ok, went to look at a bronco, deffinatley buying it prolly next week

i kno its an 86 Bronco XLT with a auto (c6?) and a 6 inch lift

it has an exhaust leak and a brake line leak
brake lines ill have a shop do but the exhaust i think is at the headers
which ill install new gaskets and header bolts,
what size are the header bolts?
where can i buy a good off road front bumper and winch at a good price
and with the 6 inch i should have no problems running 35's right, it has 33*12.5 road tires on it now... good for the beach, not for mud

and how much work is involved in dropping the pan on the transmission without removing the engine or the exhaust from the truck

the trans pan should be no problem at all, just remove the skid plate (if it has one) and you have full access to it.

ok, think it may have a slight leak, noticed a little oil on the exhaust at the cross over pipe

this what i know about the truck
has a 6 inch lift kit
long tube headers
really nice interior (nothing special, xlt, but in good shape)
351 HO motor, said it had a holley but i didnt pull the air cleaner to see
dual exhaust, since it has a cross over pipe i assume its a y with it splitting again, didnt look that closely
it has rust around the wheel wells just behind one of the front wheels (no real surprises there)
has an exhaust leak and brake line leak

for 750...good deal?

I'm pretty sure the header bolts are 3/8-16x1.
