    Overall just a great truck. Its had its moments as any truck would, but after a few years of owning it I regret nothing. It gets around better than any truck my family has owned and Im proud of it. I plan on keeping it for a long time.

    Fun And Rare Ride To Drive — I always wanted one of these when I was growing up in the 80s and bought one in March '12 when I'm now 37. I paid 2k for it but it needed another 2500 so be sure to find one looking and running good otherwise you'll be putting lots of dollars into it. I'm in Florida but the previous owners used it around the beach and salt water left on vehicles wrecks them up too over time. The lackluster engine almost has aggressive drivers hit me in the rear when traffic lights turn green. It sounds great though once it gets going and is a joy to drive. They're very rare these days and many people check it out. Best turning radius on any vehicle I've ever driven!

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

    Pros: Amazing turning radius! Comfy seats, roomy.

    Cons: Only seats 4, 5 speed is slow to shift and power up

    Luv Mu Big Red Bronco Ii!! — I can go in the snow thru the mountains if I wan too, can pull a trailer behind it, back seats lay down for more storage. Like I said I have driven this truck for 20 years bought it two years old, it has 260,000 miles on it and I will keep it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I bought this in 1991 used, been driving it over 20 years. I got hit by a car in 2003, put a little line dent 4inches on my truck, the whole front of the car that hit me in the street totaled!! I feel safe driving it, turns quick for parking, sits up high, and will keep driving this 4w five speed truck!!! :)

    Cons: Turn over risk high, so go slow on sharp curves, hard to get in the back made for two.

    Great Little Suv — I like the way it handles, I like the fuel economy, and it is very easy to maintain. Front seats are comfortable but back are somewhat comfortable but not easy to get in and out off. Braking to me seems very soft. Overall I give it three stars out of a possible five star

    Pros: Looks and style are great for a small SUV, Maintenance is very easy, Handling is great..turning radius is very small and it is very easy to park, reliability...mine has always started....

    Cons: No a lot of power..back seat is not easy to get into and not all that comfortable....not a great family car....cargo capacity is not all that great with back seats in upward position

    Buy It — the performance of this machine is good overall, its good offroad and goes 0-60 not bad for a small 6 cyl. build quality is as poor as any other american made vehicle, i like the appearance of it but maybe no one else does, cost of ownership HAHA!! have another jeep for parts, dont bother changing oil i just let it go below add then throw some new stuff in, Motomaster of course ;).... but it is VERY fun to drive offroad and i would recomend it.

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

    Pros: fun, appearance

    Cons: poor quality

    Bii Potential — Many aspects of this vehicle are excellent, but it's a total trade-off design. Good to use for a custom effort. I have built it into a very capable truck, and there's more to come. V-8, auto tranmission, portal axles, and 40" tires

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: size

    Cons: Ford had a real opportunity to make a great vehicle, but in typical Detroit fashion, bowed to idiots

    Great — best car ever! reliable, tough, and great fun. i drive it everyday to and from work, but also use it to go camping and run it through some pretty tough 4 wheeling trails, works great in snow, and in all weather. have make improvements and it still runs great and strong

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

    Pros: reliable, mine has 230.000 miles on it and engine, tranny, and body and interior look and run great and are original

    Cons: not a people carrier

    I Love My Truck. — I just put in NGK Iridium IX Plugs and NGK Spark Plug Wires, I also put in a K&N stock replacement air filter and a Magnaflow exhaust. I will be replacing the suspension on it pretty soon cause it needs it.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive and it looks and sounds great.

    Cons: There is no reasons to avoid it.

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