gave me 10 days to fix it (the latch was broken) when they were checking vehicles to see if they would make it up the logging road to go camping on some busy weekend).. Next came the 4" suspention lift I found at a local auto wrecker (it was on a ranger). Then i went and found some 33 x 12.5 bfg mud terrians. I had to cut the front fender for clearence and have been running that for awhile. Then I broke a rear leaf wheeling on the snow, so I swapped in some explorer leafs, which gave for some extra height

I picked up a 94 ford explorer the other day and am gonna do the 4.0L swap, dash with it and swap the axles. 3.73 LS.. chopped top and custom flatbed type of deal... I have seen alot of chopped bronco II's out there and got some ideas from alot of them but havent really seen one that I really liked.. so we will see what happens.

I started on guttin the bronco II lastnight I got the seats and some trim pannels out and the dash is almost out I just have to remove the steering collum and a few more wires.. should be done tonight and then remove all the carpet and the rest of the plastic trim, Rear windows and then start cuttin the back half of the body away.
