nice! dude i bought a 84 Bronco II xlt a month or soo ago. It has the 2.8 carb but with a manual tranny and tcase. I got it for $700, and it runs good needs the carb rebuilt. IM rebuildin mine to be more of a daily driver.
Nice BII like the deal ya made with the fiance lol.
i think i got the screw on that deal....
if anyone has access to any BII's, this is what I am looking for:
- Tan drivers door panel (for power locks and windows)
- Tan passanger door panel (for power locks and windows)
- Passanger side kick panel
- Trim that goes around gauges/radio/HVAC
- clutch/brake pedal assembly
- manual transmission and manual transfer case floor plate
- manual transmission and manual transfer case shift boot & trim rings
- FM146 or M50D-R1 transmission (prefered is the M50D-R1)
- clutch master cylinder
- clutch hydraulic line
- BW1350 or BW1354 manual transfer case w/ linkage
- 4" lift kit (doesn't matter what brand)
- PCM for manual 2.9
Also had something for the first gen b2's My dads friend had a 86 b2 choclate brown with brown interior. I grew up with that thing and riding in it when we went camping when I was a child. To bad hes one of those people who do not take care of their vehicles at all and basically it was trashed at the end.
Those BII's are strong though, my cousin and I had gotten one a couple years ago and wheeled with it, it was an 83 4spd manual t-case, only way we could start it was with a screw driver :) This is what our little bII offroad machine looked like haha. It didn't have as much potential as yours. http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n...f/broncoII.jpg
You need a new rear wiper arm and the actual mount for the spare also. The dual arms on the wiper should be parallel to each other; you might be able to straighten the little arm though. The four empty holes in the tire rack are a dead give away that the mounting plate with the three wheel studs is missing.
Good overall find, I got mine for $100 but I had to do A LOT of body work. 3 tubs of Bondo Hair, two tubs of filler and three tubes of glaze(and it still looks like crap)
I also still need to do a manual transfer case swap. You should get the manual hubs too, the auto ones are prone to failure.
I love those trucks... It was my first car.. or truck... and then i got another one that caught fire and melted the dash and all the wiring.. i did a complete swap of wiring interior.. engine and all the hose's... off my rotted one and then lost interest.. The only thing that was wrong with it was the dist was off 2 teeth soo it wouldent start,... SUCKS!!! ITs mainly cuz my dad got my a 5.0 mustang.. now i wish i had that truck.. i still see it around my town.. that ***** wouldbe on 33 m/t's with lockers and a safari rack

i changed the fuel filter today after work.....the one that was in it was the original fuel filter...it was blacker than black....i spend over an hour and 5 gallons of $3.50 a gallon gas trying to get it off (it is the canister type), then I realized an easier way that would have taken me about 5 minutes.....
tomorrow is a junk yard run for manual transmission parts and interior parts.....if i can score a good deal on a complete truck (roughly $400) i will come home with a complete parts BII...
That's how I got my 88 eddie baurer; it was a parts truck for my 86. It was in better condition so I sold the 86 and kept this one...
The fuel filter is a lot easier to replace if you remove the bolt first, then drop the filter. Disconnect the lines and switch quick to the new filter. Then bolt it back up. I learned the hard way too; I have to replace the one in my 88 so I'll be doing it again next weekend.
Did you figure out an easier and less messy way? I would love to not have to wear the gasoline smell for several days...
Ordered tires & wheels this morning for the BII....
- Tire Rack had a KILLER deal on 31x10.50x15 BFG A/T's that I couldn't pass up...they had 3 of the QR speed rated versions for $75 each.....I got them and then 2 of the S speed rated BFG A/T's for $129 each.....The different speed rating didn't mean anything to me since i will never have the Bronco anywhere near those speeds...so i got 5 tires for $587.47 shipped...
- I got 5 Cragar Soft 8 Series 397 wheels, Cragar rear closed center caps, Cragar open front center caps, and 20 chrome lug nuts for $285.65 shipped from Jegs
All parts should be here by Wednesday....can't wait!
