Okay, who’s Bronco is this???
View attachment 150763
View attachment 150764
6” lift, looked to be skyjacker radius arms, real spring lift in rear(no blocks), 4.56 gears, Detroit in the rear, either Detroit or tru-trac in the front(hard to tell through the fill plug)
Had a full set of spare shafts in the back, as well as a spare set of warn hubs
Only had time to pull the Detroit out of the rear and grab the hubs. Lady at the counter tried charging me $40 each for the hubs, so I left with just the Detroit from the 8.8. Gonna try to make it back in the morning for the front diff
Grab that bumper, if you can get it to Vegas! I need it!

Decided to take one last trip during the 40% off sale. Needed to get the transfer case adapter for the np205 to use for my doubler project. Got it. Tried to get the radius arms off that 77 d44 but I couldn't get the coil buckets loose. Damn. I did snag the Impco Model E propane vaporizer off the 77 too.

Also went with hopes of snagging that front bumper and plow mount off the 81 f150 with OBA. 14 bolts later, it was off, and I moved on to the remaining york compressor and bracket.

Impco and York



I decided for some reason to look at the door jamb sticker in that 81 and found a fairly rare beast... H62 axle code is a 9" rear 3.50 ratio LS and a front LS. This guy had a pretty bad ass truck. 300, 4 spd, 4x4, LS F/R, 9", OBA, underhood toolbox, supercab with jump seats, flatbed, and a snow plow. Had a Ranger XLT radio bezel too. I snagged the badge off that. Appears to have been a special order truck through the KC district sales office with a DSO# 53-1981



The bumper and plow mount was 30 bucks. It needs some touching up with the welder and a paint job, then itll go on my 96 f350 to compliment the ranch hand rear I have as well. The bumper itself is straight and well made.

I wish something like that would roll into a JY near me. Only seen 2 broncos in 2 years. Both trashed stockers.

Third members are $60-90 here at the yards and rear axles complete minus drums are $115. $200 for front and rear traction aids is what I'm all about lol.

If that 81 I posted above had aftermarket lockers instead of crummy factory LS, I'd have been all over that!

Today’s haul. A winch bumper, a small block 4x4 zf5, and a ttb44 3rd with 4.56 gears and a tru-trac.
I would have gotten lift springs and radius arms, but were really rusted in, and they wouldn’t let me take a grinder or torch in, cause ya know, I might just start a fire.... in 2 inches of snow....
Now I just have to find a way to explain to the wife where the Christmas money went....
Man I miss going to the junkyard every weekend and bringing treasures like this home. @BigBlue94, don’t take it for granted being “wild and free”. Once you get married and have kids, it gets a lot harder to go play in the junkyard

Looks like you dropped the zf shifter!

Sweet haul man, jealous! Yeah, not having dependents is great in some aspects.

@slimpartywagon is looking for that zf5, if you're interested in selling

Badass, I knew I could find some history on it somewhere.

Oh, and I picked up the shifter haha

I kinda have plans for the zf5, but realistically I probably will never get time to mess with it. So I’m gonna sit on it for a little bit, but it may end up for sale...

Great score on those parts!!! Small block ZF5 is HARD to find. The 3rd with a Tru-Trac diff and 4.56's along Warn winch bumper are sweet finds too. Really sad to see that Bronco parted out, but it never ceases to amaze me what people will send off to the junkyard.

Yes, but the wife has a B2, lifted and locked on 33’s, currently with 2.9 and a 5 speed. But I’ve got built 5.0 to go into it, a zf5 would be sweet behind it. I had a sbf zf5 years ago for it, but had to sell it to afford to go to Moab

Few better pics of my JY bullnose bumper. Crafted from 1/4" C-channel and 3/16" diamond plate. Well made, and prime for customizing. Since I have part of another plow, I'll see what may fit together for a cheap (er) plow setup. Maybe not. Who knows lol. Still would need a blade. Weighs about 150 pounds I'd say.



The visible welds are all pretty nice and it's not welded all back up like @BikerPepe` 's plow mount (goodfinge!!!!!)



Plenty of room for a possible winch in there too...
