i think  its a good base to start with you can save it!

Im saving it and keeping it for a long long time. Most likely until I wanna give this one to the Wife and start over from scratch with a complete inside tube body toyota or Bronco II. Yeah yeah talk :pokinit: I loooove Fords and wanna crawl a Bronco II. Been a life goal for me...

Yeah I can see why in the pictures, like the bumper cut in half and the transfer case mount don't forget about those beautiful welds holding on your shackles either :rofl: You'll get er' fixed up and going. It is a pretty nice project, there is a lot there to work with. Keep it up :thumbs:



Yeah I have a lot of work. The shackle mounts are actually fine. Whoever welded the Shackle mounts and leaf spring mounts did a good job because there is no issues anywhere plus there is solid beads. Its the old hitch mount and the original old school leaf spring mount ( not in use anymore ). Also my front shock mounts where welded good, I was worried for a little while.

Hey do you guys think I should cut and swap over to shock hoops or stick with what i have? Ive got the old school version on shock mounts. I believe they sold them for fords back in the day and everyone used em for crawler projects... Not sure if I should remove or say whatever.
