Well it has been a while since I posted anything about my bronco. Haven't worked on it much because of so much going on. But I have worked on it some so here are some pics.

First off, here is what was on my bronco when I bought it.



Not really safety first huh. About 5 1/2 stacked up.

So to solve that problem.





No turning back now. Getting me some F-250 hangers Saturday.

My axle will do for now, till the D60 goes in. Trac-Loc 3.55, Completely Rebuilt.



Getting close for the axle to go in.



My 351W. Had a 302 H.O. missing on 2 cyls. Pulled it for this one. 2000 miles on the rebuild, Performer cam, lifters, Intake, Timing Gears, Electric Fuel Pump. Thanks to a fellow FSB'er Hunter234



Going to pull the PS Pump off and get the original bracket for the AC & PS pump, Modify it for OBA since my AC don't work.

My Carb that goes on it.



My NP205 that I rebuilt courtesy of ford_perf.



My New seats going in my bronco. Came from a 88 Econoline Van.
Kind of a comparison of what I had the drivers seat and the new seat.



I am going to pull the carpet. I picked up some vynal or rubber flooring that usually comes in it if you don't get carpet. I picked it up from gatorguy. Going in after I pull everything out of the interior.

And last but not least. My new to me Euro's. Thanks to CasterTroy.



Sorry to waste your time, but I am excited. Thanks to everyone that has helped me get parts and everything together. Enough for now. More to come later. Thanks for looking.

I believe it is a little tall. I am going to cut down the legs and let the bottom hang down off the hump in the back floorboard. If there is not enough room I will remove the bottom so it won't come up when it lays down. I can make it fit.

Slowly but it will get there. I just enjoy working on it. I have never been this deep in a vehicle before I got my bronco. I had a 84 F150 Stepside. I loved it. Did the regular tune ups, oil and other minor mechanical stuff. But nothing as extensive as this. All thanks to my wife's family and FSB. I have pulled 3 motors in 2 years and am learning more as I go. I have more confidence in starting something now that I have the help if I get hung up. Thanks Joe for FSB.com.

I wanted to run some sort of light like that as well because mine is white (all white hence my handle)
& I like the way they blend....
Yours are ok I've seen worse..
the ones you got is a style I've considered but What I'm really wanting to do but havenot seen is all clear lense's with LED's inside?
I think that with LED's they might not look pink...
Raf had your standered red bulb under completely clear lense's & during the day they looked pink.

I have noticed the new lexus suv's have clear lense from the fatory, With LED's & they work great.
Its not a priority with everthing else i'm doing to the bronco now.....
but maybe some one likie you might light to try it if you have the time..

I would like some clear lenses but hearsay around here is they are illegal because people put in red and white bulbs and they looked pink. I would think they would be legal with leds. Leds are freaking bright. I was going to put some in my euros just because.

I believe it will fit. I pulled the inner rear panels out. The armrest molded in to it kept the seat from sitting in there. Now I have to look at when it is laid out if it will clear my fenders, and the back of my front seat.

Very nice very nice. ANd best of all your doing it yourself. Labor of love is always the best way in my book. Nice job. (Ps i'd paint the pulleys and aceesories on the front of the motor if i's you). Post pics when finished.

Not a bad idea. Since I already have access to it. :thumbup

My wife wants to put one of those van seat/beds in the back of our Bronco. You've obviously got to cut a lot of the bracketry off of the bottom to make it usable with the top on; I'd love to see some pics of how you get that set up.

No problem. :thumbup I will get pics of everything. It will take a lot of cutting just don't want to cut to much so when it lays down the back rest doesn't hit the fender wells, or the workings underneath don'thave room to move. I will take a little doing but I will make it work. :beer

Looking good. :thumbup
If that passenger doesn't fold before it flips, be careful you don't hit the windshield. I found out the hard way with some BII seats. :brownbag

Did you bust is out? You can push the lever on the side and the seat leans back or forward quite a bit. I haven't looked very close at it yet but I think when I fold it it will go between the dash and the windshield. Thanks for the help I will check in to it. Also any other ideas or problems you see in store. Address them and I will check them out. Saves headaches in the long run with "Proof Reading" from others. :beer

It stayed intact, but has nice crack. It was kind of humurous. We were wheeling, I was under the truck and I heard a collective "Oh SHIT!" My wife was getting the kids out and cracked the windshield with the seat.
