    I wish! Its a little 2.9 V6 but its a good little truck. I got an awesome deal on it and couldn't pass it up. I might have $2000 into it after new tires, shocks, brakes, and paint (including the initial price).

    Way Back when, I bought an 88 bronco 2 and put in a engine. Had $2000 in it and that very truck is the reason I drive ford trucks this day. I race a chevy but I drive a ford hahaha. I would take that bronco 2 over my 05 explorer anyday of the week.

    Pretty cool. I think these will become more desireable as years go on. They seem to be a bit rare in good running condition, while there's plenty of old rangers still rattling around on the roads. Four Wheeler magazine just did a build of a Bronco II recently and it came out pretty cool.

    Cool, cheap investment.

    When I first got home from the Military I wanted a Ford Bronco 1991 or something so bad.
    I ended up getting an Isuzu Amigo 5 speed instead.

    I have no complaints honestly. I only bought it because it was dirt cheap but its been so reliable that I decided to give it some love. Sure its slow, but it gets decent enough gas mileage and parts are insanely cheap. I'll post an update after I lay some paint down on it.
