my project bronco

about a month ago i traded my old snowmobile for a 1996 full size bronco. it has a 5.0 with 170000 miles. the chassis is solid. the only rust on it is above the rear wheel wells. it has 33x12.5 on it and it came with a 4'' lift that im gona put on.

heres a few pictures of trailering it up to my friends house (kyledm18). trailer was a little small haha.

nah.. it sat on the trailer pretty good, it didnt even move the whole ride we made shure to strap it in good.

yup and hopefully tomorrow we will have all the dents pulled and start all the bondo, then find a windshield and get some paint!, then lift and 35's, and maybe some gears...
