My notes and thoughts about the projects I complete on my Suburban, Bronco, and various other things and events in my life.

The goal of my Suburban is to build it up while keeping it visually classic, while utilizing modern technology to enhance safety, power, and comfort.

  1. 93 Bronco: An Overview of Things Needed and Things to Come

    Well, as I said before, I bought a 1993 Ford Bronco XLT for $300. It was not running when I bought it, but I have had a long-running relationship with this truck, so I know how it runs, its quirks, and what it needs...Or so I thought.

    Well, after owning the Suburban for about 3 years with no cruise control, I fixed it! I always knew what the issue was, but didn't want to spend the money to fix it.
