Some pictures from an offroad Bronco meet at Ol' Florida. Had a really great time and met Pickens Party of 5! We really showed Ol' Florida what Broncos can do!

From a local car meet. Area 51 was looking so good in the sunset, I had to grab a picture.

Added some visual upgrades and the BOV spacer.

exactly what I have ordered for 2022 except the MIC. I'm afraid the novelty of the bov would wear super fast.

Excited to see where your build goes! I also see you have the infamous trailer tow with LUX, 2.7, and a 4dr!! I have FE 4dr with no trailer tow :confused:. I'm pretty sure your build is the closest match. Be curious on what wiring it has under it.

Quick update to the Thread.

At the local car show. I am waiting for someone to make some door storage hangers for the garage. I have nowhere to put the rear doors. Might just have to invest in the storage bags.

Playing around at Ol' Florida on a work day clearing/running the trails for the event on 1/28

Got Pod Lights installed thanks to PickensPartyof5! Awesome family and they will be posting a video on their YouTube channel about the install with the Aux Upfitter switches so make sure to check it out and subscribe!

The Pod Lights make a huge difference and should come in handy for the night trail rides I will be going on at the Ol' Florida Event.

Been a while since I updated this, but I have since added Flowmaster Outlaw exhaust and some limb risers. I am in the middle of a move, so the accessories have been on the back burner. Hasn't stopped me from going out on adventures!

Some fun at Citrus WMA

Went a little too deep. Water got into the intake and stalled the motor. Some broncos went in no problem and then a taco got stuck which I guess dug it up for me...My next upgrade is a snorkel! Once pulled out and the airbox cleared, it started up no problem.

Lastly, limb risers which are a must in Florida!

Also had fun towing the RV to an off-road event for the weekend. Towed with no problems the Coleman Lantern LT 17B.

Upgraded the air filter to a K&N washable filter. Same with the Cabin Air filter

I keep forgetting to update this haha.

Latest mods have been:

Lastly, a snorkel by Airaid. I am not too happy that the company is fine with leaving the stock intake inlet but claiming the snorkel adds protection to the air box. I will modify the airbox so that it is sealed but it should have come that way. There is plenty of air volume that the engine shouldn't have an issue with just the snorkel.

Next mod is tires. Looking at going with BFG KM3s but a lift would be nice if I could still fit the bronco in the garage...

Is your garage door a 7' or 8'... remember a 3" lift and a true 37" tire only raises it 4 to 5 inches. My 96 bronco with 9" lift and 39.5" tires fits in a 8' door.

Tie rods. Are you afraid that stronger tie rods will cause your rack to fail?

Pretty sure it is 7FT but I just need to stop being lazy and go measure.

I am not pushing it like most people. I got it for more assurance. I know it will take a lot to break the actual steering rack compared to a tie-rod. I would like to add the broncbuster steering rack upgrade but at $1000+... it is quite expensive. I am looking at adding a bumper and winch but none of the bumpers offered so far have really made me interested.

I have the ARB in route on bumper.
I plan on doing the HOSS 3.0 steering rack later. I added jks sleeves but am thinking of removing them. I carry two spare tie rods and would rather they fail than blow out a steering rack...I do push mine as far as terrain but I've been easy on the steering and not forcing it into the rocks.
