Look what followed me home!
Here she is, an all her glory!
Went to go look at a truck up in the Poconos yesterday, and while that one was a bust, this was in his yard, and apparently also for sale. It is a '90 with 29k original miles! The rear fenders have a bit of cancer along with the tailgate, but the rest of the body is 100%. Definitely very clean for a truck that originally came from nj.
Fell into the hands of the current (now previous) owner because the motor blew. Currently has no engine/trans/tcase in it, along with a new body lift, and a shackle flip in the rear.
So, what to do with it????? Well............
...my bronco is gonna be a bronco again! The p/u cab on my frame is twisted pretty badly and the whole front clip is thrashed from years of not-so-gentle wheelin. So ive decided to go back to my roots, and put another bronco body on my frame! Its gonna take a little bit of work (I have to remove my custom cab x-member and reinstall the factory brackets on the frame), and since its a 90 the dash harness wont work with my truck so ill have to swap the harness. And of course slice the fenders wide open. Im sure theres a few other things that wont work as well (dont think the exhaust will). But im hoping to start tearing into the donor this summer, and then start tearing into mine this fall. After 16 years I feel its time to build some new bumpers for it, roll cage, etc, so I don't expect it to go super fast, but it should be awesome when its done.
So yeah, flame on!
