    6 inch lift on 1995 bronco

    looks like you have a 4" lift to me. What your cost is depends on what lift kit you buy. But I would easily suggest new drive lines because the factory ones won't hold up at the new angles the 6" lift will cause. https://www.customwheeloffset.com/store/suspension?sort=popular&year=1995&make=Ford&model=Bronco&drive=4WD&lift=6q I would give the boys at Big Dick Suspension a call and see what parts they recommend changing out with one of their kits. http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma=3&mo=22&ty=31&yr=1980-1996

    What Did you Do With Your Bronco Today???

    Got my new fuel injectors from fiveologyracing. But my 29 day old fuel pump in the tank died. Had the Centurion towed back to the mechanic. He does good work but he's a one man shop and his lot was full when I dropped it off. I thought about doing the fuel pump myself but the 30 day parts and labor warranty is about to pay for its self.

    Odd issue

    I was driving my '91 the other day and had the oddest thing happened, After making it about 2 or so miles into my run across town I was coming to a stop and my Bco acted like it was trying to push through the brakes and the engine died. It re-started with no issue but when I put it in drive it died again. I try'd again, put the transmission in Neutral, started the engine, engaged Drive and the engine died again. I was like... So I try'd again, but this time I skipped D and went strait to first, engine stayed running. Shifted into Drive with my foot still on the Brake and the engine died again. At this point I'm getting a lil' up set. Started the engine in N and revv'd the engine out of frustration. Back to "D" and drove with out issue. Made my stop, and drove to the other side of town, and it happened again. That time I could put it in drive as long as my foot was giving the gas pedal a lil' push. And even then the engine sounded like it was under a major load. The next few stop signs had me putting the transmission into neutral when coming to a stop. After driving home I needed to make another trip a few hours later, this time my trip was drama free like nothing happened. Now I've had issues with my E4OD for a long while now, and from what I've been reading on the F150 forums and other Bronco forums this happens when the Torque Converter stay's locked when coming to a stop. I'm thinking that this is what is happening and that it's time for a new TC. Just wondering if I should be looking for anything else before I pull the transmission.

    Odd issue

    The Best answer would be to take the Bronco to a trans shop and have them put their tools on it. I'm thinking before I do so I'm going to try a new MLPS and while I'm under there look for any damaged wires.

    Code 111

    Odd issue

    I'll honestly say that I forgot to even think about checking for codes. For the reason that, in the past anytime I've had an issue with an engine not running correctly I've never gotten codes. A year ago when the transmission was running hotter then the engine, I never got any codes. Now grant'd that was due to a bad EEC, my point still is it just seems like any time I have an issue the computer doesn't throw a code for me to find. I'll check after work today just to be sure.

    What Did you Do With Your Bronco Today???

    I've been reading on the internet that tires that mount'd onto a 16.5" wheel like to do this. But in this case I'm going to go with "TIRE FAILURES CAUSED BY OLD TIRES" and lack of maintenance. 35x12.5 r17 tires an't the cheapest at the moment So I'm thinking about getting some stamp'd steel rims just so I can keep driving it this winter.

    Put a Blind spot mirror on the Centurion and drove around the block to see how I liked the angle of the mirror. Thank fully It was only around the Block, tire let its own air out. This tire hasn't had any issues with leaking, no punctures through the tread, just gave up the ghost...

    Last Bronco I shared was LS powered but this one is power'd by a work'd over 460.

    Got the controls working. The white vacuum line under the hood completely rotted out so the system never had enough suction to operate the diaphragms to move the dampers.

