    Why Settle For The Rest When You Can Have The Best — i have owned to bronco full sized and a bronco 2. i love all broncos they are by far the best truck out their. i will say the only place that ford messed up was when they stopped making broncos with solid axle front ends.

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

    Pros: their the best

    Cons: if you are an idiot

    Junk — i bought this truck for 500 bucks put 300 into it for a new starter and flywheel. and after all that it still took two people to start it, one person hitting the starter with a hammer and the other person turning the key. this truck was a complete waste of my money.

    Pros: removable top

    Cons: everything else

    87 5.0 — It is a Rust Bucket, but the 5.0 runs great. It came to me with quite a bit of problems but i like it a lot despite its faults. holes in the flloor, wipers dont work, no back glass, gas is really hard to put in without coming back out. She aint pretty but she runs great and seems like it will be a lot of fun in the long run. especially for five hundrer dollars

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: rough and tough and runs great

    Cons: has lived a rough life and shows it throughout

    Broncho — its alright. its rocking the ford 302 5.0l V-8 backed by the all powerful 4 speed with a granny gear 1st. Topping off all the raw power is a complete power package. power everything! it even has cruise control. Epic, i know

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

    Pros: Tranny, engine

    Cons: stupid transfercase gaurd gets stuck on everything

    Fun Off Roader. Not A Primary Vehicle — It was a mudder. Reasonably good for the street as well. Handled well for its size but used gas like no tomorrow. Very durable and maintainence was frequent but cheap. Easy to do in your driveway. Good first car to work on yourself.

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

    Pros: Can crush other cars

    Cons: 9 mpg

    Amazing Off Road Truck. — This here is a man's truck, and is completely amazing. A good old truck to off road with. It's great. I couldn't want anything else.

    Pros: Awesome off road vehicle. Big, and spacious. Big engine.

    Cons: Heavy, and a bit of a gas guzzler.

    I Beat The Tar Out Of That Truck And It Took All The Abuse. — this bronco also had a 4.9 300 in line six cyl. with a 4 spd.sold it to a friend 4-5 years ago with 515 000 kms with no major issues and its still running well,all i did to it was change the front and rear bearing in the trans and a few seals and the tips of the fork in the transfer case and the front drive shaft.the rest was just normal stuff.unstopable off roader,not that much power but you cant kill the 300 and 4 spd.this motor and trans combo will stand up to anyting u can throw at it.

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

    Pros: ultimate off roading truck.

    Cons: the 4.9 could use a bit more power.
