here are the mods.. still needs the finishing touches

1977 bronco front axle:
4.88 gears
Yukon zip locker (air)
warn premium hubs
custom long are with currie enterprises johnny joints

rear axle:
out of a 1998 explorer (disc brake)
4.88 gears
arb air locker
custom forged axles made by Dutchman axles

shocks 14" bilstein 5125 front
12" bilstein 5125 back
front shock towers are early f150
arb compressor


fab work:
custom front spring perches
5/16 bellypan kinda overkill but badass

for the rear suspension I made my own leafs out of ranger/ explorer packs
I dropped down the front brackets 2.5"

Looks good, you might want to add some limit straps, your coils are coming out of the buckets at the frame. Any future mods planned?

Those coil buckets are designed to do that. That's why there is the tubing in the middle

Nice truck. Did you make that front diff cover? How does she handle on the road now? without a sway bar?

yeah I made the diff cover myself. it handles ok on the road without the sway bar. I can do without it for now but I would like to have one in the future. cant go around corners too fast but that's to be expected
