1976 Bronco Frame Off Restoration w/pics Updated 9/12 truck is finished

Hey guys Im just starting my frame off restoration of a 1976 Bronco.The truck was given to me by my dad for my 18th birthday because he bought an uncut rust free all original 1969 Bronco. I'll be posting pics up of the entire build for everyone to see. Im going to be running a 5.5" James Duff Monster Suspension Lift on 35" Mickey Thompson MTZ's and classic locks, just about everything on the truck is going to be new. I'll be posting pictures up hopefully this weekend of my progress so far. I had the frame powdercoated along with smitty bars and my Toms Bronco Baja style front and rear bumpers. Currently we are cleaning and doin prep work on the rears to paint them and get them under the frame so that we can install the suspension, 23 gal tank, SS brake lines, SS fuel lines and other stuff, ill try to post my parts list of everything ive purchased for the build as I go. Many pics to come..
Thanks Dan

Awesome! Sounds like you've got quite the rig planned. What else you got planned? Engine, paint, doors/inserts, top, etc...

I am also working on a frame off '74. Can you give me some measurements that I need to modify the rotissere I bought. I need ,

1) the measurement on the rear of the frame for the right to left side body mount.

2) the measurment for the body mount near the fire wall right to left

3) the measurment for the body mount at the front by the raditor core support right to left.

4) the measurment from the body mount at the firw wall to the bolt hole for the bumper.

Thanks fr all your help.
