I rarely click on the adverts when reading the news, but did this morning to see which ones Popular Mechanics thought were the 51 Coolest Trucks Of All Time. But then I found this. What is wrong with it?
Not the truck, but the writeup. You may want to click on the link and go to #14, which is the Bronco one. There are a few more words not shown in the snag above, which say:
Ford refined the chassis in 1981, and as a result, the Bronco lost its durable Dana 44 solid front axle in favor of a new Twin-Traction Beam setup that was less capable off-road. So it was these first three years of the big Bronco that have found the strongest following among Ford truck fans.
Can we really argue with them though? There's quite a few differences between 1980-1981 trucks and 1982-1986. That's part of the reason why I like the early bullnose trucks, they share some things in common with the dentside trucks.
