I lost most of my pics on my old phone, but I have a 90 Bronco. 351w, 35 spline 9" with Detroit, long arm ttb lift ( for now, I have a solid 44 and an arb in a box that needs to go in) and a few other things. It failed smog a while ago and I didn't have the money or to fix so she's been sitting for a couple years. Planning on getting her going again and getting rid of the teenager mods from when I first built it, turning it into a nicer daily driver and dumping my Cherokee I've been driving. I'll start a build thread when I dig it out again, but expect slow progress between work, family farm and a two year old "helping".:laughing:

Edit, forgot the drivetrain. Swapped in a np435 with a 203/205 doubler.

My 96 XLT Sport.
408w, built E4OD. Still trying to decide between cut and turn TTB, or SAS.

Go fast rigs make pretty capable all around wheelers. If you aren’t strictly playing in the rocks, and don’t see going over a 37” tire, I’d lean towards cut and turned beams and a 9” rear

Going way back here. Well before the rust really set in. That is my 88. It’s a 302 and an aod. It went through a couple rear ends, and I beat the hell out of the underside of, but it took surprisingly little body damage being wheeled. Between rust, and a pretty severe knock from the lower end, it’s been sitting for the past 7ish years, waiting for me to find the time and the funds to do something with it. Plan is fix the body rust, rebuild the engine and trans, and stuff super duty running gear under it and a set of 40s

So what all is done to your TTB? Looks like steering has been upgraded to a swing set?

It also has that kind of truss thingy going on, and I spy some plating out towards the ends of the beams. Plus I believe that’s an rcv shaft hiding out by the knuckle there

It's a 1996 Eddie Bauer with a 5.8, E4OD, 1356 T-case, Currie 9" w/5:43's, Detroit Locker, Strange 35 spline axles, custom Trans. mount/cage, custom radius arm brackets, 30 spline manual hubs, Desolate Cut-N-Turn TTB housings w/Uni-Balls , 5:38's, Tru-Trac, RCV axles, Super Runner steering w/ Saginaw pump, 44" Mudders, custom 15"x15" Weld Racing wheels

Wheelin66bronco, the only reason I ending ub building the front was that I used to break axles plowing w/ the 37's, then, I needed a cur-n-turn after I lifted it again to clear the 44"s.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, right back at ya CDA 455 II

Always fixing/replacing. Soon to be FI. It was my hero as a kid. I'd push everything else off a cliff before I sell it

I never properly introduced myself to this thread.
Back in 2020 right after I graduated college, I sought out and bought a one owner 1985 Bronco with 85k original miles, a 300/np435, and a ton of salt rust in the fenders.

I immediately set about cutting all the shit out off the body and bought a set of used 35s for $300 on clist.

Then I set about wheeling it/beating the piss out of it for a few months, being constantly annoyed by it making like 40hp and getting 10mpg.

I have since fixed the power issue by swapping in a different 300 we had laying around, and while that made it actually worthwhile to drive and made it get upwards of 15mpg even with the 35s on it, it also revealed that something is very not ok about the cooling system, and as such because of other irons in the fire it's sat for the last few years. Hoping I can get some other stuff wrapped up and get to this by this summer.
