It needed body work and paint job.
The oil need checked a little more frequently than other cars.
The electrical system needed rewiring.
The fuel tank was replaced.
The engine blew up on me. It had blown gaskets, cracked pistons, and broken rods.
(The car can be pushed to the limit, just know where the limit is...)
I love this car. At first it was nothing too big to me, then it grew on me. Once I blew the engine, and didn't have it for a while, I realized how great of a car it was.
It can handle off road like none other. My whole family have 4x4 trucks and SUVs, and don't even come close to my B-Dos.
Despite what other reviews say, I think the seats are more comfortable than most cars I've been in.
The cabin is spacious like a living room and is perfect for a sound system. It holds the sound well, and sounds beautiful with a set of 12" subs and aftermarket speakers.
With a stock engine, the acceleration is a little slow, but can be helped with a small amount of tweaking.
This truck is a tank. If you wreck into something, I can guarantee that there is a lot more damage to whatever you hit, than your B2.
I've done 180s in parking lots, and haven't tipped. Maybe it is more possible with a lift kit.
The steering is comfortably loose. I can drive with my pinkie finger if I want. Not to mention, the amazing turning radius makes U-Turns a cinch.
The back seat could be a tad wider, but can still fit 3 people fine.
The viewing range up front is great. Big windshield and barely any blind spots.
Every Bronco II driver knows how good of a car it is. I would recommend this car to anybody. Even when I go into the market for a brand new car, I plan to keep my B-Dos, even if I just use it for offroad riding in the mountains.
