Bronco BuildingTim Guy from Murray, Kentucky, tells us he is still in the process of putting his '70 Bronco together, but he's making progress. The 351 Windsor has been equipped with a Holley carburetor and Edelbrock headers, while underneath, the vintage Ford has been given a Duff 2-inch lift and 31-inch Laredo MTs. The interior has been completely Herculined and outfitted with diamond-plate floorboards.

4runnin'Utah has more than its share of great off-road rigs, and J.P. Givens is building his Toy' to run with the best. His '86 4Runner has a 3-inch lift with Rancho RS5000 shocks and 33-inch Pro Comp MTs on American Racing rims. In the summer, J.P. pulls off the shell and drops on a custom-made tonneau. Next on the list is a set of Detroit lockers so he can get a little more wild off-road.

Getting ThereAccording to Kirk Sullivan, his '93 XJ Cherokee is about half done right now. He's already installed a Rubicon Express 4-inch lift and 31-inch Thornbirds, but he's planning to drop in new Superior axleshafts, a PowerTrax rear locker, an Auburn limited-slip up front, 4.10 gears, and 33s. Power-wise, Kirk has added a Dynomax 3-inch exhaust, a Pacesetter header, and a K&N filter. The bumper and safari rack were built by his friend Doug. Don't stop now, Kirk.
