Early Bronco Heat Riser Replacement

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Tech article by Mike Kipper (Kip60) I purchased a mostly original 1970 Sport last year. It didn’t run when I got it. Started with rebuilding the carburetor. Finally got it to run, but a little rich.

Liberty Electric Fan for your Early Bronco

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Tech article by Viperwolf1 While gathering parts for my 5.0 EFI install I happened across a two speed electric fan from a 2004 Jeep Liberty, part number 55037669AE.

Glove Box Relocation for Roll Cage

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

Installing a front roll cage was actually quite a bit more complicated and thought intensive than simply  fitting some pre-bent tubes together and welding them in place. It was all the work done to make  room for the cage that took the most time. Clearance becomes a premium when deciding exactly where to install the […]

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Tech article by Rob Wilson After replacing my motor with a brand new one, I was bummed to find that it still leaked oil. I had hoped that one of the benefits would be that I would spend less time wiping up oil from the garage floor. While I was building the new motor, I […]
