    Bronco ii 4.0 tach

    I recently picked up an 88 bronco ii that the P.O. swapped a 4.0 into. It was a pretty clean swap and everything is working like it should, except for the tach. It reads about 1300 at idle. It is idling at a normal spot it's just the tach is off. The tach rises and falls with the engine just...

    Sp I picked up a 66-77 bronco dana 30 for $free.99 and it's got most of the goodies there. Radius arms, coils, steering... but it needs an axle shaft and everything from the steering knuckles out. My biggest question is can I use xj d30 parts and slap them on my EB d30? This will be going under...

The one that came in the kit rear f150/bronco on the side so I was skeptical. But being just ready to wheel I slapped...

    auto to manual hub question

    Rhino lined floor plan questions

    Hey, guys, so ive been doing some pipe dreaming. Who here has rhino lined the entire floor plan of their daily driver? Is there a big difference in noise? How does it fair in the winter, does it make it a lot colder in the cab now? And also how much does it cost for front to back? If youve got...

    99 5.0 questions

    Hey, Gurus, I might have an opportunity to pick up a 99 ex with a 5.0 in it for cheap. Are these 5.0s roller motors? and is this a pretty straight foward(for the most part) swap into a first gen explorer? And what manual trans/t-case would you recommend for the swap? Thanks in advance.

    So I recently joined the explorer fan club and bought my first x 3 months ago. First off its a 92, xl, 4.0 ohv, 5 speed, 4 door and 4x4. This truck has the option of power nothing and I love it. When I bought it the ladies said that the tires needed replaced and they just didn't have the time or...
