This is a Bronco that Fat City has been working on. It should be done in about three weeks. Eric is the one in the picture and this is his creation. Have lots of pictures if you want more. On it's way to powder coat first thing tomorrow. This thing is sick!

Eric gave me permission to post the pics. I usually take them with the digital. His puter is broken right now so he can't post or reply to e-mails. He is on his way to farmington today.

Here are some more. He recently changed the entire rear suspension setup. It was what has taken so long. This thing is goint to be awesome when done. Something like 22" of ground clearence at the lowest point. I don't know a lot of specs but the power plant is a 351 bored and stroked to a 426. 450hp 500 torque,c-6,hydraulic front and rear steer,custom portal axles,42 swampers,and all kinds of other stuff.

that thing is unreal. that has got to be on the same par with the technology of todays monster trucks. any idea what something like that would cost?

that rear steer is state of the art.

i have got to see some pic's of it in action.
i bet it would handle at speed as well as the rocks. hell with the obvious light weight it would handle the jumps and woopdedoo's good too. thats it ask him to go launch it on a 150 footer so you can get some pic's. hahaha...

i think the bar has been raised.
super sweet.

Are those portal axles one-offs or are they based on Mog axles or something similar?

I don't know but Axle Jack from CTM is the one who built them.

Don't take this wrong, but is that frame engineered or just built? I'm curious if there's any real mechanical engineering in how many braces there are and where they're placed. Or is it just built by the rule of overkill?

Damn, I hope to get a tubing bender some day.

That axle setup just looks STOUT!!! Was it designed to any specs or just BIG AS HELL?

I'm no expert on them, but it looks like Unimog outters with a 9" center

Eric built the entire frame bumper to bumper. It's not overkill at all. It looks freaky but a lot of it has to do with all the zues (sp) clips. When the body gets placed on it after powder coat then i'll show you what i mean. It's built real stout all around. No offence taken. How can i? I'm just posting these pics cause this thing is so freaky lookin without the body on it.
