bronco roof line different that trucks?

Hey guys,

I finally found a lighted visor for my 1995 Bronco! however, the guy i'm getting it from says he bought it for his 1990 F-150 thinking it was the same roof line and would fit. If he would of asked me, i would have told him it'd fit. I know quite a bit about these era trucks and always thought the roof lines were the same from actually 73-96 150's and broncos. However, the guy said the install directions specifically say "1992-1996 Bronco only". anyone know why?? I don't want to drive 2 hours for this thing if it for some odd reason isn't right. it is a lund moon visor by the way.

Thanks guys,
TheBlueMule

Hrmmm.... I can't think of any reason it wouldn't fit. As far as I know, there are absolutely no differences between any roof line on any 80 - 96 Bronco/Truck until you get to the rear of the cab where the truck turns into a window, and the Bronco has the shell.

The Lund Moon visors I find on line state they'll fit 80 - 98 F-trucks.

If someone else can think of any other reason...

The only change to that part of the truck/Bronco bodies during the era in question was a change in the vent windows/upper door and window configuration and that is minor. The roof line, to the best of my knowledge did not change from 80-96 in the Bronco.

Interesting. I have a similar question that I get opposing answers to. It's about the headliner. Would a Headliner from an F150 fit a Bronco of the same body years? I've been trying to get a headliner for my 92 Bronco and can't find one anywhere. I was wondering if I found one in a 92-96 F150, if it would work also?

The headliner for the truck may well be too short because of the fact that the aft portion of the roof in the Bronco tapers up and back to meet the fiberglass top. The truck headliner would end at a point where it met with the rear of the cab coming down which I believe is a bit closer than the point where the Bronco top meets the roof line.

What color of headliner for the bronco are you looking for? I have a tan eddie bauer with the hole for the center console, and a gray non-eddie bauer from a 95. Both in decent shape. Are you in Lakeland Florida?

Well, i bought the visor. It came with all the origional installation instructions and information. It lists a different part number for bronco's than the f-series pickups. I have no idea what the difference is but this thing fits beautifully on my bronco, and they guy swore up and down it wouldn't fit on his 1990 F-150. And i believe it didn't because it was a brand new visor that had been out of the box once and he sold it for a third of what he paid for it.

I know this is an OLD thread, but I wanted to add my observation about the difference between the roof lines of Broncos and F trucks.
Everywhere you look online, there is reference to visors fitting both the Bronco and the F trucks, but I do not think that is accurate.

I have a '93 F150 and a '95 Bronco and yes, there is a subtle difference in the roof area over the windshield.
The Bronco's roof rises slightly higher than the F150's does.
And only a discerning eye will catch the difference.

The big difference is that the Bronco's rise is parallel with the windshield angle where as the F150's rise departs at lesser angle quickly.

I also have a Lund Visor FP2 and it fits the F150 perfectly, but it doesn't fit the Bronco very well at all.
It would take a lot of manipulation to make it work, if at all possible.

The hang up on the Bronco seems to be the visor's center mounts hold one end of the visor up too high when setting the other end of the visor down to meet the roof.

I would be cautious of buying an FP2 thinking it will fit [nicely] on a Bronco......

A very interesting observation. I pulled up some pics to compare, and I think you're exactly right. This would mean the flat(ish) top is likely higher on the Bronco as well. Kinda makes sense given the rise at the back to meet the removable top.

Does anyone know what part number Lund used for the Bronco specific visor?

FP2= F series

?? = Bronco

and for those who don't know, there are similar visors being made under the Keystone Restyling name available at Summit Racing.

12159 fits 80-96 F series w/ factory cab lights
12140 fits 80-96 F series w/o factory cab lights

and Summit Sports Cab visors for Bronco (different style than Lund)

Summit Racing® Sportvisor Cab Visors *non lighted* - SUM-480030 fits 80-96 Bronco
Summit Racing® Sportvisor Cab Visors *lighted* - SUM-480130 fits 80-96 Bronco

Okay~ not sure how anyone is mounting the FP2 visor on a BRONCO because it doesn't fit on mine.

There sure are a lot of clowns on EBAY and other online sites repeating bad info.....

Here is what I have been able to figure out as far as part numbers are concerned:

>>>UNLIGHTED sun visors<<<<
FB2 /(12040) = 80-96 (97HD) F series w/o factory cab lights
12159 = 80-96 (97HD) F series w/ factory cab lights
12028 = 80-96 Bronco
..................................................
>>>lighted MOON visors<<<
19002 = 80-96 (97HD) F series
19004 = 80-96 Bronco

It seems that Keystone Restyling has kept the Lund part numbers.

and as far as fastener kit, if you don't want to piece meal it from a hardware store:

old Lund #: 41103
Keystone #: EB309 RP


Now if you were actually able to get an FP2 to fit an FSB, please chime in on how you did it without distorting the heck out of it......

And if you have a Bronco specific Lund visor, is the part number all numeric or was there an FB? part number for the earlier ones?

Looks like I must have gotten dumb lucky. The most glaring flaw on the interior of my '95 Bronco was the driver's side sun visor. The material, for some reason, had gotten shredded badly. They were the double visor style with lighted vanity mirrors. I found a pair on ebay that were the correct light gray and bought them. They fit perfectly in the truck and both hooked up to the wiring harness. Everything worked. Anybody know if there is a market for the right side double visor? The one that I replaced was just like new and the light worked. Also, can the driver's side be repaired? If so I could sell them as a set.

Good luck on the sale of your interior visors.

Unfortunately, this thread is referring to the exterior windshield visors that mount to the exterior roof of the cab.

You might want to place an ad at the top of the 87-96 forums for them:
