Why not look for another EB body?
It seems like more of a devalue of the truck in my mind
not to mention that than everyone will think you are driving a Ranger rather than a cool ass Bronco.

I have seen people do that with Bronco II bodies tho....
I never really saw the point in that either.....

try www.therangerstation.com . they used to have a ranger on a fullsize bronco , a bronco 2 on an eb ( probably the best bet , wheelbase is within a couple of inches) .
here's my excab ranger on a b2 frame.....

i believe an eb is 94" and a b2 is 96".

Sorry to hijack but,
Shon have tou started cutting your cowl yet? I haven't had time to take my clip back off, and so I haven't got a pic yet. Also I left my camera at my brothers while I was out of town this weekend. So I don't know when I could get a pic.

[hijack on] not yet. waiting on the oil filter adapter , then i'll sit the motor in. my cherry picker does'nt have enough lift to drop the 5.0 over the grille. so this was a good excuse to copycat yours . i need to swap wire and hook up the gas and practice a little before i tear into the cowl . .030 flux core with my lack of skill is pretty pathetic i appreciate you remembering , i'm optimisticly thinking at least 3 weeks out for me.[/hijack off]


RLBronco - if you can't find pics post back. i may be able to dig up a few.
