nah, impounded because they weren't 'legal' and i wasn't home for quite some time, so they were auctioned off before i was even able to get them back. all i needed for the F150 was a rear driveshaft and it was done.. so needless to say i never got to wheel it Sad

yeah, that town sucks majorly.. their zoning BS is strict as all hell because of rowan college.. god forbid the bronco was on a trailer with no motor or tags and the F150 didn't have an inspection sticker

I would have to make sure they got a close look at the arsenal. That is crazy. It takes 6 months to get a warning for parking my trailer in my yard.

Those were great looking trail hogs!!

I really dont understand how people can complain about what people do in their own yards. Its one thing if the truck is leaking fuel or coolant or whatever, but if its just sitting, who cares? I would have flipped if someone touched my trucks.

We have castle law here. It takes a lot to remove something from the property. They even mail you the warning. The PO that drives by and takes note sends it in. They don't put it on the property.

If someone touched my car, it would be the last thing they touched.

Before I killed them, I would make them wash and wax the spot they touched at gunpoint.

you wouldn't have said that if you saw the bronco all clean.. it had dents galore from many years of being a mud truck and hitting trees.. only straight thing on it was the tailgate and that's only because it was brand spanking new

I don't have pics of my old trail hogs, but they were only beautiful to me. I do appreciate a truck I can beat the hell out of and dents just add to it's personality!!

the bronco had a lot of personality and a lot of history to back it up.. my buddy that i had gotten it off of had it for 3-4 years and ran around on 33x12.50 TSL's and it was virtually unstopable.. then when he got a new truck, i traded him my PS2 for the truck as a whole minus motor and the TSL's hahah.. best trade i ever made!

sticking with my 400m, they have a pretty decent amount of torque right out of the box. i'm just going to pull it out once i get it to my new shop and replace the rod and main bearings, timing chain, new cam, ARP oil pump shaft and maybe new cam bearings.. topped off with pocket porting the heads, edelbrock intake and edelbrock carb.. should be a decent little torque monster so i'm going to run a 6AL to keep the rpms down under 5500 so my rods stay intact lol
