New to me 1994 Bronco

I've built several JK wranglers, but I was tired of seeing them everywhere and I wanted something that would be more of a project. I sold my 2016 Wrangler, and picked up a 1994 XLT Bronco with a few mods already on it(The way I am most of it will end up being replaced.)
In the two weeks I've had it I have replaced both window motors, the rear window switch, attempted to fix my A/C(Previous owner installed the expansion valve backwards, so who knows what else is wrong with it.) I fixed a issue where the previous owner installed the Throttle Position sensor backwards causing the 5.8l to bog down every time I hit the throttle. I still have a slight hessitation between 2-3k RPM's but it drives much better! I temporarily removed the 35 from the stock carrier(It was causing way to many rattles.)
Who knows what else I will find backwards the more I dig into it...

Yo TTEChris,
Welcome!
Looks good!

Check with local dealer to see if cruise control, if equipped recall was performed, have VIN ready. "Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."

When you have time, fill out your Bronco Info with year, engine size, transmission type, transfer case type (manual or electric shift), locking hub type (automatic or manual) info & major mods such as a Lift, etc. for better responses.

Jimmyz - It has 132k miles on it, we settled for $6500. (Getting into it now, I think I would have offered less.)
miesk5 - Thanks for the info, I'll be sure to check it out and fill out the rest of my vehicles info.
Fitzy - You would be suprised at some of the broncos I looked at in TX! This one has the usual rust spot in the rain gutters that every one I looked at had, but other than that I didn't find any other obvious rust. I ordered new window/tailgate seals to prevent water from getting in those areas(This Bronco must have been garage kept most of its life b/c the seals were shot and there is no rust in the tailgate/door panels.)

Same here, still have my '13 JK, and nearly stock TJ that my youngest daught drives. I did build a CJ with a 350M.

New to Broncos, but know it will be fun. I love how few of these are around.
