What can i do

I am 14 and in high school and am in love with broncos, but, i dont have one yet, still gotta get my permit in october. I was wondering if a body lift did anything besides make clearance for tires in enhancing off-road performance. When i get a bronco i would like to do all i can to enhance mileage, make it perform good offroad, but not hender on road performance. I would probably only take it off road two or three times a week. Also if you know any websites where i could learn more about cars such as engines, suspensions and everything it would be appreciated. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: What can i do

If you take it offroad 2x 3x times a week, and really use it offroad, expect to be servicing it all the time. You can't be doing this much offroading, slogging through mud, into water, over rocks, without damage, and without lots of maintenance.

Yep and full sized trucks aren't famous for good mileage.

Re: What can i do

good to see you here. a bronco will make you broke though!
Try not to bring up all ikinds of old poss unless you havea big question pertaining to the subject.

as for offroading 2-3 times a week, good luck on that....
its gonna be hard to have a good job, stay in your school, and 4 wheel.....

Trust me, i know!
working odd long hours, getting up at 4AM to drive an hour plus to go to classes( 6 hours of automotive study, working towards master ASE cert), then drive and 1 1/2 to work, then trying to wrecnh on my rigs. it will get really tiring, i hardly have time to wheel my junk(maybe one weekend amonth), but i also spend 90% of my free time wrenching on both my wheeling rigs.
4-5 hours of sleep are all i get a night.
