Time for an update lets talk axles. I salvaged the Dana 60 (non kingpin)and Sterling 10.5 out of the 93 when I started my swap. Here they are with some POR 15 on them. Look at those drums they are huge. I decided on yukon 5.13 gears front / rear, ARB air lockers front / rear, with warn premium hubs up front. Some things I pay to have done. Gears are one of them. Sure I can buy a caliper and set the backlash, shims, wear pattern, and such. But that is one area that if not done properly can be a quick failure. I had advanced 4wheel systems install them. It was nice to take them down on a flat bed prepped and ready. I bought a master install kit with all new bearings and seals as well.



I decided to swap the rear axle for disk brakes. Taking the drum brakes off saved a lot of weight. Also getting the drum off the hub was a pain. I beat on them for a while before I started to get worried about damaging the hub. So I took them over to Les Schwab by my house and had them put them in their 50 ton press. Granted I sprayed PB blaster on them days before. Once on the press they loaded it down and.... still nothing happened. I was standing back at the shop doors with the manager watching. Then the tech took a hammer and smacked the side of the drum and BOOM they shot off as if it were a bomb, my ears started ringing. The manager and I both jumped and he looked at me and said "whoa I bet that woke the shop up" Some stuff I just can't do in my little one car garage. This photo is of the disc swap I have ruff stuff brackets, and E350 van rotors, with 1 ton chebby calipers (I would later swap the calipers to a parking brake option).









Here is a shot of the swapped parking brakes. I have to say I feel A LOT more comfortable setting the brake when having to get out of my truck on a hill by myself to grab a winch line. Sure the truck is in "Park" but why risk it.

Here is a shot of the front Dana 60.



Once I had it torn down I decided I should strengthen the steering. I had to drill and tap the upper pass knuckle for the hi steer mount. Then reamed the holes to accept 1 Ton Chebby TRE's. Because this Bronco is street legal heims are a no go per state law in Utah for steering.



The steering is 1.5" X .25" Wall DOM tubing. I bought the weld in threaded bungs and welded them all in (my welding skills started getting better). I have a Lincoln MIG 216 that I have owned for about 7 years.



I purchased a PSC hydro assist steering ram, and mounts.



There are lots of ways to mount these. I mounted mine to the axle tube and not the diff housing / cover. I welded the mounts in and had a local hydraulic shop make some pressure lines.







Lastly I took the factory Ford steering box and tapped a high pressure port and low pressure port for the lines. Once the sag swap was done on the pump this system does very well turning my 40's with ease.

isn't hydro assist the only way togo? I love my Redneck Ram steering system, stinks that you cant run heim jts though. I need to scrape together some funds to add heims to the rest of my steering system.

you certainly have done it right. I might just have to become a copy cat....o wait I already am as everything I have done to my Bronco with the acceptation of a few things Ive copied from other members. Your truck looks awesome the mods you have chosen are certainly great upgrades as well as functional.

Well, I'm not sure what photobucket's issue is, but I had to go back and fix a couple of broken link pictures in my last post.

Either way, onward.

One of my favorite projects that I've worked on over the years is the engine.
The 300 is a strong, stout engine that makes a crazy amount of torque at low RPMs (about 260ft/lbs at 1400 RPMS) and is amazing on the trails with it's grunt and long (almost) 4" stroke. And it can get some pretty decent mpg. My record was 23.

However, at 112hp, it leaves a lot to be desired on the open road. I was constantly losing speed on any kind of grade.

So, one of my first upgrades to address this issue was to upgrade the exhaust. The stock exhaust was a skinny 6-to-1 manifold with a 1.75" exhaust pipe. Ford couldn't care less about good flow and simply tossed something on there that worked.



However, when they came out with the fuel injected 300, they opened it up a bit and gave it dual manifolds. These were a massive improvement over stock and helped the engine really breath. And the best part was, they were a direct fit.



I purchased an entire 2.5" exhaust from the engine back and assembled it in the driveway.















It also didn't help matters that there were chunks of the original cat lodged inside the muffler. So, not only did I improve the exhaust flow, but I remedied some serious issues this poor engine was suffering with.





Even though the projects were a few years apart, my next venture was increasing the horsepower. The stock carburetor was a single barrel carb that was very undersized for the engine at around 190cfm. I'd heard a decent two barrel was a good improvement, but I wanted to go all the way and went with with a four barrel.

Offenhauser makes a great intake for it.



Since the stock exhaust heat riser would now be missing, I found a heated spacer off of an old Ford Galaxy so that I could use coolant for warmth.



Pretty big size difference in the carburetor:





Time to strip off all the old stuff.

