My first but sure not to be my last post. I’m in northern Rhode Island and my kid, who is pretty good with a wrench and not afraid to get dirty decided to buy a 1990 Bronco that has spent its life in New England winters. This week we are removing the conventional plow and frame, hopefully replacing the neutral safety switch, and ripping out parts of the interior and the carpeting to see just how much floor replacement needs to take place. I’m convincing myself this is going to be fun!

Is that your kid in the pic? If so be damn proud as my daughter doesn’t even want to check her oil! Welcome to the madness, now open up your wallet turn it inside out and empty it...... you now own a Bronco empty walleted and maxed credit cards till you fix all the little annoying things that break on trucks of this “cough cough” vintage. Keep us updated and remember it might be easier to replace the whole tub with a JY body then spend months repairing salted Swiss cheese. If you need any info on specific shiza search it and if you come up short ask in a new thread for each issue. Take lots of pictures cuz we all live truck porn.

That's her, she negotiated the deal herself before she even had her license. She just did the brakes and rotors in my Jeep TJ and she's putting her shopping list together for her Bronco, so at least she likes doing the work. I've kicked around getting a new tub, she says she wants to learn to weld and do body work, but if we rip out the interior she may think differently. The frame is surprisingly very solid.

Congrats and welcome! I think it's great when kids want to learn about cars and how to work on them. Good luck with the project!

I can only envy you. My 13 year old daughter makes me drop her off at the back of the parking lot at school... because she hates my OLD Bronco. Really sucks because I bought two Bronco's so my kids could ride to High school in style. She also refuses to learn to drive a Manual? I had to buy a 2011 Ford Focus so she can have a Ford as a first vehicle. In what Universe is a Focus cooler than a fullsize Bronco?

I still have a 10 year Boy who get's it. We take the Bronco everywhere and he thinks it's the coolest ride in town.

Dam buddy... New England winters for 20 years. Going to be little surprises everywhere. At least you have bonding time for the next 20 years.

Welcome! I too bought my first bronco early, a 94 at age 14.

It was the coolest ride in the parking lot. Until a buddy got one, then there were two of us cool cats
