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.)

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

Great Truck — Performance: 351W motor at about 250 crank HP, 310 torque E4OD transmission...needs rebuild, but shifts firm Dana 44 TTB front axle, wears badly on the outside of the tires Ford 8.8 rear axle, backlash needs to be reset Skyjacker class 1 6 inch lift: 6 inch blocks in the rear, dual shock conversion and 6 inch lift springs in the front 35/12.50R15 inch Dick Cepek FC-II radial tires, very good road life and excellent off road traction American Eagle rims Paint on driver side is good, tailgate and passenger side clear coat is peeling Hood has dent above driver headlight Interior is good, acid burn in carpet, driver seat is torn. Only gets about 8 street and 13 highway MPG Recently replaced heads, engine dress up kit, repainted TTB, replaced steering box Very fun to drive, plenty of power for a 7800 lbs vehicle, outstanding offroad performance, good low range gear in t-case, NEVER been stuck I do plan on building a mild 408W stroker motor, 78-79 Dana 60 SAS coil spring set up, Coperperate14 bolt rear end, Level 10 E4OD transmission, and maybe some new paint......

Loved It. Wished I Didnt Sell It. — 351 had alot of torque and fair amount of HP. loved taking off from a stand still. the bronco was the true definition of built tough.it can handle anything a stock truck can be faced with and more. The truck was in great condition.

Not Bad If Your Working — It got terrible gas mileage but if you need a people hauler you would find anything better. It needed repairs almost constantly which made it stupid expensive. But it was still a lost of fun to drive. You could stick that thing anywhere.

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.
