Pretty important mod here

Lighting was originally for the back of your tv. Picked it because it is powered by usb and I have 2 unused USB ports behind the dash for the radio. So now I can see at night instead of it being a black hole inside the cab.

Looking good! What shifter do you have? We have a Hurst shifter with a Duffy arm. Lol.

I believe it is just the stock T18 shifter bent to work with the bronco.

Put some weathertech floor mats in. They seem to fit best and have the best trim lines to work around the rollcage.



Used a weathertech boot tray for the rear may cause I didn't want two small mats and all the generic were way too wide to even trim. This measures 36" x 16" which is almost perfect.

Got tired of waiting for the back ordered bronco script column cover to show up so I went ahead and got the black billet one.

Went out for a drive since it was nice out. I ended up going out to my work and steam washed the underside to get some of the grime out of there.

While I was there went and played in the undeveloped part. It just crawls along.

I love this thing. And the orange looks good.

I don't think I'm going to put rockers on it. I thought about swapping tires from my ranger but I'm pretty sure they have developed flat spots from sitting so long. It smooths out on the highway but gets pretty bouncy at 40-45. I'm going to keep driving it to see if they will go away but not sure if it will. Maybe when it's 100+ degrees outside.

I'm thinking about going with mtz's if I buy tires for it.

Thanks. I'm ready for the new bumpers to get here to really finish off the look. It will be 6 weeks next Monday so should be getting close.

I'm surprised you still have the Ranger with this addition.

Not worth it to sell. If I could actually get some money for it maybe but no need to just give it away especially when I can store it at work out of the way.

Yeah, and you have the bronco to wheel while you get off your ass and install the supercharger on the ranger.
