My Favorite. — I love my B2. It's very reliable. It's clean. Not fast but very torqey. Took me to Florida and back (excess of 4k miles) Has all the features of a lot of new cars and a couple extra. Overall my favorite car I've owned.

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

Pros: Fun

Cons: Can Easilly Be Rolled Over

Not For Wife And Family; Especially With Manual Transmission — great power and fuel economy ( I had the 2.9L v6 with CV joint driveshaft to rear) Thing I didn't like was the short wheelbase (easy to spin in 2x4) and clutch was very touchy, since it and transmission were both designed for the ranger. The shorter driveshaft to rear diff made for lots of kickstarts!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: for a 4x4, reliability and fuel is great- lots of power and visibility!

Cons: easy to spinout in 2x4 on icy roads/parking lots

My Little Bundle Of Joy — Well Acceleration of the infamous 2.9 V6 blows and the top speed is another thing to be desired. Handling.. well you just tell me, no more talking turns at 30 MPH and no more drifting.. sorry tuners this is not the bundle of joy for you. Over all Ford did a pretty good job of making the Bronco's sister a pretty good little truck, I love it and so do many others.. or maybe thats just the compact derby runners?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mudding is easy.. no heavy weight to hold you down.

Cons: All of Fords typical problems in the late 80's.. Rust koles and leaks.

1st Vehicle — It was not sturdy, just something start me out and get me around. It was an Eddie Bauer Edition so it was fancy for back in the day.

Pros: Got me from point A to B

Cons: High roll-over risk.

Motor Rattles — the only thing i dont like is when you frist crank it, there is a lifter rattle. rebuilt the engine with all new parts but it still does it for about 30 sec. to 1&half mins.

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

Great in snow, terrible power, terrible gas mileage, and has a high roll over risk only because of small stock tire size. but if you put a truck tire on like a 235 or 30's it will get you anywhere. Read More
