If any of the Bronco's are 78-79's, then I would consider them. The rest of them I wouldn't for these reasons:
-I don't like small 4x4's that much, so that cuts out all of the pre-78 ones. Little bigger than a Jeep. To small for me.
-The TTB (Twin Traction Beam) front axle on 80-96 Broncos are a nightmare. It can be made to work, but the solid front axle on a stock K5 is much simpler and works from the start. TTB is notorious for eating tires alive, a pain to lift properly (yet not as much as the Chevy IFS[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]), and just being rather "loose" overall.
-Ford's fuel injection sucks. Overly complicated, a mass of wires, not all that waterproof, etc. Their carbs are okay.
-Their engines are a nightmare. Cleveland, Windsor, Modified, ummmm......there's another one, all of it different and nothing is interchangeable between them. They don't swap parts like GM's do, transmissions don't interchange between small blocks and big blocks, etc. GM stuff is very, very interchangeable.
There's more, but I think you get the point. My uncle is retired from Ford, I do like several Ford products (not many since 1979 though), and I've seen some very capable and well modified Ford vehicles. However, for cheapness, reliability, ease of maintenance/modification, and strength, you can't beat a GM truck.
