Haha, you made me write a big post for nothing! Just kidding, I suppose I should have payed attention to the dates also.

I have not used that kit, but it looks similar to my flex-a-lite kit. I'm...

Well I'll give my input on this subject since I do have dual flex-a-lite fans installed on my Bronco for a few years now.

I originally installed them because I though I may get slightly better MPG...

Good luck with your swap!! Makes me super jealous, I will get that done some day, but not until I get a career and my own place! Hopefully it will be within a few years, but school has been going...

Well I don't really know anything about automatic hubs, so I don't know how they are set up. However, I have warn manual hubs and it looks to me like all the pieces are there from mine. The only...

Well for the front end, my 96 has 213k miles on it and I haven't had to do much other than repack wheel bearings (which wasn't completely necessary either.) However I didn't put all 213k on it. I...

I have a 96 with the 5.0. I get about 14-15 with a 4" lift and 33s so you definitely have something wrong. I have 213k also.

I'm not too sure how the mileage of the 5.8 compares to the 5.0, but...

Yeah, I suppose worrying about the paint could wait until later. Selling your truck to buy a house is a smart move.. I would be pretty upset to let my truck go though.

However, even though I put...

Wow I can imagine the frustration of the water pump bolts breaking... I never broke mine, but I had to take it off recently and I changed some of my bolts.
The stud bolts I had looked like garbage,...

I don't know the exact date they got fuel injection, but I know it was at least in the 80s. Our 88 F-150 was fuel injected, it was a 5.8, but I assume they would have fuel injection on the 5.0s then...

Wow that seemed like a lot of work but those seat look really nice. I would love full power seats too, but I upgraded from a cloth bench to my leather eddie bauer bucket seats. I spent a good chunk...

I came here when I first got my bronco because I found a writeup (not in the bronco section) about how to install a stock tachometer in an f-150/bronco that didn't come with one. Because I was new to...

Hmm that's strange. I've never seen a bronco/F-150 of this era or earlier with the vacuum operated valve to keep hot water from entering the heater core. We had an '88 F-150 a while back with the...

I believe when the button is lit up, the mirror is "on" and when it's not, the mirror is "off". You won't initially notice much at all. What it does is dim any lights shining in the mirror towards...

Well for the overhead console, there is a metal bracket that it bolts into. I believe your ceiling should have tabs/holes in place for the overhead console bracket.

Here is a picture of what the...
