Yes grandkid safe, not my pant leg it belongs to a fellow FTE member.

The hillbilly bug is for fun for sure.

Middle roll bar legs are now tied to the frame. Plan on the front legs of the roll cage and the home made rock sliders, and tie all that into together.

Something like the last 3 pics?

Also going to change the front bumper to match the rear.

Yes I am still working the frame tie in... I am not done with it. I am going to cut the rockers and make the sliders tie in to the frame like the blue bronco set up, but trying to catch the front cage down pipes in the process.

I might just boat side it from the bottom of the rocker and run 1/8 sheets to the bottom of the frame. And use a old F250 trans cross member as a trans out put skid shield.

Also need to put a drag pan on the aft fuel tank, I ditched the aux under the dvrs seat.

Tool boxes repaired from being made to fit around the old roll bar and back in. Ditched the rear bench and going with some Super Cab jump seats.

Here is what needs cut out of the dvrs side fenderwell tool box (for a full size truck) to make them fit.

And no tailgate of course, but great way to get some storage. I can fit a 5 gal military gas can and a spare set of complete front and rear d/s...and a ton of other stuff....

I was "test driving" the 2 small ammo boxes, they are not going to be used.

Got the old front bumper off and about ready with the square tubing that is going inside the frame to be welded to the new front bumper, it will look just like the rear one.

Yes the bumper/frame/body lines are off, it has had a hard life and been twisted a few times and more hard times are coming. It has a 1" spacer?? on the dvrs side and a worn out factory rubber one on the passenger side. I though about pulling the 1" spacer but the frame is tweaked already, so there is no real fixing it.

Got the rear bumper set up with a double lock pin for the receiver winch plate and got the front bumper welded on. Will do the double pin trick on it too, also made some reinforcement passes on the front and rear "D" rings.

Kicked around a "stinger" idea and decided to kick it into the corner of the shop for now, untill I can get some other angles bent up. Also had to relocate the spare tire mount a little higher up, it hit the top of the winch being so low.

Yes I have to clean up the bottom of the winch plate, it had a alternate trailer mount leg that will be a snag hazard now. So now I have to redo the trailer winch mount set up.

Just have to wire the Bronco with front and rear QD's for the power.

continued developments

Movin fast now, bet ur a fast tracker when not playin too (@ work).

Beefin up those D rings looks like for pullin others out, big red looks
'fully capable' now!

I thought those full sz tool boxes reduced departure angel but the pic show that's not so, thanks.
Now that I know the extra few inches can still work I'd like to look-in on that idea for mine (log chain, chain saw, etc)...

They are standard full size pick up steel fenderwell tool boxes. I got mine off the Craigslist for 50 bucks for both (sweet deal) IMO, compared to the below prices. They are 48" x 8", 38 " might work with a tailgate? Here they are made by Delta.http://www.sears.com/delta-850000d-4...&blockType=G23

Wheel Well Tool Boxes

Test driving it around the back 40 today I managed to plug the front receiver full of dirt. I am coming up with a steel plug or mini bumper skid plate to keep it ready to take the winch.

If that winch/receiver plate was not so heavy (est 100+ lbs) I would on mounted a holder/receiver to the middle of the spare tire mount (old axle face) to carry it out of harms way.

But that would be way to high to get it up in there by myself, so it's going to be hanging off one end or the other.
