Fired it up this morning, I've been building my '89 since 2013. It's got an electrical issue, needs new rear end, (possibly front). And a **** ton of body work.
Your lucky. I been at one of mine off and on since about 2006 and FINALLY getting ready to drive it.

Nothing yet. I haven,t made it out to their yet. I have the gas line to hook up and radio. Clean some parts and tools out of it . Get some gas in it and re-new the tags. Then HOPEFULLY drive it. FINALLY got all the lights working on it. I quite trying to get the back up lights working with the original wiring. So I just ran a wire from the lights to the switch on the side of the transmission and a hot wire from the I-SWITCH the the reverse switch and solved the problem . All that work to please my friend--after a few cuss words of course. HAHA If you,ve ever been around a couple of combat veterans--one church goer and the other one isn,t--you,ll know. haha Have a great and safe day folks.

I drove mine. Always fun since it is usually in the garage except for vacations anymore.

recently recalibrated the shift firmness. Love the new holes in the separator place. 1-2 still a little firm. 2-3 and 3-4 smooth but quick.
adjusting shift firmness is a crap shoot if anyone has ever done it but well worth the effort.

Also had a mickey thompson wheel crack and leak air right after vacation. Apparently it is common. Welded it up, appears to be holding.

Where I am at most OBS trucks are rust buckets, always get lots of looks when we are out and about.

Parked right next to a brand new Bronco at Texas roadhouse last night. I should have taken pics. It was all black, 4 door, with top off. Sharp looking, but still looked small next to mine. Owner was sitting on the bench in front of it. Talked to him for a bit. They are nice. I will admit that. He absolutely loves it. It is his first bronco.
he is a 4 door jeep convert. He said it is live going from a chevette to a Cadillac. I told him I am on like my 10th bronco so I am used to driving cadillacs. LOL
Well they do ride smooth. I was thinking about going to maybe 3.08 gears .To help on the gas.
