I got the rear up on jack stands waiting for today after work. Going to hopefully have the rear up in the air tonight.



And a few more random shots:

Wow it's really coming along, I love to see an old Bronco II lifted and looking so good. It's something I always wanted and makes me miss my 86' Ranger.

I got the add-a-leaf on yesterday (4-8-08). It was easier than I thought; first time ever installing an add-a-leaf. The back still gets the BellTech 6400 shackle, but i will probably do that after the alignment.











I also cleaned up the rear inner fender well and painted it black. It looks a ton better.

Before:



After:




Here is the truck with the tires on it and the add-a-leaf done. I measured the front and the fender opening now is setting at 40"








Here is my buddies '89 Bronco II 2wd. We are going to convert it to 4wd before the end of the summer. He is buying my Dana 28 when I get a Dana 35. Since he don't wheel, a Dana 28 is all he needs.

That lift kit made the bronco look so much better. Now you just need to get that belltech shackle in there and it will look amazing!

Ok you have now convinced me to get a BII, I'm thinking 5" lift and 33s would be good to go. What motor does your have in it?
