Normally I would search, but I'm in the middle of nowhere and I see a strap hanging under the passenger side seat. Where does it attach to the frame? Everything seems to be working fine.

Can this wait until I find a dry garage?

I believe that strap should screw into the seat bracket somewhere.

I crawled under and I looks like the clip broke, probably from heavy ice today, or just age. Everything seems to be working just fine at this point. I'll see if Napa has one this weekend?

I misunderstood, is this strap underneath your rig? do you have a picture of it? trying to think what might be under the passenger side.

Correct, it is underneath the cab. The strap connects the cab to the frame. It has come offthe frame

yo,
For posterity;
Engine Block pic in a 94 5.8; "...The black battery wire goes from the front bolt of the engine mount (on the block) to this tab & up to the battery post, where a smaller black wire goes to the core support, providing a continuous ground path between the engine, frame, battery, & body.
On older trucks, the engine terminal goes to a starter bolt..."

Frame & Battery pic in a 93; "...With the wheelwell gone, it's easy to inspect the frame ground, just inboard of the spring tower on top of the frame rail. The battery ground cable is stripped ~3/4" and a tab is soldered on so it can be bolted to the frame..."

With the wheelwell gone, it's easy to inspect the frame ground, just inboard of the spring tower on top of the frame rail. The battery ground cable is stripped ~3/4" and a tab is soldered on so it can be bolted to the frame. The thumbnail below is a 4.9L frame ground:

Thank you for your help. I happen to see another Bronco, same year or so and looked at it. The frame end has a clip (mines broken) and clips on the radius arm bracket. Everything is working fine, so hopefully I'm good until the part comes in. Thanks again

Apparently its a radio bond strap. Sounds like it's not really needed. Still, I may check the JY for one as I don't see them anywhere new at this point.
