Default Bronco almost ready for dunes

Well here it is after a long hard 2 years of work, pretty much a total rebuild.
76 fiberglass, 408W(500hp) C-4, 3500 stall, 4:56 gearing locked front and rear, Still have some minor issues to tend to, but ready for the dunes. Still have to paint the body(for now its rattle can black).

long story short, I ended having some problems with the motor(not your fault). I had it put together by someone that I will not name, and it was a mess. he lied about what he did and cheated me on some parts.. so I had to take it back out. I ended up taking it to my engine builder(built up my race motors). and we decided to stroke it to 408. put it on the dyno and pulled 498hp and 520tq on pump gas..

Yes its the alt that I got from you. I wish that I would have bought that oil pan, that was another problem that I had(long story).

I plan on going back up to silverlake over the 4th with the paddle tires..

another note: found out why the fan contacted the shroud, I had a broken motor mount. Too much hp for the stock stuff.
