Also finished hooking up the electrical for my trans fan so it can be driven. I still need to wire in a switch to manually turn them off for water crossings, but I can at least test it on the street for now. I typically do not play in water anyways, so not a big deal right now. All the AN lines made for nice leak free at start up.


That's the way I just bled the system on my '95 after replacing the steering box and Pitman arm. I'm still using the old p/s pump (already have a saginaw swap with new pump ready to go - going to tackle that when I strip down the top half of the engine to go through everything) and it's QUIETER than it was before. Not to mention it didn't take long at all.

I am leaning that way too, the others are free though...
What I like most on the PRP's is I can change out the material for something better suited to a off road truck. The fake suede on those others likely would not hold up very well.
Currently have a set of 3A racing seats, that in all honesty have held up great considering what I have done with them.

I got a really good deal on these when the local PepBoys went out of business several years ago ($115 for the set, new in box), could not pass them up. Even though yes they are cheap seats. They are why my bronco is black with yellow accents today. Anyways looking to get into a "good" seat as the truck is more pre-runnerish now then it ever has been, also the vinyl gets old in the summer.
Likely to also get new set of PRP harnesses as well, since my Simpson are now out of date.


The power steering in my Bronco is now also the best it has ever been from following those directions.

Swapped back to the dune shoes. Hit the wheels with some of this cleaner
https://www.jaxwax.com/collections/w...eaner-16-ounce
It works fantastic, Everything from Jaxwax works great that I have used, Highly recommend. These where 3 years worth of gunk n mud dirty, 15 mins almost back to new

Going to re-do the other yellow bits on the body n bumper before we go up to the dunes.

Bricknose Brothers have to stick together.

Not a huge update by any means, re painted the yellow on the truck last night, much better. Both the stripes and the front bumper.

Kinda derailing my own thread, but thats ok...
Took the Mustang to Power Tour and test n Tune Last night at Lucas Oil Raceway (IRP if you from Indiana and over 20 Year old). Power Tour had lot of cool stuff. Got several passes in on my car finally. Power tour was cool, lots of cars. The F-250 pulls this combo extremely easily now, Banks headers and few other pieces really woke it up.
Also I did not mean too but, I don't always fly the flag, sometimes I drive it

New tires work fantastic. 80 degree day and high humidity ran new best in the car 11.72 @ 122, Still working out the 60ft went from 2.02's to 1.85s with the tire swap, for sure little more time to be had there. Need more "Driver Mods". Did run a .030 off the light on that pass though I also ran a pass against a Auto Hellcat and got them by a car length on the big end, was happy with that.

Back to normal Bronco stuff next week as I will be up at the dunes towards the end of the week.

Got to Mears Michigan around 1am on Thursday, drove all but 1 hour of our 6 hour trip in the rain

Got some sleep and had great day out in the sand, was 40 out when we got up at 8
Just some in general dunin' pics






All the new parts working great, trans is staying nice n cool 150 all day.
New shocks work great. Steering response is much better as is the ride. Ran 17 gallons threw it today, had to tighten a exhaust clamp that I use as a hanger mount, and tighten a spade connector going to trans fan controller. Very minor stuff 10 min worth of work

Awesome! I love riding in the sand. When I was younger (15years ago) we could ride the creek in our hometown hunting club. Super fun and the Truxus was a great tire for it. Id love to get out to the dunes in one of my rigs. Keep the pics comin!

duneland is great, if you see a red Jeep running around the dunes chances are Bill is taking your picture. He got a few of the 78, these are my favorite from the bunch.


Pic of pic, so the quality is not 100% but that is ok

Edit, I had wrong place, duneland is who did these pictures.

Topless and Doorless with minimal tube doors

Went to local cruise spot last night as such.
Also Wednesday of this week we will be in the dunes again, going to dig out the go-pro and see if it still works.

Posted some pics here of the latest SL trip. Was good time
https://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum...ml#post7231514

Truck is working great, ready for more power now. Springs finally broke in a bit and its working great out in the sand. Pulled 64mph in top off 3rd in 4lo this time out, in the sand. Nothing quite like highway speeds on sand
Even grabbed the attention of a few Ford engineers that happened to be up there with couple of raptors and a ranger full of Ford Performance parts on it.

Sand wheeling is very unique. Takes its own special set of techniques and if you really want to have fun its own unique setup. Mine is likely more setup for this then anything else, which is kind of silly being where I am in the state of Indiana, but at the same time oh well.
