Thanks. I'm really not sure at this point. When I was looking I always thought that I wanted one that was cut. Now that I have a clean uncut, I'm not sure.

Here are some pics of the engine. I really don't even know what I have yet, except for a mess of wiring. I'll get all of that cleaned up soon. I'm working on getting the tanks out and flushed right now.

Made lots of progress tonight. Got the rear tank flushed and reinstalled. Removed the side tank because I won't be using it. Changed up the fuel lines to bypass the fuel selector and removed miles of wiring that didn't have a purpose.

I'll use the stock rear tank until I can get a BC 23 gallon. I'll order that in a week or two. Tomorrow I'll start the brakes and the rest of the fluids. Should be on the road by Sunday.

I got my PS brackets from WCB and they are not powder coated black. The picture on their site shows them black. Looks like I'll be calling Monday when they return from KOH.

It broke down on me last night. I knew I would need to tackle the rats nest of wires under the hood soon. I thought I would be able to complete a few other things first, but that's not going to happen. I thought my alternator went out on me last night, but it ended up being the voltage regulator.

I bought a new one, but before I install it I'm going to fix the wiring under the hood. I bought the HD headlight conversion from Tom's and I'm picking up one of these tonight. 12 circuit fuse block with ground bus and cover. http://m.westmarine.com/aHR0cDovL3d3...01MDU1NA%3D%3D

Between the MSD wiring and the rats nest coming off of my starter solenoid I figure it will be a good idea to rewire the front of the Bronco right now. It will clean everything up and I won't be worried about a fire every time I drive it. I'll update with some pictures soon.

Hey Jaromy sorry to hear it broke down on you. I had the same rats nest when I got my bronco. The final straw was when my arm got burnt on a hot wire but at least the bronco did'nt catch on fire. I Went with a centech wiring harness and it was good to know I was safer on the road. As far as cutting it up for flares think on it for awhile before comitting the deed. I think your bronco looks phenomenal with the clean grey paint and no flares.

As far as breaking down goes, it wasn't bad. My buddy brought me a battery so I could get it to his house. I had to drive without lights for 10 miles while I followed him. That was interesting. I picked up the fuse panel today so I should be able to get started on it this weekend. I would buy a full harness but my friend is a wiring genius and he said it wasn't needed for what we're doing. I'll wait on the full harness for now. Thanks for the tips in the PM. I was able to search a few threads that you suggested.

If I do any cutting it won't be for awhile. I'm going to get it mechanically sound before I worry about the looks. I still need a 5 speed and a few other large projects. I never really liked the uncut look until I found one in good condition.

3g alternator and Tom's brackets have been installed. Still have some things to do to clean up the wiring under the hood, but for now this will work. Eventually I'll have a box made for the fender to hide and protect everything. I went with a 150amp breaker instead of the mega fuse.

Exactly!!

I have a few things to complete before I start the lift. 4x4x2 power steering, hydro boost, 23 gallon tank for sure and possible a 5 speed. Then it will be time for the lift.

I still need to figure out how I'm going to pass DEQ. I know I need a carb tune, but it was bad when I went in on Saturday. Not sure if I'll ever get it to pass.

You might have to move to Newberg if you can't get it to smog. Yamhill county is exempt,I believe. Are we locals going to get to see it pre-cut? See you soon!
