Looking at getting a Wrangler for some light offroading (trails and such) and as a run around town vehicle. Certainly mid 90s or newer. Then its hits me how much the Wranglers really have held their resale value over the mid 90s for Bronco.
See my requirements for the Wrangler are:
and AC would be nice.
Something like that if I am lucky ends up at $5500 or more.
Then look at a mid 90s Bronco.
8 cyl 302 or 351 usually - (more HP and at least as good MPG as the Jeep 4.0);
Most have AC if not all.
Price on that is $3000-$3500 if you really want to spend some cash.
So, I know this is a biased crowd of course, but on paper the Bronco is a great buy! Sure its larger than the Wrangler, but for trail running and a run around town vehicle, it seems to make more sense, mainly because they are nearly half the cost.
(Of course the first Gen of Bronco are more comparable to the Wrangler is size; but they are out of my price range.)
