1987 Bronco 2 Project

Postby seannkyle » Tue Apr 06, 2010 1:11 pm

My friend and I split this bronco the other day and are planning on building a beater rig. We are both new to Ford trucks we both have Jepp Cherokees but are very excited about this one!!

It is a 2.9V6 5 Speed 4x4 we have $150 in it the way it sits now. It will need new gears in the rear to start.

I though the gears were gone but they are good. The part that meets up with the driveshaft and pinion gear (yoke?) is stripped. Not sure what that part is called sorry for the lack of information. My buddy helping me with this project is outta town for a couple weeks. He's normally my go to guy.

Joeyy come on over and lend a hand and I might give ya one of those tasty beverages.!!

I'll add pics of what I'm talking about tommorow
