Well it's been demonstrated that this board is more than happy to help out when they're needed. And as some of you have probably read, Armywifey4life has a Husband deployed in the Army, The bronco that she has been working on for him has a bad oil pump (so the shop says) and as I understand it she doesn't have the money to have it repaired or brought back to her home. I know we've got a lot of Military families and members on this board, so what'dya say we get some help her way?

This was her last post in the Oil Pump Thread:
"THEY are the hsop that helped with the lift. no its not on base im not anywhere near a base. THEY say it lost oil pressure and thats why it died and would only start up again for a sec or two. i have no disposible income as it sits now im thinking about a military grant. i dont want to do all this and then when corey gets here not have money for him to spend. plus we still have our monthly bills. THIS Fn SUCKS!!!! i dont know what to do..im loosing more and more hope by the minute. i cant get this done no way in hell! i have no knowledge i have no way to get her up here to me from st. pete. im screwed"


So how about it? I'm really far away, but I'd be willing to donate some money for gas/parts. Can anybody help her?

ya'll are so wonderful. im totally crying right now *i know its a normal chick thing to do*

my friends father who is a mechanic will do the work for me if i can find a way to get her from St. Pete to orlando area (taft to be exact) because of her size i would have to get her on a flat bed. or atleast thats what they had to put her on to take her 5 miles. :banghead then all i have to do is buy the parts...im guessing thats just the pump and 1 or 2 other things. i told my husband today and all he said was "get her fixed" its one thing after another...i have had this truck 1 month and have only driven her once and that was bringing her down here :banghead

a wheel lift truck can haul your bronco just fine, though flatbed is prefered.

Like gearhead mentioned, the part is not really the problem. Its getting the truck back down to Orlando. Where exactly is the truck? I am planning on going to Daytona this W.E.

Is she a stock Bronco or those it massive tires, lift etc.? If stock we can take the chance and get a U-Haul and say its for an explorer and we can fit that baby on the trailer....I believe the trailer is about 75 bux one way {Beats the towin bill}..

Let me know armywifey4life, I will try and help you out as much as I can.

PS My son lives in Orlando off of Curry ford....

Just talked to her in chat, she's pretty worried, seems the bronco is in St.Pete. It's got 31" tires and a 6 in lift. She's got 17 days from today to get it home.
