I had an 88 f-150, it was fuel injected, i think the fords went efi in 87 not a straight axle its an independant front end, not bad off road, alot better than the chevy IFS but not as good as a staight axle, if you want a solid axle youll need to upgrade to a 3/4 or 1 ton. pro: cheap to lift (600 for a 6" lift) con: not a striaght axle.

i had an 87 e-350 van, and it was carb not EFI. either they swapped it on some and not others, or it was changed to EFI in 88.

there's no way a 80-96 bronco has a straight axle unless they did a swap. The only big broncos that actually came with the straight axle was the 78 and 79's.

acceleration is good if your gears match your tires. But remember you're driving a heavy rig. Can't expect too much from a bone stock motor.

straight axle ENDED in 79 unless someone swapped it out.

efi was introduced in 85 on the bronc and the trucks too.

a v8 bronc usually has like 350 gears and anyone that ive seen has hard on gas but good on power.

in 1980-82 they came with a 9 inch in the back but changed to the 8.8 in 83.

the bodies were the same from 80-86 than restyled in 87.

from 80-up they were all ifs fronts with dana 44s

he might be confusing a straight axle wit hthe twin traction beam crap. i know my 86 ranger was efi. first year for that. the V-6 anyway. i thought the full sizes were the same way.

I have a 1995 Bronco and I love her to death. I have run her in mud and she plows right through. I've hammered her on the rocks and had no problems. The TTB(Twin Traction Beam) is an alright front suspension but the flex on it is not that great. I found myself on 3 wheels alot because of it while crawling. Once I get my SAS(At one point or another.) I will be able to flex much more. But broncos are gluttons for punishment they can take most of what you can dish out. I hate ford for canceling broncos but I wouldn't sell my bronco for anything.
