Default trailrail 2.0 EB build....

I have allways had a sweet spot for the early broncos. So I picked up a 74 bronco. the game plan is to biuld custom frame tube it all out. Basically a tube chassis with bronco skins.
I plan to stretch it to around 110-115 WB
I would really like to get my hands on a new Ecoboost motor.
60's are all ready waiting to go under
plan to do coil over front and trailing arm rear suspension.
this is the game plan we will see how close I stick to the plan...lol

Here are a couple pics from when I picked it up.

If you would sell your RZR you could afford a nicer starter vehicle.
