Besides the normal items to look/listen/smell/feel for, what are common issues to look for with this truck?

McLeod has a good reputation on FTE.McLeod has a good reputation on FTE.
Check the tailgate over for rust at bottom edge and also see if the tail gate skin, right behind the tire carrier, has started to work loose/crack/separate.
This is a common problem which if caught in time can be reasonably repaired.

Also, check to see if the B pillar/gutter intersection is badly torn.
This will also leak water into the interior near the base of the seatbelts, which usually causes rust and often starts to corrode the dome light wires near the floor area.

Also, the bronco would have a 5.8/351w in it.

Oops! Yep. Windsor motor. Thx. The truck was clean, bottom door seams were solid, bottom of b pillars were fixed and coated. Tailgate was ok, some rust across the seam. We declined to make an offer. Going back to search for an F150 4x4 w/less mileage.
