Did a little 'tweaking', then took it out and stretched it out. I couldn't get it to really flex hard, plus I don't really want it to break yet. Also, I can't seem to get the rear to flex very well.

Problems left to work out: Steering linkage, hits on both springs at compression
Still need front shocks, and I may have to get a new front drive shaft, it is binding at droop.

:thumbsup: I like it man, very clean looking. How does it drive on the road? I love that front bumper, tucks up tight.

Really nice. Who made that hood? And what type tires and rims are those?
Man, I'm I'd love to be out there in Wy wheeling around.

Glad to get another B11 over here.

Man your Bronco is so sick! Nice job, excellent looking truck!

BII can use some work to get more articulation from the rear axle, is that the stock rear 7.5, I assume not because you have the 5 on 5.5 bolt circle up front.

Man that is a clean BII, any more details?
