First full size Bronco

Hey, I'm new to bronco's but not to Fords, just picked up this beast , saved it from becoming a toaster or some other appliance. It's a 79 bronco , has a 351m or 400 in it, np435 4speed and np205, Dana 60rear full floater and a d44 front 8lug and leaf springs. Hasn't been touched since 1998, frame is good , body not so much, the plan is to make a good plow truck out of it, probably won't see any road duty but I'm picking at it and will most likely have it fixed up enough that I could drive it on the road. I'm just like that I guess. Here it is, so far I've installed the gauges and dash bezel from my 79 f350 parts truck,

Not too shabby...broncos are fun. Never understood all the rage until I bought my 80 in high school...and I've had one in the driveway ever since.

The body from the pic doesn't look really all that bad. Should make a decent plow truck.

I believe the front and rear axles were changed as a set. The front axle show no signs of having radius arm mounts. I picked it up this way

The body is rough, real rough and been repaired over repairs, the entire floor is 1/4 checker plate from the firewall to the tailgate. I'll let the rest of the pics speak for themselves.ill go take some more pics
