long bed bronco?

Has anyone ever made a long bed bronco? Kinda like a scrambler? As a half cab only longer, it would be cool to be able to but a four wheel pop up on one. if anyone has pics of something like this, please e-mail them to me ryanharrisalaska@yahoo.com Thanks---Ryan

Haha, yeah yeah, but can you drive it with all those sticks on the floor....if I remember right you are an auto/ac/luxury liner kinda guy

It does look pretty slick with that half cab top on it doesnt it? Priority 1 was to put a cage in, well, took 1 wheeling trip without it but no family. Maybe I'll make a top that will work with my cage since I cant seem to give them away.

The half cab top was so rusty and squeaky we took it off and left it along the trail, coming back for it at the end of the day...it was scaring the crap out of Shawn

I have more but those are some from that point in its existence, it has undergone the knife a few times.

The bed is stretched 12" body and frame, I didnt do it but it doesnt look very hard after replacing a ton of sheetmetal on my wife's. You can always use the f100 panels to rebuild the rear with as they are the same, just longer. If you click in my signature you can see the build from beginning to now. I would love to be able to throw a camper in the back as I have 3 boys and would love to get back in the woods and camp in the camper at night.

Not sure if you know but there are Broncos out there with pop up tops on them, here is a pic of one I was trying to buy. They are small but cool.

I also attached a photoshop of a project I would like to do sometime soon.

Has anyone tried to just build one of the campers? I know everyone is looking for them used, but how difficult could it be to build one for the EB? Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult, I mean all the angles are square, unlike and FSB. Just curious.
