1979 BRONCO RANGER XLT REBUILD
Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS.
2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this
vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at
the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off.
I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally
World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but
hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools.

say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as
you may be able to see.
I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the
I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the
Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to
critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it"
Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.

Betsy the bronco gets a new body
We swap the old rolled body for a new bronco body in 20 hrs. : )
The old body had been rolled and then hit by an RV and it was at the point
where you could hear seams popping.
Bronco and Ranger Mudding up Blue Ridge
Me and my supervisor trying to do a hill climb. I'm in the bronco, my
supervisor in the ranger. The hill is quite a bit steeper than in the video
and very slippery.
