Nice job Willie. Is it just my eyes or the fit of the kit, or did you replicate a body lift on this too?

By the way, any chance of a post of it's big brother?

Well, outside of having a wider stance on the Bronco.
(and a link to the wheels :D I can't find them searching RPP even tho I swear I saw them once)

It looks Perty Dang Good.
Great looking lift
Super nice looking wheels

Great looking build.

And yes, do show pics of the Bigger Bro.
It has some great looking Flex to it and nice weathering.
