Here is what I think about Chevy, Dodge and Ford Trucks



There all Good Trucks I have made my living working on them, and they have paid the bills

Ya, that figures. ProComp springs are known for being flex. The Deavers will be a huge improvement.

About 45 miles south of San Antonio. Little town called Moore, in Frio County. You?

Im in Fort Worth. I knew i recognized the dirt. But i'v never seen rocks like that around here, made me think it was further south. You know of many good places to 4x4 down there? There is nothing around here.

The rocks are at K2 (Katemcy Rocks ... Rock Crawling Texas Style) near Fredericksburg. There are quite a few parks poppin' up around the state. You might wanna check out Texas4x4.org, or even SAOffroad.com. SAO is a San Antonio 4x4 forum, but if you don't mind drivin', there is a wheelin' trip once a month around here.

I'll look into it. We had a couple public land places we could go, but they weren't anything special, then they all got closed down.

I'd be interested in a wheeling trip every once and a while. The most my 4x4 gets used is for when it get muddy at work or at the ranch. I want to go have some fun.

What the hell does it matter what truck tows another truck? What's everyone's problem with the chevy vs ford vs dodge crap. That old chevy pickup is a great running truck, and I'd drive it across the country in a heartbeat. It starts everyday, gets great gas mileage, tows like a dream, and is quiet as a lot of new trucks. I'd pick that truck over a 351w F-250 any day of the week.

lovin the Progress man keep it up, my jaw dropped when i saw the outcome. Lovin the chevy too, i got one just like it same color and everything but its a 2wd 3/4 ton "bonanza"

And as for this picture, i love the chevy it looks like a tank but for some reason the ford just looks 100 times more of a beast on the chevy

What springs are you running in the front?
Eh, there is alot of REAR flex, but not much tire stuffing going on up front. It needs softer coils.


Nice truck tho!!!

I guess I could actually update this thread. The tires are sold. The beadlocks are for sale. I'm halfway through the SAS. I bought a ton of parts for it, although most are still sitting in the box.

The rear axle is almost ready to bolt in. Its a 1991 sterling 10.25. disc brake swap, 5.13s, and a detroit. That axle is almost ready to go, it just needs the gears and locker set up. I just haven't gotten to it yet. Also, waiting on my u-bolts to get in, which should be here tomorrow.

The front is a 1989 kingpin d60. NWF steering arm, crossover made of DOM with chevy 1 ton TREs, custom built 3 link, with 2.25x0.375 DOM links with 1.25x1 ruffstuff heim joints, mostly Barnes4wd brackets, etc, etc, etc. Detroit locker and 5.13s also waiting to be installed.

Also have some suspension seats and 5 point harnesses that will be going in, once I cage the truck.

Here is a link to my thread on FSB that actually gets updated, for anyone that wants to actually follow my updates. I really don't plan on posting up much over here.

FullSizeBronco.com - 78 - 96 Ford Bronco offroad club, forums, tech, installs

And a few pics, just so y'all know what's going on, if you even care...

It's a Ford Truck Enthusiasts site...what do you expect? I did notice that old Chebby was poop brown.

The Ford is top shelf and I wish I have the ability to do something like that. Very nice!
