I was wandering around Ford country looking for some 78-79 bronco Ideas and I found this.

Your family will have more fun with that than you ever thought


I bet I know what it will look like when you finish

How is it possible for you to do such quality fab work, yet be so shitty at taking fawking pictures? Seriously. If I was building something of that magnitude I would at least try and document it as thoroughly as possible.

Nice build anyhow, at least what I can see of it...

All I had was pics of your buggy from ttc, and you tube video but I loved your buggy and driving style, if it works half as good as yours did we will have a ball. Wis I could have talked to you on some of the details when we were lost at times ha ha.

I know , I know, but in a small defense only had a phone and took pics after working on the buggy 10 to 12 hours, then sitting around for awhile having a beverage or two and saying "dang I ought to take some more pics" lol.

Very nice build, did you end up using the evo heims or the 3" johnny joints? Also did you stick with the 2" .250 wall DOM for your links?

no offense but I would have made you upper bar that goes from the A-pillar to the C-pillar then to the back all one piece then added teh hoops. you current design will cause the buggy to get hung up on the sides, vs just sliding the whole way past an obstacle.

wow !!! looks sweet, did you get it lowered or did it come out good with motor and fluids? how is your rear stear set up, as far as how it will work, off the stearing wheel or a lever and a centering ram, if that makes sence? where is the cooler going thats the main concern
