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...

Bought some 33's for Explorer tonight, now I just need to do a spring over conversion in the back and buy shocks and I think I am done.

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:
