I Love It — its a lot of fun but it can be hard to deal with sometimes because its top heavy and the transfer case will go into nutral sometimes when you hit a bump but mine is a 1985 ford bronco 2 v6 4x4 with a 5 speed trany so i can push start it if my battery dies

Pros: cheap and easy to fix lots of fun to drive both on and off road looks cool with aftermarket rims and has plenty of room for 12's in the back

Cons: hard to find some parts for it top heavy

Overall Is A Good Vehicle, Seems To Be Reliable Too. — The power on this vehicle is decent, it can handle a load very well too. Handling is not great, but it is an suv. The front seats are comfortable but the back seats leave something to be desired, even for a 24 year old vehicle, it rides very smooth too, it is also comfortable on your wallet with mine getting 18-20mpg if driven relatively easy (keeping speed around 55-60), the worst I've gotten is 15. Overall its a good weekend vehicle or even a daily driver, it can also work as a utility/tow vehicle. I also think it is a good looking vehicle.

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

Pros: Good style, decent power, comfortable, good offroading, pulls good.

Cons: Handling is not to good, back seat is not real comfortable.

Sweet Off Road Vehicle — Very top heavy. Very smooth going down the road. 4-wheel drive is kind of weak but its old so who cares. Great gas mileage. Lots of fun to play around in just be careful and don't get stuck. Brakes are amazing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great mileage

Cons: Top Heavy

If You Can Get One For Cheap Do It... By Brandon
