So as you know I just picked up another Bronco for my wife to use a her daily driver. Considering she drives about 30 miles a week it was a good choice. Her 2006 Jeep Commander with 12K miles is sitting in the driveway locked up and not being driven. Why, well, it's a lemon and it's unsafe to drive. My kids won't even ride in the thing. The Jeep loses power and stalls at highway speeds or just pulling out of the driveway. So, back to the Bronco. When I asked her what she wanted to drive, she chose the Bronco because it's big, safe and would fit my three kids in the back seat. Anyway, she loves the Bronco and the kids couldn't be happier. My neighbors have been dropping by to see who it belongs to. LOL. When I tell them we bought it for less than 5k they lose their minds. :)

Heck I drive mine every day. Even with a Detroit locker in the rear and 35's, I can't imagine driving something else every day. Nice to see a woman that has good taste in vehicles, now where's the pics?

I DD mine. Very reliable, I would take it cross country no problem. Always starts, It's always been a turn-key motor.

Finally got mine road legal this weekend. :rockon Drove it to town to get some parts for the wife's jeep and this morning to work. Damn I love that truck. The two hondas are sitting waiting for me to figure out what's wrong with them and are rapidly approaching getting sold off to fund making the bronco better...

I DD my Bronco, I just put in a new 302 EFI myself due to a dead cylinder on #2 and now it runs great and I just went over 400 miles on the break in.

I have a couple of things to tidy up but I'm very pleased to have it running normally again!

Good Choice ~ :thumbup

I used to DD mine, but decided to stop putting miles on it (not that it really matters with how many are on it...). Coupled with the payment on the Jeep, I think it'd be a hair cheaper to just drive the Bronco... I still alternate em out though. Prolly shouldn't have bought the Jeep, but what the hell....it's fun :toothless

I drive mine everyday. When it is in the shop I drive my wifes bronco.
you can find pics on the link below. I need to get me a new page I no longer belong to The club the link leads too.

Anyhow Mine is sitting on a 6" lift with 37"s and hopefully next summer I will finally be getting my 4:88 gears detroit locker and limited slip front put in. I quit caring about the Gas milage years ago

I figure safty first. To hell with fuel prices.

Mine is no longer a DD. But i still love driving her. Plus it's not a vehicle you normally see on the road anymore. At least around here.
