    but the bronco was based on a full size truck like the F150. the expedition was also based on the F150. just like the explorer was based on the ranger.

    No way. That thing's a street queen. Real broncos look better with rock rash.

    ACtually, the one in the pic is a restored model. It was sold by a guy who rebuilds jeeps and other stuff. Cool business actually. I almost got a jeep from him but decided to save the $ and get something more impressive in a year.
    BTW, I dropped off a friend at the local HS this mornign and saw that some rich kid has his parents buy and reconstruct an army issue Hummer... makes me sick... too much money!

    I guarantee it, that the Bronc' in that picture goes Off-road. 3 1/2 lift, flares, 33's, 44 up front, 9 inch in back. Chances are that he has the best lift for it either the James Duff or Wild Horses. All of these go off road. You guys should see a stock Bronc. (235's) off-road. The best 4x4 ever right there.

    A guy that lives up the road from me has 4 67 era Broncos, completely restored to original condition, they look a little funny with the tiny tires that they have, but it's all cool. I don't think he takes any off road.

    the bronco would be much sweeter if they would take off the gay running boards. grandmas dont need to be able to get in.

    the new bronco that is, if you can call a concept new. maybe we will just call it the nonexistant bronco. ford cant afford to make a hardcore car that might not sell. that sucks because they could make some nice ones.
