I remember in the 90's there wasn't a gearbox in any junk yard around here.

It's still hard to find this particular one. I have searched about 15 junkyards and couldn't find one. There were plenty of 80-86... but nothing for 78-79... I ended up sending it to California where they rebuilt it in about a week. Turned out really nice.

Well I better yank the steering box off the 78/79 Bronco frame I have before I part the rest. And what kind of bumpers do you have on your truck? they look good.

a guy on pirate is buying up the boxes for $90 each as cores... so my guess is any that are left in junkyards won't be for long.

These are custom built 6" pipe bumpers. They serve a great deal of purpose as you might imagine. 1.... just in case someone forgets to apply the brakes at a red light...2... secure tow strap on each end and run ****** block for those who might be stuck...3...weight to he a$$ end. lol

I am going to cut the front bumper pipe to fit a winch mount. Blast and paint.

Oh yes. It is worth some money. That is for sure. Have you parted out the Bronco yet?

gotcha. There are quite a few 78-79 Broncos available in Texas where I live. They are pretty reasonable too. I was thinking of buying one to flip, so I can finance my restoration on this truck...
