Sweet! I knew they'd be able to help you. That whole operation is a class act over there. I'm really happy it worked out for you.

I actually might take the Bronco over to those guys to see about getting a new oil pan seal put on. I don't feel like buying an engine hoist and taking it out myself right now....

Looks better without the topper. Just my opinion of course...

You don't know anybody to borrow an engine hoist from or you don't feel like doing the job right now?

I should check CL, that's a good idea. It's not an immediate need...there's a bunch of other crap I've gotta do first. Namely a new steering gear, new tires, fabricate a tailpipe....

The thing is, what I REALLY want to do is swap a 4.0 from an Explorer or Ranger in (I have no way of knowing just how long this 2.9's gonna last). But that's a job that I'd need some help with, I'm not ashamed to admit.

Heres a little snippit of why iv been so busy lately... Dressing up the Ranger to get her ready for sale....

OLD: Notice the center of the hood... the 4.0 SOHC design... the grille is still maroon... the black on the front of the hood. We used stone gard for the black then cleared over it. come to find out after the fact... STONE GARD DOSNT STICK TO FIBER GLASS!!! so it was all peeling and bubbling and was pretty much looking to much like shit. So instead of explaning all of that to a potential buyer... just fix it n be done lol.


New!!!!
all the black has a light mist of the Maroon, to give it a nice red flake shine when the sun hits it... LOOKS 4000 times better in person.


Changed out the Blue Camo Hydrographed interior pieces for the factory ones...
Old:

New.....ish... lol


painted the window sills... they were peeling bad!
I don't have a before pic but every one here knows what it looks like... lol
NEW!


I still have to repaint the front bumper. when ever we get a dry day here, then give her a good waxing again, another quick wipe down of the interior and its ready for the market!

$6000. If cash is involved... We may be able to work something out a bit cheaper.

Details are in my sig...

The only part of my signature that is not the same is, the Master Craft 285s and the Mountianeers DO NOT come with it. If someone wants them they will be extra.

I did do the Mustang rear disc break conversion to it as well.

Mileage. Just turned 123k. I drive it daily so it only goes up lol.

Gets 18mpg on average to work n back. best iv ever got was 19mpg with the topper and the truck was fully loaded. How...Why... Not real sure... That's the way the math came out at the pump lol.

I have receipts for nearly everything including oil changes.

I take care of it. regular oil changes... replace parts when they go bad... I drive it to school and back atleast 4 times a year... 545 miles one way... So unless I want to be stranded in IOWA.... I make sure everything is in good order.

Extras:
Full spare set of rims and tires with good tred
Solid pane rear window
Paint to match fiberglass topper
factory headlights
spare cv shafts
bunch of Misc parts.

im sure im forgetting something... but that's all I got off the top of my head...

----------

oh yea... I did an LED conversion and hand painted the cluster and cluster shroud...



yes I know the mileage dosnt match.... took the pics at different times.
