This is the preamble to Daisy's recent upload. My '79 Bronco rebuilt from the ground up. Blood, sweat, and tears went into this rig. After flippin it hard last year it took alot! This truck will not see pavement except to test and load - she's made for the mud!! Front tires (44's) don't like to stay on the ground, she wants to fly - and she will! More to come - soon... Race season is here, time to kick butt!
79 Monster Bronco hittin a badass mud hole - "Gonna be a long day!"
Labor Day weekend at Moses Lake Mudflats - not enough said? This is what we
call "Stuck"! But it gets much worse before it gets better.... Check out
the sequel, "Gonna be a long night!" My thanks goes out to everyone who did
the diggin, to those who helped pullin (and got broke tryin), to the
tractor driver who made an attempt, and to my Brother who broke in his
brand new winch to save my ass! ...etc... This wasn't the worst pull ever
but a tough one none-the-less!
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.
As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't
"do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to
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.
'79 Bronco "Rumblebee" gets badass air in tuff trucks!
This is from the June 7th, 2008 competition at the Grant County Fair in
Moses Lake. We were the 1st competitor in the 1st round and set the bar
pretty high. We got the best air and went in to the second round with teh
feeling we only had ourselves to beat..... Little did we know what would
happen in round 2....
79 Bronco hittin a badass mud hole - "This is gonna be a long night!"
Moses Lake Mudflats. This is part 2... The front end went down like the
Titanic! This is what we call "Hank Stuck"!! It took 11 hours of diggin,
pullin, diggin, and yes, more pullin. The Bronco 4wd let go during one
pull. 3 other trucks were damaged in this pull (sorry peoples...) and
finally was winched out late in to monday night. As was said in part one,
again, thanks to everyone who busted ass to help get this truck out. Again,
thanks Baby Brother!
79 Bronco w/ a 460 and magnaflow mufflers
A good clip, sound wise, to show how she sounds with J's custom Exhaust set up. (she now has new tires and a tru
trac in the rear so she doesn't have the trouble she had at the end of the
Badass '79 Bronco Totally demolished in crash - Near Fatal!
Sorry about the video quality. Some of you have seen the audience view of
this crash and that was intense enough. This is the view from pit-side with
the original sounds of background panic at the scene as our family, friends
and strangers wonder the latest on the condition of my wife. This wreck was
an incredible reminder of how important life is and just how quickly it can
change. We both got lucky that God was watching...
