    Forest find Bronco

    So I was driving in LA yesterday and found this shop with at least 25 Broncos in their yard plus some old Landcruisers. What a gold mine.

    The fence makes it look like they're in jail. What a selection though. They look to be in pretty good shape too.

    Sorry for the late response...OMG that is Bronco Heaven. I have spent the past week trying to get this old 74 to run and so far no luck. Did get the engine to turn over with a new solenoid and battery. No spark and now running a temp. Fuel supply and electric pump. Just started snowing, will try again tomorrow.

    Done deal

    It took a little longer than I thought but finally got it running and drove it on the trailer, power washed and put in its stahl waiting to be revitalized. It sat for ten years in the forest but survived and seems to be pretty solid considering. It has the sport package with dual fuel tanks, rear 9inch 4.56 Trac lock large bearing, front 44 4.56, Dana 20 3.15:1 twin stick, NP435E wide ratio 6:69:1 1st gear, SS trim. The 302 is unknown but does run. Looking for a name on this one. Also came with a old Warn 8274 that need a complete service if anyone has done this please share experience.2B0CF66A-69EA-41D9-8B82-D9C65FB636B5.jpgB6B0BF33-5BF3-4481-B86A-E047362333AF.jpg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
