Well here they are, Ol #88 got its paint from the PO, bought to fix up and wheel... now its for sale, I just have way to many projects.
The other was rear ended by a s-10 doing 45 to 50 MPH, the Bronco was setting still, other than the frame rupturing the fuel tank and tweaking it aft of the front rear spring mounts, its still in great mechanical shape.
90,000 miles XLT parts truck now, sad deal, it was in pretty good body shape before the accident, other than a typical rusty fenderwell.
I was really looking forward to wheeling these rigs, then came across a 71 EB and my life has changed.
Yes the story from the rearedned Bronco's PO is he left it running in park at a gas station and went in to pay and it some how went into gear and rolled backwards into the street on the bottom side of a blind hill.
The chebby S-10 driver had a unsecured 350 eng block in the bed almost take off the whole cab and his head......
Eb are a life changing experience I happen to come across a great deal and had to jump on it, its been wheeled hard, but its complete as I need it and I have brought some life back into it.
Yea I know wrong year forum, just bragging. lol. The other 3 I have will go to good homes and or give or parts to other Ford Bronco's or trucks.
That's why I have a small hand winch in the garage and a rig to lift the top off the Bronco. Unbolt, hook in, lift and drive out from under it. And like all the good service manuals say, "install is reverse of the removal".

I did the same thing, just used ratchet straps, my bronco was a virgin never had its top off, there were 2 bolts that did not want to come out so the head of one met a cutting wheel , I took all the bolts to a wire wheel cleaned them all up.
Next time I take it off it should be an easier process
