Iím pretty sure its stock leaf packs in the back with an aluminum block from the 4Ē kit. How do you like the deavers all around? I will be going with Deaver leafs like you did.

I like them. They are a little soft like the coils are though, so if you tow or haul heavy loads a lot, prepare for a little squat. I went out and bought 650 lbs of fire pit bricks the other day and it squatted about 2 or 3Ē, but it looked just below level so it wasnít too bad. There a little bit of rake built in with the leafs.

Life of a FSB owner...

Yesterday Saturday.. drove the bronco to Walmart to choose a new grill/smoker. They have exactly what I want and better yet, I can buy one that's already assembled! (great cuz I already have lot's of to-work around the house) I should've purchased and picked it up on the spot, but didn't. Drove back home first, I'll talk to the wife and then go back to buy. Of course later that day drove the BKO and would not go into any gear. Dropped the pan... of course the tranny filter popped out. Now I'm considering buying the retaining clip which could take my bronco out of commission until I order one. I doubt the local parts store has it... I can still buy the grill but it I will have to assemble it cuz my wife's SUV won't fit an assemble one.

Went to the boneyard yesterday and picked up the missing blind nuts for my air filter box. There was a rear ended F250 just sitting there waiting for me. Laying inside the box was the missing 90* rubber elbow needed to connect the PVC hose too! I'd post pics but I still haven't figured out how to get em off my Moto G7. Doing the Google search directions don't work. Maybe they think I have Windows 10. I have windows 7. Now there's a thought!

OK Joe, I emailed a pic and downloaded it. My last phone was a Samsung and downloading pics was a breeze. This phone. You plug it into the USB port, the computer chimes some crap and nothing pops up on the screen. It just starts charging. You go thru the computer directory and find Moto G7 plugged in. Right click on that and it says you can download pics. You left click on that and it tells you there are no pictures to download! There is some shit with a "Google Cloud" involved here. When I got into the pics in the camera there are about 15 of em. But they are floating around in outer space somewhere.

Yep thatís true, and a cheap easy fix - canít really complain too much. This piece looks to be a band-aid fix from the PO. Itís thin wall and not very rigid. Iíll pick up one foot of 5/8 hose for $2 and top off the coolant and should be good to go. I actually smelled it before I saw the steam.

Ordered an extended length braided Bronco flex brake hose for the rear in order to confirm the hardlines fittings on my dually axle will bolt on to the flex hose that's on the Bronco now.

CONFIRMED!


Some observations:
1) On the dually axle; the flex brake hose points rearward from the brake hardline 'block'.

Whereas the flex brake hose on the Bronco faces forward.

2) The brake hardline fitting is larger on the driver side than on the passenger side.

Thus causes #1.

If I could just figure out how to mount a bucket and a backhoe to that old Ford, I'd have it all.

What's the sign on the door? Looks like a pic of a dog and maybe yuppers?
