My new project: Trail beater

Well this deal literally just fell into my lap. I've wanted a Bronco II for a LONG time. Just so happens I went to my fiancee's parents in TN and her brother has one sitting in the garage. Doesn't run at the time. So I get to talking to him and ask him if he wants to sell it. He said sure because all he was gonna do was trash it(got it for free) So I asked him how much and he said 50 bucks! I was like hell yeah. So I asked him if I gave him 100 if he would tow it down for me and he agreed. So we were messing around with it and and decided to chop the roof off and spray paint the whole think flat black(paint was ruff) Then after all that and being bored we both said **** it and tried to get it running. We have narrowed it down and figured it out to be the fuel pump. So he will be replacing it with one he has that he is not using. We also were able to make sure everything works and it does besides the fuel pump and a few small things.

Anyway here are the stats of it that I know:

2.9L V6
5spd
manual floor shifter for 4wd

Not sure of the gear ratio's however. Anyway I got a pic of it and the motor with my camera phone while I was up there. It is staying in TN for now. I am also in the process if looking into a 5.0 swap. He know's someone with a 302 and is going to ask how much he wants for it. Anyway here's the pics. I warn you it's not much to look at and needs some work, however it is a trial rig and will never be driven on the street when i'm done modifying it.

Not a whole lot now. Most my money will goto the bronco. I do want to atleast get rid of the stock wheels. Need a hitch and trailer to tow it around. Other then that maybe a soft tonnue cover. My tires are still go so i'll probably just get a decent looking set of 16's to replace the stockers.