    89 4 Door

    It was a bit of a process but it was worth it. I found an ad on craigslist for a 1989 Centurion Classic. Over the years I have seen these a few of these on ebay, some on craigslist on the east side, but mainly I read about the 4 Door Bronco in the archive sections of forums. When I saw this one listed and saw that it was in my price range I had to take a look and try my best to bring it home. It was 2.5 hours away from my house and I had to wait to see it because of my schedule, or the seller's schedule. After talking to the seller I found out that the Bronco had been sitting for a few years in the back of their yard but it was started and moved about once every other week. That was helpful information and allowed me to I pack a few extras for the trip. Owning nothing but Fords it was easy to find some extra parts... My buddy from Highschool likes taking road trips and he had the day off the same Tuesday I did. I didn't ask him to take the day off it just work'd out that way. After looking things over and taking the Bronco for a test drive I pulled the trigger. My Highschool friend and seller of the Bronco were worried about the cracks in the sidewall of the tires so I put the ugly stock highway tires from project Betty and drove the 2.5 hours back home. The road trip back was fun, part of the gear we took was some GMRS radios. They are kinda like amateur radios but use different frequencies in the FCC band plan. I had a 15watt radio with a mag mount antenna and my buddy had a 5 watt radio using the same mag mount antenna Midland includes in the box. Both worked perfect for highway cruising and made riding in different vehicles way fun. I like using GMRS radios because the antennas are ~4" tall compared to tall CB antennas. After arriving back in the valley at midnight we unloaded the extra tires that came in the Purchase and crashed for the night. This past week had been crazy. It's car show week and I like taking the Crew Cab F-350 out but in between shows and cleaning sessions on the truck, I drove the 4 Door as much as I could. Even snapped a few pic's. After the Show and shine event on Saturday I had some light left in the day to clean up the 35"s and see how bad they are. I think that for around town they'll be just fine. My dad introduced me to a volunteer firefighter here in the valley who is also a Bronco enthusiast and we stopped by his house. We took a look at the paint and it should clean up quite well. Definitely many adventures to be had with this special Bronco.

    87-91 Front Bumper

    Guys, the hard part about the 87-91 Trucks is that their is no aftermarket support for these like their is for the 92-97 Trucks. I'm looking for one of these or something close to. I'd like to have one for my '91 Bco and my Centurion had one of these when it was Born but when the paint and Body was done in 2012 or '13 the trim never made it back on. Any leads for finding something like this would be great. I'm almost to the point of making something out of sheet metal in our fab shop at work. Even then I don't think it would look as good as I want it to.

    Did some minor maintenance on the '91, I need to learn a thing or to about cable management but It is definitely time for a yellow top.

    Spent most the day rewiring the aux circuit in the Centurion. Found out that the CB was disconnected. Powered it up on the Bench and what do ya know... it wouldn't transmit. Replaced it with a https://midlandusa.com/product/mxt275-micromobile-two-way-radio/ rewired power going to the rocker switches, fixed the dome lights, removed all those stupid scotch locks and butt connectors barely holding wires together, fixed the wiring going to the brake switch, also installed a switch to turn off the brake lights (just for the fun of it.) Before I started this wiring I had a issue that the Centurion was running hot, pulled the radiator and found that the fins were full of mud, flushed it inside and out, replaced the t-stat with a 180°F unit and refilled. Finished up most the wiring and went for a drive, Now I have ~178° running around town and 182° at idle.
  20. If everything else in the engine bay is in good working order then I would fix the stupid smog pump and be happy. If you already have a modify'd engine bay then I wouldn't hesitate to delete the pump. most people choose to run a new belt but if it were me I would buy a delete pulley and keep the stock size belt btw, I don't know if removing the smog pump causes the little light on the dash to come on or not.

    I've never used a Teflon lube in the window guides, my dad taught me to use graphite. Next on my list is the chrome and headlight haze. For now I spent the time getting 99% of the hard water stains off the paint. Here is a Before: And here is After: Took it to a parking lot get-together and cruise. Only the guys who were older really knew the importance of the Centurion Badging, this is one vehicle that has to be explained to the younger generation (my generation). Met with a guy that had a Supercharged lightning and he really liked that it was in black. If I had a gray interior it would be tempting to have a custom made Nite stripe apply'd XD
