Picking up a 1996, hopefully today. Needs a little floor pan work and has a hellacious exhaust leak, also has 237k. Runs great, original paint. Cheap IMO. 5500. Can't find anything in anywhere near as good of shape around here. Not planning on doing much with it.

Yo Tony,
Welcome back and Congratulations on acquiring the very best year Big Bronco known to men, women, children and canines!

ASAP, find out if speed control recall work, if equipped was completed. If you still have concerns about Recalls, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship Center:
US: 800-392-3673 | CA: 800-565-3673
Note: 3673 spells "FORD" on phone keys
For the hearing- or speech-impaired: Please contact the Telecommunication Relay Service by dialing 71
... 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 @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than the 94-96 recall.

I think cab visors are cool too.
They should visually line up as an extension of the rain gutters over the doors.

Nice looking truck by the way and the price seems somewhat reasonable in today's world of excessive everything.

The gentleman I’m buying it from said it is drooping down. I always wanted a bronco with a visor. He also thinks it’s leaking.

It looks to me like it's fasteners were drilled in the wrong location, causing it to look drooped. If you were to position it properly, I think you'd find that the holes were supposed to be drilled a bit further back. Solution is to weld the holes up and redrill in proper position, if that is indeed the case. If it's leaking, it's all got to come apart anyway.

The reason for my guess is that when I was positioning my visor for drilling, I marked the holes, stood back, saw the same droop yours is exhibiting, repositioned and saw the same result with the mounting hole marks.

You could probably get away with just using a high grade natural cure clear silicone to cover the improperly placed holes or use some of those plastic "christmas tree" type pins (for interior panel installations) slathered in silicone. They would be under the visor and hardly visible.

The manufacturers recommend that the newly drilled holes have a nickle ($.05) sized glob of silicone placed at fastener locations between the truck roof and the bottom of the visor, then some silicone on the fastener before sending it in. Clean up the mess and install a plastic cap over the mechanical fastener, painted to match the visor.

It doesn't look like a Lund visor.
Maybe it is one of those Summit Racing visors.

This may be true. The underside of it looks unfinished, so raw fiberglass. LOL

Congratulations on the find, although I think my aging is making me think $5500 is still too expensive for a high-mile rig. BTW, if you want to change the grille and headlamp surrounds, say, painted to match the body, I have a set for sale, $250. PM me for pics/details, or email me at [email protected], if you are interested.

Yeah it is expensive. But no around here. I have been looking for years and everything around this price has been beat to hell
