Default 86 Bronco 2 build

so i know this isnt a ranger but this is by far the most active and helpful forum ive been on so im posting this here...if you dont like it press that back button. bought it for $1700 and drove it home 30+ miles with an insanely loose drag link. shortly after getting home fixed the drag link. since ive bought it ive picked up two ammo containers for the back, painted my gauge cluster trim and grille and i ordered new rims.







----------

and tinted all front marker lights!
