    Thanks men, I have put some hours in it.

    93 was the last year for the old body style.

    it is pretty common in the Midwest USA in the summer months, antique tractoring is a popular hobby.

    I am by no means a Dodge fan but that rig is fantastic. Beautiful truck! :thumb

    the front rims are stock 3rd gen dodge painted black, the rear is stock 1st gen painted black....yes I know 17 on the front and 16 on the back ? ? I had just finished the dually conversion and didn't have 16 inch fronts yet, I do now.


    the BFG MK2's were 286-70-17 load range E, I know have 235-85-16's on the front E's of course.


    here is the truck as I bought it, 139k miles and fairly nice, just wouldn't do what I needed it to.

    What do you do when a Tornado (Moore, OK) blows your neighborhood into a pile of toothpicks?

    Go back to where your house once stood, find your Bronco blown around and parked 90° to where it was. Lock in the hubs, start the truck and drive it out! Totally amazed the soft top stayed in place. The rest of the body was great, now toast.

    You had plenty of engine to haul, just not quite enough chassis. Could have dropped that drivetrain into a 1 ton or more pretty easy :D
