Yo Willy,
WELCOME!
We have a 96 5.0 & E4OD too; bought it new. Rust is tge major issue.

Determine if speed control, if equipped, recall work completed by a dealership. Call local dealer or register and view status @ https://owner.ford.com ; or @ https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ ... 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."
To confirm current status, use this guide by jowens1126 @ https://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/23-technical-write-ups/457065-93-94-96-cruise-control-recalls-repair.html#post6530073
° note that the 93 recall is different than the 94-96 recall.

Thanks for all of the info, it's been a very slow process and have been hitting alot of rough bumps. I'll definitely look into all of this as soon as possible.
Rust is much worse than expected unfortunately...but it is what it is.
