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. I drove this truck a good bit on back dirt roads, and beat the living daylights out of it. This particular truck is how I fell in love with Broncos in general.
Anyways, I laid the truck up probably about 4 years ago because it has some drivability issues, namely it would stall when you make a turn, and it would stall if you didn't keep your foot on the gas while idling. I figured it needs a tune-up and possibly a new IAC sensor. Not a huge deal, and fairly inexpensive. I also knew it needed new battery cables as the ones that are on it are corroded immensely, and the ends are eaten up at the battery side. Again, not a huge deal, and I was able to clean and rebuild the existing cables enough to get it to crank the motor reliably until I can replace them. The thing I wasn't expecting is that the fuel pump seems to be dead on it now. The fuel pump worked when I laid the truck up 4 years ago, but I don't know how well, maybe that was causing the stalling issues in the first place.
So, she currently sits with the rear end on jackstands awaiting me to have enough time to drop the fuel tank and test/replace the pump. Oh, and the tank's full of 4 year old gas, all 32 or so gallons worth...
