    No-start after fuel filter replacement

    Hey ya'll. Mods, feel free to move this to a different forum if this isn't correct. 1989 Bronco II 2.9L Was replacing my brake lines when I happened to break one of the fuel connectors at the fuel filter. So I did not relieve the pressure the correct way. Swapped the filter out, put a new...

    Question for the TTB Gurus!

    I installed leveling coils. '89 BII, Skyjacker 132. And I netted about 1.5" of lift. I took it to my mechanic who is pretty well versed in ttb suspensions with 2.5 & 3.5 degree camber bushings. He says it isn't enough to align it yet and suggested drop brackets. I feel if I have to install drop...

    00+ to 93-99 taillight conversion

    Hi all. I've always perferred the tri-color amber/red/white tails to the newer red/white ones. My question is wiring. The gen 3s use a 2 wire turn and a 3 wire stop/tail. While the new ones use a 3 wire for all 3 functions. If i split my stop/turn wire, ill feed 2 bulbs at once - not what i...

    Gen2 to Gen1 headlight swap

    Has anybody tried fitting 5x7 (H6054) sealed beams in place of the stock Gen 2 headlights? There are some pretty nice 5x7 LED lamps that I've been thinking about.

    upgraded pc wont start

    Ok, so as the title implies, I upgraded my computer today, and now it won't fire up. I installed a 2nd GPU (MSI HD5770), and swapped the stock cpu cooler and fan for a big ass cooler master 212 with 2 120mm fans. I've looked back inside the case to see if I forgot to plug any wires in. My...

    Thinkin about buying a BII

    As the thread title states, I'm looking at buying a Bronco II. Specifically, a 1990 that my neighbor is selling for $2000. He *says* he put $1000 into it in the past year, with new brakes and other things. I've lived near it for the past year, never seen the damn thing move. And other long...

    Tire Storage

    Did a quick search and didn't see anything. What is the proper way to store tires from dry rot and fatigue? Let the air out? Fully inflated? Covered? I was intending to keep my BFG ATs stored in an unheated garage for ~6 months, while I figure my vehicles out. Thoughts?

    Clutch issues

    00 Ranger 3.0 4x4 5spd 115K For a while now I've had an intermittent shifting issue. Sometimes it'll shift 'like buttah' and others, like just now actually, I have to double-clutch, and it'll 'sorta' go into gear easily. Doesn't matter engine temp/ ambient temp/ whatever variable is out...

    locker and friction modifier

    Quick question. Long story short, my mechanic refused to fill my differential without friction modifier, even though I have a lock-right, and not a limited slip. Is this in any way detrimental?

    Roush mirrors

    http://www.hillbankmotorsports.com/1998-2005-ranger/exterior-and-body-kits-1-2-3/signal-mirror-kit-2001-2005-ranger.html Does anyone know any reason why these couldn't be used in a 2000 ranger with manual mirrors? The glass is the same, the only problem I could see is routing the wiring.

    28 to 31 swap

    would it be possible to convert a 28 spline 8.8 to a 31 spline? i know i would need axle shafts, a carrier, and bearings, anything else? i know there was a difference in width in the earlier 4.0 axles, but what about a late model one? or is it a bad idea? thanks in advance :icon_twisted:
