Some 33" A/Ts would look awesome.

Good luck with it. I like Bronco's.


Edit: How come I don't see a Transfer case. Is it 2wd?

Looks like it'd do well in a police chase.

Agreed, but I like that this will be decent on gas.

I like the stick, but like everyone else, starting out in 1st is tricky.  I'm having a harder time getting used to the clutch than I thought I would.  I have experience using clutches with a dirt bike, but I guess using your hand, and using your feet are different.

Yeah, a lift and some bigger tires would be cool.  And yes it is a 2wd.

Thats true for the foot thing, I ride quads and working a clutch with your hand is much easier IMO, I'd say you have a lot more control, but I didn't stall or anything like that, just takes some practice to get a smooth start. But you don't have to worry, in the winter you can just spin the tires on snow to get moving

Why would you get that to drive around in the winter? That isn't going to get your around any better than your other ride.

This might not be great, but anythings better than a car like mine.  Plus this will help me to keep miles off of my car and keep it out of the winter.

I like broncos and that one is pretty clean. Good luck learning clutch, after a few hours you'll get it. Starting out on your first steep hill is gonna be tricky though

I'd say at most, it'll take you a week of occasional driving to be able to drive consistantly without stalling. You already understand the feeling of the car "pulling" now you just need to get the balance right.

Looks to be in good condition. I wish you well, because every Bronco I've ridden in has been a piece.

However, yours looks very clean and well maintained.

Certain clutches are harder than others. My car has an easy clutch especially cause it has enough power to pull it's own weight. Just don't dump the clutch and it will go. You will also get a feel for the car and you will be able to stomp on the clutch to keep from stalling.
