Doesn't look to bad, wheel base could use a trim but other wise doesn't look to bad for bummin' around.

has potential for sure. just a few things need changed. but its beat up for a reason. because it was used the way it was meant to. thumbs up for that.

^exactly. I'd kinda be pissed to see it not beat up, unless it was just rebuilt or built.

I'm a firm believer in using trucks to their fullest extent, even in stock trim.

Odd that he has como's runnin 35's. My guess is that he had something bigger than that before. All of the clearances look excessive as well.

yeah nothing wrong with it really. and nothing is excessive about it. its built to be a rock crawler. nothing more. nothing less. and it was obviously used for what it was built to do.

sadly but not sadly thats where my truck is heading.

I think its pretty bad ***. EXCEPT.. 77 bronco means low pinion D44, and a 28 spline 9".. could have chose better axles. but he could have chose worse hah

i would rock it, if he wasn't looking for so much money..

naw, I want chromos for my 35s.. I'm scared to really beat on it very much.

just a little too much lift IMO.. could be lower with some trimming.. but if its really 4 linked then you cant go very low.

Yeah it looks like it is 4 linked, looks like he is running air shocks too. If it is built like he said it is, then it looks like a well built rig thats for sure.
