1984 Ford Bronco II XLT 2.8 from North America
I wanna nother one!!!
Replaced Power Steering Pump.
I purchased My Bronco II for $400.00 dollars because the carb was bad and the local mechanic told the lady, "all that black smoke means the engine is about to blow". I swear I told her he was mistaken. She did not believe me and I bought it.
At 123,000 miles I replaced the tires with larger 235/75R15 tires. I was very happy with the performance of this truck until then. While I am not dissatisfied with the performance now the change in size made a huge difference in acceleration. It does get better fuel mileage and I will not be re-gearing it.
The fact that it has solid lifters is a pain, but not too difficult to live with as Valve Adjustment is not that hard. I thought that was a thing of the past.
My Bronco II has never made me walk and is terrific in the snow and mud. I love this thing.
I spend a lot of time on the road driving between International Falls, MN (where I live) and St. Paul, MN, and have had no major problems on the road. Only problem on the road has been a radiator cap that failed and allowed the coolant recovery tank overflow.
There is no rust on this truck except for a few paint-chips up front that have a little rust in them and the front bumper.
I replaced the headliner with a flamed one that I did myself. It really looks good and gets allot of comments.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
