1987 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer 351M from North America
I love my Bronco
Have had many problems with the engine. Had it rebuilt once, oil pump replaced twice.
The Bronco was great for the first few years.
However since the engine started to go bad at about 70000 miles, it has been one problem after another.
It has been sitting for the past 10 years; I'm thinking about restoring it.

1987 Ford Bronco XL 351 from North America
Wish I had bought two!
Transmission replaced in 1994.
Muffler replacement in 1997.
I bought the Bronco brand new in 1987 living in Connecticut. It got a lot of four wheel drive use due to the snowy winters. Drove from Ct. to South Carolina often until we moved here. It is still running OK.
The Bronco gets 13 mpg, OK for 1987, tough in 2008.
I am revamping the Bronco, tune up (last one 77,000 miles ago. Tailgate rusting, but original dealership still open, and recently stated if I get it back to Ct., they will give me a new one. I will probably be buried in the truck when the time comes.

I agree with what you wrote. I am a new owner of an old 87 Bronco. I've had it for one month. I was a die hard GMC fan. Now I am in love with this truck; it was the best vehicle I have ever bought.
A lot of the rattle, believe it or not, comes from the motor.. Just tighten the mounts down and the the rattle should dissipate. Also, it could be that the pulleys are a little off balance, but that is not often the case.
