Awesome! Glad to see it painted and on the road again- thought you started one of your other fords. Looks fantastic. It's cool to say you did it yourself!

What type and size of tire did you go with in the end?


Thanks! I still need to get tires for it, and it didn't pay to put them on if it's going to sit over winter anyway. Currently I'm running 265/75 r16, Goodyear wranglers in the back, and BFG long trails up front. I'd like to go with aluminum slots in the future, and some BFG All terrains in that size.

It was awesome to daily drive it for a few months. So far no incidents with the paint... :pray:

Well, I did start on another Ford, my once camo 79 bronco to be exact! That one is going to be painted next weekend, if all goes well and I can't wait to drive it again. Right now I'm driving a 99 Ranger, and am dying to switch back to a fullsize. :lol:

I'll try to update both when I get the time. I planned on a blue and white two tone, but it looks like I'm just going blue due to time constrictions.

78-79 bronco look best two tone but it is a nightmare of prep paint and trim work....
