In a rut...

Hey guys,
I need some help. Seems like I am in a Bronco rut. I just don't have the same interest in wrenching on my Bronco anymore. Anyone else go through this? Ideas on how to get out of it? I'm not depressed or anything, just seem to have lost the focus I once had on building it.

I went through the same thing after I bought 3 other Bronco's and a BMW. I dont have time or money to fix it all so I have to pick and choose things one at a time.

What i've always found helps is looking through picture threads and seeing different mods and trucks in action. Gives me new ideas and motivation to go and out work on something

I have to have a couple of projects in the shop so I can go from one to another when I loose interest or get aggravated.

What he said. If you're always tinkering, repairing, addressing emergencies, well then , it's expected you wouldn't be enjoying your rig. And nobody says it has to crawl, run fast or deeply ford mudpits and rivers to be enjoyable. load it up with the family, camping gear and eats and go find a state or national park to pull up and set up camp, go exploring. Take it down the highway, go see something, a museum, a drive-in movie, but just use it.

If you're looking to upgrade a part, go out and break the existing one. That'll force you to get on it.

Thanks guys, glad to hear I am not the only one. Don't get me wrong I still love my Bronco, just not motivated to wrench on it at the movement.

Maybe I do just need to get her out in the hills again and play for a bit. "All build and no play"

Find a different project, and when the urge to wrench on her come back, get on it.

I'm with SR Willis and everybody else. I'm also in a similar predicament with my '99 GSX-R 600. It's been sitting and the next thing it needs, I've never done before. Ergo, I'm not jazzed about digging in and effing up. That said, my "Serenity" build had slowed to a snails pace because of mechanical repairs and issues with the truck. I enlisted the help of some of my master technicians and friends here and at the dealership and look at me now. I'm specing a tie rod flip, tranny cooler install (parts at home), trail light install (parts at home), upgraded alty and starter (cuz it's ez), and planning my first awesome excursion of 2017 to Indian Valley reservoir. The French have a word for what you're experiencing "en nui" - a feeling of listlessness and restlessness with a lack of desire to motivate. So, toke one, grab a BLM map of your favorite spot and start charting a course you've not yet taken. The mystery of what lies ahead will spur your desire to get into the driver's seat and enjoy your truck. You don't have to go wheeling, just take a drive. I'd recommend the Grand Valley OHV area in Grand Junction/Clifton. When I was there, it was amazing just how much terrain there is to cover. I took the attached pictures when I drove out there for a week back when the little man was still very little. I stayed with my brother in G.J. and we had a blast. I drove all over that area. I love the riverfront park there. It's a great place to bring the poles in the Bronco and toss a line.

I know the feeling, having the exact same issue with my Bronco right now as well. Best thing to do is to get there with it and have some fun, hit the trails etc. Unfortunately, my issue stems from dumping a huge sum of cash on it with zero return and a lack of faith that if I do take it out, she will get me home under her own power.

But hey sure does look pretty sitting in the driveway.

I was actually able to wrap up a few details on some unfinished projects-namely the center console. After that I was thinking, well next I have a rear main seal leak, shackle flip, etc and instead of digging into any of those I just put away my tools and shut the garage...

Great shots I particularly like the one with your son. That might be part of it for me, my son is 18 now, getting ready to move off to college in the fall. He has all these plans for the summer. It hit me that our weekend father son work on the Bronco is coming to and end... :(

That really sucks on your build. I hope you get it figured out. I at least, feel the rewards for the $ I have spent on mine. Mine is in the garage, so I don't even get to see it looking pretty in the driveway..

Again, thanks fellow Bronco owners, I bet I just need to load her up for a camping\wheeling trip and not worry too much about it. The upgrade list can wait, the Bronco is reliable and ready to go "as is", no need to concern myself with endless upgrades..

Food for thought from one Dad to another

My son is now mostly 12. We've just started our father/son repair time. Maybe you should give him the truck, that way it becomes his project and bonds you together that much more. That's what I plan to do when my boy reaches a certain age. The scenario is like this... ..Me - Dewey, c'mere. Dewey - Yeah, Dad. Me - Grab the repair book and history for "Serenity". Dewey - Here it is, Dad. Me - (tosses keys) Here, she's yours. It still needs x, y, and z. But you know that. The (insert part name) is due here next week. You may never sell this truck without my consent. Dewey - Wow, can I take it for a drive right now? Me - Drive 'er every day, son.

