I just bought this in order to get me through the recent Colorado blizzards. It has done its job thus far. Its 302 has 170,000 miles and it runs very smooth. I have had no problems getting through the snow drifts. It has WAY more room in it than I am used to.
I like the room inside of it. It does not matter that I have been driving over rough snow and ice--because there is so much room inside. 170,000 miles on a domestic engine? This thing is a miracle on wheels. It was well maintained and runs extremely smooth. It is my 4x4 battle tank!
I have not had time to look at the suspension as of yet--with 170,000 on it- I am sure that I will find some issues. This Bronco is bare bones--but I could not have been more lucky in finding it.
