The 1st Bronco that I owned was a 1985
xlt with a 351. This was one helluva
truck. After I sold it, I came across
a 1996 xlt with only 55k actual miles.
This truck was extremely clean and I
bought it on the spot. I use it during
the winter months to get in to quite
muddy areas. During the summer months,
I pull a large boat with no problems.
The truck is quite comfortable for long
Replace the automatic hubs with a good
set of manual hubs (warn). Increase
horsepower to 250.
