low cost od for Bronco

Another good reason for a 250 in your Bronco. These 3 speed+od came in 300 six broncos and F150's in the mid 90's i believe. This is apparently a nice rebuilt unit but wrecking yards probably have plenty of them in good condition they were not a delicate trans. Get one from picnpull and it might be a reasonable low cost od option for your Bronco even more so if your local picnpull has half price day. OD makes your Bronco way more highway capable and I can speak from experience.

I have the OD tranny behind a six and the gas mileage is great.

OK I see it is a Bronco. Good to hear about your od and the mileage.

There is currently one in an 83 ECONOLINE at a salvage yard in KCMO. I pulled the shifter mech and pedals out of the van. Its behind a 300. It is 2wd however.
