Offroadkarter's supercrazyawesome build thread....

I've decided since I have some big things coming for my truck, I'd start a build thread instead of posting a new thread everytime something changes....

Anyways, my truck is a 1996 Eddie Bauer with the 351/E40D/BW1356 and 3.55 open rear. I bought it with 74,XXX miles and it just rolled 76,000 miles a week ago...

Here is a bit of progression from 3 years ago til now.

Here's a pic i took on my phone 3 years ago


Here is when I went to look at it last october


Then when I bought it. Needed a new battery right off the bat
http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/15-general-discussion-bronco-wheeling-related/158353-1996-eb-351w.html



The first two things I did was take the steps off and install an alpine 9886 headunit... The step bars were completely rotted out, and I couldnt take AM/FM radio anymore...

Radio Install: http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/23-technical-write-ups/158707-how-install-aftermarket-headunit.html

Step Removal: http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/15-general-discussion-bronco-wheeling-related/160124-pulled-steps-off.html

Next up, since my front speakers were completely blown out, I installed a set of boston acoustics, which are absolutely amazing.

Front speakers: http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/23-technical-write-ups/164054-how-install-front-door-speakers.html

Not to long ago I installed a set of 35W 6000K HID's because the stock bulbs sucked...

HID install:http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/23-technical-write-ups/170947-how-install-ddm-tuning-hid-kit.html

Cool. I like seeing transformations from stock to not.

Alright here is a small update....

Kalashnikov threw in a 460 intake tube with my lift, so I decided to put it on today....

thanks to ford munky man for telling me how to install it properly

Stock on top 460 on bottom



In order for it to fit, I had to cut this bit off.


now it fits like a glove!





and, as promised, heres the beginning to my 4" lift

Here is part of the superlift standard lift kit.... I am not using those shocks because they are crap, I will be buying Bilstein 5100's. So I need to get shocks, coils and then shackle flip the rear and put this on



Here is me trying out the 460 tube... truck is alittle bit louder for sure... Butt dyno says maybe 1/2hp?

I have a set of brand new rough country 4" coil springs. I installed them, drove 3 miles home. ordered 6" coil springs, drove 3 miles back to the shop and took the 4" coil springs off. If you want them, ill sell them to ya pretty cheap.

The quickest way from point A to point B, is through the mud.

78-79's were different from 80+ no?

Plus I'm going to get a set of superlifts to match what originally came with my lift... Just not sure if I want to order from JBG since they have a pretty bad rep

rough country and superlift are the same brand. My superlift 6" coil springs are black, not red. Oh and i ordered them from JBG with no problems.

Um as far as 79 being different from 80 and up, probably. The 4" coils gave me the same lift as 6" coils on my 90. But just by going by non experience, i figured coil buckets would be the same. But its probably way different.

here is a small update for today

I started out washing my truck, and ended up doing something totally different

I replaced the weather seal for the rear window finally, no more leaks! Well, the roof still leaks Anyways....

I am glad i finally got this out of the way, easy as cake. Now my rear window wont go up without help though

Old and busted


new and not busted


I need to replace these to, they are totally rusted out and just crap....



it was rather wet under the rug... when I am out of school I plan on ripping the entire interior out and just sealing everything... my roof is still leaking, cant wait to fix that






Lastly, can anyone tell me what this is and where to get a new one? its some felt thing that the window rubs against, mine is kinda falling apart

Think this is what you're looking for....item 26 in the lower diagram. They call it a "back glass side run". I would've said window channel, but hey, potato, potahto.

or maybe this is more budget friendly:

Small update, just got the truck back from the shop... they had to work on the pass rear brake drum because it was making rythmic noises when I would brake...

Also, my drivers side radius arm bushing was shot, that got replaced... the pass side was replaced not long ago...

No more popping noises now!

Oh yeah, the shop even painted my radius arm bracket, to bad its coming off in like two months for a RA drop bracket

Alright small update... tuesday I decided to put my truck in the garage at work to see if I'd have clearence to get it out of the garage when its 4" higher.... looks like I will and then some



Also, I have to order a new coolant/washer fluid tank... Mine was held on by wire since someone lost a bolt... The wire started stretching so I was going to find a bolt to put in there... By the time I got to putting a bolt in (tuesday) I find out that the plastic tab had completely snapped into two... So i cut the wire off, and put a bolt in but I didnt trust the bolt to hold that tank in over the first bump I hit, so I had to duct tape it in place for now... I'll be ordering a new tank and some seals from LMC.... 60 bucks for a tank, ugh
