This is a generally well-made vehicle, with the exception of the engine. It is comfortable, and has plenty of power. The one glaring problem is the engine. There are many Bronco II's (and Rangers) out there with the original 2.9 V6 still running in good condition. However, there are also many, many others where the engine has died. The modes of failure are very consistent, and usually take the routes of either cracked cylinder heads, or failing oil pressure due to worn-out camshaft bearings. Having examined first hand these failure modes, and also having seen Ford's original in-dash oil pressure gauges for various model years, I have come to a conclusion. As an auto mechanic with 12 years experience, it is my opinion that around 1989, Ford realized they had a serious problem with oil pressure in the 2.9 V6 engine, and took steps to cover it up. Ford made changes in the operation of their oil pressure gauge on Bronco II's that, in my opinion, were an effort to delay or possibly prevent the consumer from realizing that there was a problem with low oil pressure. Not all "B2's" had this problem, but enough of them did. In my opinion, this was a sleazy trick on Ford's part, and really the only negative (albeit a big one) for such a good vehicle. I've replaced the engine in my truck, and I still love it, but I think Ford did a great disservice to the public and to the reputation of the Bronco II.
