SAS 1 of 3

Starting my SAS on my 87 Bronco 2. Then I'm doing my free 2wd 98 Ranger. I got free rear 4.10s from work. And I picked up a 74 Bronco D44 with 4.10s and radius arms for $200. 33x10.50-15 BFG M/Ts with 95% tread for $220. Should have the brakes converted to disc by next week. Still need coils. Ordered DOM and heims to make steering and trac bar. Need batterys for camera so I can get pics. And we're doing my roommates S10 with the waggy D44s from my old 93 SAS Ranger whenever he gets gears.

Picked up both disc brake knuckles, calipers, 4" coil springs, hubs/rotors, 1 caliper bracket(still need one bad), and a dropped radius arm crossmember mount. All for $100. Just need spindles and passenger caliper bracket. Axle is cleaned, blasted, painted, and put together up to the knuckles.

Got my spindles and caliper brackets on the way. Got free Alcoas off of a 96 F150, and free aluminum DeeZee brushguard. About to start on the patch panels for the quarter. Hopefully paint it tomorrow. I'm going with Massey Ferguson Metallic Grey.

Yea I know. Anywho, it got dark so this is all I got done. Pretty much self explanitory. This is my first attempt ever at any type of body work so I figured I'd practice on my trail truck. Got the panels free at work off a Ranger.

Got the rest of my steering and trac bar stuff. Sold the Alcoas and another Bronco I had the tires on, so now I need tires and wheels again. Got the steering and trac bar done, now I just need to put it in and measure and cut and weld. Truck is getting paint this weekend.

I'm painting tomorrow. Half done sanding. Thinking of duralining the rocker, so I did it real quick to see how it looks. I think I'll keep it. Steerings as far along as I can get without putting it under the truck.
