I liked the steering wheel that I put in Casper so much.....I got one for the Bronco. The black one was too flat and you couldn't shift without your hands hittin the steering wheel.

Nice job on the flares! And I like those hood pins too. I didn't notice them before. That steer-wheel adds some class and nostalgia to it. Looks great against the dash in the background.

Like-n that bottle open-r too.

In an earlier episode....I cut the door hinges so I could easily take the doors off.

I didn't cut them like most I've seen do, where they remove a 1/3 of the hinge. I cut the pins out , so I can use removable pins or bolts.

I found that they make a matching shift knob for the transfer case....but I don't want to spend the money on it cause I want to twin stick it later.

I was surprised I found the matching door locks.....

Awesome door straps !!!!

I bought some that velcro, so easy to take the doors off. (I converted a set of hinges to lift off)

I'm stymied at the moment, proportioning valve is stuck, no fluid flows to back brakes. Got it pulled, now to figure out whether I can get rebuild parts, or have to replace it. Ugh

Gummi Bear's post made me think up a question for ya, so the braided door straps, will you just unbolt the cab side before the doors come off and leave the straps and brackets with the doors when you want em removed? Those braids are really cool!

My brother just cut the hinges and pins on his old xj hunting ride. It's a hack job compared to this but it's a beast in the field, that lil jeep goes anywhere! We Have it home from the lease now getting it ready for next season and cleaning a few things up and refresh the camo job! The door straps were a topic over beers the other day.

Yes....2 screws and the straps are off.

My buddy's bronco back brakes wernt working. Replaced flex line that goes from the hard line down to the top of my he rear diff. Problem solved. It's really close to the exhaust right there and the liner failed. Might be sumthin to check.

I went through all that, praying it was the problem.

I got the valve out, and that sucker is super stuck. No air passes through on the rear circuit. It is stuck, and the plug in the end is stuck too. Front flows fine. There is a piston that slides back and forth, in the event of loss of pressure it slides to block off the low pressure side and protects the side with pressure

I made a few calls this morning, and wound up just ordering a Wilwood adjustable proportioning valve.

Now, I have to adapt, and run a couple new lines to get brakes working.

Once that is done, I can finally hook up power steering hoses, then crank it up.

If I was keeping it, I would.

I'm building it to sell. Rear discs and EFI are about the only upgrades left, I gotta leave something for the new owner.

Son, that is some fine looking Bronco's. And that climbing statement, we had a climb out in Marfa that most folks would climb out the Bronco and walk up while my bud climbed it. It was pretty scary.
