Been talking to autofab/john and just wanting to see some photos of trucks to kinda go off of. Looking at stance of truck and hood fender combo's. lookin at purchasing autofab hood fenders? Any help would be appreciated. Really like the old iron. Trying to keep old iron alive one truck at a time. thanks from wyoming.

    As far as suspension I would look around and find some pics, specs of the Moss Brothers Bronco. If memory serves me correct the front suspension is the same as the earlier small broncos and the 78-79 Broncos. Lot's of stuff available.........
    See my F100 in another thread, a drop down fiberglass hood is all that it has. Everything else is steel. I take my truck up to the Pinedale Wyoming area a lot in the summer. Wyoming is great!

    Welding was done by me. I weld some of the areas hotter with more filler rod so the wolds looks a bit different.

    You ruined it for us Mark! LOL! Actually I cant wait to talk with Steve about that truck...

    As for photos of 73-79 trucks let me know what your looking for specifically and I am sure I can manage finding a couple photos of what your looking for. As for parts products, John at Autofab has top notch stuff, but it can be a little pricey, however the product is well worth it.

    Let me know of specific photos your looking for, I am sure I could manage to find a few.....:p

    I'm surprised no one has commented on the front fenders. According to the posts on DR they are steel. From a F700 if I remember correctly.
