I had one, an 87', got rid of it when it needed the second motor.Get yourself one of these. It has 287,000 miles, same engine, transmission and trasfer case. I have done the ball joints only once.
I've had an 83 and a 78 Bronco. They were pretty good machines. I will say that the variable ventury carb on the 83 was a piece of crap. The 78 was pretty good outside of the front brakes. They do make a sharp ride done up right. Yours by the way is done up fine! Nice ride.
