Dude, that is an awsome deal. I would totally buy that even though I would only have like $50 left in my bank account. You could probably buy that, take the parts you want of it and sell it for the same price because the body looks spotless on that thing.

it looks to be a good deal but i would build a tire rack out of the cage. the main hoop is a three piece unit, no A pilers holding up the halo , no cross bracing. wtf that cage is a death trap that b2 would be way safer with out that cage. i would take it for the rest but leave the cage alone.

I agree with sloue on cage as it sits but it [probably] could be fixed, definitely add a-pillars with gussets, and diagonals, think; triangles are strong, squares are not, tension is better than compression [think dry spaghetti noodle].

Personally I would swap the engine with a 4.0 and daily drive the thing. Or I would do something a little different and swap in a 4-cylinder cummins or a maybe a V8.

I'm thinking like West and RDII, I would d.d. it with a re-ring[cheap and quick] or swap in a 4.0 or v-8. Definitely worth the price.

thanks for your opinions guys. the thing is i already have a DD and i have 3 SUVs BroncoII, Explorer, and Wrangler. i really don't need another BII and my chop top is cool and all but it's definatly seen better days. the thing has cracks all over it. i just don't know how much longer it's gonna last.

wish I had seen that bronco II on ksl first. ??? oh well im finally getting something this weekend that I found on ksl but I cant tell you guys what it is because its not a bronco II or ranger.

That bronco looks great and although the one your driving now does too I would totally swap the motor and drive the orange one.
