Great 4x4 — Not good on Gas, but, not why I built it. It does play nice in the mud. Looking to fuel inject it later and build some bumpers, might even paint it someday. Broncos have a great turning radius and can compete with the Jeeps.

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

Pros: It's Paid for.

Cons: can't think of any

The 79 Bronco Is Great — The 79 Bronco is a well built truck but does have a few weaknesses. The 205 transfer case and dana 44 and ford 9 axles are built really well. The weakness is the c6 transmission and possibly the 351m/400 engine. The engines are ok but I swapped mine for a 460 out of a truck. The c6 has only 3 speeds and could really use a fourth. Other than that, the truck is great. It looks good with top on or off, you can fit all your friends in it, take it anywhere. A great plus is that if anything breaks on it its easy to fix. Wish ford still made a bronco, Id buy one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, strong drive terrain, take anywhere, do anything in it, parts swap from the trucks

Cons: engine somewhat weak, needs 4th gear in tranny

My Dear Bronco — incredible handling, the ford bronco ranger xlt has the best appearance both interior and exterior but to much comsuption of gas. if you need to repair something that will last at least 5 years before needed again. YOU CAN FEEL LIKE A KING OF KINGS DRIVING THIS CAR

Pros: power

Cons: you have to own a gas station

Bronco — This was my tank pretty much. It had a decent amount of torque, but overall speed it was slow. It had a 351M and a C6 tranny, stock overall except for the 3 inch lift. I loved to listen to the dual exhaust, it sounded throatty as hell. I loved driving it, and I would get tons of looks, cause girls usually don't drive vehicles like this, but my truck fit me to a T.

Pros: lifted, solid build, loved the sound

Cons: slow

4 X 4 — This was sooo much fun to drive.....i loved it! We would drive it on the street, 4x4'in, pullin horse trailers, or snowmobile trailers or motorcycle trailers or boat trailers. It was a real work horse. The only thing that went wrong is that it kept eating rear ends....and it wasn't it's fault. It was HEAVY haulin almost all the time.

Pros: Great in the summer & the winter....very versatile

Cons: Nothing

Another Good Truck — This is a very nice truck. Im giving it the same rating as the F-150. This one hasnt been as reliable as the other one but is definately right up there. It has been beaten on by the previous owner. Very poorly taken care of. Now that its in my hands Its being babied. Lots of new parts and sheet metal. A little love goes a long way. Very cool truck with the top off!

Pros: Great looking, Rides like a dream, Handels great, stops extremely well for an old truck.

Cons: Not the greatest gas mileage