At the end of the day all I kept was the engine, transmission/transfercase, steering column and some other odds and ends




Easy way to drop the trans assembly


I sold the axles and tires for more than I originally paid for the Bronco lol


Off to the scrapper


Meanwhile I began to work on the red Body


Had a huge dent in the passenger corner


Got some more shiny

GOOD MORNING Bronco World,

First things first. To all who have served and or are still serving. THANK YOU!!! It is because of YOU, and your families that

I for one sleep very well at night knowing that you have my six . That you are there to shield me so that I may

live a life of Freedom, from those, Both Foreign & Domestic who wish to take down this Nation.

You wrote out a blank check for this country forfeiting your life, That check I cant cover, so for that I will be forever be

indebted to YOU! Thank You for preserving the Freedoms that we take for granted every day. May God Bless You and your Families

the way you Protect this Nation.



Happy Friday, before there were cars and trucks on the earth there already were low geared Creepy Crawlers roaming the country side.

We were out on a night run stopped to water the tires and this fella came up and said he wanted to crawl with us.

Awesome trucks and beautiful scenery along with highly technical trails, all of you guys are so fortunate to be able to have access to places like that to play. I would not even need a truck to enjoy such scenery, i would just sit and stare at the landscape and be in amazement. The builds here are exceptional and you all have my admiration.

New axles, wahoo!

Figured I would go all out and do the one ton swap while I was doing the build
Found a set of SD axles for good deal so I snatched em up!




Manual lockouts already installed, bonus!


Cleaning and painting along with installing the new suspension brackets



Bolting up brackets and mounts the the frame


Next up is the front suspension
I opted to make my own radius arms rather than buying an off the shelf set
1 1/4" heims for the frame side and bushings for the axle




52" center to center, they are long!

It was a happy day for me when my little stock sized tires were finally worn out enough to replace.

I decided to go with some 31" BFT A/T tires. I didn't (and still don't) have any interest in ever lifting it or regearing it, and with a 3.00 rear end, I wanted to stay at a somewhat conservative size. Big tires may be great for mud and rock climbing, but for what I do, too big of tires can cause problems. So, 31" was a great size.

I also wanted to replace the rusted old original rims, so I found some used aluminum rims locally.





Since the rims and tires I was going to be using were already separated, I took it on to mount the tires myself. Not too bad of a task with a bunch of dish soap and a crowbar, but it wasn't my favorite.





New tires on the Bronco







I finished just in time.


















Now, skip forward a few years (last year actually) and it was time to replace these. I called the local Discount Tire and asked if they had any of the new BFG KO2 tires in and they said they did. So, I drove down, and apparently they goofed and only had two 31" tires in. So, they offered me 32" tires for the same price. I couldn't pass it up. I don't think I'll go any bigger, but they sure look good.





These parking lot pictures just weren't going to do so I had to go for a drive. They were draining the local reservoir so it's a great place to go driving around.

Oh, I forgot to mention my brother also got himself a Bronco to match mine:



So, for a change of scenery, some pics of what I love to DO with the Bronco.

My wife and I are love the outdoors and we're off camping or backpacking several times a summer, so the Bronco couldn't be more of a perfect vehicle. It's great on the open road, comfortable, and easy to drive. And once it's off-road, it's unstoppable. Plus, there's room for all our stuff!


























GOOD!




When you're 40 miles away from civilization up on a mountain top, you need a dependable ride:






And it's nice to know it's sitting there waiting for you, ready to start at half a turn of the key when you get back, because this is not where you want to have problems:













And for a quick project pic, I also found a great place to put a highlift jack:

Back home from a long week of traveling for work. I saw some engine mods from the other guys so made sense to show you all mine!!

honestly I had not really planned on digging into the engine at all, but the bargain hunter in my got the best of me and I found a good deal on the Edlebrock upper and lower intake. The only complaint I had read about the 351 was the intake sucked, so this was a perfect find!


Lower Intake


Upper intake


Primer


more primer


lower intake black!


upper


another shot of upper


This was the tough part. I couldn't figure out how to do a decent job of taping this off. I ended up just spraying some into a cup and using a paint brush to hand paint it.


From a distance it looks pretty good. Up close you can see the brush marks and the unevenness of the coat. I think it still looks pretty good.

Tearing things out was not a huge problem, just took some time and we made sure to take lots of pictures and label everything so hopefully reinstall will go smoothly.

Unfortunately for us we broke both front bolts on the lower intake. This is where all the time, energy, money on various tools and aggravation comes into play These things just snapped like twigs with hardly any pressure on them at all. I guess it could have been worse, it could have been the back bolts. This truck has been garaged its entire life, you would think the bolts would be in better shape. Here is everything out:


We had a He#! of a time getting them out. You can see in this pic we have drilled out the bolt and are using an EZ Out. Well, we broke the ez out also.. I though we were "done for". Everything I read about breaking ez outs involved pulling the heads and taking them to a machine shop.. UGH... By some stroke of luck I had drilled the bolt all the way through and we were able to use air tool with a pointed tip and shatter the ez out inside the hole. The broken pieces just fell out the bottom.

