Set up a gantry with rubber tires today to put another motor in the 1993 since the engine hoist and plywood doesn’t work well on gravel driveway, then it rains ...alot
This would definitely be a woods truck if I owned it. I found myself wishing my truck was not in as good of shape as it is now while I was in Moab. I wanted to get down and dirty with alot of the other guys but was afraid to mess up my nice fenders and such. A truck like this would be a great woods truck....i try to follow this thread so when i post i am not just posting about myself. i'm not very good at it...
i bought another bronco yesterday. the plan is to do some work to it and sell it for a profit. we'll see. i've lovingly named it
"silver". which is a reference to the lone ranger's horse - silver.
i've considered making a thread for it as i go through, as much for my reference as anyone's. we'll see on that, too.
on the way home
the FS pictures. i almost didn't even ask because of the passenger wheel well. however, that's easily the worst part. the interior is really nice as far as stock interiors go. and the wheel well really does betray the rest of the vehicle. the frame looks as good as, if not better than, my bronco which was in AZ for most of its life until i brought it to north texas.

and the wheel well
Take a big screwdriver or thin-ish prybar and put it in the axles u-joint. Push the axle outward and you’ll be able to install the snap rings.was buttoning up my ball joint repair and i cannot get that c washer or snap ring to seat flush on the end of the axle spline...any suggestions.
Thanks, but I see where its supposed to go just can't get it to sit flush so the hub assembly slides into place, if that makes sense.Take a big screwdriver or thin-ish prybar and put it in the axles u-joint. Push the axle outward and you’ll be able to install the snap rings.
just trying to hustle any way i can. i don't know that i'll be able to do it more than once seeing how it took me nearly 2 months to find this one.FSB flipper now huh? Hope it plays and pays out well for ya bud. :thumbup
i plan to fix the fender as best i can. if i can't weld in a replacement panel, then..."i know a guy" who can. but this is perfect for mixed use, for sure.This would definitely be a woods truck if I owned it.

Yo CT,Watching the tracking for delivery of my replacement hub for the '95. 2 day shipping (extra) from Rock Auto was STILL $85 cheaper than ordering it from NAPA. Hope to get both races installed, rotor pressed on, inner bearing and seal installed and that way everything is ready for install and hopefully start on it Wednesday after work. Not being able to fit the lifted 95 in my shop is a PAIN. I'm seriously considering going to the junkyard or checking CL or Facebook marketplace and buying some TINY tires and rims that will bolt on so I can fit it in the shop.
Problem is getting those small casters / wheels over the lip from the black top to the concrete in my shop. I thought about picking up wheel dollies at Harbor Freight, I've used them before to move a project vehicle up against the wall for the room to work on something else.Yo CT,
