    D-44 Front from a Early Bronco with a wristed radius arm
    Stock 8.8 rear, both locked with 4:88 gears
    New 36x13.50-15 IROK tires on 15x10 wheels

    It used to be a real nice clean wheeler, but years of my friends abuse, and now mine has taken its toll on the ol girl. Its going to get taken apart over the next few months and brought back to her former glory, plus some big new plans to make it even better. I'll post photos as I work on it.

    I have one also, but I don't wheel it. I picked up a clean southern body with a shot tranny. I was going to build a wheeler but its to clean so I am going to "restore" it and make it a driver.

    Axle is from a 60s bronco, the origional baby broncos. T-case is out of a explorer with a manual, its a BW1354

    Yeah its me, I saw you post around here a few times and wondered if it was the same person from TRS, but never put 2+2 together.

    And RRORC, and Pirate, and BII.org, etc, etc, etc.

    Hopefully the poor thing gets wheeled/driven more than when Ryan had it...:rolleyes:

    That won't be hard. Hell the last time he put gas in it was 11 months ago. Of coarse part of it is my fault, I should have picked it up 3 months ago but did not have the time.

    I won't be driving it for some time though, going to work on making it into what it was back in the Taxx days, before Matt rolled it.
