doesn't matter, they're both fords [f]










the bronco2 has the wheelbase advantage .... if'n you like pickups just cut the roof off [36]

the B2 has a much shorter wheel base which is almost as good as being taller.

[iagree] BUT the b2 does not have the option of the 4.0l, or a box, and what fun would this world be with no box? [22]

your right it does the only thing that needs to be changed is the computer all the sensors exhaust manifolds motor mounts acessory brackets and bellhousing bolt pattern are the same

a bigger rad is a good idea tho

You have a 2wheel drive and u probably use it as a daily driver. I have a ranger, 2 bronco II's and a fullsize.... easy and cheap as ____ to fix.

go cheer your comments somewhere else ... consdidering your looking to get a toyota becuase everyone tells you they look good. :rolleyes: btw, another easy fix vehicle.

Not sure when the, whats the look good one ... 85ish, toyotas got bigger but i'm just a stupid female.


It all depends what you want the vehicle for, other than wheeling. I have my blazer which is awesome for camping with all the room inside. My friend has a s15jimmy sas'd etc for the same reason. If you need a box for hauling or whatever, theres not much more benifits i wouldn't think.

ya you can get a canopy and sleep under that ... but you can't turn the box heater on, unless its plugin. You're also more vulnerable hehe. I like having the open cab becuase i like to take my dogs out, with the kid and go for walks. I'd rather have them in the cab with me, they lay down on the rear seat when its in there. Yes the fullsize canopy comes off, but hey so does Squishy's B2 :p I wouldn't trade it up for a truck, k maybe if i had the $60grand.


and yes I know these comments are really related to the question but thought i'd just add it hehehehehe

wow is all you can find to rag about is that im a cheerleader?
yea so i was a cheerleader. So what? Just because you have some idea in your head that just because i was a cheerleader means im dumb then theres something wrong. Im not. I have a perfectly good head on my shoulders, i did well in school, i have a good job, and yeah i said cause it looks good.. an 85 yota looks better then an 83 and i dont care if you think its stupid. if you dont like the look of a truck you wouldnt buy it..

I fucking hate the look of mustangs but I want one b.c of whats under the hood. There is alot more to a vehicle than apperance and when ur gonna be beating the shit outta ur truck your not going ot want one that 'looks nice'

forget about a b2 get an early bronco, the top comes right off and they come with small blocks already, pretty easy to convert to fuel injection too! they all come with 9" rear and 66-71 with d30 72-77 d44.

\you paid 10 times more than i paid for a basically rust free b2, not bashin the eb's, there probably my fav 4x4, just saying its normally not in the budget for a wheeler(that your gonna play hard with, plus there arnt many eb's around so why wreck a good one?)

I like Rangers just because I perfer a pick up, but I have a couple buddies with B2s and ther sweet little rigs, easy to upgrade cheap and can be found quite cheap as well. D35 and 8.8 as said before or even just a D35 is a must, bolts right up just have 2 get your driveshaft shortend an inch or so.
