today i started dismanteling the 78 f150 to get it ready for the junk yard, im pulling the axles, and the motor trnas, and case.

since all my tools are at one house, and the truck is at anouther, it has made this more difficult.

it is alos in dirt which blows even more. im doing it myself, since my buddy got called into work

i got the rear out the front is almost out. im having some problems but it is mostly ok,

im just sore from dragging a 9" out on a board, and crawling around in the dirt underneathe this thing

nothing the captain cant cure

well i was really have reliablity problems with my bronco, problems with the computer various wires ect ect. i wasnt able to keep it out of the shop for more that 2 1/2 weeks. when its electrical, i dont mess with it.

so i came to that unfortunate fork in the road, get a DD and sell the bronco, or somehow come up with a butt load of cash and keep it as my DD and project.

well i quess my ripe old mature age of 25 beat me to it, and i traded the bronco staright up for a 2000 explorer sport. not the best, but i drive 95 miles one way to work, i need reliablity, and low mileage helps too, the exploder only turned 40k the other week.

so i came across a 78 f150 for 100 bucks, back when i had my bronco, mainly for the dana 44. well i got it, and afterwards i thought i would build this up, but it needs alot of work, the body is trashed. so i have decided to part it out. my buddy wants to put the axles under his grand cherokee so he can run a bigger lift than he has now. and i was gonna keep the rest of the drivetrain.

so thats where i am now, got a DD that im not really fond of. and looking for anouther project. im might get a 78f250, or else im back to getting a 80-86 bronco with a 351
