Been working on the bronco II...

well heres some updated pics of my rig, i bought her and she needed a little work done, so ive been pretty busy

the day i bought her


whatever kind of lift they had on it fawkn suckd, so i pulled it off and kept the 2" spacers and took out the double aal's from the rear. i just put some spare tires and rims off my old ranger on her for now. had alot of surface rust on the hood, and a few dents and dings so i did some body work





still have some rust on the roof i have to get off


she didnt have any carpet when i got her, and i got tired of all the heat comming off the floorboard, and i had some rolls of carpet from when i changed the carpet out in my living room, so i cut one big piece, did some measuring, and voila! soft on the feet





hopefully ill finish the body work and desert tan this weekend, then im doing the mirrors, bumpers, grill guard flat black, and putting the repainted window trim back on. i ran out of carpet adhesive, so i still have to flatten the carpet on the drivers side of the tranny hump to make it look right, but in all she's comming along pretty good

had some kind of boogety 3" lift with washers and 2" spacers, kept the spacers for now. want to go with either how it sits now with 30x9.50 BFG at's or go 4" skyjacker with the 31's i have. going to do the duraspark as soon as i get the carb, redo my exhaust and get duff headers, duff rear tire carrier, and a roof rack and some lights and call it done for now

man the carpet is so nice, i have a thermometer on my dash and before carpet it would get to 110-115* inside stopped in traffic (in 97* weather), now it only gets up to about 85-90*, makes a big diffeence, plus it looks better then wires and that thick tacky crap ford calls heat reducer. so much more pleasureable to drive

i hope to have it ready soon, as im going to north carolina to visit family and have to go right through troy...uwharrie here i come!
