Glad everyone's okay, 89RanBrII. Sucks about the Bronco, though.
On another, hopefully happier note, I got the intake manifold torqued down on the 2.8 in my '84...

Man... that's a total bummer. That little truck would have been fun to have around the ranch. Again... just glad everyone is OK.

The ranch looks like some whitetail deer could be living there.

Glad nobody was hurt. Did it start in the evaporator/blower motor housing? Mine tried to do that to me. Coming up with some kind of screen to keep the debris from getting in

Tracked down some new to me axles. Hard to tell from here but the rumor is that’s a Dana 35 and an 8.8 with 5.13 Yukon’s inside. Gonna take a road trip and find out for myself.

Whoa... talk about some extended sway bar links. Hard time seeing the steering set up too.

Parts in the mail. Wiper blades, wiper washer nozzle and washer motor. Gotta see where you’re goin. Started on the exhaust. Y pipe is there but then it’s just a cut off nub of what I think was the cat. IDK. Got the old flange apart and cleaned up. I’ll use it as a start. I’ll keep it simple for now. Pipe, muffler, turn out in front of the rear tire. Not sure how long I wanna run that 2.8. No need to do fancy.

Awesome thank you.
I installed the new nozzle today. It’s not factory. In fact it’s backward. The keyway is in the front when it should be on the back. I took a file to the keyway (plastic) and filed it down. The locks still hold it in place. Works fine, Just a heads up. Good luck.

My credo
Do what you can with what you have where you are
Had the driver side seat rebuilt. New foam on the bottom portion of the seat along with some new OEM blue material on the bottom panel.
