    88 Bronco 2, accessing dashboard ductwork

    So I have a friend who had some rings slide into the air vents closet to the windshield (defrost vents) of her automatic BII. I know all about 96 and up dashboards since I did a cab swap and swapped a 96 out for a 2000 dash. But know literally nothing about earlier model RBV dashes. Can I...

    Putting a 1998+ Cab on a 1993-1997 frame

    Author: legoms013 (AKA Evan) Ever wanted a newer Ranger cab, with the swing out rear doors on a twin I-beam equipped frame? After all it is much easier to swap in a solid axle on the earlier frames since they were already set up for coils than the torsion bar Rangers. Best of both worlds...

    Fluttering speedo

    So my speedo needle flutters pretty bad and varies about 10mph after I reach or surpass about 30mph. I have a 1996 4x4 drivetrain. I just got done putting a 2000 cab onto it. I retained all electrical everything from the 1996. I have checked all grounds to be on bare metal and ground straps...

    1996-->2000 MAF swap

    Someone tell me if this will work, my intuition says it should but maybe I'm wrong. My 96 4.0L has the cone style filter with a cylindrical shaped MAF housing. This uses a small white pigtail connector with 4 wires/pins. My 2000 4.0L has the square box style air filter and external MAF with a...

    SuperRunner Idler Arm Beefage

    So a while back I made a new idler arm to replace the Superlift one. The goal was to make something stronger and that could accept the LARGER and more COMMON Chevy leaf spring bushings (Like RuffStuff sells). Well I accomplished that just fine. Now the dilemma is that the bushing wear out...

    Speedometer correction devices -opinions?

    I'm looking into buying a Superlift Tru-Speed or a Jet Accu-Speed speedometer correction module. Or another brand if someone has some suggestions. Anybody have any experience with either one? Opinions? I have 4.88's and 33's, and will run 35's someday. My speedo reads between 80 and 85 when...

    1-Piece Driveline Slip Joint

    If I wanted to move my axle back an inch to help clear the fenders....will the 1-piece driveline I've swapped in still have enough travel on the slip joint? Or will it be to short. Just by visual inspection it looks like at static ride height that the slip joint is 60% ish collapsed. Just...

    4.56 gears vs. 4.88 gears for 33's

    Cost wise its slightly cheaper to go with 4.88's for my D35 and ford 8.8. My thinking is that I have it all apart, and only want to re-gear once. I do alot of driving on the highway, but wouldn't mind if I had to drive slower. I know 4.56's are slightly deeper than what a 33'' tire desires...

    Modding/Dropping Centerlink Pivot Points

    How much should I drop my centerlink? 2" is what 4x4 Junkie suggests, and what I was going to do originally. But it looks like I could go 2.5", or even 3". Is that asking too much of the Superlift idler arm? Eventually the Superlift bushings will get replaced with a stiffer compound bushing or...

    Backspacing for 33x10.5 tire?

    Don't want to keep the stock wheels, so what backspacing should I get for 33x10.5 tires? Same as stock (4.5" right?), 4.25", 4.00" or 3.75"? I wouldn't mind if the track width was a hair wider than it is now (31x10.5 on 15x7 stock wheel). Going with Procomp 15x7 or 15x8 98 series black...

    Dana 35 Axle beam Pivot Bushings

    I need to replace the rubber bushings on my passenger side beam, winching sideways the other day caused the pivot bolt to shear through the side of it. Question being, what is better? I could get replacement ones with the steel sleeve (rubber, like OEM) for the same price as James Duff's...

    Freeze plug Replacement

    I've come to find out that my "headgasket" leak is actually a freeze plug that is weeping. Its the farthest one forward on the passenger side. How hard are they to replace? It looks hard. And I suppose I should replace all of them since they all might be marginal? Maybe a motor swap should be...
