Just placed an order for the correct switch off Ebay. I will drop it in myself when it gets here. Just took it to the dealer so the recall can be marked as complete. I would hate for an insurance claim to be denied because the recall wasn't done.

Got my new switch in and changed the old one out today. Pulled off all that ugly fuse harness. Looks a lot better now with the proper fix in place.

I also put in my new headlight housings today. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/g...1010/overview/

They are definitely brighter and they are nice and shiny!

Got the window inside the tailgate to get it open to replace a tail light. While we were there:
Cleaned taillight lenses
Upgraded taillights to LED
Discovered 3rd brake light housing is trashed
New tailgate window runs and end seals
Aligned tailgate
Looked at the horror that was the hacked up harness
Window now works, not diving into the wiring mess right now
Started to replace the left side exhaust gasket

I have a love/hate relationship with those. They look nice, and it would be nice to have new clean panels, but i hate that they used fabric instead of vinyl, and i hate that they didnt get the door panel pockets right. The 87-91 panels are wrong too. Whats wrong with these manufacturers?! Are they blind?!

Well, my 78 started running like crap when I got back from wheeling at K2 - the 78 was my tow rig, I wheeled my early Bronco. It was missing and backfired a couple times. No power pulling the early loaded on a trailer going uphill. But I made it home. That was on Feb 2. I was frustrated and just parked it until today. I thought I'd look at it and I found a spark plug wire off! Put it back on a test drove it - runs great again! Easiest fix in all the years I've owned it!

Lesson - always take a look.

Glad it was an easy fix!

In the middle of July I change the water pump on my 92. Drove it down to Phoenix to see how it would handle the heat with the new water pump (bad move)! On the way back home my radiator cracked just below the inlet hose. It sprayed antifreeze all over the engine compartment causing my serpentine belt to come off and there goes power steering.

This Saturday I pulled out the alternator the fan clutch, fan shroud and the radiator.

Replaced with a Champion three core radiator with a leadfoot racing shroud and dual fans. Upper and lower radiator hoses and clamps.



Alternator was replaced with a one wire large case 200 amp from left eye blind. A little modification to the bracket was required. The upper mount on the original alternator was threaded, and the large case was not so additional hardware was needed.


This Saturday I will fill the coolant system and bleed it, along with connecting the new alternator and installing a dual battery tray.

Sitting in my shop is a set of disk breaks for the rear 8.8 differential. I will be waiting for chrome molly axles and a truss for the top of the differential. I doubt this will be completed prior to The Bronco Invasion.

Yeah pig pen this here's the rubber duck. There's a road block up on the cloverleaf and them bears is wall to wall...

Got my Cobra 29 nightwatch mounted up last night while I'm waiting on engine parts. This is the cat's meow of CB radios, with built in tuner, night mode, PA, dynamike, etc. Itll be hooked up to a 102" whip on a 6" spring.

Its bolted directly to the Shelf-it

@S00TLYFE I got the brake conversion from James Duff. It is a complete kit no getting this used part from a junkyard.
