94 bronco build

so always been a yota guy... but i was given a 94 bronco and thought about building it for crawling, but don't know anything about broncos... so my question is... what axles, suspension, and any info about the transfer case (i.e. dual, or super low).... any info would help, thanks

It weighs 5k + so for crawling 1 tons are suggested.

Stock it has a dana 44 TTB front, 8.8 rear, tcase is a 208 or 1356?

Redbeast nailed it (1356 I believe, the 208 went out in '80-something ('87?))

The D44 & 8.8 are OK to about 35" tires tops on a fullsize. Definitely get a D60 and a 10.25" rear from a late-80s or '90s F-350 if you want to go bigger. The D60 and 10.5" rear from a '05up F-250/350 are worth considering as well (whatever you get, the rear needs the VSS/ABS sensor in it so your speedo works and the transmission shifts properly).

A FS bronco is gonna be a pretty big crawler though (especially decked out on 1-tons). It's gonna be a tight fit on Dusy/Ershim and some of the other trails in the Sierras, if that's where you think you might be going with it.

I think I saw D.D. Machine has a doubler kit for the 1356.

I have one of his kits for the 1354 in my Bronco II. Awesome stuff, very well made.

60 front 14 bolt or sterling 10.25 rear for your axles swap out the auto for an Np435 with 203/205 case, air shock rear/ Coil over front and fenders done by sawzall. yep that should do it.

if you are sticking with a somewhat stock suspension setup (sticking with coils and radius arms) and going sas'ed i'd look into bronco graveyard's deaver super flex coils and get a set of 70's radius arms to modify or just make your own.

fullsizebronco.com has a metric shit ton of build threads and sas threads to get ideas from that are vehicle specific. check em' out and try the search feature here. do a lot of reading before committing to anything. broncos are pretty damn popular so any idea you'll have has been covered at some point between the two sites.

I just take my time in the tight stuff. I have very little overhang past my tires. It climbs ledges great. I use to have a tj on coilovers linked with 39.5 tires at 106 inchs. My ford wheels alot better.

Go to http://www.jamesduff.com/newproducts/newproducts.asp, and check out their 78,79 radius arm kits. Go get yourself a D60/14 bolt and the "wedges" to weld onto the axle tubes. Use factory springs with no lift (damn thing is top-heavy anyways), but do a shackle flip or sliders and dump the sway bars. Or you CAN lift it and risk a flop, but it's not like a truck, you can't just get another bed...

if you need to keep this thing 100% functional you need to stick with a sterling rear end with a tone ring for the speedo and abs to still work.......


i've heard of using one in non-ford axles, but don't know much on it, try searching on it.
