I moved it from one spot to another spot and back again, so I could plow around it.
funny thing is... my poor dog didn't know what to do with herself. stay in the warm and running plow beast or follow me to the Bronco.
she loves the Bronco but she'll sit in the passenger side of the plow beast with me all damn day, as happy as a pig in slop.

I always use a jack under the arm before removing the sway bar and shock(s) from the beam; I also would loosen the RA nut just enough to give it some more flex when dealing with the spring.

Decision? What's that? I always thought the rig gets the special attention before the Bust My Window does.

Its a Big Mexican Woman

Its got leaky struts up front and needs to be lowered anyway, the bronco just has stiff shocks that make things rattle even more than normal and drive me insane.

What did you do to your bronco today?

I looked at it again. Can't do much until this 1/2" thick skating rink between my garage and Bronco melts. Before you make fun of me, this is SC - we don't stock up on things like salt and snow shovels. I had a 1/2 bag of salt, but used it on the sidewalk and front steps. Should finish melting tomorrow.



Oh, and I almost forgot...Go Tigers!

You Should be.

Oh ya, I put in a CB today.

Oh Crap, Another Sunday Driver.

Got the heads and valve train installed. Now I need to buy a lifter bleed down tool so I can check valve lash.

35" tires aren't selling, '90 FSB's not selling, so I put my bad-ass snowmobile up for sale.
I gotta get me some money so I can get my '95 stuff started/finished.

So... while I didn't do anything to it specifically today, I'm trying like hell to come up with the cash to do some things.
guess you could say... "I thought fondly of it".

I been saying that to my BlackBetty every winter for the last 16 years.
I'll be happy when I can get 'em both, sitting together, keeping each other company in the barn.

Right now... Betty knows, '95 doesn't have a clue yet but she'll learn too.
My girls get loved and used and loved some more.

Gotta take care of them, if you expect them to take care of you.
