So I think I might pick up another vehicle...lol

I've been debating on spending the money to fix my old ranger and get it running here lately. Found a local guy with a 92 Bronco that is looking for a trail toy and he likes the little truck...talked him into a trade plus payoff on his bronco.

So the question is...what do you think a 92 Bronco (full size) in good shape with a 302, auto, manual hubs, and brand new 33's would be worth?

Just what I need...another vehicle in the driveway. Good part is it's alot easier to sell something that's running than not...

He's owned the truck for 3 months, is wanting something he can build for a trail rig. Pics to come tonight or in the morning, said he's gonna get them as soon as he can.

Re: So I think I might pick up another vehicle...lol

have you seen the truck... if it doesnt look abused go for it.

i bought a truck... 98 gmc 6in lift 35in tires true dual straight pipes. no mufflers. turns out the reason it got traded unknowningly to me, was because it sat in the sound(body of water between an island and mainland), which was swamp land, for 3 days. ended up having a fuel system problem and electrical... go figure... traded it in and got the mustang for more than its worth. (lost 5g on the truck)

Well the positive on this is I won't have to spend the time and money to diagnose what the real problem is with my Ranger and I will have a beat around vehicle at the house again. I spent alot of time attempting to diagnose that truck and finally gave up...that was over a year ago.

The main thing he is interested in is getting out of payments on a vehicle he really doesn't need and getting something fun for the trails. He wants to pull the doors and bed off the truck, put an exoskeleton on it, and trail ride it. That's what I was wanting to do, just haven't had the time or money to do so and it's not practical for me right now.

Well it seems I'm a better horse trader than I thought. Have a friend who's been looking for something to go back and forth to the hunting camp (His F350 is difficult to get down the trails) and he might be interested. Just waiting on pictures now so I can forward them.

I need no more vehicles to mod. This is exactly what I would do to it and exactly why I want to sell it as soon as possible lol. And it's def less than 4k plus a non-running vehicle that I can't give away it seems.

not bad man... as long as the interior is nice and runs good. you should be able to get 4-5k for it. if you find the right buyer maybe more.

Re: So I think I might pick up another vehicle...lol

Lol...interesting things I found out today...

Just got off the phone with the guy who brought our 7up car down from michigan several years ago. He sold it to his brother, then to a friend, then traded it back to him. He then traded it straight up for this bronco from the guy who originally owned the bronco. We bought the 7up from the guy who originally owned this bronco. I think it means I need it now.

Dunno yet...I almost wouldn't mind having a clean dd if the need arises. If I come across something that would be a good trade then it's here. It'd be alot easier to sell/trade a running vehicle versus a broken truck IMO.

But...I do have a guy interested in it if it's as clean as I'm being told. So..it might be sold here in a few months if I do this trade.

Welp, just picked up the car dolly, about to go do the trade. Pics to come.

For now, here's some better pics of the truck from the current owner:





Here's to hoping the straps on the dolly will fit over 33's....

Apparently a full size bronco on 33's will not fit on a u-haul car dolly....we drove it the 4 hours back and it didn't miss a beat. Tires and exhaust will be the first things to fix...anyone need some brand new 33x12.5?
