    Fuel pumps keep running

    Ok folks time for my issues again... I tried to search for my old post about this problem but couldn't find it. Problem is, when the key is off the fuel pump will run on it's own. Ive been told to look for a bad ground or a shorted wire but I haven't found one yet. I've also had to replace the...

    Best way to manage 12V accessories

    Broncos have had trouble with corrosion for years, therefore you should run your own power for all accessories. This can be as simple or elaborate as you want, I've done the elaborate type and I have around 50 hours building it. First is the primary power wire going from the battery into a...

    hardtop hoist idea

    I saw an idea once a while back... It consisted of a boat trailer hand crank with 2 cables attached to it. those cables went to a 2x4 each, 2x4s were long enough to span the top. Next there were 2 each straps per 2x4 with flat type hooks on the ends that would slide under the top at each corner...

    Ok so this is what Beast is doing now... Took Beast out for a drive day before yesterday (first time Beast has been out since November) and all seemed ok. Battery was a little week from sitting but no big deal. Yesterday I tried to start Beast so I could move it out of the way and the battery...

After a closer inspection, I found that the frame has also rotted in 2 spots around the radius arm...
