Anyone have trail rigs/projects out there?

Currently...my project of a year and a half is a 1971 bronco...lots of rust, rebuilt 302, twin stick t-case, 3 inch suspension, 2 inch body lift...hopefully can have it done and on 36's or so within a year.

any of you guys have projects?

WOW....who in the hell was typing that last night? :roflmao: :roflmao:

Anyway.......83 Ranger on 79 full size frame, fresh 390 BB Ford, sits on 36 inch Swampers. Almost donr, just needs radiator, fuel cell, and the roll cage put in. Hopefully it will be worth it when it's done. I got a feeling that 390 is gonna make that little Ranger haul some balls...cant wait!!!!!!!!

that's what I'm hoping for! We are more into mud than trails, but we do go on trail runs from time to time.

Just gotta find someone that can do a cage for me in it now............

I am in the process of puting my 75 Bronco back together. I am reworking the cage and I need to get the 1" body lift on. I also need new exhaust so the front driveshaft doesn't rub. This list is longer than I thought. Oh yea the 302 is VERY Tired. :barf:

A few Fords
