Oil cap stuck.

My 94 with a 351w needs about a quart, but I cannot get this damn cap off.

Is this supposed to be a two piece? Any advice on how to remove it would be great!!

Once you get that cap off, find an original. That's not the original cap....

Will do. Is there a site in particular that has them for a good price? Or should I just pick one up at the junk yard?

Probably just snag one at the boneyard. I've just checked Jeffs Bronco Graveyard and didn't see any there.

I've found an oil filter wrench will fit between the recesses of the aftermarket cap and usually take them off with no problem should you have to reuse it

There are thousands of them in the junkyards - Ford used the same 710 cap on just about everything for many years.
