Well - here's the story...

We were helping one of our club members build up his little Bronco II for a reliable wheelin' rig - nothing outrageous, just something to run trails with and take the family.

He wanted to upgrade the running gear on his Bronco II, so off to Craigslist we went and found this little parts gem (prior tuff truck competitor) for next to nothing...

It had the running gear and a good strong motor that we were looking for so we grabbed it up quick and towed it home...



After sizing up the two rigs - we decided it would be better/easier to use the one he already had for parts and go ahead and upgrade the Craigslist find instead.

So we're running through everything to make sure it's 100%. It was a little unwieldly flat towing back from Portland, so we broke down the front suspension to take a look.

The pictures below are what the previous owners had used for the 2" spacers with the coils to get the larger tires to fit under. Not an entirely ridiculous idea except that the spacers are made out of - get this -- PVC pipe rings filled with expanding foam - hence the death wobble that just about took my Explorer over the side of the I-205 bridge...



I've seen some crazy stuff in my wheelin' days - but this takes the cake.

Well I guess better late than never. Sorry I missed the chat tonight guys. Looks like you had some fun. What should we talk about next week? By the way Crystal, I loved the lion story. And a big thank you to you, and Pistons Wild, for all you hard work down there. You guys give 110%, it is appreciated.
