Yo Juan,
Welcome and Congratulations!
ASAP, find out if speed control, if equipped, recall work completed by dealership. Call local dealer or register and view status @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) ... have VIN ready.

See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

@Juan94BR Welcome! I’m new here too but the folks here make one feel welcomed. Like family! Anything Bronco related is covered here.

Congrats on your new Bronco. Check the date codes of the tires. With so few miles, unless they were recently replaced, they may be unsafe.

Welcome! What engine do you have?

You should check the steering linkages for torn dust booties, and excess wear. Grabbing hold of the tie rods, they will twist a bit, so that's normal.

I would eventually dig in and replace all the wheel bearings. Ideally, you'd do this while changing the brakes. The rear axle shafts should be checked for grooves where they ride on the bearings too.

Hello all!!

Congrats on the new ride 👍 I'm gonna say Battery cables and grounds, new clamps, and if u plan on a lot of accessories make sure you have a 3G alternator... Since I had a lot of starting issues with my 82 from a lot of simple crap (like old undersized wires, old splices, old grounds) that's generally where I like to start...

Also... With Calypso green n cream I vote chrome bumpers 👍 will look classy... Unless you go flat paint, then maybe black would work...

welcome!

i always advocate a visual inspection to make sure it's safe to drive. then drive the hell out of it before replacing parts. it will tell you where to start.

Change all the fluids, top it off with fresh fuel, and run some good (techron, redline, etc) fuel injector cleaner.

You'll be hard pressed to find broncos in the jy but they'll still be littered with f150s

For the most part, you'll find that a bronco from the cab forward is interchangeable with an f150. In some cases regarding suspension, the 2wd f150 is not but a 4wd f150 is.

Oh that's good one of the other projects I was thinking was changing the entire interior color but that's way down the line
