Ya ; Hwy 26 packed snow and ice might be a game changer - not that a Bronco with big traction tires, lockers, and lots of low end torque is squirrelly on that kind of stuff - it's those dummies with 2 whl drive and bald street tires who think 55 mph is only for the slow lane -- :roll: stan Hey!

Going on 5 weeks waiting for my ignition parts. IF I ever see them and IF this fixes my ignition issues, I'd like to get in on an overnighter. By the time I leave here, get over there, meet up and hit the road, run the loop, get back to town and break up to go home. I'd rather meet up and run a sect...

Setting the engine angle.

I'm interested in running the McGrew trail for Fathers day weekend but I'm 4 weeks into waiting for Bronco parts the way it is.

There's scuttle talk of having a Browns Camp trip the end of April, that could turn into a fun overnighter.

Use a meter on the battery, hot and ground. move the ground side of the meter to the body to see what voltage is there, check it on the frame and the firewall. Then move on to literally following the power wire to the starter and out to the other systems. Somewhere along the way you should see a dra...

This is a blue wire and a red wire going to a 2 pin connector from the wiper control.. From what I could gather last night, the black wire is the power for the washer pump. the Orange wire is power to the wiper motor and the other four are for the wiper motor itself.
NOW to find the heater switch.....

Wyring your own

Has anyone built their own harness? I was hoping to de-pin the connectors and run new wires but I can't find a source for those simple locking spade connectors. I have some that are damned close but I'm afraid if I rewire al the connectors in like the headlight switch that the plug wont fit back on.

You aren't showing ignorance at all. These are valid questions. Have we gone off on a tangent or did you get your original question answered? If you do go to a small lift, the track bar and drag link need to be as close to the same angle as possible. They are both pretty close in the picture.

If the Bronco has been lifted but the track bar has not been adjusted for it, then the axle could be off to the drivers side a bit.
