While your having that much fun you now need a square tube roller so you can arc that top tube. Then a tube bender and a really good plasma set up and then get sucked into a good welding table.

It amazes me on what people are able to accomplish in a small working space.

My hat is off to you... You must have very understanding neighbors or you grease the squeaky wheel regularly.

Funny... I drove up the street with this rig almost a year ago neighbors thought cool nice truck. since then I have had body parts strewn across the drive way almost every day since the. Most of my neighbors have been really cool, I live on a single loaded street so that helps. My wife is the most annoyed since I took her parking place in the garage. I will post a picture of the utter mess I have made so far.

Last step before taking frame to powder coating!

Started to breakdown my front and rear axils, the rear looks good, I am upgrading to 32 spline I think my 28 would be welcomed by allot of the members on this site. I think the entire rear is in great shape, I just need to upgrade to different gearing.

The front axil looks weird, do the C bushing perches look wonky? PO did some fantastically shitty improvements..

Body underside is almost ready for Lizard Skin, hopping to get at it this weekend...

I don't see anything out of the ordinary with the front c-bushing pads/wedges. They are skewed on purpose, if that was what you were talking about.
But while you do want them clean and rid of any casting scale and/or rust that might be around, you really don't want to powder coat them.
Maybe you can get your coater to apply just a tiny bit of coating to the pads to help them be part of the overall coating and maybe resist a little rust. Bu the typical thickness of coating actually changes how the bushings install.
Most C-bushings (but not all) will squeeze out a little bit during the torquing down of the caps. Add just those few extra mils of powder however, and they will very likely look like they're trying to spread their wings as they compress in the center and splooge out the sides.

Powder is great. But this is one o fit's little extras to be aware of.

Oh, and the rear has either been swapped in from a passenger car, or you got a semi-oddball in yours.
Not that it couldn't have happened on the assembly line back then, but the "pinion snubber" (that flat-ish flange, or hood over the top of the yoke is not a normal Bronco rear end part.

They were common on large passenger cars where they were trying to limit axle wrap, or use it as a common bump-stop pad when they could not accommodate any farther out the tubes.

I think they're kind of cool myself. Never seen one on an EB that was there from the factory, but I would not be at all surprised if they exist.

Boy, someone was having an off day when they were stamping that thing! Kind of all over the place.
Maybe a Friday after "lunch" was when it got stamped out.

D2 would usually meant '72 in Ford parts-speak, but on an axle tag it could mean other things I suppse. The J9 looks like an axle code. Is that an "A" or a "4" in front of it?

haha! Nope, at 29,999 I knew everything, but at 30,000 I forgot most of it.
Getting my knowledge on in another thread about ignition and instrument voltage to show I don't know diddly.
Or Jack either!

Thanks
