    Its not "that" bad! I drove one for a while before I converted it to power. Look into the fliped 79 f150 box, its one of the best cheep ps options for EB's

    Look up 4x4x2 box or "rockcrawler" box where they take the guts from a ranger/bronco/fullsize TTB steering box and use them to reverse the older fullsize bronco/f150 box for the early broncos. I was thinking about doing this on the exploder so I could mount the box to the outside of the frame and get more room for my 5.0L.Then I dont have to deal with a remote oil filter or finding another box to drill and tap my lines in a different spot to clear the adapter...

    Not a big fan of the detroit locker, have Andy show you the pile of broken ones he has. I am impressed with the yukon grizzly, one of the few yukon products I do like. Chris and I had good luck with them and Andy has yet to destroy his....

    I need to get some taller springs for the front, Once I got the spring over done on the rear and got the 33's on all four corners the started measuring there was a 2" diffrence front to rear. Then I need to get shocks for the front and rear, driveshafts lengthed, a little fender trimming and fender flares and mount a winch.

    I got most of the hardparts I need for Fuel injection conversion on the 302.

    I have been thinking of selling my axles, tires and doubler out of the BroncoII

    to upgrade to 1ton axles and some PBR's in 40" range for the EB:thumbsup:
