Default Your Opinions matter plz!!

Ok so here it is the short version. I love my truck.. but we found a bronco ii the same year color,motor 2.9 of course.. teehee the only difference my truck standard with push button 4X4 and i have manual hubs... the bronco ii has auto trany (yuck) with manual transfer case (yah) with manual hubs... no tech answers now.. i know what to change and what will and will not fit... I just don't know.. the ranger needs love... so i bought my hubby the welder and tools to fix.. and well the bronco doesn't need much really.. except we don't know the motor and trany in the bronco.. originaly we bought the bronco for parts ONLY... but further inspection its a little better shape kinda if yah know what i mean...

this is where you come in... ideas !!

What is your ultimate end goal of either the ranger or BII? Is it going to be a daily driver or more of an offroad truck?

I think that would help you and your husband figure out which one you want to put the time/effort into fixing.

I would love a BII. It would be fun to lift and put some 33s onto and drive it till it dies.

i say keep the bronco, the pushbutton 4x4 system that you have in the ranger is a shit sandwich. keep the ranger for parts, seeing you "know the engine and trans".
