    I am wondering if any one had thought of taking the 90's front clip and puting on the older B2s

    If I remember right, the body lines won't match up. I have a '92 Ex parts truck and I think I looked once to see if the front clip would work on my '86 B2. I think I read that the 1st gen Ex front clip is the same as the clip on the later B2s (89 and 90?), but when I looked, it was clear that the body lines were different on the fenders and into the doors. You should be able to easily see the difference just by looking at pictures of each.

    An 89-90 B2 front clip will work on a 1st gen B2 fine. You'll have to change out the rad/core support. Everythine else will bolt on. Bumbers will need some bracket fabrication.

    The only EX parts that you could use are the grill, lights, hood and bumper with a bit of bracket fab.

    yes, the easiest way to swap the front is -

    you do need the core support. The inner fenders are attached to the core and spot welded to the firewall. It is easier to just drill the spot welds on the firewall and replace the entire front end. It can be done, but it does take some time - if you look over at Pirate4x4 WhiteRhino has done the swap

    I found out my '84 is a XL thru the VIN. There are no "XL" marking on it. It has the lift up rear glass and the swinging tire carrier. How rare are they?

    I'm looking at buying an 85 Bronco, that I think came with a 351, but has been fitted with an injected 5.0. All the engines mentioned in this thread are V6s, i take it, so did you guys get a V8 option in Bronco? In Oz, V8 was the ONLY option, AFAIK.

    Here's a pic of the one I'm looking at:

    You're looking at a full size Bronco, derived from the F150. The only thing in common with a Bronco II is the name.

    you are looking at a FULL SIZE bronco, this thread is for Bronco II's which are Ranger based vehicles.

    Thanks for that - we never got the BII in Oz, hence my ignorance. It just shows that you learn something new every day!
