  1. I don't mean to laugh at the misfortune of having your cluster f'ed up, but that is by far one of the funniest things I have read on this site.
  2. This has been discussed pretty extensively before, try this link: http://broncozone.com/forums/index.php?sho...mp;hl=body+lift Search the forums also if you have any more questions..GL
  3. Haha, I don't think you offend anyone when you say you can't stand lawyers. I think patent lawyers are pretty laid back, they're not a bunch of ambulance chasers trying to make a quick buck. They would definitely be the best people to talk to about patenting something. I'm not sure exactly how patenting an idea works, but there's definitely a difference between a patent about how something looks, and how something actually works. They would probably steer you in the right direction regardless.
  4. I would suggest speaking to a patent lawyer...there's basically two types of patents, depending on what you want to accomplish. You can either patent an exact design which specifies exactly the parts and how they all work, and then no one else can copy that design. Or, you can patent an idea such as a new way the soft-top works that no one else has done before. Either way, a patent lawyer would first help you to decide what corner of the market you're trying to reach. There's no point building an entire prototype if there is only one component which would be patentable.
  5. So if I understand correctly, one of two things could be happening: 1. Your truck is running perfectly fine, the oil pressure gauge drops and THEN your truck stalls. OR 2. Your truck is running perfectly fine, then starts stalling and sputtering and your oil pressure drops because of this. Either way, search the forum on how to pull codes for your Bronco and start from there.
  6. What type of gas do you use (87, 89, 93)? It could be that under light loads your engine is detonating and causing the shudder. Have you checked your timing also?
  7. Have you seen the seamaster version? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Dog...printer1960.jpg It came set up with a twin turbo from the company, 1325lbs!!!!
  8. I have a 351W with a C6, and dual exhaust all the way back. See this post for some pics of my truck: http://broncozone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15586 I do have a body lift, but at the time the guy ran the exhaust I didn't. If you can find someone who's good with a pipe bender they should be able to figure it out. Let me know if you have any more questions.
  9. That's an interesting thing to do with a stock bronco! Anyways, as far as the body lift goes you're going to need a good floor jack (to jack up the body to slide the new bushings in), preferably an impact gun to get the old/rusted bolts out, the new hardware (should come with the kit), and access to a welder or a shop that can weld. The reason you need a welder is you have to extend the stock shifter linkage to account for the new height of your body. You'll also need to do the same with your 4x4 shifter if it's manual. Steering linkage and brake lines should be OK. Your bumpers will stay exactly where they are on the frame and it ends up looking kind of goofy. You'll need to trim your radiator fan housing also. For the back bumper most people get diamond plating, and in the front you're pretty much sol unless you fabricate some new brackets. I was lucky and didn't have to extend my gas tank filler hose or any electrical wiring, but it may be different with you. I don't recommend a specific brand, but you shouldn't be paying more than $100-$150 at the most for the lift kit itself. This has been covered extensively before; search the forums and you'll see stuff like: http://broncozone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=14357 If you're going to be running over cars and want to go crazy in your Bronco, a body lift won't do much as it's mostly for looks. You don't get any extra clearance/offroad capabilities except being able to clear bigger tires. See: http://broncozone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=13596 But to each his/her own, so whatever you do make sure you know what you're doing and what you're in for! If you have any other questions about a body lift, let me know.
  10. Can you clarify? Are you saying that when you turn on the right turn signal your transmission slips??? When you turn on the left turn signal your cruise control turns off???
  11. Here's the pics, edelbrock 750 carb w/c6 Hopefully this helps, if not let me know if you need some more pics.
  12. My anti-theft system is wiring my fuel pump to a switch that isn't in plain view...I switch it off when I park the truck, and if someone happens to get it started they'll make it about 100 feet. Not having a steering wheel would definitely be a great way to dissuade theft..I doubt anyone is looking for a fuel pump switch when they steal a truck, and no steering wheel would definitely stick out!
  13. JSM84, I have an Edelbrock 750 on top of a 351W, with a c6. I'll take some pictures tomorrow if you think they'd be helpful.
  14. You could use a tin can as your muffler and it would NEVER sound like a rice burner ! I prefer the flowmaster 40 series, but it all depends on how loud you want it. Typically the younger you are the lower number series of flowmaster you use...
