    410Fortune 1988 Ford Bronco II Eddie Bauer 4x4

    Do you think the dash out of a Bronco II or Ranger like yours would fit in a 98 Explorer/Mountaineer? I realize the windshield to dash might not be the best but I would be okay with that. I figure with all the times you have taken and put your stuff back together you might know. I sure like...

    Keep us updated on the 203/205 doubler. I would like to see how this works out.

    Betty's "I want to be a mule" progress log thread

    So jealous of your progress. I get stuff done on mine and then it just sits. I get so busy with work and home improvement stuff that I just don't have the energy sometimes. One of these days we need a good Kansas gathering.

    Moab 2018 Dates June 1 - 3

    Agh... Looks like we are out. I have to many projects going (Work and home) and just can't get my Mountaineer ready in time. That and I found out some frustrating news on the trailer I bought. It has some title issues that I need to work through. Hopefully next year I can make it again.

    Water pump bolts

    Good info here. I am struggling with one stud right now. I have drilled into the top of the water pump and have squirted into that. Once I did that I have attempted to loosen/tighten the bolt and have been getting rusty pb-blaster in my hole. However it's still stuck and I am just waiting...

    Moab 2018 Dates June 1 - 3

    I will still be there. I plan on running easy/sight-seeing type of stuff. I may have an aggressive looking rig but it's probably not quite dialed in and this will be that trip.

    1997 Ford Explorer - V8 - 5.0 - AWD

    Great read on the Water pump. I plan to pull mine in the garage next weekend to start that. If only it would be warmer on the weekends!

    PLAN B Build

    I wish there was a nice way to "un-bolt" the entire front clip. Inner fenders and all. It just would make life so much easier at times.

    SOA: Don't lose your third shock & track bars!!! ***PICS***

    I threw my 3rd shock out as soon as I brought mine home. Eventually the 8.8 will be gone too.

    Betty's "I want to be a mule" progress log thread

    I plan to cut my rockers off here soon like @Brian1 did. If you would like them you could have them! I feel they might have a bit of rust hiding inside though.

    Rear main seal on 5.0

    Oh fun! Well this is an after-moab deal. It's just going to mark it's spot. It does get nasty breathing all that oil being baked off the exhaust pipes down there. LOL

    Rear main seal on 5.0

    Is there a good write up on this? I can find them for the 4.0 but not the 5.0. Also since I have never dealt with an automatic transmission before when I drop that what is the procedure? Is it like a manual will the torque converter be on the back of the motor or stay with the trans? This is...

    Adventure Camping build

    If when you get that 205 up in there be sure to take some pics of how you fit it. I probably will go with a 4406 at first with mine just cause it has been done but I am sure I will want some extra gearing that the 205/doublers can offer later

    Having had both, I do like the V8 4-door for the older kids in the back. They kinda like it better too.

    Moab 2018 Dates June 1 - 3

    I am a pain in the butt here, but due to work and trying to get some dates locked up I am hoping we get this nailed down soon. June 1-3 is looking like its the slow winner so far. That works with me. :)

    Very nice! I will have to check those out. Are the bolts/screws included with them?

    The Black Hole

    I like that way of thinking. I too do that at times. It's easier to get it done first then show it off later.

    Show off your LIFTED 2nd GEN

    Just a torsion twist and some shackles for now. The future holds more but gathering parts. It will need some good amount of trimming to work the way I want. Those are 36x13.50x 17.

    Completed Project Brian1's Twin Trail Build (Lift, Gears, TTB Mods, Bumpers, Sliders, Cage & More!)

    Got it, don't want to derail Brian's thread any further here. However good info! I will check all those areas out and probably spray them with something. Just today they were spraying salt everywhere cause there is a 10% chance of snow. However I don't really plan to drive this rig around daily.

    Got some well used tires to mount up on it. Needs a bit of trimming. Also the water pump/gasket went out so that needs to be done here soon. My oldest step daughter was driving it all around for the past few months as she didn't have a ride. Now I have it back and am working through some of...

    Completed Project Brian1's Twin Trail Build (Lift, Gears, TTB Mods, Bumpers, Sliders, Cage & More!)

    Did you ever cut the front of the rear wheel wells out? How did you manage that part since the door is so close? Also did you ever put the front inner fenders back in?

    Bkennedy's SAS and Rebuild Thread

    I guess I meant using the mesh tape and bedliner underneath the headliner material where you would never see it. I am glad that you got it though!

    Bkennedy's SAS and Rebuild Thread

    What about a strange repair to it? Use something like mesh tape for drywall with something like that cheapo bedliner in a spray can that they sell at home depot? Together I would think that you could "glue" up the cracks and give the headliner a coating of a rubber like substance that would...

    1998-2001 Mountaineer Inadequate Roof Rack Fix

    I never made it to the yard today. Ended up doing some framing in my basement instead. Half inside work that way. It's just plain hot! My Mounty didn't come with anything up top except the bolts sticking through.

    I will be looking at a yard this weekend for some stuff. Last time I was there they had a mounty, I will have to see what they got this time.
