The main reason I got a Bronco for the Cheap Truck Challenge is the fact that they come with a lot of desirable parts, even for a Chevy guy like me. Because my Bronco has the optional 351 engine, it left the factory with the 1-ton-tested C6 transmission and a rare Ford-spec NP208 transfer case. Most GM truck owners swap their 208s out for the older NP205 to get rid of the factory slip yoke, but Ford owners can enjoy the 208's lower gearing (2.61:1 low-range versus 1.96:1 of the 205) because they came with a fixed-yoke rear output shaft. I also like how the Ford 208 is clocked up to be level with the framerail. I wish my Blazer's transfer case was like that.
