They stopped making them at 1996. I have an 88 and 88 up looks all the same almost. Broncos get around 17-18 MPG on highway and 13-14 in the city if you drive decent. Also depends on the engine and your foot.

actually he is right, but thats like an 87 351w. the 5.0 gets like 18mpg. in 96 they cancled the line and introduced the expedition, the next generation of gas guvlers. the 89+ look the same from the front view but the major differences were introduced in 1990, and that is why they are split up into time periods. 96-90, 89-86, 85-80, 79-77, and 77-66.

I OWN a 1988 FSB with a 351W in it and I get 17-18 easy on the highway. I have 3.08 gears and get around 10-11 mpg in the city. When I regear I'll be getting around 13-14 MPG in the city and more on the highway. 3.08 gears are very very bad gears for 33's. I'm getting some 4.11's which will put it more in the powerband. I have the k&n FIPK and Magnaflow exhaust and that's my mileage. So it also depends on the gears aswell.

Let's get back ontopic: Ralph if I was you I wouldn't look for a specific year just find one that doesn't have alot of problems and no rust. Broncos are very fun imo. I love mine.

never said you couldn't get good mileage w/ one. but when you have bad gearing, rebuilt motor with compression issues and it has a carb w/ sticky valves...yeah, you get the picture. if the 3.0 in my ranger ever dies its getting a V8 conversion and a 5.0 pronto.

Stock with 3.08 and 3.55. 3.08 to 4.11 will be a HUGE difference in the city. If I go with a 4.56 I will have to change carriers which sucks that's why I am going with the 4.11's.
