The Modifications Page

Every Bronco that "evolves" from its stock beginnings goes through a number of changes. This page documents most of the ones that I have done and am in the process of doing. If you want to see more of a specific mod, just e-mail me and I will see what I can do.

Modifications:

Floor Shifter: Let's face it: the stock three-on-the-tree isn't very good at all those fun things like speed shifting and trying to look cool. There are kits out there that allow you to move the shifter to the floor, but I didn't like any of them because they take away from the leg room of the driver. I wanted mine centrally located and easily installed. So here it is.

Rear Quarter Support: When you cut the rear fenders for flairs you can cut around the quarter supports or you can throw them away... and as always I didn't do the conventional thing... I relocated them. They still support the quarter (almost as well as the stock position) but don't get in the way. This is a second photo of the passengers side.

Rear Shock Relocation: Moving the shocks inboard allows for more wheel travel, addition of more shocks and a bit of a "wow" factor since it is a relatively new idea. I like it because I really think the stock location is an eyesore, but hey, that's just me.

Front Shock hoops: Putting the Wild Horses Extreme Shock Hoops up front allows for the use of 3 shocks per side. Not that I have any intention of running three (I actually plan on running 2) it is just that they are the only hoops that I knew about that would put both shocks behind the wheel.

Accessory Wiring Harness: I added this harness to allow for accessories and to allow me to keep the stock harness "stock". The addition of another 30A of load on the factory wiring was not what I considered a wise move.

Power Steering: I call this the "Schmitt" project. It is so named because all of the assistance I received from Chris Schmitt. This man has really earned a lot of good "EB Karma" for all the help he has given me. I am installing a 76/7 box with a custom steering shaft (if I can find that last part I need!) and a Saginaw power steering pump. The pump installation was fairly simple given the excellent pics and write up on Jon Hanna's web page.
