    Default 1969 Full width bronco

    So here is my intro/build thread. I grew up in Kent city up in north kent county and it looks like I may be moving back there after I exit the Marine Corps in June 2012. But enough about me.
    I got this 69 bronco about 4 years ago, it had a crate 302, dana 30 front, 9in rear, ghetto ass 5.5 inch lift with those god awful radius arm drop brackets and a set of 33's. This is how it looked when I got it, it didn't stay that way for long. I'll try to post some more of my rigs progression through time when I can.

    Now I have a 74 that I drove in High school and had a very basic knowledge of automotive workings but I had no Idea what I was in for, like death wobble.
    It quickly became clear to me that everything on this poor rig had been completely half ass'd. this is where the work set it.

    the first thing i did was replace the rear springs with some Wild horses 5.5 lift 11 pack rears

    Then I put on some badly worn boggers and cut the fenders. Those boggers made me hate my life, I also added power steering with my own 4x4x 2 box build.

    Scary as hell, previous owners can leave the nicest of gifts to be discovered... like obliterated track bar bushings.

    Got a few more pics, right now she is all torn apart getting 4.88 gears with an aussie locker front 31 spline detroit rear and working new shock hoops as well as rock sliders. She also got some 3/4" hiems and .250 dom for new steering, getting this crap in Hawaii is a real pain...

    Yeah no doubt, also lengthened the trac bar when I did the axle swap.

    Edit: also forgot, I swapped in an Np435 and full on msd ignition to liven up the 302, I have a nice little mill to replace the 302 with though

    The thought of a dove tailed front and rear with full width axle rig is mighty tempting, but I am going to save that dream for my tube buggy in the future. That one will have early bronco skins for sure as well.

    Funny you mention that I just threw some 2" ones up front! I have 5 H1 rims that I got though so my new tire combo will have 3.5' backspacing when I re-center them. I'll run some 37x12.50R16.5 goodyear cheapos that we run on the HMMWV's unless I can get my paws on some better rubber from the motor pool. Those tires and rims on there now are going to be for sale after I complete the 2 piece rims.

    Edit: I won't be re-centering the rims in Hawaii though, the centers are 3/8" pressed steel, I don't want to know what it would cost to ship those...
