I'm interested in uncluttering and cleaning up the engine bay on my bronco in the near future as a little project. Hiding and re routing wires and other tubes and maybe some emissions deletes to clean things up. Has anyone ever done this with their bronco? I thought i remembered seeing pictures of someone doing this but I couldnt find them. If anyone has any info or suggestions on what would be involved in doing something like this chime in :beer

That looks awesome! I would love to do that with my Inline
i feel as if it would make it a lot easier to clean after wheeling and such.

im surprised no one has responded with comments on emissions deletes, i figured that was pretty popular

Deleting the emissions is not as popular here as other places as it actually hurts fuel mileage. And alot of people need said emissions equipment to pass inspection.

I think it looked great, but I have so much crap going in my bronco it would take alot of planning and work to make it look that clean. I will be happy if my OBA doesn't clutter things up to much

I'll take a picture of mine when I get it back together (right now changing out a rusty core support) but it's cleaned up considerably. No EGR, TAD, TAB, CANP, EVAP canister, ABS module, PCV plumbing, Air pump, Jack and Jack handle (useless with 35's anyways), Mustang distributor boot, the wiring harness is stripped of all unused wires and connectors, and the intake and throttle body have all the unused vacuum and coolant lines removed and capped off.

I thought of wire-tucking the whole deal and welding flat panels to the inside of the fenders similar to the ones 5-0 resto makes for the stangs, but obviously I would have to custom make them myself. smooth inner fenders

Whenever I pop the hood on a stock truck I wonder how I ever used to work on it before lol
