I Like It And Plane To Fix It Up So I Can Drive It A Lot More — this truck is a pure off road vehicle. this truck get terrible mpg. it is fun to drive through mud and water and what ever else you can find. it has good power and i havent found a tree that i couldnt pull. this is a very fun truck to drive when it runs. a previous owner screwed up the wiring and i havent fixed it yet.

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

Pros: its a fun off road truck

Cons: getting it started

Just For The Fun Of It. — I've owned this Bronco for 2 years now and no complaints. Rides great, on and off road, fun to drive, easy to work on. I would never get rid of it, even though it has be rolled and I can't get the top back on.

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

Pros: Great for Off-road. You don't need to be 6 feet of the ground, riding on giant tires, this setup does just fine.

Cons: These things are gas-a-holics.

Good, Stylish, And Rugged. Not A Daily Driver. Average 8mpg On Fresh Rebuilt Motor. — I love this truck. Been in the family forever. Lots of money invested but with the proper head, cam, and intake setup these trucks can have a lot of power. Don't see many of these in good condition driving around anymore.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Style. Ruggedness.

Cons: MPG, Age, Most are abused.

Get One. They're A Blast. — It's big, mean and people get out of your way when they see you coming. It's fun to drive in the mud, rain, snow, whatever Mother Nature can throw at you. It'll pull anything and maneuvers like a mountain goat, a mountain goat on steroids that is. If you want to drive it every day, you're going to need to break open the piggy bank, cause it doesn't get much over 10 MPG, on a very good day. But the fun you'll have driving this monster is worth every penny.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's big and mean looking.

Cons: Nothing, it's top notch in every aspect.

Awesome Utility Vehicle, Not Your Average Suv... — Flat out, one of my all time favorite vehicles to own and drive, nothing gets in your way and everything gets out of your way when they see you coming. Extreme amounts of power from the fully built 400M, complete with a mile Crane cam, Edelbrock intake, Holley 4bbl carburator and Hedman headers and true dual exhaust. The stock interior is complete except for a couple of hard to find seat trim pieces, but give me some time and I'll find them. Gas mileage is around 10MPG when tuned so you better not be on a strict budget, but it's worth every penny that you'll spend filling up the tank. The removeable top makes daytrips through the countryside a blast, just try not to get cought on a downpour, but even if you do, just let it air dry for a couple of days and you're good to go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's mean and fun all in one convenient package.

Cons: You better have some gas money.

Bronco — My bronco is one of the old school broncos. It was built solid. It runs great and performs very well in any type of weather. I would reccomend this vehicle to anybody who likes to get wherever they want to go.

Pros: runs good, looks great, and will take you anywhere you want to go

Cons: Very cold blooded in winter and a lot of power to get tickets with

A Beast Of A Machine — 1978 Bronco, 400ci engine, Holley 4bbl carb on it, straight-pipes, headers. My god, a gassguzzling monster that would get you to the beer store in a real hurry.

Pros: Gorgeous retro styling, bigger than any of todays SUV's, and far more powerful, and infinately more durable. Loud, but a power loud. I set of ricer's car alarms in this thing, just idling.

Cons: Gas mileage. It'd pass anything but a gas station, I got like 7 miles per gallon out of it, as opposed to my fiero, which gets like 45mpg.

These Trucks Are Beasts! — I have a 78' Bronco Custom of my own, and its the toughest frame and body i've ever seen and drove 4-wheelin. i took it 4-wheelin a few months ago and accidently flipped it, it didn't hurt it or me a bit. barely even a scratch on the body! 351m/400 33.12-50 mud kings and a three inch lift. it will pull anything!
