Default My son's 1977 Early Bronco Build

Here are the starting pics. He's done all the work with supervision from me.

This is the only pic we have from the original 1977 Early Bronco Ranger



2006: (Age 10) picked up the chassis



2006: (Age 11) Stripped it down in 1.5 hours



2006: Next the frame was acid-dipped and galvanized
(It's behind the tractor, better pic to be updated tomorrow)



2007: (Age 11) Then the frame was epoxy coated black



2007: We had 4.10 gears installed in the big bearing 9" rear and converted back to a '77 disc D44 front (the original chassis had the front end swapped out) NO PICS.

2008: Oil fill and drain added to 9"



2008: (Age 12) POR-15 to the axles and radius arms









2008: (Age 13) Installed 2.5" Wild Horses suspension lift
