Ghosteh More poser shots. Can't help it; I just love the way this all came together! Other than the internal screens that make the cage, it's exactly as it was when it was in-service. (Ok, it's not nearly as muddy)

Spares (if carried) were just loose on the floor in the caged back area, with arrestees. More often, except for the very remote areas patrolled, they weren't carried. If you needed a spare, you'd call for the transport van to bring you one.

CrazyBRONCOguy Nice RNR trailer....

The bronco is cool, keep up the good build. Even if its just putting it back how you had it when it was in use. Killer story behind this.

Ghosteh Halfway into a 10-hour trip, disaster struck! We were sidelined (on a Saturday evening) with a plugged up cat. The only option was to haul it home.
Now I'm looking for exhaust options (keeping it as close to stock as possible) and hope to get it on the road again very soon.




All of you on the Facebook Bronco groups have already seen the posts. I was "spotted" multiple times on the drive. lol!

All finished at the install shop!

Yes, single outlet. I have the 5.0L. I'll give them a call tomorrow & see if they have one. Thanks for the tip!

Some lessons are learned the hard way.

Keep an eye out for me, ok?

There's a couple yards up here that have a bunch of 87-96 ford trucks/broncos. Usually an airbox is $35-45, I doubt shipping would be that bad, I'll be at the yards monday, and can take a look.

Just in case: Can you get a P/N off it and/or maybe a couple other pics (outlet/mounting/etc) so I can be looking for the right piece?

Help! WTB - airbox lid

This is what happens on a '96 when you fill the airbox with starting fluid & it backfires.
Why didn't it start in the first place? Stupid me - I was washing under the hood & got moisture in the distributor cap. Don't worry, all is well now... except for this:

Ranger0297 Man where in Mississippi did you score that from?

DogparkBronco I love it, San Diego is about 45miles from me. I remember those Broncos well. Badass then and now. Great job.
