Some dings and dents on corners from rock crawling.

This truck was built to crawl. I would not advise anyone looking for a streetable bronco to look here. Although I have driven it to the store, 40" tires, quick ration steering, and 5.13's are a handful.

This is a work in progress as I continue to make this truck better. I have a pile of stuff waiting to be installed and I will continue to do so as time goes on. Price will change accordingly.

Not yet installed parts, in the order of precedence of installation:

8” ram for hydro assist with hoses
Bailey Built rear bumper
BC Broncos belly skid plate
Factory parking brake – will need cables and fulcrum lever
Wheelbase extension kit:
--Rear wheel well extensions
--B pillar frame tie-ins for cage
--Extended rear drive shaft
--Stinky 23 gallon tank that can be cut down (and cleaned) once rear end is stretched to replace fuel cell to regain bed space
--spare front and rear leaf spring mounts

Upgraded parts are negotiable to be added to deal. Once they get installed, the price goes up, and I am not pulling them off the truck.

$16,000 as it sits, and negotiable with the extra parts. Located in North Austin.
