Come on guys! With all the great, creative mechanical minds on this forum, someone should be able to figure out a way to defeat the dust.

Do the late-model Broncos ('94-'96) have this problem? Surely they are sealed up better than my old '80 whose body and hardware are about the same quality as a Wal-mart cheese grater?

I have a 95 bronco, and dust is still a problem. I live with it because I live in a small-ish town. I go offroading quite a bit, and thats where the problem lies. if your roads are paved, then you dont have that problem as much. I go out shooting, hunting, fishing, wheeling almost every weekend and that is why dust is in my truck, you cant stop it, it is what the planet is made of. my dad has an 03 expedition, and a 2000 xterra, both have dust in them. it all depends on where you live and where you go.

I think it is a common trate of the Broncos to get dust inside. What irks me is when I am four wheeling in the mountains and forget to let the back window all the way up and suddenly when I start choking on dust I think of it. By that time the inside is covered with dust. You can see the ole Bronco on my web site at www.michellesfords.com just go to the bottom of the first page and click on Bronco.

I'm down working in Argentina and even with a 3 year old Hilux dust will find a way in especially the fines. Yes Broncos seem to be worse especially after they get a few years and miles on em, normal wear and they just don't fit together as well and there it is.

I suppose you can go through and replace all the weather stripping, door and window seals, adjust all the doors and windows but it's gonna be a moot point unless you do this and there may still be some leakage. You can reduce but it will most likely still leak.
