Autozone carrys Motorcraft spark plugs, MSD cap and rotor I forget what is their premium Wire set. Replace ALL parts and fluids that need replacing....kinda hard to tell from here.

While some parts at the "Zone" are suspect, to say stay out of there is extreem. Many of the parts they sell are the same brand as the others. They sell Moog and high quality wires and plugs. I dont like my local Zone because of service. But I will buy a Moog ball joint at the Zone before Napa any day because I can get two for the price that Napa charges.

Jegg's and Summit are great for prices. Find everything in a kit is the cheapest (wires, cap, rotor, coil). Autolite plugs are sold about everywhere.

I got the Jegg's brand 48,000 V coil and 8 mm wires and am happy with them. I will see if they last. Ford motorsport is better for quality if price is not an issue.

If you don't know when your tranny was last serviced, I'd plan on a new filter, gasket, and fluid. While the fluid is drained I'd add a tranny cooler and flush the lines and also add a oil pan drain plug while you are in there. Your tranny is the most expensive single component of your Bronco, so better safe than sorry. You can find good plenty of good used motors for about $300, but good luck finding a good 4wd e40D for that.

Ford racing wires and motorcraft plugs, cap, and rotor. The zone sells some motorcraft, but rockauto has a much better price.

I do know from first hand experience. Summit will match Autozone, but Autozone will not match the internet Summit.

You can also price compare at Amazon. Most everything that RockAuto has can be found at Amazon, including Motorcraft parts (and other good name brands). Amazon usually beats RockAuto pricing and a lot of parts come with free Super Saver shipping.

Excellent point. I found my superwinch locking hubs on amazon. Didn't know the seller, called summit they price matched the part. The amazon dealer had free shipping---said so in the ad. Summit matched the price to equal free shipping. Worked out well.

yo,
I agree!
too get my Ford parts via AMAZON; they are VG at delvy and esp pricing; I bought a Genuine $150.00 Motorcraft DPFE Sensor for $50.00 with free shipping and no sales tax; Local dealers wanted 150.00 + sales tax

same price & discount for a Motorcraft Idle Air Control (IAC)

Or is in a hurry; check prices from FORD @ http://www.fordparts.com/
best way is to have the VIN available and search that way.
Get the Ford PN
Then use the Buyer's Guide for other years/Models that have that part for a yard search; ensure that the short version pn is applicable

For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;
http://www.mypartshop.com/
Select All Parts
year, etc, then FORD TRUCK

Defective Parts Listing

"...Any altenators from Advance have been junk..." by bbctruckz @ http://fullsizebronco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=184839&page=2

"...AC accumulator from Napa/Autozone/Advance. All have the same part number. some aren't anywhere close to fitting. I finally got one that was close but the bracket has to be modified. Again same part number. They're listed under different brands for each store.
part number is 33091. All have the same picture IIRC..." by pfun41 @ http://fullsizebronco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=184839&page=3


BWD MAP Sensors from advancel
Frying MAP I have gone through 3 MAP sensors within 6 months.. seems like they were not reading right

Update on problem with the new MAP from NAPA everything seems to be working good going 3 weeks now. Only a little hesitation at start up and acceleration.
