My 79 Bronco and it's final rebuild


Below are pictures of the rebuild and the way it looked before the Illinois Dept. of Transportation said park it or loose it. They stated that it was too tall. At the time it had a 4 inch suspension 3 inch body lift with a set of 38 inch Mudders. Power came from a 351 Cobra Jet engine, 5:13
gears, and a locker in the rear, and a whole lot of other goodies.

My Wife and I joke a lot about memorable incidents with it. Primarily this one. One morning when she went to drive it, I told her how to start the engine (bad idea on my part LOL), she said "I know how to start it " then proceeded to smash the gas pedal to the floor and hit the key......Oh shit she forgot to depress the clutch pedal. The result's ......the Bronco lunged forward resting the bumper on top of the trunk lid of our car. Thank goodness it wasn't in first gear
or it might have put the front tires in the trunk. OH..Well, she said she wanted a new car... LOL.

Over the years we have done about everything there is to do with a 4x4. We've taken it to numerous shows, even won a few first and second places, mudded, hill climbed, pulled, had a snow plow on for several years. In fact the snow plow paid for the truck. As time allows I will post selected pictures of past events.

We are currently doing a frame off restoration/customization. This is the 4th time we have made major modifications to the truck, this being the biggest. Some of the modifications include replacing the current lift with a new 4 inch Superlift  suspension lift , 39.5x15 Iroc's on 15x10 wheels, A 466cu.in. 550+hp , with goodies such as a gear drive, Trick Flow heads and intake, MadDog Headers, and a whole lot more. The transmission is a custom built c-6 by "http://www.broncocity.com" Bronco City using TCI Components and shift kit with a 2600speed stall converter . A Detroit locker in the 9in rear, loc-rite in the Dana 44 up front with 5:13 Richmond gears in both . The frame has been sand blasted and panted to match the body with key mount's accented in dark purple. All bushing were replaced with color matched polyurethane. Many other goodies have been or will go into our family toy.... I'm currently recovering from a 14month battle with cancer and hopefully soon  I will post pictures of the restoration and finished project

My Son Josh and Daughter Ashlee gave me 5 new wheels for my truck for Christmas

 

Josh gave me a complete transmission rebuild kit. Josh built this trans to handle the Big Block
