1975 Bronco crawler

picked up a new crawler project recently, and I've been tinkering with it over the xmas break. Its got a mild 351w with a decent cam on propane, a 3spd and d20, d44 and 9 inch with 5.38s, 38.5 SX's, full hydro and a full family cage. the number one thing on my list is a cooler and reservoir for the hydro system, the orbital is right under the steering wheel and that thing gets hot in a hurry lol. the steering is pretty funky but im not really sure what im going to do to remedy it. My long term goal is 1 tons and linked front and rear, but i plan on wheeling it in the meantime until i have all the parts ready to slap underneath. Anyhow, heres some pics.

thanks RR. do yall think itd be worth it at all to weld a double sheer arm to the top of the knuckle and provide a little more strength for the steering? obviously it wouldn't be a long term fix but im just trying to think of cheap ways to make this junk survive while i get the 1 tons and stuff together. the rear has like 5 inch blocks under the springs and it is S T I F F. lol.



check out the traction bars and mount lol

That's why some folks shouldn't be allowed to build stuff. I'll end up stuck behind it on a trail. Lol

Nice to see a EB out there wheeling...i felt like the only one years. Those knuckles are weak. But your running 38.5s on a D44 sooooooo...
