Well i pulled the steering box off today to put the new ported one on and found a bunch of cracks in the frame. Chased all the cracks out with a grinder and welded them all up. Dont have any pics but i will when i get the rest of the hydro steering on.

Well Steering is all done. I decided not to put a ram on now. Going to just run the new box and pump for now. Just finished the cage install and paint job. The Bronco is now "Oliver Tractor Green". 8 point cage is hammer tone gray and so are the sliders. Now it is time for me to put the gears put in before the my badlands trip. Ill get some pics up this weekend.

I think it has more dents now than it did when i left the island. Oh well. One bad thing is the doors no longer fit. Now i got to put a third seat in for the little one.

Looking real good Collin. Doors don't fit = perfect time for tube doors. Looks like you got your bender mastered.

Its coming along nicely im going to add more to the cage. I bought the cage already bent for way cheaper then i could have even bought the tube for. MY friend had it built last year and i got a good deal on it when he scraped his bronco.
