    New to Bronco II, lots of questions

    I replaced the voltage regulator in mine and it actually ran a little smoother. Didn't chug as much while accelerating and kinda got rid of the twitching/jerking it'd do at idle

    New Headlights, Still Too Dim

    Alright guys, the voltage regulator has been replaced, but it made things worse. I didn't find much at all about how to replace one, so I'll put it out there for someone else. 1.) Remove both bolts holding the alternator to the bracket, one up top and a long, backwards bolt at the bottom (head...

    The lenses aren't even a year old yet, so they're crystal clear

    New Headlights, Still Too Dim

    Makes sense to me😅 How do you adjust a belt? When I took off my power steering pump, there was a bolt i could turn to move the whole assembly left or right to loosen or tighten the belt. Is it the same thing for everything else that's belt driven on these things? How tight should it be?

    New Headlights, Still Too Dim

    Not sure if resurrecting a thread is a bad thing or not, but I figured I'd add some things. I got my alternator tested at O'Reilly, and the voltage regulator kept failing, which I think is what could be causing my issues. It's an internal voltage regulator, right? I ordered the internal one for...

    Side Mouldings?

    I watched a couple guys do some custom bondo/fiberglass work, so maybe I could try that if nothing else. Won't be until way later, though. What about those roof spoilers that pop up every so often? Are those rare too? I couldn't even find a picture of one for a B2, but here's one on a school bus

    Lowering Springs on a 4x4?

    Where can I get more info on the ball joint thing? Don't think I've ever heard of it. The t-case with a diff sounds cool, but I know that my junkyard doesn't have one, so might be a while before I even see one. Why should look for one, though?

    I only bought the headlight housings, I guess I should have specified that. Everything else is factory, including the type of bulb. Probably not the factory bulb in there, but they're not HIDs and hey're not projectors. Is it even possible to install them upside down?

    New Headlights, Still Too Dim

    Sometimes I notice the gauge bouncing around. Sometimes it's just fine, the needle sits right above half while driving and while idling. Other times it's fine while driving, but dips below half at idle. When it goes below half, all of my lights get a little dimmer. When I give it some gas, they...

    Lowering Springs on a 4x4?

    It's going to be a pavement princess for sure. I'm just trying to get that protouring/80s NASCAR stance. I was thinking about cutting the bumpstops, too. I also want to be able to drive this thing daily and as comfortably as possible while still achieving my goal. It took me a minute to...

    New Headlights, Still Too Dim

    I bought new headlights from Eagle Eye for my Bronco 2, and when I first put them in and tried them, they obviously needed to be adjusted. However, they are now adjusted all the way up and all the way out, and they still kinda suck. With my low beams on, I can probably see 30ish feet ahead of...

    Lowering Springs on a 4x4?

    My goal for my truck is for it to be an OEM+, lowered, and for it to still have 4WD. I know there probably isn't a whole lot of room between the TTB and the bumpstops, but wouldn't the added stiffness of the springs help protect my front end from constant abuse?

    Bronco 2 Rear Hatch Swap

    Not for sure doing this yet, but I'm seriously considering it. I really want a rear wiper for my Bronco 2, and the junkyard in my town has one with everything I think I need. I don't think I really need help with this, but I guess I'm just looking to see how much work this would take, what the...

    Side Mouldings?

    Not sure on the correct terminology for these, but I'm talking about the side skirt/fiberglass mudflap things that the Bronco 2 XLS came with. Are these sold anywhere online? I want a set of them, but I'm thinking I'll probably have to cut off that chunk of the body to get it.
