Figured i'd start a build up thread for my Dana 60 front and Dana 60 rear V8 bronco 2. Got the Dana 60 rear so far just waiting to pick up a front Ford Dana 60. Going with 4 link front and rear once I get the money for that, gonna put it on leaf springs until then. Not sure if I wanna go with coil springs or air shocks just yet. Going to put an exo cage around it as well and possibly turn it into a truggy. Engine is a roller 302 bored .020 over with a small cam backed by a T5 trans, going to also put a aluminum intake on it with a 4 barrell carb and get rid of the 2 barrell that is on it now. Got away from the Zuki stuff and moved back to the almighty Ford blue engines.

Man I had a Bronco 2 as my first rig. It was bone stock with a set of 31" buckshots crammed under it. You had to physically hold it in 4lo the whole time. Haha I never did break anything though. Tough little truck.

You!  flipgotcha

Naw, there's a #22 on the hatch window, looks like Herman Goddard. He's been driving dirt late models around here since the 60's.

Nice build though!  :dblthumb:
