Checked the front and rear brakes, front pads are good for another 3-4 months probably, and rear are near new looking. Only problem was rear passenger side wheel cylinder was leaking.

I called my wife and told her to start it. Since I have been deployed for 7 months now, it hardly ever gets started or driven. She didn't start it at all for the first six months and when I was home for R&R in Dec, it started right up and drove well. I was pleased.

I'm never down.....I'm either up or I'm getting up!

Thank you for your service!

  5. New valve cover gasket
  6. New exhaust manifold gasket
  7. Reattached sway bar
  8. New donut gasket
  9. New oil pump

What did I do to my bronco today? Put it on craigslist so I can buy one with less problems. When there are 50 small things and 2 or 3 big ones and the trucks spent more time parked than driven it's time to cut losses and get one that's less boned.
