When I picked up Ol' Faithful from the shop, the owner mentioned the vent hose on the TTB was broken, so I put a new piece of 12mm polyurethane tubing on it and ran it up into the motor bay. Need to do the rear too.

I didn't get anything but the lower and it was mostly loose. I guess someone needed the upper. The 96' I saw had not been touched. I'll get the upper and the heads if no one else has.

Thanks biggum! Itís been a blast this far.

My tire cover came in today, but the piping was tan instead of black :/ I originally ordered from their website and it is a $10 option. I emailed sparecover and am waiting for a response. It is a very nice quality cover and fits great (didnít notice piping until I installed it).

I ordered a cover, last night. Had been wondering where I might find one so thanks, YD.

I've never seen a Bronco that I didn't like.

Nice looking cover you've got there!

I feel like a little kid because I happened across a soft topper for sale on Craigslist. Guy I bought it from got it when he bought his bronco 3 1/2 years ago. Said he'd never installed it and finally decided he should just sell this. He looked up bronco soft tops to find the prices. He found the rampage so he thought it was a $500 top, and priced it accordingly. So, I got it at a steal because this would be $910 if I bought new.

And, the guy was nice enough to hold it for me for 2 days so I could drive 4 1/2 hours from Dallas to Tulsa to pick it up. He said his wife's phone had been blowing up for this thing. But they held it because I contacted them first.

Just got back. 11 hours total. Took my wife and son with me. An afternoon road trip just for fun.

FWIW, another "THANKS" for @joedirt216
I got mine a few days ago and I'm just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit more.
Went with the black/white, for obvious reasons.

After having a spare tire pop, sitting on the rear rack in the sun... I figure it's a solid investment that looks cool too.
Pics to come after install... of course.

I failed smog a few weeks ago.. failing EVAP test. I bought a smoke tester for leaks.. found a leak at the fuel tank vent tube. I just plugged it up and it Passed . Here in California I feel like I'm on borrowed time every time I get it to pass. More than half the time it fails.

Added a usb port and aux input to my new stereo system and wired in a power port on my Expedition console. Gotta have an extra power plug for the Moab trip ( CB ).

Swapped out a 95 amp alternator for a 130 amp upgrade.

Cleaned her up a bit, getting ready for the trip out west....

Reattached the passenger armrest but now it gets tight spots... I think I might be missing some hardware... is there more than just the bolt and the washer that clips onto it?

Iirc my 89 EB seats had a nylon spacer (about as thick as a garden hose gasket) between the armrest and seat. So seat, nylon washer, armrest, clip washer, bolt. The center of the nylon washer was wide enough for the shoulder of the armrest bolt to pass through. Itís purpose seems to be to provide dry lubrication at the hinge. I made one from a nylon washer kit from the zone. Had to bore the center out a little with a step bit and clean up with razor blade.

One side of my 94 had a cable attached that I think lifted the arm rest when the seat was folded forwards. But were digging ten years into my memory and I dont know which side it was.
