Cliff Notes: Building 2 1979 Bronco’s, one prerunner with long travel TTB. The other as a trail rig/daily driver on 1-tons. Both of them with 545ci BBF’s.
This all started back in the late 80’s when my Dad picked up a 1979 Bronco, bone stock. The same Bronco that would take me home from the hospital when I was born, and I would grow up wrenching on.
He caught the 4x4 bug and spent years wrenching on it and building it to the point that I took it over at recently. I grew up there with him, learning how to wrench on it, and enjoyed trips all over the North West wheeling everything from the Oregon dunes, trails at TSF, and rocks in Moab.
At this point (around 2008) it had a strong running 460, an NV4500/Twin-stick Np205, trussed Ford 9” with 35 spline chromo’s, ex-Nascar Nodular 3rd, spool etc, and Cage Radius arms etc up front.
