Ok well i found a 78 bronco ranger xlt by my house not sure on the size of lift but new ford 9'' diff witth 4.56 gears. rebuilt 400, c6 auto tranny, np205 transfer case. sounds good running BUT! the front diff is blown he was asking 3800 got him down to 3000 cash is it worth it or should i just keep looking?[16]

if it is rust free and fairly strait its worth it, but if you want just a good beater you could find one cheaper if you look around a bit more

If your into a little newer Bronco there is one you can probally get over on the island for around 2500 it looks pretty good.

OK went and looked at it again and drove it

Body is in really good shapre dont see hardly any rust just a dent in the tailgate no biggy, Souds mean as hell and sweet to drive has soo much power and it only has 93000 km on it!!!! and from what he said its abit better on gas then my old bronco and it has a 400 compared to the dinky 302

thats why it`s better the 302 is too small a motor so youre using that gas pedal alot
