Good deals on 88+ Broncos?

I am looking for a great deal on a 88+ Bronco for around 3K. Anyone got any deals or seen anything good recently?

Also how much should I be worried about rust? With the amount of salt on the roads I am wondering if I can even find a bronco in MN that will not have some rust. What is a "reasonable" level?

I am new to trucks so any help you can provide is appreciated.

Tim

I've seen some nice Broncos running around here (SW suburbs) without any rust, so they can be found. None of them have been for sale, but if I see anything, I'll let you know.

I found my 92 F150 on www.autotrader.com. I spent a month or so looking but I did find one with no rust. Took some time, but well worth it. My gallery will be coming soon.

Good deals on 88+ Broncos?

I did see a nice looking Bronco on my way home from work today. Not sure of the year, looked like late 80's (just guessing from the grill). It is just off of HWY 61, north of Hugo, south of Forest lake. it is on the east side of the road. Just before mile marker 154. It is red with a lund visor, and if I remember right, black fender guards. Looked sharp from the road.

Yea, I paid more attention to the surrounding area than I did the truck.

Email me or reply if you want me to stop and get a number or more info. I drive by it on a regular basis.

You might check out K+K auto ranch in farmington.
They handle alot of ex-gov't stuff and I recently picked up a 96 bronco with no rust ( and I do mean.....NO RUST!) from the south u.s. and have been ecstatic with it!

When looking be sure to check out the bottom of the tailgate and the rear corners of the doorsills.
Take a magnet along as well to detect a "bondo buggy"

Thanks to everyone for their comments! I tried K+K but they didn't have anything in my price range. I did find a 89 that seems to be in decent shape but I am not sure. I am going to ask in the main bronco forum to see what everyone thinks.
