Nothing yet. Im going to take to my buddies shop monday and put it on the alignment rack to set the toe,center the steering wheel and see where the caster is at now. If I can get away with just changing the C-bushings to raise the pinion angle Ill do that and possibly another Tom Woods shaft with two double cardons. If this dont work Ill be forced to convert my high pinion d44 to fit.

Couple new updates.

I built a swing out tire carrier on the James Duff rear bumper and it turned out awesome. I bought the parts from EMS OffRoad and have less than $200 in all the parts and materials.

Drilled a hole thru both tubes of the bumper then welded the spindle in good.


Here is a vid of the build.
And finished.



I also finally got around to gutting the doors and swapped in the full size glass and manual regulators. Put all new dew wipes and felts in too. Turned out great!

So I took the factory window switch plate thingy and changed it up to hold just one mustang door lock switch. Turned out great! Cant believe the difference the new door panels made for the interior.





Coming from the original cat hair and piss covered panels to the new stuff is amazing.

Short update....

I been driving the truck all over and loving it. Been working out all the bugs. Still havent taken it off roading yet but Im close!

I was getting some surging and stalling in gear when it was up to temp and I found the motor was running a little lean since I added the better flowing Explorer intakes and 65mm throttle body. The speed density ecm just cant compensate for the added air flow so I put on a Aeromotive adjustable fuel regulator and bumped pressure up 4psi and that made all the difference. Truck runs like a brand new truck now,zero issues. And to my delight even on these 90-100 degree days I havent seen the motor temps go higher than 190.

I was getting a lot of noise from the rear axle and it was chattering real bad in turns. Wasnt expecting that out of a Detroit Locker. Well turns out something was broken inside the diff so I just swapped it out for a full DTS spool I had and now the truck drives smooth and quiet! Can hardly even tell it has a spool except in my driveway when making super tight turns.

I did some cutting on the fenders and took it back to our clubs RTI ramp to check clearance and she all good now. I am super happy with the flex this thing has!



I also finished the front bumper and Im real happy with it.



So I got a bunch of other details knocked out too. The stereo system is all done and sounds great! Love cruising around with the tunes kicking! Got my speedo back from Speedhut and works perfectly. All my lights are hooked up now. I put a rubber mat in rear and mounted a fire extinguisher to tire carrier so anyone can get to it fast.


I have about two weeks left to get all the other bugs worked out and then its off to Silver Lake Dunes for Bronco Takeover!

So I finally got around to getting the front axle upgraded.


I pulled the knuckles,brakes and RCV shafts from my full width d44 in my truggy.


Then I gutted the Bronco axle and started swapping parts.

And I threw the Aussie locker in.

I bought a new shorter EB d44 passenger inner shaft from RCV and the driver side I cut .600 off the end.


I bought a new set of Warn Premium hubs and the RCV 30 spline adapter gears. I had the diff cover powder coated and threw it all back together.



So truck was all set at this point and I loaded it up for Silver Lake Bronco Takeover.

Other than breaking these Warn hubs everytime I go out we been having a blast with it! Truck does everything I want and does sit well so far.

We spent a weekend at Rocks N Valleys with a nice group including a few other Bronco2's. My GF Lisa did most of the driving and did great for just learning to drive it.



And just this past weekend we ran out to Rouch OffRoad to check it out for the first time. Had a fun day and we got to try out our newest toy.

Soooo an awful lot has happened since my last post here .......lets just say alot has happened recently!

I ended up ordering a new F250



Spent a weekend in Grayling with the Glass City Crawlers for Snow Way Dude event..vid on my channel.




Then about a month ago I decided to make some serious changes before a planned trip to Wellsville Ohio.

I concerted the motor over to Microsquirt efi so I can tune it myself now. Full vid on my channel.

And upgraded the exterior just a tad.....Full vid on my channel.






Then we headed down to Wellsville
