Ag4x4 Hey man, just checking to see if you have any updates about the bronco?

I also pm'ed ya.

Thanks!

Edit: (I went back and re-read this whole thread. I see now the bronco is RIP. Do you still have any parts? Springs etc? I would be very interested in your springs if you still have em! Im tearing my 79 F250 down in a couple weeks to do my 4-link) Thanks!

things I would do differently? well I am now going to shorter lower links, like 45" from eye to eye, and the heims are 1 1/4" QA1's on the lowers the uppers are like 32" from eye to eye and the rock krawler heims for the uppers, you could use 7/8 x 3/4 all the same, most everything else was good, wish I had a bit more horse power, but that is easy, I did like my propane, it worked great, and no issues with wiring or computers, just go juice, and dont buy wheels from usa6x6 unless you plan on waiting awhile for them, thats all that I can think of, again if you have any other questions please feel free to ask, later man, and good luck.

thanks for the help, was gonna do shorter links also due to my shorter wheel base which is 112" so your new measurements are gonn be about spot on. When I come back from deer huntin in Wyoming in a couple weeks I'll shoot you an offer on the coil buckets. Are all four new JBG or did ya reuse your fronts? I'm sandblasting the frame at Thanksgivin so I'll see what condition mine are really in. Gonna need at least one set anyway, sooner then later.

79 Bronco on 49's
lower links: 60" long, 2" OD x .500" wall
uppers: 48" long x 1.5" OD x 3/8" wall
double ram steer setup, 2.5"x1.5"x8" stroke
USA 6x6 rims 20x14 2 piecers with 7" backspace hubs WERE flipped
rock krawler hiems 1" shank, 9/16" bolt
rear coil buckets lowered 3" used JBG coil buckets (to bad they dont sell them anymore!)
134" wheel base roughly (stock plus 30")
1410 yokes for the 205 case
rear springs were from an '05 ford SD 4x4 front, stock coils
front springs were 6" lift springs

all that i gathered, hope you dont mind me copying it some. I hate to build wrong and spend money that I dont have to repair it. Your's worked well and is/was very cool looking. Is there anything you broke or would do differently had you to do it again? Thanks for your help!

TacomaJoe95 Im all out of vacation time. I used it all for the hammers. But wait im the BOSS I can do what ever I want(I wish). Im going to be starting a build thread soon. Ive been waiting for the chasis to be completed before I start one.
05-18-2007 01:37 PM
jrod66 buggy is lookin good joe, what you should do is take some vacation time and finish it up, I like the design alot, I might steal some of your ideas for the saturn buggy, you got a buildup for yours yet?
05-05-2007 11:46 AM
TacomaJoe95 The rig is looking good Joe. Its too bad my shit came back all beat to shit after this hammers run. I knifed two tires and got one with 15 plugs in the side wall. But on a good note when I got home my new STAK was waiting here for me. You need to come by and check it out. I will be at MP later this afternoon working on the buggy you should come by.
