    Last year we bought my son a 93 Ford Bronco and he decided he couldn't afford the gas since we stopped paying for it LoL. That was kind of the plan. He got him self a nice little car and I took back the old Bronco for me. I've been wanting to do this project for about 20 years now.

    We are doing this in 3 stages ( I hope)
    Stage 1 Suspension and cage work. 21" in the front and 23 in the rear keeping the 4 wheel drive
    Stage 2 new motor and trans, I will need 4-600 hp for this to be fun.
    Stage 3 full interior with new dash including all the fun stuff like GPS

    It will have heating, air conditioning and a windshield. All the requirements the wife made when we decided to do this

    I will post progress pics as we go

    The best part is I will have about the same amount of cash in this that people are dropping on there side by sides and it will be street legal

    Here is what it will look like when done. Those are 37" project tires

    Nice to see some of the cool 70's / 80 4x4's being built. I had a 73 Blazer when I was 19 - 21 YO with full removable top, I miss the hell out of it. Bronco's were the same ilk and you just don't see them on the road anymore. Fun rigs for younger people and or older people that had a lot of fun with them when young. Kinda like muscle cars for baby boomers. We didn't have a ton of options for fast shit when we were shopping for our first cars. Most 40 - 50 YO's today had some sort of cheap 4x4 between 15 and 24.

    I think this might be better than doing the side by side thing... My neighbors in Havasu just went from side by sides to an off road rig and his wife is much happier not being covered in dirt.

    I'm in for progress. That "after" bronco looks killer

    I kinda agree although it probably depends more on your mood. I'm perfectly content to be in the jeep at the back with a beer between my legs. [emoji39]

    X2. Wife approved a Jeep over a sxs for that reason. She said less dirt in her face

    My Grandma lived in New Mexico by Taos when we were kids. She always had a Bronco and most of the roads we drove when we visited her were dirt. To me at that age life didn't get much better, dirt roads, shooting rifles with my uncles, and going to see Red Dawn in the Taos movie theatre when it came out. Always wanted a Bronco ever since.
