Your probably talking about the fan stand. Itís sitting up against the spare tire drying out the bronco in the garage. I had to drive close to another hour and rain was flying in the back.

Replaced the junk U joint at my 9Ē with a Spicer 5-7438x. Cut out the parking brake cable that got half torn out wheeling. Tightened up my header pipes. Rubbed my awesome bumpy plastic paint.....again.

Calibrated my wideband O2, pulled the inspection cover off the transmission, fixed a vacuum leak on the pcv valve hose, checked and topped off all fluids..fixing to head out on a 400mi trip.

What did you do to your bronco today?

Picked up a few D-ring shackles from HF the other day with a coupon - $7 each.


Also finally got around to mounting and hooking up the new winch. It was a little bit of a PITA because the relay box on top wouldnít just mount above the reel due the cables coming out of the back of it interfering with the grille, and I wasnít about to sawzall my grille to make room for a bunch of damn wires. So I took apart the relay box and removed the block and mounted it to the bumper, left the remote plug in the box and mounted the box directly to the bumper beside the winch. Funny thing was that the two bolts that once held the old power steering cooling coil to the cross member fit perfectly into the holes I drilled and tapped to mount the relay block.









Definitely looks better with that empty winch spot filled up! (and you can see a little of my power steering spills on the driveway...oops!)

Leaving the block exposed is going to eventually give you some problems, or at least... it has under the flatbed of my F250. I've had to remove, clean and re-assemble that block in the past because it's completely exposed on the smaller Badland winches. I wish mine had a box like yours did.

Relay block, pulled after it stopped working from corrosion due to exposure.


Relay block completely disassembled to clean all contacts and replace corroded connections and screws.


Relay box re-installed to show exposed location, under the flatbed and tucked into a c-channel. Exposure is to the rear of the vehicle.

I did consider that. I will probably move the relay block to a more protected location at some point. Now that I think of it, I might be able to move it to a location under the hood near the battery and use the short cables for the battery and the long ones to go all the way down to the winch. Iím planning also to move the remote plug to a permanent spot on the valance under a headlight, and eventually to a double throw rocker switch on the dash.

Right now, Iím just scrambling, trying to get a bunch of things done that Iíve been putting off to get this rig ready for a Bronco event in a few weeks on the sand dunes over Lake Michigan.

Got the axle back together Friday night and have been driving the BKO all weekend. It's been a few weeks. I missed it.

When I started buttoning up the diff I decided that I wanted to try a Lube Locker gasket. I've heard nothing but good things about them and, while I'm a firm believer in "The Right Stuff" for sealing covers on, I grew weary of prying off the cover and having to re-prep the gasket surfaces every time I want inside my diff. Scrapers take too long and wire wheels get debris inside the housing no matter how much you try to cover the gears/bearings.

The only place in town that had Lubelockers in stock was about 40 miles away. The drive sucked, but this place was a damn serious outfit. It's called Super Duty Headquarters (SDHQ). It was like a wheeling candy store. Bumpers, recovery gear, air tanks, wheels, shocks, etc. Tons of pro-comp stuff for Baja rigs and such. They even had a gigantic "fabrication" section with laser-cut goodies, gussets, brackets, heims, full selection of grade 8 harware... I mean, you name it. Over all, some of the baddest gear I've seen in one of the cleanest, most well-organized stores you could ask for. This place was no joke and I will absolutely be back. They blow away all the other wheeling shops in town.

Just wish they were closer...

Installed a avenger vent line and a vent whistle in my 4160 to see if it cures it off angle woes.



Not a word BigBlue!

The 2100 works great off road but I can feel a significant drop in power. Also having issues with the choke sticking open and not closing at start up.

Local Bumper to Bumper store made me a new AC high-side hose. That is the last piece that needed to be replaced in the AC system. Now it is ready for an evacuation to see if it will hold now.... old hose was leaking through the rubber.... then a good charge of R134. Won’t get to do that until next Monday at the earliest.

Finally got the engine bay all cleaned up after all the work . New Edelbrock 4bbl carb, Edelbrock air cleaner, Edelbrock valve cover breather (gotta have the whole set ), new vacuum lines, new ignition system, new distributor, new starter, new starter solenoid, new smog pump, new belts, new NGK copper core plugs and new wires. Obviously not all today, but the clean up was. First pic (left) is when she came home, second pic (right) was after most of the resto, bottom pic is how she sits today after cleaning up all the unnecessary vacuum lines and wire looming all done. She getting there

Well, you at least got through. Don't fret, if the window's down, you can access the nuts holding the window regulator tracks to the glass; remove them, then push the studs out of the holes and move the glass out of the way. Once done, there's the three bolts holding the motor to the regulator. Swap out the motor, lube the regulator pivots, including in the tracks, reattach the glass, lube the felts with silicone spray, and reassemble.

I’m going to try and paint my 95 Eddie Bauer. I pulled the interior out and installed kill Matt. Then I put in a new carpet. Of course then the ugly paint started to bug me… So I purchased Krylon farm and implement paint. I’m going to try my hand at spray painting.

Try Imgur it's simple and free.

When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

Also, CAB Unlimited Hub Centric Spacer, this keeps the weight of the vehicle from riding strictly on the wheel studs
