Fleet Bronco is starting off with a positive reputation.
How about putting it on a low carb diet?

I was actually thrilled to be driving such a "featherweight" vehicle when I bought my Bronco (which tips the scales @ just about 5100lbs as mentioned). But then I went to the Bronco from a 1969 Cadillac Hearse/Ambulance that weighed in at 6900 lbs. (pardon the expression) dead empty, with 180lbs of ME in the front and a nearly empty 25 gallon fuel tank.

You can lose about 175 lbs by removing the top and if weight is still a concern, replace those rusting rear quarters and tailgate with fiberglass versions. The OEM hood weighs 100-120 lbs which can also be swapped to fiberglass along with the front quarters as well. The guys at Autofab.com can give you a good idea just how much weight you can subtract by switching to fiberglass body parts.

That's already a no carb diet

Yeah, but with fuel injection the truck should be thin as a rail!
