1995 4.9L from F-150. Completely transplanted, including computer, air filter, y-pipe, & all accessories. 130A alternator, 1996 Bronco gas tank & pump. K&N drop-in.
1978 F-250 NP-435; '93 BW1356 clocked; reman rear d'shaft; rebuilt front d'shaft; '96 Bronco D44IFS with 3.07 open diff; rebuilt Ford 8.8" 3.08 open; stock F&R antisway bars & Energy polyurethane bushings all around.
It has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for the 2nd time now. Most of the body & frame are '93, the tailgate is a '96, the door mirrors are heavily modified with LEDs, and the camper shell is a '96 with a '94 Explorer roof rack & '82 sliding windows. The rear seat is the original '83 part, but the front seats are '97 Econoline captain's chairs. The instrument cluster & wiring harnesses have been heavily modified so the factory fuel reset light works, and a semi-factory low fuel light has been added. I've added AutoLamps, AutoDimming Brights, RKE, one-touch both directions for all windows, an auto-dimming compass rear-view mirror, dual visors, dual spotlight wiring, always-on PW. The CB & radar detector are hard-wired. Planned mods include a sunroof & articulated doors. The bumpers are my own design (mostly hand-built). The front includes recovery points & a Ramsey RE12000. The rear bumper has an integral hitch receiver & 3 locking storage boxes.

47Carpet.JPG 37 hits | 124.66 KB | Posted: 4/10/14 The weather was really nice today, so I blasted all the grime out of this carpet, loaded it with PurplePower & rinsed a few times, then left it hanging in the sun & breeze to dry and kill any funk in the padding.
MirHeater.JPG 32 hits | 118.92 KB | Posted: 4/9/14 This heating pad fits pretty well in the swivel cup on the mirror backing plate, and after testing it in my deep freezer, it works well enough for me. Obviously, they don't heat the WHOLE mirror, but it's enough to make them useable. Fortunately, I...

VaultDoor.jpg 53 hits | 93.48 KB | Posted: 3/26/14 This is the door to a lockbox I'm installing. Yeah, it's a lot heavier than it probably needs to be, but that's me. The box itself will be much lighter (but still overkilled) and large enough to store a few tablets, a few cell phones, a few cameras...
47CBantenna.jpg 56 hits | 107.27 KB | Posted: 3/19/14 After a lot of hemming & hawing, I decided to punch a hole in the roof for the CB antenna. But I found a foldover adapter so it doesn't have to stick up all the time.

IF THE IMAGE IS TOO SMALL, click it.
The FDM connector shown is for '94-96; '90-93 use the older connector (WPT454) that mounts directly to the FDM plate.
Replacing the actuators is a PITA, even though the parts are cheap & easy-to-find at parts stores for ~$20ea. Call your local used car lots & independent repair shops for the number of a local steering column specialis...
