So today with the help of my brother we got the body off and frame out from underneath but all did not go according to plan . The body cart did not work well and the way the guy showed the wheels mounted to the bottom of the 4x4 was not a good idea . The wheels collapsed when I was up in the truck helping to mount the top back on and I ended up putting some blocks underneath the cart frame to hold it off the ground. With plan B done I said let's call it a day we were wore out wrestling that damn top around. How much does that thing weigh anyway?IMG_2246.JPG

Good job..!!

BTW.., sorry, I may not have been clear.  You don't need a "new topic" when adding info./updates on

a multi-function task. Like body removal.

 

Only when working on say, engine removal & re-building the front axle or the like. (ea. would need their own thread)

 

Example: Frame restoration project topic  --- could have several questions/posts/comments/suggestions,

                all added to the original topic.

 

Really having fun now...!!!  :D/

Merged the topics

Parts replacement is not trouble shooting, replacement follows trouble shooting

Broncos are MPVs not SUVs

Engines run on fuel, or steam

Motors run on electricity, hydraulic fluid, vacuum, or air

kyBronco-  Keep it up!!  Nice job... You are probably inspiring quite a few to take on the project.

 

Looking thru some of you pics, if you need a spot to store your KTM, I have some space in my shop...  You won't have time for a couple years....  :)


1973 bought after highschool in 1987. It's been abandoned in the bushes at my parents for decades.
My son wanted a classic rig and we drug it out of the bushes....
Electronic ignition, new fuel system, new brake system, EZ wire harness, roll cage, stripped and painted, reupholstered, and a new stereo.  Engine rebuild, C4 and transfer case rebuild, 2.5" TPB 11pack, WH 1" body, TBP Twin stick, 33x12.5 Dick Cepek's
All work done in the garage by us....
