Installed new/used Eddie Bauer and Bronco badges, replaced the rear window top seal, and fixed a wiggly armrest.

The 302 finally gave up the ghost. The last two days have been removing and complete disassembly of the motor for the local scrap guy to come pick up. I'll slowly be preparing the 351 for removal and transplant from the '89 I just bought from a friend of mine - God I hate V8's - into my own '89. The AOD is up next for servicing, so I may just buy a built 4r70w instead. "No rest for the wicked" is right...

Opted for the low pro model to reduce drag. Itís the only right way to do open water cruising.

I drove 16mi into work in the 88 this morning. It was 42* and raining like hell. That was @ 7:30. By 9:00 the temp had dropped to below 30* and the rain was now snow! At 10:30 we closed the shop! I get out to the Bronco that I had started about 15min earlier with the defroster full tilt and hop in. There is now 6" of snow/slush on the roads. 4WD time! Did I mention the 60 + 70mph wind gusts? The longest straight stretch of the drive is 10mi long thru farm country. The wind was coming from the passenger side and had created a White out from the snow coming off the fields! Anything over 30mph was just plain stupid. You couldn't see more than 50' in front of at the good times! Did I get any pics? Hell no! I was too busy with both hands on the wheel praying that someone wouldn't come plowing into me! Me and the Bronco finally made it home unscathed. The old 88 motored right thru as usual. It's days like this I really appreciate that rig!

Yepper it was! They are saying it was a blizzard! Everything is closed and nothing is plowed and I'm debating going into work tomorrow. Not that I can't make it! This is a fast moving storm that is moving East and wreaking havoc as it goes. This season has been an expensive one for the 88. New trans in December, all new hubs, rotors, drums and brakes in January. It is times like this that reaffirm my 31 year old Bronco still can show it's stuff!

Okay, not a Bronco, but a Ranger, question: my friend Steven has a lifted 2WD Ranger (2" lift), and it appears he has an RA bushing problem. He wants to replace them, and I'm sure stock is not what he wants. I've seen in many lift threads how a "9* bushing* is used, but i'm not sure if it's used in conjunction or not with a lengthened radius arm, or even if this is needed with a 2" lift. I just need a quick primer on TIB suspension lifting (which i'm sure should be the same as lifting TTB suspension).

Sorry, but I just could not find another thread to pop this into without starting a new one. If the mods don't agree with this, I'll start a new one.

Itís probably best to start a new one in the flame free section for a better audience reach. In this thread the original question will get buried eventually by what people did to their Bronco today.

BTW: I got my personalized antique tag in today

Nope, just getting it ready for the season. Well, one of the oil tank tabs broke off along the bend so I had to pull it, brush it, weld it, paint it, reinstall it. Then it started right up.
