CO­IN­CI­DENCES

Four Wheeler - - Inbox -

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

-> Ford 8.8 rear axle with 4.56 gears and ARB Air Locker

-> 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.
