It started out as an '89 Bronco II. Was completly stock with a broken front D28 when I got it. I did wheel an XJ cherokee for a few years and after finding cracks in the unibody I wanted a frame. After some serious measuring I went with this B2. Now I know it was a good choice. Here is the build from start to where it is now. Enjoy.

Now time for the axles. It had a 60 rear and 44 front to begin with. 5:38's and spool rear and detroit front. I pushed the front up 7 inches and the rear went back 11. That made the WB then 111.

I knew I wanted rear links. This made locating the axle way easy, controlled axle wrap better, and the ride is smooth. Here is the rear setup.

After the axles were in it was time to makes sure the 40's cleared and measure fore brake lines and shocks.

After Moab the top came off.

Cage started

After cutting my hand wide open on the top of the rear tub, and knowing my kids will climb over to get in, the whole rear came off.

After sweating bullets with the 44 front (it did have superiors and CTM's) the time had come to build my 60 I have had for a few years waiting. It got built using 5:38's, detroit, Spicer x joints on stock shafts for now, hi steer, superwich hubs, and all new bearings, brakes, seals.......It also got pushed foward 2 inches to better the approach angle and to use the winch as a suck down. WB is now 113

After a wile on the front radius setup with the new 60 I wasn't linking how it worked. So a 4 link went in the front too. Although it doesn't flex more, it just doesn't have the bind.
