    I have a pretty stock X on 31's. I am about to buy a complete inspected '76-'77 Early Bronco. I'm not positive but I know the guy said "factory front disc's" and I know him pretty well so I'm confident its '76-'77..
    Anyway, I need advice about the donor axle.

    1)Is it roughly the same width as the "X-rear axle + the 5x4.5 to 5x5.5 adapter?
    2)Would it be easier/cheeper to use leafs on the 2nd Gen (grind off coil stuffs, and use spring perches?)
    3)It also has the 302 drive line, I'm thinking of using it (front axle, motor, trans, transfer case, and if needed the rear axle for width), so I have more options to modify the engine. Plus, my 5r55e is about to tank..

    I think this is a good base to start, materials/options, then start hording parts until S-Day
