there are obstructions in the frame like the self taping bolts for the factory skid plate and the rear tank skid plate. might have to back thoes out if you planning to go out the back.

Yeah I planned to back those out, good thought! I like the pressure washer idea too. I may try that if this brush doesn't work, it finally showed up this evening. Tomorrow is the day!

Looks like they cheaped out on the number of bristles. The one I have has almost double what I'm seeing. How stiff do they feel?

Hopefully it will work just fine for you. We are all pulling for you.

MSmith has the right idea. I always clean the inside of the frame tubes and it is amazing what can come out of them. I have a hydraulic hose as long as the frame rail and attach it to the pressure washer. Remove both bumpers and blast away. Anything in the frame is coming out. Sometimes it's surprising what comes out of the cleanest Bronco frames!

Comment on the # of bristles on the brush. My two chimney brushes, 6" & 8" also have probably double the number of bristles....

It didn't, but then I shot it with some brake cleaner and bike chain oil and its good as new. Was sort of hoping it wouldn't work so I could frame it lol. That clang noise it made drove me crazy!

I can sneak over to their house and toss another one in there. That would really be icing on the cake!

Be just in time too, if BnB is going to join in on the Coast Run next Saturday. Thinks it's all good, only to hear a new rattle!

So you going to be able to make that run Bitch'nBronco?
