I have a 71 w/ a 302 and a PTO winch. I am running a 3 1/2" front super flex coil from Jeffs Bronco Graveyard and a 3" rear new superlift leafs. I have just recently put 33/12.50/15 Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires with a 15X10 American Racing Outlaw II wheel. I have also cut out fender wells in order to allow for tire clearance when offroading. I am now doing finally assembly of Bronco, but she should work out just fine.

I got kind of a piece meal lift. The rear is WH 4.5" 11-packs, the front is 3.5" coils about 12 years old. Cut fenders with Peerless 33x12.5x15 Mudders (almost a knock off of the BFG MTs, they are made by Bridgestone) and black AR wagon wheels.

Most folks order stuff from the vendors....

I live in Long Beach and I bought a '73 in December and just getting started on fixing it up. I used to have a '75 years ago and wish I'd never sold it.

As for off-roading try the Mojave National Preserve, the Stoddard Wells area off I15 before Barstow or Red Rock Canyon off H14 north of the town of Mojave. You can pick up a copy of the 'California Atlas and Gazetteer' from DeLorme. They are full of trails and are very accurate. I use them to find hunting spots.

If you live near the LBC try going to the car swap meet at Vet's Stadium on the 2 Saturday of each month.

Good luck.
