Thanks! I don't need the rockers, cab corners, or drivers side fender, so I'm trying to sell them. If I do, I'm basically getting all those parts for free! Id love to do my truck at the level that you are, but I lack the tools and space. More updates will come, I'm posting all the stuff I've done since I bought it, and I'm only at April so far.

Can you fix some of the pictures on page 1? There's about five that don't work towards the bottom of the page. Or is it just my computer? Nice find, the 80's models were my favorite of the broncos and F series.

Maybe the image is too large for your computer, I can't crop any of my pictures down, so some of them are really large

Did it not fit in the bezel? Or was it hitting things behind the dash?

There was no way to mount it, I spent weeks trying to figure out how to do it. I ended up screwing a spacer to the dash to support it, and using Velcro to hold it in place. It works well, but it is a bit tricky removing the bezel and radio.

I got my stereo adapter from Wal Mart of all places, wiring and mounts. It mounts into the dash behind the bezel, it fits awesome. No cutting or anything. I have to get one for my Bronco still, but I have it in the Flareside. I'll see if I can get at it today and pop the bezel out for some pics.

Congrats on the bronco and good looking work so far. Seeing them on the trailer on the way to their new home is a good feeling.

Thank you!

I got my radio at Walmart too, it was $55, and came with 2 speakers. I even bought an adapter plug, but the plug on the factory harness was hacked off by the PO, so I had to hard wire it.

Here's another update:
In May, my truck started clunking when I stepped on the gas, 2 days after it started doing that, the rear U-joint snapped and the driveshaft bound up and broke the front H-yoke. So I had to go get a new driveshaft and U-joints. Only pics I have of that are with the driveshaft removed and the T-case tag.

Back before I got my bronco, I went and looked at this one up the road from me, it was too rusty though. I went back, and bought all these parts for $50

I thought that was a falcon beside of it. I am looking for one to restore for my wife and was going to ask if it was for sale. With the price he gave you on those parts I was hoping to get a deal on it
