Bought a Bronco

Sold my last Bronco 13 years ago, a 96 Eddie Bauer, and it's been the only truck I've ever regretted selling. Today I finally had the chance to pick up another one. It's a little rusty around the edges in all the common places, but nothing that can't be remedied. Long term plan will be a full restoration, but for now it's a Bronco.

Very nice for a 22 year old plow truck!

The picture probably does it slightly more justice than it deserves. The tailgate is toast, the rear fenders are rough and it's starting to get into the driver side B pillar and rockers. Plus a few dings and a bent bumper. While it's certainly far from the worst I had seen, I mainly bought it because it's a complete 96 Eddie Bauer (5.8l) and 90% of the trim pieces and interior are in good shape.

I haven't yet decided if I'll save this body or try to pick up another rust free one down the road. Having this one certainly opens up my options though.

It's a multiyear plan, I don't expect it to come to fruition for quite some time.

It's maroon and tan. Not the biggest fan of maroon. I may paint it black eventually, or green like my last one.
