Too many coincidences! I just received my December 2017 issue of Four Wheeler magazine. I did a double take in the Contents section. The picture for your “T-case Upgrades” article featured a Bronco similar to mine, on the same spot as one of my favorite pictures of my Bronco. Mine was taken on my 40th birthday, Labor Day weekend 2017, on the V-notch on Poison Spider Mesa trail in Moab, Utah. Furthermore, that is the same spot I met a young man with another fullsize Bronco, and he has the same birthday as me (September 2)!
I’ve subscribed for more than a decade and would love to get my Bronco in your magazine. ’94 Bronco specs
-> 5.8L engine (stock) with rebuilt E4OD and stock Borgwarner 1356 T-case
-> Solo Motorsports cut and turned TTB Dana 44 front axle with 4.56 gears and a Detroit Truetrac limited-slip differential
-> Ford 8.8 rear axle with 4.56 gears and ARB Air Locker
-> 35-inch BFG M-TS on 15-inch steel wheels
-> 4-inch lift front coil springs
-> Deaver rear leaf springs and Solo Motorsports shackles
-> Bilstein 5100 series shocks
-> 13 inches travel up front, 14 inches travel rear
-> Onboard air via ARB compressor
-> 2-inch receiver in the rear
-> Garage-built 2-inch receiver in the front (I have receiver mount winch set up for it) -> LEDS in the stock front bumper holes
-> Rear LED lighting
-> “La Cucaracha” horn (best modification!)
I bought the Bronco on the cheap and it took me about a year to clean it up, fix it up, and set it up. The Bronco has proved to be an awesome truck for our family off-road adventures (wife and two sons, 5 and 7 years old). We’ve wheeled open desert, mountain rocks, sand dunes, snow, and Moab slickrock. The Bronco is built to go fast in the rough Nevada desert, but she did awesome crawling on Poison Spider and Hell’s Revenge in Moab.
Thanks and keep up the good work.
