Ended up taking out the inner fender to get at it, heated and PB blasted already... got the nipple loosened from the manifold but can't break the flare or compression nut. Really tough spot to try to fit opposing wrenches.
Actually haven't found a replacement yet so thanks for heads up on finding one before I whack it with the sawzall.
The 1996 F150/Bronco models were among the first to start using the DPFE style EGR system. That makes these tubes very expensive and hard to find from time to time. PCI Inc. has pleny for the earlier style trucks/cars that use an EVP, position feedback, EGR system but they do not carry the DPFE style on this vintage truck.
The photos listed with the EGR tube I listed may not be of the actual part. Ford revised it to eliminate the crack prone "accordion" section. I hope this nets what the OP is looking for.
