In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I'd drive, too. Looks clean enough to believe the odometer hasn't rolled over. 4.0l. I would prefer an m50d. But the auto would be ok. I don't like the price.

Looks pristine. I'd Drive it. I also think the 90's ended just ten years ago. lol

When I was a kid in the 90's,( I was born in '77) the 70's seemed like a hundred years ago. Now MY 90's are todays kid's 70's.

Try telling anyone under 20 that you grew up without a cell phone and they crap their pants and think you must have roamed the earth with dinosaurs...

My 12 yo daughter calls the 90's "The Olden Days" and thinks we had black and white TV shows. Whenever she asks what did we do back then, I tell her, " We went outside and "actually" talked and interacted with our friends."

Price isn't horrible for what it is, I see some minty looking rigs for over $10k. Probably still a little high but more realistic than some.

Old rangers in good shape seem to be steadily creeping up in value. That's not really a salt belt truck though so still high to me... if a truck in that condition was for sale in upstate NY the price would be more reasonable.

What's really wacky is the prices people are asking for Bronco II's these days. I was having a look on various auto websites last night when I came across this truck. I found a handful of pretty clean first and second gen Rangers, and most were somewhat reasonably priced, but the cleaner Bronco II's are just insanely priced. Like, you wonder how much crack the owner smoked before listing it for sale.. Most of the Bronco II's I found were around the 10K to 12K mark. Just insane.

I just found a nice '84 BII on Facebook for $800.

Not really feeling like dealing with another 2.8 or doing another swap yet though.

People will pay that much... That's the problem. :no2:

Most die hard auto enthusiasts would rather buy one cheap that needs work and build it themselves. Or buy new and keep it for 40 years. Not bashing the guys willing to spend 12k on a bronco 2 but you'll never see me pay more than a grand for one. It is literally just a 35 year old little truck of no rarity or speciality.

The 2.8 would be a blessing compared to the 2.9

As long as it didn't have the A4LD. That would be my only concern if I was paying those high asking prices. Which I'm not. lol

I've already got 3 Bronco II's that I could take my pick from to make an offroad rig. Which I may decide to do in the future. I've caught myself looking at used Ecoboost engines online, so it'll probably happen eventually.
