1989 Bronco II
#1

Hi everyone, you may have seen this truck on the Facebook page, I got rid of FB so here I am.

It’s a bronco II with an 88 Turbo coupe motor.
I wired almost everything up to work as factory, even the octane switch.
It has a 4” lift with long travel radius arms.
Was trying to do things the way it would be in 1989 so there’s no light bars or 18” wheels here.

WELCOME to TurboFord, Bob!  <thumbup>  2.3 Bro II's are rare.....AFAIK, Ford sold very few of 'em.

I don't know what you're seeing on your end, BUT.......the images you posted from "imgbb.com" are not displaying for the rest of us.  <shrug>

Had an '89 Bronco II once myself.  It left me when I got divorced Big Grin
If you happen to need a '89 factory service manual set, I guess I have one I don't need anymore Wink

I really appreciate the offer but Honestly I don’t think it would do me much good. nothing is original other than the body, frame & transfercase 😂

It was an interference fit, unfortunately  I think I put the engine too close to the firewall which is also preventing me from removing the valve cover, I should’ve just bought a ranger oil pan.

I just trimmed the heater box until it cleared. I JB Welded some plastic back in and put some heat tape over the top.

I’m running 32” tires, I’ll be moving up to 35s and 5.13 gears at some point.

I’ll snap some more pictures tonight.
