87 to 91 where the same.i had an 87.i had the head gasket go around 230 000 kms.a issue with a 4x4 relay and I had to rewire the back window and rear defrost due to wire corrosion,but went on to put 515 000kms on it and it still ran strong when I sold it.it was a good vehicle I had bigger tires and did a lot of off roading,pulled a trailer.it did not have an easy life with me,summer time was great I would take off the top.i would take pins out of door hinges and remove the doors it was great.it does not mean you will have the same issues.overall it was a good truck,like I said I was very hard on it.i also changed the automatic locking hubs for manual locking hubs because the automatic hubs are junk.


My dad had a 1990 Bronco XLT, and the high beam button went bad, however it wasn't hard to replace. My best advice would be to go to the junk yard if you need to find a replacement part.
