my build thread.......finally...Bocci?

all new project about to be undertaken. I have a vision that i cannot get out of my head. It's going to be a long and bumpy road but should be worth it in the end.

Mission: build a capable, off road, road warrior along the lines of my two Heros broncokak (Ken) and Todd Foss. You can't find two nicer guys that epitomize what the subculture of the Bronco Brotherhood is all about. They are always ready to lend a hand and give advice.

They not only use their trucks as daily drivers but drove from Maine to VA and wheeled them hard all weekend at the MEB Bronco Round Up running with Gordon Bailie and Jim Hardy all weekend.....not pink fuzzy bunny like i did!

I know what i want to do but with very limited funds this will be tedious at best....bear with me. I am also inspired by so many of the rigs and more importantly their builder owners that i have met. I know at one point everybody was starting where i am. This is MY truck. I want to do damn near everything myself so there will be plenty of questions....back to your reguarly scheduled forum....