But I digress. Those shots at Grand Valley OHV area are from when I had just gotten it running again. The wipers didn't work right. The stereo had no reception. The rear window motor had just died. I hadn't yet smogged it (we're in Northern California) and it had a red temporary window tag. I drove for 28 hours straight from Rohnert Park, ca to Grand Junction, Co via the lonliest road/pony express route. It was early spring and I didn't know if 4 wheel drive worked. I got to just about Ely and encountered a stretch of Hwy 50 (The lonliest road) with semi's and other vehicles pulled off and waiting for the snow to stop falling and the plow (not in that order). I slowed as I approached the Nevada State trooper doing a chain check. I held up my box 'o chains. He looked at me, my truck, my chain box, smiled, and waved me on. So, I drove for about a mile on this snowed over road until I reached a point where I could pull off and put it in 4H as I'd already slid twice while snail crawling along the road. Put it in four wheel drive and spun cookies! Woo hoo, it works! The rest of the trip out was pretty uneventful except for when I stopped at a Conoco Philips station just inside the Utah line. They took $40 cash and I said which pump. I started pumping... ..it stopped at $10-. I went inside and politely stated that something must have stopped working. They look and say, "no, you gave us $10.00". So, I calmly and reasonably state that I am certain I handed them two $20- bills and can do math well enough to know that I am that much lighter in my wallet. They disagree. So, I put the nozzle back. Closed up my fuel door. Got in the truck and did a small burn out at the pump (they have a gravel lot) and threw stones at everything. There was a moment about an hour later when a bunch of Utah State Police came flying up behind me and I thought "oh poop, that was a bad idea." They all flew past me (apparently 80MPH isn't fast enough) and I didn't see them again. It was shortly after this that I did over 100MPH as I drove over the Tundra out there.
That said... ..bone stock, barely running right, not fully registered, I went there and came back. We don't need a lift, winch, lights, and custom rock sliders to enjoy our vehicles. We just need to go for a drive. One of my favorite things to do is drive my wife to dinner in our nice clothes, pull up right in front, and step out in style.

So, do go out and camp/drive trails. Go fishing with four buddies. Do not despair. Talk to your son about it. He'll be responsive, hell, take him on a week or more excursion with other rigs and friends before he ships out.

I just went through the same thing last year from the flip side of things. Your son going to college may limit the amount of weekends you guys spend together wrenching, but it will drastically increase the value you place on them and will surely get you out of the rut. I know last summer I had a lot on my plate. I was working 65 hour weeks on average to pay for school, and the time I wasn't working I had little things to do on the Bronco to get it all squared away for the voyage to school. The longest trip before last summer I had taken in the Bronco was an hour ride each way to see an Army football game with a few of my buddies. Then, last Summer I went with my family down to the East Coast Bronco Round Up which was 2.5 hours each way. To school for me, it's 3.5 hours each way, which I've probably now gone there and back 15 times by now, so my dad and I really wanted the Bronco in good shape. If your sons taking the Bronco, that alone should get you going soon making sure everything's perfect. However, the best part of last summer by far was the outings we had in the trucks. Like I stated, we went to the Bronco Round up for a weekend of wheeling and, well, Broncos; and went to a mud bog. Both were a blast and are back on the calendar for this summer. Now, every time I come home, even it's just for a day and a half, my dad and I hit the garage hard getting the trucks ready for this summer and have a blast doing so. Whether it's stripping a parts truck for an engine, building rock sliders for his Bronco for the off-road park, or rebuilding the 7.3 for the mud bog, we have something to do and the drive to get after it. Plus, colleges give a bit of time off so I'm home every few weeks, plus about a week at Thanksgiving and a month for Christmas. Also you've got to remember that if he's taking the Bronco, it's going to need some work from being rode around. I know mine needs ball joints this summer and I just replaced a radius arm and front drive shaft after they broke as I was going through a snow bank. But it's well worth it, college really shows the versatility of a Bronco. The ability to fit a dorms worth of junk in the bed, but also being able to fit 5 with rear seat down is great. Plus whats better than exploring a new environment in style, especially with the sound system you guys just added. If he can't bring the truck, you know he'll be itching to get out and enjoy it every chance he has when he comes home.

I doubt this rut will last long but until it's over, just enjoy it. Enjoy the truck, along with the time with your son, and you guys will be out tackling another project in no time.