We messed around with it for a few more hours, but never did the the bolt out. I ended up just re tapping the hole. The driver side we are still working on. It got so late in the evening that we called it a weekend. I am just going to retap it as well.


Here are the factory upper lower vs. Edlebrock upper lower:



Here is the lower intake test fitted:



"Lucky me" I have a 96 and the firewall is in the way: The yellow grease pencil line is where I had "adjust" the firewall.


Here is the upper intake test fitted. Looks pretty sharp hiding in there.


I found some GT40 heads on line I was all over the board on what heads to get, but at the end of the day, I just can't spend that kind of cash on the likes of Edelbrock, Dart, AFR, etc.

I finished up the firewall adjustment with BFH.. even found some paint that "sorta" matches my maroon color




After that, I glitz up the BBK throttle body to match the intake.



GT40 Heads








Everything looks pretty clean inside, happy to see that.



I got the intake braket extended. I also had to grind out the upper hole and bend the metal at the same angle as the intake. Took a bit of trial and error but here is what I ended up with:



Its hard to get a good shot of it installed but you can see it tucked back in there:




After it was all said and done replaced or did the following:
Edelbrock 3881 intake system (upper & lower)
Gt40 heads
BBK 56mm Throttle Body
refurbished Gen3 4 port injectors
New spark plugs
New 8mm spark plug wires
New cap and rotor
New timing chain.
New seals and bolts all around
Also replaced the AC clutch as I broke the connector.


Some pictures below:








She idles fantastic now, smooth as glass. I am sure that is mainly because of the tune up pieces.

Good Evening

This is the completion of the last video. But after watching the first time I was able to determine
that the reason I was having so much trouble was my frt locker wasn't working. Well its good to know
I can make it up that obstacle without it. Hard a way to find out.

I don't know who sent it But Thank you all the same.

Here is something new but yet old I am currently packing up my house and ran accross 3 pictures

from the past. These are 3 photos of my first Bronco a 87 Eddie Bauer.





In this shot looks like we are doing a little rainy day camping along the River, by the looks of the

wife and the type of coat she is wearing. However with that said she is a Native Arizona gal,

so her blood is a little thin, when she is wearing a coat like that a good majority of you

would still be in shorts pants and flip flops.





In this shot it looks like a close up of the first going up a trail in Tucson





So as you can see long before this awesome site was a round I was in a Bronco wheeling the heck out of it.

Well Time to pack some more boxes, Did Anybody hit the trail this weekend? We had a club run in Cottonwood

ran a moderate to difficult trail called Smiley Rock. Thats for another day Gotta run.

A little departure from the norm for my posts
3 clips from the trail today
This trail, called 2 Leaf, is about 2 miles of obstacle after obstacle, I chose 3 to post.
My GoPro died about 1/2 way so I don't yet have a few of the real tough obstacles but there are cell phone videos I should have soon

Please enjoy my wife's screams as much as I do!

Good Morning it is,

I remembered to turn on the coffee pot last night. That was a no brainer as I was up all night packing boxes.

I have seen enough "moving" boxes for now, How about seeing a "moving" Bronco in Moab? To get to this trail you drive

right past the famed Lions Back, now Closed! This is a part of the trail where I also was filming from my camera as well.

This is a good video other than its out of focus but it shows how steep this side trail was.

Here we are back on the pavement following along the mighty Colorado river, the canyon walls along the river
were undeniably some of the most spectacular pieces of art from Gods Hand, & very familiar to the
Canyon walls of Canyon De Chelly in NE Arizona close to 4 corners.

Something a little different

Lets do something a little different today.

My Bronco obsession carries over into a lot of different parts of my life. I casually collect Bronco toys. If I can't find them, I make them.

This guy is a combo of two hot wheels that I blended into one. The body is a traditional hot wheels that I painted using the actual touch up paint for my Bronco. The bottom is an Expedition pull back racer. I think it turned out pretty cool. Yes I know the bumper is too far out, but its cast metal so it will have to do.


I have the usual selection of Bronco Hot wheels that have come out over the years. The black one on the left I have had since I was a little kid.


This one is kinda rare in that its still in its original packaging



This is my latest project. Its hard finding time to work on it. We have been too busy with all the work we are doing on the real one. It should make a good winter project.



The plan is to mount it on an Axial SCX10 platform. I need to shorten the wheelbase. I have also not decided if I will keep the "stock" look or go for a more accurate replica of my truck with the custom bumpers etc


The real one is always the most fun tho!!!
