I know how that goes & it sucks to have to make grown up decisions sometimes. The time off will give you a little free time to think about what you really want/need in the next one & to plan well.


And Juan - congrats on the purchase. From someone who's been to mex in this thing with Andy a few times - it's a good rig. Plus Andy has a bit of a stash of parts for the thing already accumulated. Not sure if you're getting those too, but I'm sure you've probably discussed what he's got for it.

I've got a little one (girl) on the way. I figure, get bills out of way, let kid build up neck strength and be ready to build something and get out as soon as it can go out safely. :)

I already have a idea what I want but things could change in next 6-8 months while taking care of business.

1st off - congrats.

Next - 6-8 months, I wish I could turn around that fast. Hopefully you get to.

I know you know this already but little ones take a lot of time. And money!

Continuing with the slow build theme. I am trying to do justice to the build Andy already started.

So far:
Deavers and southwest shackle mounted
Solo engine cage and radius arms
Fox 12" 2.5 coilover and 2.0 bumpstops
Bypass mounts will be on it just no shock for now
Fitting the center console(just sitting in pic)
New Method wheels and Bfg all terrains 35x15

The Solo stuff is great. So easy to install and looks great and cost friendly.

I posted them from my phone so that is probably why.

I plan on painting the center console to better match the dash also. Glad to hear the paint holds up. Just need to figure out how to mount it.

Haha, I was kidding about the blood red. But I do like the console a lot.

I just mounted up some heather gray Beard buckets in mine. Don't match the Ford red at ALLL. hah

Any more updates John?

As for a build name.... What you thinking? " A real build of a 1995 Bronco" ?? Haha

It's only fair you rename it and get credit for the awesome improvements you're doing.

I finally got it back on all fours but needs an alignment and lowered about a foot, looks like Grave Digger. Should be bringing it home this next week.

As for the name, I am not too worried about it. This thread is fine and people can see where its come from and the process it went through. Not much will happen for awhile once it comes home.
