didn't you take pictures?

here is the progress of the bumper. I know it's a couple of weeks old. I'll get some more updated stuff soon this weekend. If it woudl quit raning I'd take it for a test run.....

ok so it's more about the superwinch.... :)


bumper is done except for the fairlead in the picture
I'll get some of the finished bumper and the rockers which turned out pretty decent I think. Jake

Adam and Jeremy came over last weekend and got the T-case gears installed and Jeremy bent some tube for the rockers while I was working on the front bumper. Thanks a ton guys. Oh yeah Adam tested out the front bumper on my firehydrant too....

Okay finally had the big debut of the rig last weekend so I'll let loose of the pictures now :)

here's a couple of the second test run. Still have yet to spend anytime on dry ground with it yet. :(

It's working really well but we are still waiting on the machine shop to finish building our adapter for the dana 300. Once that is done we will be ready to go!

I knew I had to have a way to disengage the rear. Hopefully some time soon I can work on getting it to turn better and getting rid of the spools in the axles would help too.

Thanks lou. Looking forward to meeting you as well. In the future I have got to spend some time to get the car to turn better but for now I am going to work on getting th bronco put together. It is looking pretty sad in the corner next to the tracker.

The tracker shaft is turned down and the dana 300 shaft was bored out to make an interference fit. Then it was welded at the base and the tip. The news ones will be a new shaft just didn't have time or money to get it done for this round.

Jason it's the tall one in the middle I am worried about... :)
