hey what is the body tub like on your 2dr bronco you started out with? I don't mind rust on the wheel lips but need solid crossmembers/floors/posts. I might do it your old way and splice to a crewcab cab I have. I would be going with the 80-86 body , that's why I don't care about the wheel lips. you can email me pics, cheers James

That really looks good. When it is back together I would really like to know how you like the Cummins engine. If it was worth the headache of the swap. Great looking rig.

to me the cummins is worth every penny and drop of sweat spent installing it its one of the most reliable light duty mechanically injected diesels that make gobs of power with very little issues involved (not a fan of powerstrokes whatsoever, could be all the time spent under the hoods of trucks working on them talking tho lol)

the rears seats have been a pain to install ill get pics when i get back at it but ive had to chop them down because they sat wayy too high in the cab im 5'4" and only had about 4" above my head, but the way i lowered them kept the tilt and flip so that made things more intresting
