Yesterday around 3pm I got home with the bronco! Tuesday morning I dropped it off an an exhaust shop, where they built me a full stainless exhaust
Once that was done, I dropped it off at a pretty good alignment shop, which just so happened to be about 1 mile south on the same road. They had it until Thursday afternoon, doing an alignment and inspection. As soon as they called me, I hitched up the trailer and ran down there to pick her up!
The bronco aced its inspection, no problems whatsoever!
By the time I got home and got it off the trailer it was already pretty late for me (I work nightshift), so my maiden voyage was my trip to work last night! It did great!
A few things I noticed.
This morning after work I realigned the door, and then put the sway bar back on the front, which obviously made a big difference. I also replaced the broken tailgate support cables. There is still more work to be done, but its all minor now. I want a tach cluster, and a pre-airbag horn pad with the cruise controls. I need to replace the blown rear speakers, modify the tire carrier, and, now that I know the trans shifts fine, I can install my Punisher valve body sitting in the garage. After that its basically 'done'. For now!
