I'm not really a fan of the wheels or the tires. Planing to put on my old ones soon. Not sure if I'm gonna sell the ones on it now or keep them to swap over for when I wana go wheeling.

Didnt get around to doing anything yet to the New Bko. Moved my trailer and sprayed the New Bko's engine bay with WD40. Than went to Advanced Discount auto and got a bunch of supplies to change out all the fluids and other maintainance Items on the New Bko.
New Bko next to Old one.

Got home tonight and hosed off the engine bay than sprayed it with simple green and rinsed that off.
Poured radiator flush in the cooling system. I'll be draining out and flushing the cooling system tomorrow.
Poured a bottle of sea foam into the engine and a bottle into the intake. Let it sit and for a bit and started it up. Good thing it was dark and foggy in my area so the large amount of white smoke didn't freak anyone out in my neighborhood.

I don't get it. What's wrong with the other Bronco other than the bent (LR) bumper end. I obviously missed the story and mostly remember the roll-bar and linex install....gotta get on this site more often. School + Work ='s No Spare Time! -Kevin-

The drivers side frame rail was pushed forward about 1/4 to half a inch. It had a crumple to the rear of the frame and in the wheel well area it was slightly twisted. So the insurance companies want to total it cause the repair is gonna cost more than 80% of the value of the truck that they are coming up with. If you drive behind the old one it will look like its going down the road sideways.

Aw man that sucks, I'm sorry to hear that. You know it blows the way insurance pays next to nothing in a claim. I've been with Progressive and my agent said a high payoff for a '96 Bronco if I remember was like $4200 a mid was $3100 but I do remember the low was $2200. I couldn't believe it! She told me about a company called "Hagerty" and they insure classics. I talked to the guy and he was really honest and cool. Basically, you just fill out a list from a sheet they fax you listing what you have on the vehicle and they come up with a fair market value for the accessories and you send them four pictures and if there is a claim you can take it wherever you want or repair it yourself. It has to be a vehicle you don't specifically use as a daily driver (or you drive another vehicle mostly) and it has to be garaged for safety (night-time) and it can't be a wheeler (meaning wheeled off-road). Pretty much have to be careful on that last one. The problem I ran into is mine, as of now, is too new because he thought I said '86 which would have been covered, but he said check back because the age criteria changes all the time! This would definitely be good for guys here who don't wheel their trucks and have them loaded with extras and want to be covered above and beyond in an accident or if it was stolen. -Kevin-

So that's a 6" suspension with a 3" body running on 37's? Do you notice a huge difference getting in compared to the 4" lift and would the removal of the body lift make it a lot easier or not? Your side view pictures at the gas station make it look tough to get into. I like the higher stance and the wheel well clearance but just don't like body lifts. Longer bolts, everything extended like steering, gas filler pipe, etc. Plus, the bumper gaps and even cooling issues. Boy I tell you 8 mpg is hard to swallow especially with today's prices. Are the gears still 3.55's or did the trooper have them changed for the 37's? You'll need at least 4.88's and 5.13's would be better but your millage sucks already and you need to be careful with the E4OD for now if it is stock. I have 35's and 4.56's and sort of wish I went with 4.88's for a little more punch! Either way it will look great with your soft-top and roll-bar installed, Congrats!! -Kevin-

Yes I noticed a big difference getting in and out of it.
I think it would make it easier to get in and out with out the body lift, but I also want to go to 35's as well.

Oh, I missed the post where you said you were ditching the body lift and putting your 33's on till they're toast then putting the 35's on. Either way, personally it's good to see you're getting rid of the body lift. To tell you the truth I would have a blast swapping one truck to another. It's kind of like having a free gift card to 4Wheel parts and buying everything you've always wanted to put on your ride. Hey I was showing my wife the pictures and she saw the part about the WD40 and the Simple Green. What is that for? Does the WD40 dissolve the grease and help it slide off? I use Simple Green all the time painting, it works wonders to eliminate 2/3rd's of all touch-ups, and on some engine parts, so I'm guessing it's just to clean everything off after the WD40 does it's trick? I've used WD40 to remove stickers, paint, and tons of other things and saw a show on TV that told the history and it was really informative but I never thought to spray it all over my engine compartment to spruce it up, always thought it would look too greasy.... -Kevin-

I don't have the fitment list in front of me but IIRC you can run 37's on a 6" lift with minimal rubbing and really if needed you could swap down to a 1" body lift, while you remove the 3", just to tighten up all the bushings. If you can afford to I'd keep the 37's like you said for wheeling. Hey if you can, post up some pics when you do the cage swap. I won't be doing one for quite a while but love the look of yours... -Kevin-

For the wd40 thing, it loosens up the caked on grease and makes it easier to come off. Also when you go to the used car dealers and they open up the hood and everything is all shiny and new looking..... It's cause they sprayed everything with wd40.

Changed the wiper blades.
Finished doing the oil change today.
Drained the trany fluid, changed the fluid and added a drain plug to the pan.
The drain plug is the same as the oil pan plug.

Some degreasers wear out stickers like the specs of the engine or emission stickers.
Dressings are pretty similar to wd40.
I've never seen wd40 mark plastics yet.

The penetrating oil in it will attack some plastics & rubber. And the paraffin gums shit up. Why would you want your truck to look like something on a used car lot? Clean & dry is better for everything.

My nephew came over after school and gave me a hand with my truck again. Put on a bully step to get into the bko and flushed the cooling system.

So nice to have a willing nephew to come over and do manual labor to my truck for me, also a good learning experience for him. As he's doing the work I'm teaching him about the systems.

So when are they gonna have the medical nano bots ready and safe to work on people? Been frigin aching a lot lately. Also a few more headaches than usual....
