Thread: Took a break from the Mustang to work on my 77 Bronco

  1. #1

    Took a break from the Mustang to work on my 77 Bronco

    Doing a full rebuild of it. It already has a Fiberglas body but needs completely gone over. Engine and tranny are leaking pretty bad. It has sat for over 15 years. Got the lift on and tires mounted yesterday. Tried one for fitment last night. SOiUOxd.jpgNeed to get the cage in and attached to the frame. Body work etc... gV4rhlW.jpg

    Yes. I still have in mind to get the rear disk brakes from you for this if they are still available and the bearing housing on the rear axel is the same.

    Nice! We have a shortage of early Broncos around here. Will be nice to see one running around.

    Well did a bit more over the weekend. I am adding a small lift to help out for the larger tires. Pulled the old springs and the front axle is on the ground right now. Amazing working on the old iron vs the new. Right before I did this I changed rear shocks on my 2015 Focus What a PIA getting to the top stud and then getting the nut off the top stud. This Bronco was a breeze compared to that and I pulled the whole axle!WP_20180917_14_40_50_Pro.jpg

    Also finished the rear tire carrier & the light bar
