Vehicle Name Burnie
Color Apple Red
Style (U13, U14, U15) U15
Brief Description (optional) This is a build from bare frame to enjoy crawling without fear of damage. The Bronco parts came from a 68 and 77 mostly. It is very capable now and I just recently added a flame wrap to make sure you know it is Burnie.
Engine & Drivetrain

351W converted to propane. Bronco C4 tranny to Dana 20 with Lokar shifter. I am running full hydraulic steering.
Homemade 4 link front and rear. No calculators, just placed the axles where I wanted them and imitated what I liked on "Hammer" buggies. Radflo coil overs on all four corners. Dana 60 up front and Sterling 10.25 in the rear. 5.38 gearing with Detroits. As 2104 I have added the Atlas 4speed. I am also now sporting an Artec truss up front.
Wheels & Tires
Wheels & Tires Images
Basic black wheels with DIY beadlocks that sport one of a kind Bronco design. The tires are 42" IROKs.
The front clip is from a burned up 1968 which is where the name "Burnie" was created. The tub and rear quarters were brought back from Texas along with the roadster inserts. The unique safari top is my son's creation. It was shortened by 11 inches and dropped almost 2 inches. This body was never even prepped before it was painted in the local trailer shop paint booth. It is all gonna get damaged anyway.
I had to fab some inner wheel wells to allow for the coil overs. Now that it is all together I realize they could have been much smaller. The passenger side of the dash was cut off because it really has no purpose and it allowed for the battery box. Since this picture I have opted to mount the propane vertically to give me more cargo space.
Other Notes Images
I have never fabbed anything like this before and had done very little welding. It turned out great, crawls great and is simply fun!
