1996 Ford Bronco - Soild Front Axle - Low Miles

I have a 1996 Ford Bronco with the 351 (5.8), auto trans, manual transfer case/hubs. I swapped the stock front twin traction beam (TTB) axle with a 1977 (best year) Ford F-150 Dana 44 solid axle. It will have 6-8" of lift when done. I updated the front axle with ball joints, wheel joints, seals, and bearings. There are 6" Deaver super-flex coil springs, James Duff extended radius arms, Ruff Stuff's chevy 1-ton steering, Ruff Stuff's shackle flip (rear), and much more! The bronco runs great! It also has typical rust, but only 98k original miles. I'm the second owner with a clean clear title. The swap is almost complete. All you would have to do is mount on the front shock towers, give it some paint, and measure/order shocks! I have lots of parts and all paperwork for the items I have purchased.

Please email me for more information and pictures: bbachem88@gmail.com

Asking $2,500 or possible trade?

Here are some rough idea's on prices for the parts you could sell:

- '77 D44 solid front axle that was partially rebuilt (welded wedges not the case style) - $200

- James Duff lower coil mounts/retainers - $50

- James Duff extended radius arms with heim-joints - $700

- F-250 Shock towers - $50

- Deaver Super-flex 6" lift coil springs (for '66 - '79) - $150

- Ruff Stuff Specialties Chevy 1-ton Steering setup for tie-rod flip and from a '96 Bronco - $100
Link: http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/YLINK.html

- Ruff Stuff Specialties Universal Track Bar Kit - $25

- I also have the $90 reamer tool for the Chevy 1-ton TREs - $50

They have 0 miles on them but have been installed for 2-3 months.


* I do have the stock front bumper, just now shown in picture.

Here are a few up to date pictures of the bronco project. I added a 2" block in the rear to level it out. Also I changed to 4 * C-bushings in the front. Finished welded the track bar mount and went over everything. Just needs to put up shock mounts and swap the yoke/gear change on the front/rear axles. And then alignment and drive! I left the shocks mounts off incase someone wants to run dual shocks. I do have f-250 mounts (brand new) sitting aside for the project if wanted. Still asking $2,500 but feel free to make an offer!

On to the pics:

Right now it drives good till about 20 mph. After that I'm to chicken due to no shocks. But I must have got it aligned somewhat close.
