When I met my wife 30 years ago, she had a red 1989 Bronco II XL, 2.9L 5 spd. After it got a set of 235R15 All-terrain tires, it could keep up with my 1986 Toyota 4WD pickup just about anywhere off road. She loved her Bronco and it eventually went to her daughter when she got her drivers license. Now, with the new Bronco coming out, both are enthusiastic about getting a new one.

Looking forward to a 2dr Badlands, if finances allow.

Daughter is now married with kids, so she wants a 4dr Black Diamond. Has to have access to the back for those darn child safety seats.

Wikapedia has reviews on all of the negative press about rollovers. The Bronco II had quite a few lawsuits. .
In the eighties, I thought they were great fun. I say; damn the bad publicity! I’d like another...
I loved my Bronco 2. A 1990, 2.9L, 5 speed, manual transfer case, 30” BFGs. It held its own off road and was a blast in whatever snow New Hampshire could throw at us. Mine was silver but I found some pics that look identical otherwise, swanky red interior and all.
