They ride just fine. They sound like F'in swampers. haha

You get used to it though. I LOVE them. I know they are durable and I don't stress about flats. I know they can get flats but it's alot harder to get them.

ZERO lift.
I put a leveling coil (rough country lifts front 1.5") to make it sit better but nothing. Even the 35's fit fine stock (except for the bumper issue and maybe fenders. haha).

So tonight I pulled the stock front bumper and put the tube front bumper against the truck to see how it looks. I like it. I need to find a good deal on getting it mounted and then add a lower portion and skid plate. After that install glass fenders.

Well, with four days off, I decided I would spend a day messing with the glass fenders. Ended up taking two and I am not finished. Like I said, I am anal and I have tried to take my time doing this because I don't want to stress the glass or have shitty fitment like glass seems to have. Give me your opinions.

The brackets are NOT the autofab ones. They were custom made by a guy in San Diego (freestyle rider Jeremy Lusks dad). I think he had a custon core support because I have spent a ton of time getting this thing to fit my truck but I think they look good and fit well. This wqas end of day one. Took forever trying to figure out how to get fenders off.

I took the opportunity to straighten out the front end on my bronco while doing this. The previous owner said he hit a deer. The original fender was still on it but the bracing underneath by the front body mount was tweaked. I always had gap issues for the fender to hood (not equal on both sides and tweaked passenger side). Here's some from todays progress.

well, with the brackets and everything (me being picky) it has taken me 2 days, well a day and a half, but I have never pulled fenders on a Bronco or anything before so a bit is learning curve.

Thanks for the kind words. Now I need bumper, lights, paint then go fast fun stuff. I am building it this way due to budget not because I want looks over speed. Trust me guys. :D

Well, glass is on. Hope to get front bumper finished and on in the next couple weeks. Picked these up last night. Two spot and two flood covers included. Gonna buy a couple amber's too.

I was thinking about having a couple pins made on the bumper and using the bar that came with them to make them removable to aid against theft and damage. Opinions?

we just did that on my bumper because some jerks took my 3 kragen HIDS. Mine were cheap compared to what you have though. Im going to have a bolt that runs through lust like yours but have the nut be a saftey lug nut. i think hella sells it just for lights also
