Not to dog you or anything, but please tell me you're upgrading that bronco's drivetrain and thats why you dont need it, because it'd be a shame to butcher that beautiful peice of machinery!

Yeah, I wish he was closer to me. I've been wanting to convert a Bronco to two-wheel drive. It looks like a nice one, too.

Good luck with the build! Is it my imagination, or has the bed been extended? Did somebody take a Supercab and put it on a Crew frame?

*Edit: Never mind. On closer inspection that's something hanging over the side of the bed, not a seam.

ok so heres the bronco story. the body is all aftermarket light steel crap, that someone bought and used for a very half assed project. they had a 94 f350, cut the frame about 3 feet and tried to weld on all new body mounts for it, it came out like crap, and has about 5-6 inches of body lift for it to fit, i drove it about 35 miles so far and im just scared the body is gonna fall right off. ill be honest with you the pic of the bronco is one that makes it look a lot better than it is. ill get some close ups later if im home before dark. but ANYWAYS it has a 7.3 turbo IDI in it with a 5 speed, and dana 60 axles. so the guy had the right intentions, just hacked it together. of course i wouldnt be doing it if it was factory drivetrain.

the worst part is the cab on the supercab has a lot of odd ball rot that i havent seen before/ intimidated by. mostly this piece, its above the drivers side door under the rain gutter. anyone know of any skins for this one or am i on my own?

There isn't anyone making patch panels for that as far as I know

How about some pics of the frame hackery done to the poor Bronco?

the picture thing is quite a process today, at work they block the image site so i had to upload from my phone. as you can see though the bronco looks good on the outside but underneath is just a different story
