I know a red one that needs a 'family cage".
Didn't know there were any other bronks in yer neighborhood. "Ol Green" only reminds me of a bronk.
Will your tool boxes need adapting? be left off? fit jusss fine?

Ol red just helped with the side flip and then I actually pulled it out by hand. After I torched some bolts and the the frame tie in connections.

I am narrowing down the cage to work with my tool boxes. And only using the mid and aft bars.

Yes it has disk brake conversion up front, power brake booster angle mount, power steering and a F150 steering box. Top flop steering and elec fan, trans and p/s coolers.....

The only jerry riggin IMO is the trac bar drop bracket, its cobbled up, but fixable.

Considering the condition it was in when I got it (real dead) it has came a long way IMO.

To close for comfort to the Bronco and yes the silver truck got some damage from the carport coming back down on its roof.

The r/h side of the bronco carport came off the ground a few inches too.

Strange tornado wind damage......
