What could this be? Well its a nice little bump for teh thread that's what it is.

I've been on the prowl for the past week and it payed off. I found the early bronco 9" for a price I couldn't pass up. Only paid 200 for it. Not bad considering it has 3:50 gears and a nice limited slip that I can sell. The truck was bought in 68, and was put in a barn in Louisiana in 73 and never touched again. I should have bought the whole damn bronco but he was asking to much for it. Axle has 50k on it and has some mild surface rust, what vehicle doesn't from 68. But anyways I have the axle delima out of the way.

On to the pics:

And for all you skeptics out there it is a l/s with 350s

Nice find. That gear ratio won't be too bad actually. I'd go to 3.73's, the 4.10's would be too low

I meant 4.11's sorry.

My F250 has 4.11's and I like them, but if I was doing something for mudding, I'd get 3.55's. But for trail riding and rock crawling 4.11's are perfect.

I have to check myself on these gear ratios since they aren't like Ranger gears lol

I hate mud, but the farm trucks have to deal with em lol.

You're definitely gonna have fun with this, but it won't take long till you'll be craving the bigger motors. Ever since my buddy let me drive both his 390 and his 460 around, I've been wanting to start another project lol

No im not running full widths. The d44 measures ~ 62" wms-wms and the eb 9" is ~ 60" wms-wms so they'll be close

So bad ***! I wish I had the time and garage space to throw down on a project like that. I'm truly jealous of what this truck will end up as. Great find, will definitely be following this build.
