Thanks! I think it will be a nice, nostalgic touch...

Wild Horses Wrap Trap brackets welded on rear axle housing...Rear axle housing is by John's Industries. Their center section is made from 1/4" steel, axle tubes are 3/8". Mosher 31 spline 4:88 Wavetrac waiting for install. Also using the Warn full float kit. I will be running NASCAR style inner seals at the carrier (along with the seals Warn provides at the outer) to hopefully stop any leaks.

That's just crazy. I might build a Bronco from a pile of parts, jump in and drive it from CO to TN and back, head to Moab to wheel it for a few days, drive it straight off the trail for a few thousand more miles before returning home, but that's where I draw the line.

'74 beater, 5.0 mustang EFI, C4, PS, front discs, twin sticks, 3.5" susp/1" body, 33's, 4.11's, ARBs, Hickey Sidewinder, cobra hydroboost

'70 cruiser, 5.8 explorer EFI, 4R70W, PS, front discs + hydro, twin sticks, 3.5" susp/1" body, 34's, 4.88's, ARB & tru-track
