Default Resurrecting the Bronco

So last year just before the dog party a buddy and I rebuilt a front Dana 44 from end to end because I had broke the shit out of the old one jumping it at silver lake the summer before. 5 o clock Friday night before the dog party were loading our trucks on the trailer and BOOM I blow the 3rd member out of the rear 9in. I go rob one out of a buddys truck and at 2am we load the truck back on the trailer. Have a blast at the dog party!! After that money gets tight so I sell the 44 put my buddy's axle back together and the bronco has sat on blocks ever since. So money's better now got a few awesome deals and now I'm going to built 60s and 44s!! Started last night putting the rear end in and mounting some big ass tires!!

Finally got the front king pin put in it the other night!! The drive shaft is 2in. To long so we cutting that down, have to make room up front for the bigger tires so we put in 9in, lift springs and now it's time to start cutting!! Going to take about 3in. Off the front fenders and about the same off te bumper. Out back I still have to weld on shock mounts and breaks all the way around and I hope there's enough time to cut the front tires before the dog party!!! Pics will be up later tonight!!
