This is my good friend brians bronco2 that we are trying to pimp out in time for koh. Last year i posted pictures of it when we did the exo cage days before koh. This year we decided to do the same thing again by rushing to get it done in time for koh. This year we are ditching his half ton hp44 and 9" axles on 35s and installing some 1 tons with hydro steer on beadlocks and 40's. .er 39s.

This poor little bronco has been beat hard trying to keep up with my buggys over the last year. It is really fitting for brian to have a bronco 2 because when we were in high school he had a full sized bronco that we beat and modified till there was nothing good on it and it was scrapped.

Parts "upgrade".

Flipped rear leaf springs to move the axle back 6"
2.0 air shocks up front to replace the old coils and broken shocks.
shooting for a 3 link up front but might keep it radius armed, either way the new links will be 2" dom with hiems on both ends.
'05 newer souper dooper dana 60 front with welded carrier and 5.38s with a full hydro double ended ram and some crap welded to the stock cover.
late style 14bolt welded with 5.38s, diff cover, pinion shovel, and disc brakes.
weld on bead locks on 17" wheels
used/bald af 39 baja stickies
SS kegger gas tank moved to the back as well as the battery moved
Gutted engine bay trying to save wieght.
Aluminum steering wheel.
new motor mouts.
new tranny x member
Probably some hacked together drive lines and brake lines the day we load it on the trailer.
Probably some paint once its loaded on the trailer to go to koh if there is time but probably not.

We have most the parts already. still need to figure out what hydro pump. We may try to adapt a tc style pump onto the worn out 2.9 it has in it.

Some souper 60 stuff

There is not a lot of room to mount link tabs on the short side of these 05 and newer 60s so it has been common practice from what i have seen in interwebz land to cut out a decent section of the casting. The castings on these are much longer then the older stuff allowing the tubes to go in further.

I didnt take good pics of the high steering arms we fabricated, but they are essentially knock offs of jesse haines's stuff.

Because setting up dana 60 gears is the devil i left a nice easter egg in there. There is also some high dollar tech pictured there, we always welds some bolts in ends there to wedge against the carrier in the unlikely event of the pin shearing.

Before Austin left for nodak last week he plumbed in and mounted the new external fuel pump and filters, hooked every thing back on the motor that he disconnected when he ripped out the inner fender wells, cut the exhaust off for what ever damn reason, and drew up and cut out some spring perches.

It has been a busy week getting things done. I finished stuffing some gears into the 14 bolts, fabricated a diff cover for it, fully cleaned and replaced all the seals, and installed the disc brakes. Friday i fabricated a roll cage for a sxs while brian and few other yahoos got the 14 bolts stuffed under the rig. Tonight i fabbed a steering wheel adapter and mounted it, they started mounting rock lights and mocking up rear shocks. One of our derby car friends didnt like how the rear corners where missing the tail lights so he heat and beat them closed for what ever reason. I cut out some parts on the plasma table and started mapping out the front suspension. I looks like will will be able to stuff a 4 link under there with some precision hackery of the front frame rails.


14 bolt nom nom. Dont mind the cocked eyed u bolt, our derby car friend installed that side lol.

8 lug conversion on the tire mount as well. Sad to see the little rocket ship go.

Money shot right there. The wheel base is stretched out to 109" with 25" of belly clearance.

I'm impressed with how much work you guys knock out, so quickly! I have a project I can haul over and drop off. ;)

Its only because we have a dead line, my single seat buggy took over 3 years, plus where not exactly trying to make any nice custom fab on this old pile, she is being built to beat.

Did some rear brake lines today, and ordered the rest of the parts we need to finish it. I ended up getting a TC style pump that we will have fabricate a mount for to fit on the powerfull 2.9 v6 in this ford. Yesterday i fabricated the lower link mounts and new 2" 1/4"wall dom lower link.

Every year we dig a shovel head sized hole as deep as we can in camp on the lake bed. Its tradition.

Saturdays progress.

I finished the 4 link. Installed some hoops and air shocks, limiting straps and hacked the frame all to hell.

Austin started the trans x member. The old one had the lower link brackets for radius arms welded to it and it was broken in half.26804708_1593406197414331_4820652315139503739_n.jpg

I mounted up the tc style steering pump on the powerful 2.9 tonight, I even got it to retain the factory belt length. I sure love my plasma table.

Cut off the old mount and tube entirely and remounted the 8 lug mount, and had to relocate the spare fuel can holder over a few inches.26991953_1593406187414332_4160853583075325561_n.jpg26804985_1593406190747665_2171501666661170476_n.jpg
