And yes! We have heat. Good because it was -15 with the windchill here today.

Going to try and install some leveling springs soon and get this thing out in the woods for some photos.

Thanks for cleaning up my posts BP.

Cheers all

3G Alternator Install

Here's my spin on 3G alternator conversion.

The Alternator itself I did buy new. It's a 130 amp unit

After the normal amount of grinding on the old bracket that is required to allow for the larger 3G unit, the install was simple.




The donor vehicle for the Mega Fuse bracket : 98 Expedition. You can see it in the upper left.

A bit of cutting and grinding...


...down to a more compact size....

...with an extra fuse too.

I installed it near the old factory jack location.

New Motorcraft battery, 1 ga cable for the positive line. I ran all new ground wire a few years ago using 2/0 cable. That really woke up my Bronco, and cured a drain i had been chasing.

I was a little concerned about the hood hinge clearing, but it had plenty of room.


All finished. This upgrade, along with replacing all the ground cables made a huge difference in my Bronco's performance.

.....that was me after I had glossed my Bronco an 'Overland Vehicle' - then realized that I was competing against remco.
I never was much at marketing.

It was 2012 and for us was the FIRST big jurney on our lovely Bronco. We drove through Balkan in countries like Croatia, Montenegro, Bosna and Hercegovina or Serbia. Beautiful places for wild camping, beautiful sceneries! Bronco done it very well without any problems. We loved new accessories like sun awning, rooftop Tent etc. It was great time there and we want to definitely came back one time! For 40 days we drove there 6000 km. In this time we had LPG (propane gas) system on our engine so we usually drove on it...

Such a great time, I wish I was there in that moment again :)





Bronco saw mediterranean sea, great feeling for us!



First time on the ferry with others small european cars like tuareg :)

Sorry but I saw this and just had to say...

M.R.E.'s...

...IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER!

remco... just incase you don't know, M.R.E. stands for Meal Ready to Eat.
military style rations. great for camping... and some don't even taste that bad.
not sure if that's what she's got there... but it's what I thought when I saw it and her presentation.



Great work so far guys. Appreciate the show, the effort and a good, clean competition.

This is one onother from the first Balkan trip in 2012. This is the DURMITOR mountains in Monte negro (Crna gora). Very small (in meaning AREA) place but very unique and beutiful! If you ever make the plan to visit Europe this is great place to see!

Mmmm beans from a can..great choice! Another good option is to make a big batch of your favorite stew and "can" it in glass Mason jars. Being preserved, it lasts a long time, needs no refrigeration, and is as simple to cook as pouring it in a pot (or an old bean can lol).

On a side note, my grandma always said we had some Czech in our blood, mainly from the one time kingdom of Bohemia. Id love to visit that area, and your pics are making me jealous.

But on our expeditions with our Bronco it is not always so basic and simple with the kitchen. Most time we do little cooking camping magic

















And of course my best CHEF! :)

I have to keep reminding myself that @remco scenery is from a foreign land, its exciting to his adventure, Between him and @adrianspeed who needs to go overseas when they are both bringing their adventure here to FSB, I am curious though Remco, so far all of your adventures are to places that we see & or hear about in the states, that are in distress, at war, and well sketchy to say the least! How safe are you traveling to those countries. Keep the adventure coming I am living vicariously through your photo adventure through the European landscape.

Yes we have been in some countries, that in TV and medias seems to be very dangerous and unfriendly. But never been in real war country yet. We drove throught countries like Ukraine, Turkey (close to Syria), Gruzia, Armenia, Tajikistan, Iran...
Never had any problem. The normal people are very friendly (more then people here in Europe). Visited lot of muslims countries, where islam (shiites line) is very friendly and helpful (Iran, Azerbajdzan).

But yes, safety first. We never drove to countries where is possible to have a big trouble like Afganistan, Iraq etc. where real war is or taliban want to catch tourist and do kidnapping for ransom. Some problems may be in some african countries like Nigeria or so.
Its necessary to have lot of information of country you want to visit, before you entry it!

This is for example in Tajikistan (Wakhan corridor) on the other side of river is Afganistan)



But the people are very friendly!



More dangerous was the route sometime :)



This was in IRAN near the army base. We spoke lot of with soldiers and secrets police offieciers (often they looks like normal man, profesor of english or so:) and never had problem. But never provocated or do something wrong like takeing a photo of goverment or army buidings.



People in IRAN are for example from our view ones of the most friendly people and nation which we met on our trips!



This soldier was on the border zone and in normal life he is student of architecture. Sometimes are life difficult in these countries for young people :(

Got my 4 bolt steering box in and it works great, just in time for my Sag pump to die however.
Love how clean it looks with the new hoses and after market cooler.











About 20" of snow fell in 1 day here PA

Same here. Got about 18". My tires loved the snow though. Had zero issues pulling out of the 9" to plow and pull the chevy out. Was too cold and wet out to bring out the phone. Going to put a damper on getting my bumpers and cab visor painted and installed.

OK, we dont use our bronco only like travel machine:)
For example in winter we drive on the mountains (in our country there are beautiful hills - High Tatras) and do some skialpinismus there.... But sometimes is quite dificult on the black ice because we dont have winter tires :)






















We have lot of bears in our forests too...:)





With other hardtop here. I will say why next time :)



We love this car in any situation!!!!!

Next summer in 2013 we want to made longer trip on our Bronco. We knew it much more and made some repair so dont affraid anymore:) Plan was to get on ferry to Sardinia island and then continue in Italy to south. We visited big cities like Florencia, Venezia, Roma, Napoli and lot of small italian style villages with very narrow streets where our Bronco looks very funny:)

Anymore, that was great trip and Bronco worked all that time well! Italy and Sardinia island is peace of heaven, very beautiful place!!!!


Like before trip this time too....packing packing packing:)


First camp in Italy, what a great time with our friends!


Famous leaning Tower of Pisa.
The height of the tower is 55.86 metres (183.27 feet) from the ground on the low side and 56.67 metres (185.93 feet) on the high side. The width of the walls at the base is 2.44 m (8 ft 0.06 in). Its weight is estimated at 14,500 metric tons (16,000 short tons).
Prior to restoration work performed between 1990 and 2001, the tower leaned at an angle of 5.5 degrees, but the tower now leans at about 3.99 degrees. This means the top of the tower is displaced horizontally 3.9 metres (12 ft 10 in) from the centre :)


Then we took the ferry to Sardinia island.


Camping camping yeah :)


Lovely countryside!








Sleeping in roof top tent is great. Morning views are extremly nice!


On to TOP!




Then we take some offroad to the big mountains.




























:) this is difference between US and European cars :) :)






Stromboli VULCANO!


That was great theater!
