Lifted about 4", ift was installed by previous owner prior to 2004

Body was sand blasted(all exterior and interior, othing on the underside other than wheel wells), rimed, nd painted in 2005. Nice base clear paint with pearl in the first coat of clear. The color is a BASF Diamont RM M8380X (or possibly M8308X, y receipts show it both ways) its a very dark purple color thats beautiful, coats laid over a black base, t looks black out of the sun. The top is a single stage white with some flattener mixed in at 30% (I think 30% if I remember correct). Over $3,700 in paint receipts alone for materials!

Odometer shows 67,xxx miles, itle is mileage exempt (not rare, E is a pain with anything over 10 years old), riginal title status. I don't have a reason to believe the vehicle has more than the odometer mileage, ut it is exempt. I've put about 8,000 miles on the vehicle in the 12 years I've owned it.

I have receipts for 95% of whats listed here that total in excess of $12,000! and keep in mind that's just materials!

To fully disclose any know defects here's a list of things that might concern you

- I do smell a coolant odor and suspect the radiator has a leak at the very top, t never leaves a drop of coolant but you can smell it. I believe it seals up hot and slightly leaks out vapor when cooling down. I've driven it this way 2 years and it isn't a concern to me

- 3 paint flaws noted in the pictures. Drivers door above the key handle, aint is lifting and cracked. Drivers front hood, weld cracked causing the paint to crack and lift. Passenger/middle hood, star crack in the paint. Keep in mind this was painted long enough ago that any paint flaws that would show up have, o no more should appear. You never know what you're getting on a newly painted vehicle. The fact this was painted in 2005 is a plus.

- washer squirters inop - the pump isn't hooked up (reservoir is there, ot sure if it holds fluid, 've never bothered to hook it up)

- coolant shut off valve works but doesn't have a cable hooked up - I just move it manually

- speedo jumps - its a cable issue

- oil psi gauge reads high (not an oil psi issue, lectrical issue) (if it has psi its good so no need to fix)

- horn inop - issue in the horn contacts in the column

- cracked passenger topper window

- t-case will slip into neutral once in a while if driving on the highway with light load (more than likely a shifter adjustment but not a concern of mine so I drive it that way, ust put it back in gear)

All of the things listed above aren't big issues, ore nit pick items. 100% of the Broncos for sale need something (if they cost less than 40k). I just want to disclose everything I can so the new owner is happy =)

When you've owned something this long you forget things, 'm sure there's other stuff that's been done I've forgotten, ts been a fun Bronco. I would like to sell it to fund another project that's been sitting idle for 10 years. I'm in no hurry to sell
