    • Make:Ford
    • Model:Bronco

    Engine : 400, 6.6L w/28K original miles. Head gasket bad. Instead of risking a lot of labor in case anything else was bad as well I had the engine rebuilt by Carolina Engines (to keep originality) with their high torque option. 10 percent more HP and enough t

    Drivetrain : no info

    Transmission : no info

    VIN : v155lfb7881

    Rhino Lined entire interior. Tuffy Stereo console. High end sound system. Dual Flowmaster 44 series. Rear roll bar.

    Future Plans: 4 inch suspension lift w/ 35 inch mud terrains. Re-paint, re-upholster seats, re-trim, and re-weather strip. Extend drive shaft, gears.

    By the time the truck is finished (a few years down the road) I plan for it to look as good as it did the day it drove off of the lot.

    Very clean inside & out. Thanks for posting this beautiful machine. Hope to get the one I'm buying to look as good as yours.

    @Laurie, the Bronco is not for sale. It has 28K original miles. I bought this truck for nostalgia as a 79' Bronco was my first vehicle in high school and I had to sell it when I went to college. @Michael, Thanks for the great comments. I hope your own perfect Bronco too. They are getting harder and harder to find in better condition but they are still out there. Keep looking!!

    I'd keep it the way it is. There is not many stock height Broncos around anymore. (At least in Spokane) and I think it's to nice to become "Another Mud Truck" if you know what I'm getting at.

    Gunnar, I may get some heat for this but regardless of what I do to the Bronco, it will all be for show. I'm not putting this one in the mud like I did my last one. I want to have it for the rest of my life, and hopefully be able to pass it down. I also think that I am going to go with a 4" lift and 35" tires as I feel like that ratio makes the truck look proportional or that the tires match the size of the big body. Thanks for the input.

    Lookin good! How far up did you go with the lining? Did you have to do a lot of prep work?

    Thanks Robert. The entire interior is rhino lined but I went all the way up the sides in the back of the bed but did not do where the top comes down and meets the body. I will post pics with the top off tomorrow. This is the second Bronco that I have lined. The prep work is not hard. I had to take out all of the seats and rip out the carpet. To put it in perspective, I am not the least bit mechanically inclined and it was easy for me. You don't have to but they will charge $75/hour labor to do it. I think it took me about 2-3 hours so I saved a good bit. Total cost was about $600. My last Bronco was lined about 15 years ago and it was $500 so the price hasn't increased much. They also use a new application procedure that results in a smaller more uniform lining which I think looks much better. It also grips better so things are less likely to slide.
