I purchased the '95 Bronco new from the dealer and have driven it for 11 years (9 of those years were daily 50 mile commutes) without any major mechanical issues. I pull a 21' Kenner Center Console and on occasion a lowboy and tractor. The truck has the 302 V8 (5L) with the 5 speed manual (5 gear OD) I replaced the clutch assembly in 2003, but other than that only normal service maintenance and tires have been required. The vehicle averages about 14-15 miles per gallon. I still own the vehicle and am currently rigging it for a flat tow behind my motor home. At 17000 miles to-date, I kind of wish there was a comparable Ford vehicle on the market now.
Standard transmission, rubber floor mats, durable upholstery. Good running gear with the Dana front end
Radial arm bushings need replacing a little too often. I've added a heat shield to the passenger side bushing to protect it from catalytic converter heat. I preferred manual front hubs so I changed from automatic within the first 6 months.
