Here are instructions for Bronco II, Ranger, and Explorer. They may have
instructions for the Bronco too. Either way it's probably very similar.
I found I did NOT need a really big wrench to remove the big nut--it came
off easily after removing the lock pin just by tapping it gently with a
small hammer and screwdriver to get it to turn a little. You will probably
need the big socket to torque the new nuts though.
Here's some info on repairing autohubs if you are interested in keeping
Once again this is for Explorers but probably very close to the same thing.
I have 2 Explorers and put Warn manual hubs on both. It took a little over
an hour the first time and less than an hour the second time. The only
disadvantage I can think of is that you have to remember if they are locked
or not. I much prefer the manual cause they always work when I need them.
