Default Tony's Bronco II (hey, it has F150 parts in it)

After years of doing just enough to get it to run, taking the easy way out, and lots of sitting in my backyard, itís time to get my BII back on the road/trails. This truck has been in my life since I was 2 years old, when my mom bought it (1 year used) to replace her rusted out Early Bronco. It has traveled with me from upstate New York, to south Texas, to NW and NE Arkansas. I dug it out of a field when I was 12, drove it through high school, and it sat while I went to college. It was then resurrected as a cheap play toy for a couple years, but cheap fixes only last so long.
Here is a little time line:

fast forward a couple years, and instead of the full-width dana 44 / ford 8.8 combo, i swapped in a 44 / 9 inch combo from a 79 f150

and motor changed to this one

swapped over the FI wire harness from the 150 (color coding for the basic stuff didn't change from 84 to 94), but got in over my head. took it all back out, put the BII stuff back in. stashed for future use.

now i have a factory Ford aluminum 4 barrel intake, Holley carb, and one of those "all in one" GM style distributors.



and there she sits....
