Well it has begun

'93 Bronco XLT, full load.
351W, auto
12 disc stacker, 200watt amp, Sirius satellite radio
Just did a 4" lift with arms, receiver hitch, Lund Moon visor & water pump in the last 2 weekends.

Now need tires, then a rear cage & exhaust.

The way I got it.

Well had a bad vibration, even after the wheel alignment, so back into the shop today. Took out the 2" truck blocks & added a 1" via 1 leaf spring & a cut down over load spring. Now less axle rap , sits level, & no more vibration. Also did u-joints, what a pain!

it was likely the u-joint angle what was causing the vibration, shimming the pinion on the rear diff to have a higher angle (1-2*) might have cured it.

Yep that was it. Didn't like the ass end higher than the front. Sits nice now, just need big tires now, & a nude model to show it off.:p

Tryin to get a winch off my aunt, an old Warn.

I'll build a better bumper then. This one is a little butch. I needed it because the stock one didn't fit with the 35's. Built it in 5 hrs & 12 beers ,2 days before going to PG moose hunting so didn't have a lot of time to do a nice job.

Got it a WheelsTruck Parts in Westbank. Front springs, arms & brackets, pitman, complete rear springs & u-bolts, Fr & Rr sway bars. No front shocks, nor sway bar drop bracket . Paid $650 out the door.

I would buy a Rancho & not the BDS as the Rancho drop brackets are better (more bolts) & they have adjustable cam style bolts for alignment.

Still need 2 more stock '80s Bronco roll bars

When coming from Penticton, turn right at Bylands Nursery, & right onto Stevens Rd, its across the road from Pick N Pull .
I saw another F150 with a lift in it, they are slow to dismantle so it's prob still there.

Dont you mean turn left when coming from penticton, if you go right it takes you through MT Boucherie.
