The ones I have are standard swingaway mirrors like you have. Those were the standard mirrors for low trim trucks. The 92-96s got the smaller black mirrors on higher trim trucks but they're all power.

I wanted a change, blacked out the mirrors and grill.


Berrymans B12- stronger than seafoam and half the price.

I think It was jeremy that asked about this on the last trip. This is my on car fuel injector cleaner.

It's made from an old AC receiver drier. I gutted the insides so it's just a can and added ports for air in, cleaner out, and a fill port.

The can is filled with injector cleaner. Air enters and is regulated throgh a cheap inline regulator, down to 20-30 psi depending on the vehicle. The can is pressurized with regulated air and cleaner is pushed out through the port in the bottom, through an inline filter and into the fuel rail.

For this to work the fuel pump relay is pulled and the regulator vacuum line pulled and plugged. The regulator is set to the bare minimum required for the engine to run, usually about 20-30psi. too high and the FPR will allow all the cleaner to go into the tank, which is what you don't want. The engine is started and allowed to idle, it runs on the injector cleaner. Usually it runs out after 20-30 minutes then dies.


It didn't fix the crappy cold idle and startup problems (leaky injectors) like I hoped. But it doesn't ping anymore, so that's something.

So back in 2010 my truck caught on fire (long story) and I fixed some things but alot just got jerry rigged or forgotten about. So I started fixing all of the little crap I had been ignoring.
This partrially melted plug isn't hurting anything, but fixing it makes me feel a little better.


Then I realized that I had (almost) everything to fix the hood light, which has been held together with zip ties.


Still worked even though it was melted. I think they might have mercury in them, you can hear something sloshing around inside.

Also fixed and rewrapped one of the main wiring harnesses that was damaged.

Today is the first time I've worked on the bronco since hard rock other than cleaning my brakes. Been too busy with the other truck mostly. But I took off my snorkel to check out the air filter for the first time since I installed all of it. Filter still looks clean and new so I didn't clean it yet.
And where the filter sits.
But I found this little guy against the "pre filter" at the end of my snorkel plumbing. Guess he climbed into the snorkel at some point and never made it out.
I glued and taped all of my seams again so I'll get it reinstalled tomorrow after that stuff dries. Then I'll be ready for some water.

yes, brand new in the box 200$ shop put it in while working on the axle.

edit. actually i dont think its a tru trac. the shop said its a "ratcheting locker" you can hear it clicking when turning. just now reading about tru tracs they are supposed to be silent. so i think i have more of a real locker then a lsd

hmmm ratcheting sounds usually signify a lunchbox locker. still much better than an open diff. Im gonna put one of those detroit true tracs in when I rebuild my rear. Thats still a ways off unless something breaks.

Go to ace hardware, they carry all kinds of specialty bolts. The warn hubs are just regular Chrome/zinc allen head bolts.

They didnt have any. The diameter ln mine os really small. Was like 2 sizes smaller then what I got from warn. Ace didnt have any that small long enough.

Im going to ask what locker I got. I font feel it engaging. I just hear a faint clicking

I always find bolts at ACE. they have tons of obscure fasteners if you ask for help and get someone who knows what hes looking for.
