Original Suv — 1990 ford eddie bauer bronco new engine, transmission, and differential. new suspension (bushings, sway bars, steering components) new Racho shocks, new wheels and tires, new window motors and weather stripping around (can roll down back window from dash). new custom intake and exhaust (cat/muffler). pioneer cd player w/ ipod connection/remote and 4 infinity speakers. also replaced plugs, distributor, alternator, starter, radiator, brakes...basically, everything under the hood has been replaced (ie sensors/switches). new tint. painted white 2 years ago (including under the hard top - which comes off easily). i love this truck and has been a project of mine for a while now and would rather keep it for weekends, but just moved to austin and don't have anywhere to store it. :( it has been an everyday driver. pictures available on request.

Pros

Big safe and great for the backcountry. Survived being rear ended 5 times and side swiped once with ZERO damage over the last 13 years I have owned the vehicle.

Cons

Horrible gas mileage.

Big Blue. — The 1990 Bronco is a great vehicle for off roading and towing if the rear end leaf springs are stiffened up by adding leaves. This particular vehicle has a locker rear end awesome traction and great ground clearance. Has been with me for a very long time and I'm sentimetally attached to it regardless of it's few flaws. Ran great for 273,000 miles. My rear differential needs to be replaced as it failed far from home. the automatic 4x4 got me home without the need for a tow truck. It's going to be my Son's future project.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Third Owner — It's a big truck and it's 4x4 with power windows, a/c, push bar and I can remove the cab in the summer time, as well as, pull anything with my hitch on the back. I love my truck. It is a lot of fun driving this truck, I don't have to worry about bottoming out. It needs alittle body work due to rusting but all in all next to the Jeep cj7 I used to own, this has got to be the best.

A Fun To Drive Bronco — This bronco was very good. It had a smooth ride and nice handling. It was my first vehicle and i loved it. It needed some work to make it look better, but overall it was a nice bronco. I had to get rid of it because i sunk it when i went off-roading and broke some major stuff.

Good, But Could Be Better — idk what to tell you about this one... its old, beat, and fun to drive. runs like crap, has about 200,000 miles on it. always working on it, still needs more work. but it runs, and hard as hell to get it stuck, its got power. if i could fix everything wrong with it, it would be a great truck.

Should Have Kept It As A Pipe Dream — always wanted a bronco until i got one!!! thought it would be a fun project truck but theres way to many problems. wiring and obvious rust issues are the main problem. hopefully once i get the top off ill be inspired some more
