I just bought a 84'bronco2 about six months ago. So far I have camoflaged it and put another 2.8 motor back in it.
And wanted to put a 3" body lift in it, a 4" spenp. lift, and some mud tires some time this summer.

I have a 1984 Ford Bronco II with just over 100,000 Miles. I love the 4WD in this thing. An old lady owned it and didn't check the oil, well you know the story. Anyway, it has a new motor and the motor only has about 20,000 miles on it tops. I Love my Bronco. I was glad to hear that the 84's are getting a little bit rare. Mine is in perfect condition and I have done many minor things to make it even better. New tires (bigger), a huge stereo system, and much more. I just wanted to put my two cents in on this things. I recommend that everyone who owns one of these drop a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. It helped to get mine back up to par and gave it some lost power back. Plus it gets rid of some of that Engine noise that Bronco's are known for. I have owned two of these Bronco's, an 87 and an 84. I definitely like the carbeurated 2.8L much better. I am getting about 21MPG now after a hefty tune up...

The 1984 Bronco II is a great little truck, especially when equipped with the C5 automatic transmission. There are some problems with the carburetor and ignition that can be remedied rather inexpensively if you know what to do.
I have one, and plan to keep it forever.

On the 1984 2.8 V6, it uses a 2150A carb. If you are having a surging problem, you might want to rebuild the carb. I have a 1984 that I have rebuilt from a dead vehicle, and the carb is the most important part; if is it dirty and the vehicle will not run right, then it's the carb. As for the dashpot, which controls the engine idle at certain times, well just back it off, it is worthless.. To start the Bronco, just press the gas once, then that sets the choke on the fast idle cam on the high step. You should have a idle of approx 2500 rpm. When it warms up, push on gas pedal and it will drop back to idle, which is approx 850 rpm. The choke cap works off of intermittent electric off of the alternator. There is a mark for the choke cap; just line it up with the mark and tighten back down. If the choke cap is not working, get a new one; very important to have one that works, or the fuel mixture will be too rich.. Hope that helps..
