The vehicle has a 1" body lift, Rancho 5115 Shocks, and unknown springs. It is not a solid lift, but rather rubber for a smoother ride. All bushings are in good condition.

This Bronco has the single tank option, I can send additional photos of undercarriage as well if interested.

Thanks for the clarification. Crazy optical illusion there.

I've said too much already!

For $37k, I'd expect a far better flare job. When something like that gets shorted; it raises a bunch of flags about the other work that was done.

They're not level, don't sit flat on the body (warping and no welting), and look to have been attached with sheet metal screws.

So you take a closer look at the new paint and you can see orange (original color mentioned in ad) in the engine bay (hood, wheel well, front core support, and cowl.

Thatís not my direct issue, but indicative of other things.

Zoom/enlarge the images and youíll see some paint crack around the heads from either over tightening or too soon after paint. Since the heads are painted, they were done at the same time and not shot separately. So Iím doubting there were guide/pilot holes drilled. Iíve seen them with screws that looked fantastic. The unlevel tips of the flares and odd angles (to me) means the installer eye-balled it rather than taping and test fitting. Weíre talking new car prices now and to price something like that; basic expectations arenít being met.

I prefer rivets for flare installs (flat tops with nothing to snag) with a thin runner welting around to hug the body and minimize warping), but to each their own. Something about the non-symmetrical screw heads and unleveled tops irk me. And yes, all the switch plates in my home have screws pointing vertically plumb because I canít take it other wise.

Thatís my main issue; that this is (but is it really any more?) a high asking price Bronco and immediately I see flaws in fit and finish with an admitted new paint job. Perhaps itís a knee jerk reaction to protect the community here and anyone lurking and looking.

I had only looked at the pic of the left rear and thought the rear flare was uneven, but now looking at the direct shot of the driver side I see what you mean, they are different than most I've seen but at the same time kinda symmetrical???

no disrespect to seller, an asking price is just a start to negotiations IMO, good luck

I appreciate your and attention to detail. The car was painted 5+ years ago by the previous owner and has since been maintained with compound wax and polish. As i made clear in the ad, the paint is not perfect and they missed details such as the engine bay. I in no way tried to hide these facts.

The previous owner was also responsible for the suspension, fenders and body lift. While you are so concerned about the price and pin-pointing the angle of every screw, I invite all reasonable offers. The goal of this was to sell the truck as the comfortable weekend cruiser it was used for. Please let me know if this is not the proper platform.

No offense Pangus, but I would start over with a more personal description of YOUR Bronco. Looks like you started out that way, but by the end it sounded more like a Ď76 Ford sales brochure.

Talk about how it handles, how it starts up, little sounds it makes, small oil leaks, how the doors open and close, how the undercarriage was hosed down regularly due to what sounds like a salty environment...the list goes on.

Mine for example has a small leak on one of the valve covers, the driver door seems like itís getting a little harder to open, and since I put the hard top on recently thereís a squeak in the right rear thatís driving me nuts...all of which I would mention in a sales ad.

This is a great website and a good place to sell, but the popularity of the Bronco has drawn in flippers, scammers and car salesmen of all types creating accounts on here just to sell. And why wouldnít they?!

So nothing personal and again, good luck

1st Rodeo.....if you look up the address on google earth, it is shown as Redline Restorations, so the 'salesman description' now makes sense.

To O.P.: NO OFFENSE meant, but all dealer ads sound similar and it seems easy to figure out that it isn't an individual (like myself) trying to sell their Bronco.

It is nice, but should have some underside pics included. I think I posted around 50 pics in my ad, including closeups of areas that I considered 'issues'. A half dozen or so pictures for a $37,000 price tag just seems a bit weak.

There are other noticeable things, beside the mis-aligned fender flares and paint under the hood, such as no dash pad, cassette player with knobs that don't look right.

Still, Good Luck with your sale!!

Nope, you're in the right place.
