Hey what’s up broncozone community? Just reaching out to introduce myself and my truck, it’s a 96 Eddie Bauer. Not original paint, it has a 5.8 automatic 4 x4 with a 4.10 front and rear diff on 35 cooper stt and a 2.5 rough country suspension lift , 5100 billstein quad shocks front and rear. Upgraded extra 1000lbs on the leaf springs from general springs and custom roof rack. It has a 3 inch straight pipe exhaust with magnaflow and black tip. I named it Squatchy. I’ve been adding and tuning this rig for two years, I’ve been Overlanding Cali,Washington,Oregon,Arizona,Nevada,Utah,Wyoming,Colorado and New Mexico. I’m heading to Montana in May. It’s been a dependable beast, my first Ford and now holds a special place in my life. We hope to join you guys on a Squatchy Adventure in the near future.9BC3EC8E-5935-46CC-ADD9-FB97C3E0FDA5.jpeg6C68E4D2-12EF-4A8F-8DA2-021177DB7BE5.jpeg5C8FB382-AF26-4819-BD0E-532CDCF66ADA.jpeg44D65BB8-DDE1-4B81-B4E2-B783202E5146.jpeg

That's awesome. Did you buy it new in 96? How many miles does it have now?

Got to hit Glacier national park in Montana. The "going to the sun" road is a epic drive..... and if you enjoy history read up on how they made the road.
Welcome … AWESOME Bronco

Yo BIG ACE,
Welcome and congrats on acquiring the best year Big Bronco EVER known to man and woman kind!! It does look vg, Well Done!

ASAP, find out if speed control recall work, if equipped was completed. If you still have concerns about Recalls, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship Center:
US: 800-392-3673 | CA: 800-565-3673
Note: 3673 spells "FORD" on phone keys
For the hearing- or speech-impaired: Please contact the Telecommunication Relay Service by dialing 71
... have VIN ready.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
To confirm current status, use this guide by jowens1126 @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than the 94-96 recall.
