Hi. I am very seriously thinking of a bronco/blazer. My options are a 1994 bronco or a 1994 blazer.
I could also get a 1996 Bronco or a 1996 2dr. Tahoe. What do you all think?

Blazers are much nicer during those years.

IFS rides really well, with the 1996 2dr Tahoe, you'll get an airbag.

The Blazer I've been in was also pretty quiet and a very nice ride.

IIRC, the Ford will have the TTB front-end and it rides a little harsher than the Chevy.

I don't really know how the 5.0 runs in the Bronco, but everyone knows how well the 350 runs

I am a Chevy guy, but these are what I've found out through my experiences.

TTB?

Twin Traction Beam.

Very weird front axle set-up.

Here's a drawing I found. It's really hard to explain. Do a Google search for "Ford TTB"

Whats the chevy have?

Independent front suspension.

Looks something like this but in a heavier scale. Dual A-arms, but the 4x4 Chevy will have the driveshafts running down the middle.


I can't find a good pic of Chevy's IFS system.

You could get a Bronco with a 5.8L/351, it is a decent engine. What are you going to be doing with this rig? Everyday back and forth to work, camping/hunting/wheeling only? I would say TTB is in between a solid axle and IFS when it comes to ride quality, strength, and travel.

I think the Chevys are MUCH easier to work on. That way WHEN you break somthing, you can fix it!
