Nothing is 100% for certain, just relaying my experience. I would still freak out, just like you did.

@1clean5.8 what gear oil are you running? Might I suggest the RedLine Heavy Shockproof oil. I run it in 75w90, but it cushions like a 250 weight oil, with very high clinging properties.

It definitely made a difference when the detroit locker re-engages. Can still feel it, but not as bad. I only used one quart, with the rest being Lucas HD oil. A full diff of it would surely make a noticeable improvement.

How old is your son? You let him drive the Bronco around on the farm?

He's 13, and he's been driving on our property for a few years (and honestly he's better than my daughter, who's 21).

I do feel fortunate to have a place where he can do that. Growing up in the city is such a different lifestyle, and spending weekends out on a farm & doing all the cool things that farmboys do has been a blessing. It's funny how things we take for granted (like just driving down a gravel road, or running a tractor across a field) are HUGE things to a young boy!

I drove down county roads at 12-13 years old. Its nothing uncommon here in the country. Here, if you're lucky enough to own 40 acres, you could get a farm permit at 14, to drive to school, work, and the farm store. I think its 15 now.

I learned to drive on a go kart and a JD gator, along with a 99 Superduty. Got my bronco at 14 years old in 2002, and haven't looked back

Love the triple blue, part of what sold it to me. Even tho its wheeled pretty hard I try to keep it reasonably clean.

@jcarr

Don't feel bad about letting her sit... my 78 f150 has ya beat.





Hasn't driven in 16 years. Had the top third of an 80ft cottonwood fall on it. Had a Superduty slide into the side in an ice storm, followed by my mom's explorer into the side of the Superduty, pinning them all against another cottonwood. The axles are rusted solid, and it's been towed with us from two houses. It's also got Flintstone brakes.

Some day it'll get fixed up, but for now it's just sitting next to the shop growing lichens

@95 Bronco Wyatt

What mounts did you use for that LED light bar across the windshield?

You know I never got a part# from Assault for these, my wife bought the light bar and brackets from one of our friends that owns a speed shop locally. I asked him and he said it was for an F-150, originally I had them inverted from how you see now and it put the bar much higher but was too flimsy and had a lot of side to side movement. I flipped them to lower it and it is very rigid now plus still fits in the garage if a air down. So answer is I don't know the part# but the brackets are from Assault LED lighting and it took about 4 hours with a hammer and vice to get them this way.

So You know for sure that you drove your Bronco 20 years ago? I read through your earlier posts but don't remember if you said you had or not. Either way that's is a great find, extra special if you had gotten to drive it years ago.

Yep, I did. It wasn't my first assigned vehicle, but one that I drove later (about a year & a half after I first started). I kept a logbook of each day at work with my assigned area, vehicle driven each night, and any activity. It's pretty cool to know that I was in this vehicle on such-&-such date, at a particular area, arrested X-many people, etc. Fortunately, I still have the logbook, all my maps, spare forms, etc. :)

That is awesome that you have the logbook. I just referred a guy from Facebook to this site that bought an old Border Patrol Bronco. Said it was from San Diego.

Yep, they did a great job, especially with the faded background photos. I was really happy how it turned out, and yes, they sent me several copies. I'll cut a few up & use it on a display board. It's really cool to see your ride in print!
