Thumbs up My 1990 XLT Introduction

Figured it's about time for an introduction:

Here is my recently purchased 1990 Bronco XLT! Its got a replacement 351W from a 1996 with about 90K on it, E40D Tranny riding on 33x12.5 Micky Thompsons.
Some upgrades I plan to do, maybe not in this order:

- Re-gear front and rear diffs to 4:11 or 4.56 (undecided)
- 4" Suspension lift
- 35x12.5 Tires after mine wear out
- Long tube headers with true dual exhaust
- Roll bars for back
- Cut out fender flares
- Custom mount fuel storage to rear wheel mount
- Upgraded front bumper with added winch

But before I can afford any of those, I first need to fix a few little (hopefully little) issues:

- Front most passenger side shock absorber is toast
- Engine idles rough sometimes, seems like its missing spark
- OD light is flashing on and off, started that yesterday :(
- Fix rusty areas, not too worried tho as its mostly a fishing/hunting truck

Yo thw0mp,
For your Broncos questions, it is better to ask each seperately in Noobie Bronco Tech Questions. Flame free zone. This will get more attention and you can build up your post count to get into other sections such as Bronco and Ford Parts/Accessories (75 posts required to view).

When you have time, fill out your Bronco Info with year, engine size, transmission type, transfer case type (manual or electric shift), locking hub type (automatic or manual) info & major mods such as a Lift, etc. for better responses.

Looks good! I admire you guys that are able to tackle the electronics on the newer BKOs. I like my 79, just enough but not to much.
