HERE IS WHAT WE STARTED OFF WITH

COMPLETE FRAME OFF
 
We started by stripping the Bronco down to the frame, then having all of the parts sand blasted so that we could see exactly what we were looking at as far as rust or stress cracks. We started working on the frame first. Once we reworked the factory welds and knocked off all of the old slag, we were ready to start mocking up new parts. We cut off the stock shock mounts and welded on F-250 front shock mounts, a cross enter prizes rear shock hoop and a steering box frame reinforcement kit. We tapped the holes for the fuel, return and brake line mounting clamps and then sent it off to be powder coated White.

NOW THAT THE FRAME IS READY
We can start putting on the good stuff. We started with the steering box and suspension, so we can get some axles under it as quick as possible.

THE ELECTRICAL

We started running all of the wiring. While the body was at paint we set up the wiring harness with all of the extra stuff we were putting in the Bronco, we added EFI, A/C, power windows, heated seats, off road lights and a trans cooler, plus all of the little upgrades that makes for a lot of stuff. Because we set up the harness we just started mounting parts and plugging them in.

THE DASH LAYOUT

We started with our new dash this one only had the glove box moved over 5" and the stock speedo hole we then added two holes for the new F150 vents one hole for the upgrade A/C controls and 5 holes for the switches we needed. The dash is a very important part of your Bronco for obvious reasons. But it is more than that, you look at it the whole time you are driving. When you lay out your dash you want to make sure you can see all of the gauges a glance and get to all of the switches and vents without having to reach too far. Rob wanted a dash that didn't have a lot of clutter simple and smart. We only have 3 main switches to deal with #1 a key hole #2 a head light switch and #3 a wiper switch, then we added 2 more 1 for each seat heater and that was it. After we made sure the bezels and vents fit we had the dash powder coated black.
