In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Just the right size to touch the ground.

In a manner of speaking. I told him if he ever wanted to sell it, to let me know. Unfortunately, I had already talked it up about how valuable it would be to the right person, so I didn't think it would be the right time to haggle about a price. He did say he paid $5k for it. He's a USAF F-15 pilot, but about as down to earth as any 30 something guy I've met that flew. In my experience, and understandably, fighter pilots are usually kinda full of themselves and a bit "holier than thou". To fly fighter jets, you have to have a lot of self confidence, so I get it. This guy wasn't like that at all though. He likes to do blacksmithing in his spare time. I ramble...

I love that look. The body creases remind me of my dad's '66 F100. Makes me wish that they'd added those creases to the new Bronco. The body shape, and grille are the same, why not add the creases?
New ones do have that upper body line.

They don't have that awkward business around the rear wheel. As a new Bronco buyer I am glad for that.

But since the rear fenders easily come off it would probably be easy to make rear fenders with the built in skirt.

My credo
built, not bought
my guess is that was about 10 thousand pounds being pulled by a 3 thousand pound ranger. obviously the chains used if any werent up to the task. Should of put the ranger on the trailer & pulled it with the allis!
