Hello Everyone,

I new this isn't the proper place to list this, if anyone needs anything PM me.
Well my '85 Bronco is done. My crankpulley went, trashing the crank. After alot of pondering we decided it was time to pull the plug.:sad: I going to salvage alot of recent parts that were put on. Then the truck is off to the bone yard or if someone is looking for a parts truck.

Parts being pulled off:

1. 4- 32/11.50/15 BFG all terrains, these are nearly new, a little over a month old. They have approximately 2500 miles on them.
2. Stone crusher steering system- this will work on the Dana 28 or 35. Has been on my truck since July. About 3000 miles on it. No offroad time.
3. Rear driveshaft- The shaft I have has double cardan joints at both ends. It was just rebuilt in May of 2010. Approximately 4000 miles on it.
4. Had just put a duraspark ignition in my truck in April. I have a Holley 350 2 barrel and a duraspark distributor.

If there is anything else anyone is looking for let me know. The trans is an A4LD, just had a complete overhaul in January 2010. The motor is the 2.8L, this is a Jasper motor, installed about 4 years ago and has about 40,000 miles on it. Unfortunately it needs a new crank now so isn't really worth R & R ing. The dana 28 works great, just had new u-joints put in it and rotors, calipers, and pads are a year old. The 7.5 rear, no problems, pulls strong, drums, cylinders, shoes, and hardware, has a chrome diff cover. Have extended braided steel brake lines, 4" rough country lift, shocks are shot though. Set of Edelbrock headers, installed with the new motor 4 years ago.

Anyway...alot of parts, the first four I'm pulling this Monday. Anything else at request otherwise to the salvage yard.
PM me and throw me an offer if there is something needed.

Thanks

also, have 4 American Racing AR23 aluminum rims. Was going to leave them and throw on junk 15" tires to get it to the yard.

So you are selling this stuff? You should put this in the for sale section and add prices.

Make me an offer. I figure If I sell the 4 parts listed and send the truck for scrap it would be worth 12-15 hundred. Make me an offer. I open to anything. The truck frame is solid, body has normal rust.

I'll keep looking/thinking. It's not looking good right now though. The closest place I can think to put it is my Uncle's farm in Punxy. That's about 1.5 trips across the state for me by the time it's all said and done. A lot of time and money I shouldn't be spending while trying to save for a house. :(

How much do you want for the stone crusher steering set up? By rights this should be in the for sale forum with prices & a location.

Hey guys, I threw the lisitng up last night just to give heads up. I'm going to list things in the for sale section, just didn't have time last night.
Truck is located near Milford, PA. That is in Northeastern Pa, where New Jersey, New York and PA come together.
The truck has a 4" lift, with Rear springs.
The headers are still on the truck, I haven't dissassembled anything yet.

I haven't taken it out, if you you are up to taking it out you can have it for a $100. It is a 4" kit with rear springs. Could use new shocks though. I'll let the whole truck go, tires rims, lift. stone crusher steering, complete for $1200.00 I'm running into a problem with not having a lot of time to part it out. So if it is worth it to anyone to use what they need and part the rest.
