I have more pics of my other Broncs, but my internet is being blocked by trees.Thinking about starting on repairing some of the rust on the '91 soon. Also starting a "shopping list" for a trip to the salvage yard. The kid needs some parts for his '84 I gave to him to fix up. (I gave $300 for it,)

That is an awesome looking Bronc! You must be very proud of it! How much work have you done to it? how much did you pay for it?

Just minor up grades, undecided on whether to go with 31's or 33's, pretty much keeping it close to original. I am looking for another Bronco to make a play toy out of.

Still looks good. 31s for better gas mileage....hmmmm...

Lots of Broncos for sale on Craigslist. Check out the Valdosta Craigslist...unless you saw some on Brunswick.

Then you re-geared or your math is bad. 33's push either of the stock V8's below their power band causing no end of shift hunting between 30-45 mph not to mention the loss of climb and pass power unless you force a downshift by stomping on it.

ErrorS is starting off with a positive reputation.
Yeah, 33s are pretty miserable for me. I can't say it's end of the world bad, but you can definitely tell the gearing and motor combo aren't set up for them. Though to be honest, my 3.55s and stock 31s were not fun either.

Oh uh, I do have to say greystreak, my mileage isn't horrible with 33s and 3.55s. After getting everything worked out with my EGR and smog pump(for those that wanna argue, found out it defaults to 100% runtime when not hooked up right, was hurting my mileage) I think I'm in the double digit mileage for cruising around town.
