Bronco Axle Donor?

A coworker of mine has a '69 Bronco, less engine. He wants $500.00 for it. Should I pick it up for the 9" rear and part the rest?

500$? IF the body's in any shape at all drop a 351W into it, and have a classic! Once again, I'm jealous!

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

I don't know, LEVE. It has the D30 front end, 3 on the tree, the roof, door and floorpans are BADLY rusted. I was more interested in swapping the 9" rear into the CJ.

Anyone have any opinions on the 9"?

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

you "could" use it but i wouldn't spend the $$$ on it. it will have the weaker 28 spline shafts in it. i guess you could swap the shafts but why. go find a mid to late 70's 2wd ford truck (f100 i think) some of these trucks used a 61" wide big bearing, 31spline, ford 9" that even had the stronger flanged housing.

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

I got my 9" out of a '74 Bronco and it works great. I haven't had any problems with the 28 spline axles, and neither has my friend that runs his EB with the stock axles and 33s. The transfer case should sell pretty easily, any decent body panels will also. I say go for it!

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

that 3/4 ton axle that some f100s had is a good axle, and may have stronger shafts, but overall, as far as ford axles go, the 9" is the toughest considering the tubes, housing, along with the shafts. but the cool thing is that the pumpkin drops out for much easier gear replacements

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

Joey,$500 sounds a bit high for it,I picked up a 72 last summer for $150 and drove it home.Everything works great but it is very badly rusted,no salvagable body parts except the top and glass. It has the 9inch and D44 front.Now all I need is a 203 reduction unit and adapters to bolt up to my 435 and drop them into my 77 CJ7!

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

I would definitely consider the 9" for the rear. Easy for fixing and they are really tough. If I had a 44 rear in the CJ, I wouldn't bother -- an AMC20, I would.

Re: Bronco Axle Donor?

Sounds like you are just about buying a rearend for $500. Too much $$$ in my book. The dana 70 I have stashed @ work is a locking 4:56 (it's narrow- out of a work chassis dually) is $150.
