Default JUICE - The Bronco Build

Well it looks like Iím going back to a fullsize rig, at least for awhile.

My brother was looking to off this thing and I needed a new rig.

This isnít exactly what I want in a rig, so I will try to adapt it to the needs I want out of a rig, wheel it until I either get bored or want something else.

Way back when, I did a bunch of work to this thing, and then it pretty much just sat in storage. I want a vehicle I can wheel, and cruise around in the summer with the top off, and since Iím so familiar with this particular vehicle, it seemed like a natural choice.

Specs:
1994 Ford Bronco

DRIVETRAIN:

Engine - 302 V8
Trans - E4OD Auto Ė Seems to have a shift kit already???
T-case - Borg Warner 1356 Electric shift
Rear Axle - Sterling 10.25, 4.10 gear
Front Axle - Hybrid D44/D50 TTB with chevy 8 lug outers

LIFT:

2Ē Coil spacer in front
Lift block and AAL in rear

Thatís pretty much it, I donít think itís been on more than one wheeling adventure either, and that was a drunken mistake on my brothers part, but this was the outcome.



Snofari is pretty much going to be a cherry poppin event for this thing


If I donít like wheeling a fullsize, or canít handle the power of a V8, then Iíll give it back to my brother and keep looking for a new rig.

Hereís a pic that I was emailed a few weeks ago when it finally saw some daylight.


Iíll probably post lots of pics as I take them; Iím hoping to pick it up from cold storage tomorrow.







So, on the to-do list for Snofari:
  • Figure out why it wonít start
  • Check all fluids
  • Insurance
  • Transfer Plate and Title
  • CB Radio
  • Mount interior tire carrier
  • Spare Tire
  • Recovery kit, tool box tie downs
  • General roadworthiness/maintenance checks
If this makes it to full project status Iíll have to think of a clever name.







Future build ideas may include, but not limited to:
  • Family style roll cage (that still fits under top)
  • D60 Front
  • NP205 T-case
  • 5.13 regear
  • Lincoln lock the rear
  • Grizzly locker up front
  • 460 BBF
  • C6 with E4OD low gearset
Shoot for sitting lowish on 37Ē tires

I remember when you guys were doing the front end work at your old place. My jeep was sitting next to it in your garage for a couple of days (thanks again by the way).

Also JUICE is not available but 9JUICE4, 94JUICE, JUICE94, and SMGLOVE (small glove) are available.
