Rear-end swap

I have a 1986 Bronco II and I was told the rear axle would eventually need replaced. At one point, I bought an '85 BII for a transmission swap. Is there any difference in the rear ends from '85 to '86 (i.e, gear ratio or something) that might be of benefit to me or is there another year of BII I sho...

Cargo Rack Question

Quick question:

Will a cargo rack from a 2nd Generation BII work on a 1st Gen BII? My '86 has the screw holes for the rack but when I bought it the rack was gone and it seems like 2nd Gen cargo racks are much easier to find around here than one for the first Gen.
Thanks!

1985 2.8 V6 question...

I know this isn't a tech question but I wasn't sure where else to ask since I'm not placing an ad. I have a 2.8 carbuerated V6 in a 1985 Bronco II that I have someone interested in buying. I have no use for it in my '86 BII as it has a good-running 2.9 V6. The engine I am wanting to sell has about 1...

Re: Help! My 86 Bronco II won't stay running!!!

All right, folks. Thanks again for all your input. I got my Bronco II back from the shop a few days after my last post. Turns out it was still starting fine the whole time my mechanic had it (after replacing the distributor.)He just held on to it a few days longer than expected. So I have had it bac...

Re: Help! My 86 Bronco II won't stay running!!!

All right. Thanks to all who've offered their suggestions thus far. Sorry I haven't updated for a while. SO... I have had my B-II at a mechanic's for, oh, about 4 1/2 weeks so far. The first diagnosis led my mechanic to determine the engine is losing spark and he thought the EEC-Relay was the culpri...

Re: Help! My 86 Bronco II won't stay running!!!

Yes, it was the one on the frame underneath. I have a 1985 Bronco II I have for parts. It was running when I bought it but I just needed it for the transmission. Anyway, it has a carbureted 2.8 V6 in it. Can I use the computer out of that?

Re: Help! My 86 Bronco II won't stay running!!!

Ranger Dave, thanks so much for the quick response. I forgot to mention the fuel filter has been replaced (about 4 months ago). Sorry. So many parts replaced in a small amount of time. UPDATE: Last night, after reading some related posts on this handy website, I reset my inertia switch to see if tha...

Help! My 86 Bronco II won't stay running!!!

Hi. I'm new to this forum but I've been searching posts for a long time. Here's my deal: I have an '86 BII with a 2.9. I've had it for over a year. This past winter, it started running really rough when it got cold (40 or below - approximately). It would jerk/buck like no other until it was good and...
