Just check the pinion offset in a stock Bronco rear end and try to keep it the same on the new rear end.
OK... I'll keep the pinion offset location to original rear.

I am getting excited, still wrapping up my 4x4 Bronco and already rolling into next project.
74 waiting in line...

Prostreet similar to look I am going for but... I want to chop the top and only have a slight rake.(Keep quarters as original)
