Congrats buddy. Good progress on life! Get that house squared away and you can get back to wrenching on the Bronco!

Unfortunately the bronco is getting parted out. I'll be saving some things for the 79 but most of it is just getting sold off or scraped. Im focusing on the 150 now... Also the lack of time has made me have to decide between which project I'd rather pursue.

On the upside I'm thinking about quitting and going over to caterpillar or Detroit power products. Both have mining deals so that would be fun to work on.

Progress is about to be made. putting in a shopping list for about 1800. new lift kit to get rid of the dual blocks in the rear and freshen up the front. all new brake components, new power steering components, (going to take the sweet cooler you put on the bko rich) new gear sets (4.86/4.88) motor mounts water pump filters.

Also threatened to quit, so now i'm off the service truck and monday to friday in the mornings. no more 6/12s!!! woohoo

Sounds like some good parts. What's the end goal with the truck? Not to throw a wrench in the equation but put some serious thought into how much money you put into those axles before you spend money on gears, steering parts, etc.
