Ford Bronco Aonarch’s 2023 Bronco Build 1000003241


Cardboard for a template, plus some off the shelf Birch plywood from Home Depot.

I'd ordered some Marine grade carpet and 3M headliner spray.

Does anyone else have a better idea to glue the carpet, or am I on the right path?

I seem to recall that you have the rear OEM sway bar, the front antirock sway bar, rear track bar relocation, 6100 bilsteins (ford performance variant), and 33s. I was wondering if you had any additional thoughts on the suspension handling after some more time driving around?

I am thinking of adding the antirock in the front (or the sway bar link dampers) and sway bar to the rear. Trying to decide. Like you I don’t have a front locker. I also have 6100s and am keeping tires <35s for now.

I like your thread and the fact you don’t feel the need to blindly throw 37s on.

I love the way it drives and handles. Under full ABS braking it can still nose dive a bit, but it is way better than stock.

I don't notice on road that I have the Anti Rock. It still handles well.

The rear sway bar plus the trac bar geometry bracket completed solved my rear end woes. Before I had an uncertain feeling and rear bump steer. Now it feels completely solid.

The only thing potentially on my future list is grabbing the heaviest weight OEM Sasquatch front springs to handle a winch.

Not sure yet because I want a 2025 Ranger Raptor next year and I'd probably sell/ trade the Bronco.

Looks like you already finished it up but in the event that you are worried-that spray glue is the route I’d go. Very very effective and easily applied evenly without excess.

Great work!

Weekend camping trip in the corner of Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.
Following your thread here. Hope we get a chance to hit some trails this season.

Love the build!

4WP Transmission skid. For $150 it seems like a great deal. Hopefully it fits well.

Installed the 4WP skid today. It is pretty beefy, but obviously heavy.
