1979 BRONCO RANGER XLT REBUILD
Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS.
2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this
vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at
the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off.
I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally
World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but
hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools.
As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't
"do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to
say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as
you may be able to see.
I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the
I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the
Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to
critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it"
Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.
1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT Startup & Drive
Driving the 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT with the durable 351M (Cleveland)
V8 and C6 automatic transmission. I incorrectly mentioned in the video
that the transmission was a Borg-Warner...it's a C6 3-speed auto with a
Borg-Warner 4-wheel-drive transfer case. I have not had to use the 4-wheel
drive, but it is functional with high and low ranges, and like other period
4-wheel-drive systems, you have to manually lock and unlock the front hubs.
Even with over 130,000 miles, it still runs great and starts on the first
crank. When I got it I had to replace the battery, headlight and taillight
assemblies, windshield wipers, and repair the turn signal and reverse
switches to get it on the road again. The taillights were difficult to
find but LMC Truck took care of those. More work will be done to it in the
near future to bring it to better condition than it is now, but it has been
very well maintained and I really enjoy driving it. I wish new cars still
had the personality this one has!
A couple of other things: I have the radio antenna, but took it off since
it's too tall for my tiny garage, and the aftermarket radio will be gone as
soon as I can find a vintage Ford replacement on eBay. It also came with a
vintage Motorola CB radio which isn't shown, I put it in the glove box
since I usually plug my iPod into the cigarette lighter.

1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT 400 v8 4x4
1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT. What you see is what you get. Outside looks
great, few rust spots here and there. Floor board is rusty in places, as
the pictures show. 33 inch tires. 400 v8 under the hood. This thing hasn't
ran in 8 years, and I didn't want to fool around getting it started and
possibly break something, so I'll let whomever buys it tinker with it.
PERFECT Mud Boggin' truck. Axles have less than 30k on them. Newer 'WARN'
4x4 lock outs.
TRANS IS BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Other than the above, the only information I can provide is via pictures.
No paperwork, although paperwork could be gotten for the vehicle. Previous
owner moved a few times, and the paperwork was lost.
Was towing it from my buddy's house to mine and thought to get pictures
before it got dark...
Not a bad looking truck, for being 30 years old.

I thought you'd like a look at thie 1979 Ford Bronco XLT 4x4. This low
mileage original is powered by a 400M backed by a C6 automatic. It's sure
is looking tough in that black paint. It also has some nice aftermarket
bumpers and even a winch up front. Hope you like looking at it, thanks for

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

Ford Bronco on the Rock Course
1 year at the Jeep Fest held at Bass Pro Shops. I was told that a(or my)
Bronco couldnt do the rock course that was strictly set up for jeeps with
extremely modified suspension. Well my truck at the time only had 35" tires
a 3" body lift and a 6" suspension lift. I think i did pretty well.
