When I was at the dealer recently and I asked the parts manager if it was possible to obtain a build sheet for my '96 Bronco. He said he didn't think so but sometimes there is one under the back seat. I didn't find one on the bottom of the back seat but some search hits mentioned finding them above the head liner, under the passenger seat, etc. Before I rip my Bronco apart looking for it, has anyone found theirs and where?

The search hits also mentioned that it's called a 999 report and you can call Ford Customer Service at 800 392-3673 to request a new one. That's plan B.

On my '96 it was in the glove box in the little case holding the owners manual/salesmans business card/tags and warnings that arrive with the truck.
The one that comes from ford when you order one is ok, not as good as window sticker though. I ordered one even though I have original sticker.

There's one under my carpet on the right side in the back...over the years it's gotten wet and so I cant move it without ripping it, but it's there.

On mine it was under the carpet directly behind the front passenger seat. I think finding it depends on which way the sheet blew when it was tossed back there.

Take a look under the drivers side of your front seat between the seat springs and the cushion, that's where I've always found mine. if it's there, you can see it without pulling the seat.

You're probably right about their method of placement. It probably varies from one production line to another as well.

When you say it's under the carpet, do you mean one that sits on top of the base carpet or the base carpet itself? That is, did you have to remove some of the moldings to lift the carpet?

Another option is to obtain on from Marti: http://www.martiauto.com/. I saw a post somewhere that mentioned it would cost $50. I believe it's free from Ford directly.

What is so important about the build sheet?
Nothing really. I just lists what optional equipment was put on your vehicle. The original owner of mine really loaded it up so I'm curious as to what is all there.

Their main value would be when doing a restoration for resale. You can prove what what came on the car. Original parts are more valuable than ones added after manufacture. That's not to say that Bronco's are going to be bringing big bucks at a Mecum auto auction anytime soon.

Fordophile...there was only 1 production line for the Bronco, if you are referring to a production facility (aka plant).

As for calling Ford, I did such a thing once (not sure if it was the same number shown in this post) and they sent me some info, but not a build sheet.

Also, there are a number of build sheets for a given vehicle with different pieces of information on them. They get taped all over a vehicle body and chassis during assembly, and they have different pieces of information on them that help the line workers assure the right parts go on the right vehicle.

Fordophile - When I started my resto I actually found two sheets...one located underneath the carpet under the drivers seat and another in the back end underneath the carpet. For me it was sort of like finding a treasure map that has been hidden for the last 20 years! Pretty cool to see a piece of history of my truck!

I have not looked into the headliner yet...maybe I have one there too!:thumbup
