Re: Maybe Getting a New Bronco, good price?
I got a question. What are the differences between a tailgate for an '85 and one on the '90? I got a guy who can get me one for my '85 for $100. Be great if it would fit the new one. Yes, I did mean auto locking hubs. It is not pushbutton 4wd, but autolock hubs. I am trying to sell my current Bronco, and even if I can I will go no higher then $4000. I went out looking again today for a Bronco and found a '91 XLT 351, but it was gawd awful ugly I think. Had a clean, but ugly, red interior, front bench seat, small passenger car tires, and faded paint and they were asking $8,500 for it. Kinda makes the one I am looking at seem cheap. Is 170K miles on a 5.8L engine alot for that big of an engine? I mean, mine has lasted 266K miles, but is starting to go and I want to get rid of it soon while its still running. Why the newer gas tank? What size does it have stock? I would like to get about a 40 gal. tank if I need a new one. Thanks
P.S. I live in North Platte, NE. CA is a little bit far just to buy a truck. What do you think shipping would cost from CA to Nebraska?
