Couple extra pics i took earlier:



I masked off & sprayed the rocker where it always gets beat up from climbing in/out



...and i got my RedHead installed




Took it out for a test drive earlier. As youd expect, the RedHead box is awesome, steering is great now. The steering wheel is crooked tho, so ill have to adjust that tomorrow.

As for the interior.....its pretty nice! The combo of Heat & Noise Reducer/BedLiner works great; if its any louder than it was with the full interior installed, i cant really tell Really impressed with this stuff, especially the HNR. My 88 bronco had rhino-liner sprayed in the interior, and i remember thinking it was louder than with the full interior, but this really does seem to me to be damn near the same noise level as the full stock interior.





If the pics are weird, reload your browser, i added some pics in the middle and had to rename a couple files. It all correct, trust me

It was really surprising too, as I've had some pretty low mileage

Its awesome. With the whole front-end rebuilt a year-ish ago, plus this new box, it handles amazing.
Actually, the old box was apparently worn enough that now the wheel is crooked Gonna go out later and center it up.

The redhead on the diesel is still doing great too. Ill probably end up getting a third from them for the big one once its closer to being done.



ive got a few more things im working on for this one right now, should be done in ~ a week i think.

I had this really neat noise under load (thinking going up hill), and then a rumble going down the other side of the hill (which sounded like it was coming from the rear axle). So I split the tcase open to inspect:


the arm for the oil pump has worn a pretty deep groove into the tcase housing. it makes this cool (not really) rattly noise under load which sounds like bad bearings.


Long story short, I stripped her clean


bought a bearing kit & a pump kit off ebay just in case. I changed all the bearings. Didn't really need the pump kit, but I used it anyway cuz I was already in there. Then welded a tab to the original arm, so it cant rattle around in there anymore


That's pretty much it. I suppose I coudve taken more pics, but allfordman already has an awesome thread on how to rebuild the BW1356, located here.

Needless to say, the tcase is nice and quiet now. Well worth tearing into now, before the pump finally failed.
I think this is the same think that going on with mine. Started the other day and has gotten worse. I have another case I can swap in.

If you grabbed the input shaft and moved it back and forth, the tcase made a noise similar to shaking a rattle can. It was pretty wild.

Open up the spare case and make sure its ok before you swap it in. Its really not that bad of a job to do. You have to glue the RTV case halves back together, which is the only reason you cant do it in an afternoon.

Yeah its started ,making a slight vibration and then i heard this clicking noise, inspected everything else and did some research and seems to be the same noise i'm hearing
This one came out of my bronco when i thought i broke it, but used one did the same thing should be ok for now. Just need to get is going, i'll crack this one open after its out.

Here we go!

I was holding off on this update until i got everything done, because it all kind of ties together. That said.....



After finshing the interior, i decided i might as well deal with the rust on the exterior. Fortunately, there really isnt much, except for this:


Fixing it required doing something that probably everyone was waiting for.....


The running boards are off



Anyways.......










At the same time, i added a set of Bushwacker's Street Flares, which are the smallest of the 3 they offer.

So the flares interfere with the rubber arches for the running boards. I dont want to hack them up (id rather keep them unmolested), so that means i need to build something else to replace them.

This is a set of steps i built for a buddy years ago, for his quad cab. He no longer has a use for them, so i got them back. They wont work for a short bronco, but the material is salvageable.


Cutting them up


Ok, now the correct length, and notches cut/ boxed to clear the front fender bolt


The rough idea, same as what everyone else does. You can see i was working on these while fixing the fender


The difference is im going to add a step on the side, to make it easier to get the little guy in/out of his car seat. Mock-up with some scrap to get ideas




Building legs




capped the ends


fleshing out the step




Legs done!




Building the steps




Rock sliders!


Mocking up the step


Drilling holes. The steps will be removable, "just in case" it ends up at Rausch


Sleeving the holes with tube, so i dont have to worry about getting water inside the rail


All done and ground flush


Steps done! Using carriage bolts, so it only takes one wrench to install/remove.

And now, the finished product:


















So this pretty much finishes off this round of mods. Couple little things id still like to do, but for now im calling it done (again lol). So now the wife can rejoice, as i guess i can start working on the laundry room now

im using the 351 PCM. Everything is re-done as if the truck came with a 351 from the factory.
