Another of the rear hatch. Probably not worth all the effort, but it was different.

Like how mean are we talking?!

Rick and I have been building this bronco over the last few years in between other projects, so it has not been an increadibly fast build, but it has been gathering speed over the last couple months. We hope to have it done in time for the Baja 250 next year. Thanks to all for the compliments.

Very Nice!! Good Work!!



I see some extra steel on that TTB, is that your modifications, or did you buy the parts some where? Just curious to know if there are some suppliers out there still?
