Got an ‘86 Bronco 2 that I am gonna make a mud truck. Looking to run 35s on it. Will get a 2” or 3” body lift and not afraid to cut the body to make the tires fit. Have eyes on a ‘78 Fullsized Bronco to pull the Dana HP 44 front and 9” rear end, C6 tranny, NP 205 T-case and 351M motor from. Anybody done this project and have any tips, other than the perceived notion the 351m is a low compression turd? Any help is appreciated.

Might not be exactly what you're doing.... but this build thread is a good one.

Lots of inspiration to build a Bronco II...

Finally able to tear into it. Hoping to get it running with OEM motor first. Get it off the trailer and go from there.
