This thing barely ran on a test lap in the field, I wanted to make sure the thing had oil pressure, the trans shifted and the xfer case worked.

It died right at the end of me seeing what I needed. We ended up loading it on my trailer with a backhoe.....then the fun began. I had to figure out what the PO did, then talked to the PPO and got even more info on it.

It rough, but its a fun rig. I do not cringe when I bump something, I just hit the skinny pedal. It climbs like a mountain goat on crack! lol

Not much new here, but I finally located a glove box door, not original to this Bronco so it had the old VI plate to the doner.

After the hinge mod it will now open even with a roll bar and not have to be cut.

Some times its the little things in life that are nice....like to not have things fly out the glove box.

I had to trim off a little more of the one side of the hinge left over and just used a coat hanger as the complete hinge rod. I did not cut the R/H side hinge only piece like in the diagram.

Pop it open a bit, slide it left to clear the roll bar, wala.

Sorry I forgot to take a pic of the amount I cut off, red box is according to the diagram, I did the green box to get it to slide even further.

In the diagram it shows to cut off a small piece of the bottom tab. I cut complete tab off on the bottom of the dash and did not cut the "right hinge only".

And ditch the springs and use a coat hanger for the rod from outer edge to outer edge.
