Very Nice.

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 this thing.....

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...

Here is my yesterday's work.....

This is my $20 parts lot from the local junk yard: (the clutch/brake pedal assembly was a PITA to get out...i spend 1.5 hours on it where i only spend .5 hours on the other parts)







Then I installed most of the parts....the only picture i took was of the antenna...and then i broke it off inside the base by tightening it too tight....anyone know how to get that out?

Before:




After:






Then I mounted my antenna for the CB.......

you wont need a PCM for the trans swap as the A4LD or C5 are not computer controlled

i dought it. if it has an A4LD then the PCM may look at the TPS for torque converter clutch lock up.

but un plugging the trans is not going to turn on a check engine light.

i personally would leave it auto. but i am a "panzy" so yeah.

Update:

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!
