Any full size Bronco experts on here?

I am trying to sell my snowmobile and have a guy wanting to trade me his '93 Bronco. I have always wanted a Bronco, but don't know a lot about the newer ones. Here is link to a story about the Bronco:

Planet 4x4 - Jarrods Big Bronco

Here is some more info that I got from him on it:

"I did the axles swap with the help of my buddy who owns a offroad fab shop. The Dana 60 is in there now. I also extended the radius 12" and boxed them in. It still has 4.10 gears in the axles and the factory limited slip in the rear. The front is open. I can't remember if the article said anything about the 5 speed swap. I had the whole parts truck when I put the 5 speed in. I also took out the push button t-case and swapped in a manual shift borg warner 1356 t-case. The motor, Body and frame have around 166,000 miles on them. I'm getting ready to put new axle seals in the front axle do to the fact they started leaking a couple weeks ago. the Bronco is very sound and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross county. The tires are about 1/2 tread with the spare being around 3/4 tread. To run the 15" rims I swapped over to chevy 3/4 ton brakes. I have driven this from Idaho to lake tahoe. The ride quality is excellent. It rides nicer then the Original TTB. The interior is in good shape, the driver seat has a tear from getting in and out. I'm selling it cause I have turned my interest to sandrails and snowmobiles."

Anyone have an opinion if this sounds like a pretty good setup? Anyone have an idea what it is worth?

Thanks.

i had a bronco for over two years which i just sold in august wasnt anything that crazy but it did take a lot of abuse like off roading and towing way heavier then it was made too stuck a decent amount into fixing stupid stuff but besides that motor ran good and trans shifted ok (sliped when i bought the truck put lucas in it and it lasted 30k til the day i sold it) only thing i know is they rust like any ford truck and typical IFS bs but if the guy has swapped the front axle just hope they did it right same with the lift! looks like an ok trade to me

kyle, 96 f250, S&B intake, 3 inch DP, 4 inch exhaust, 4 inch stacks w/ rain caps, many exterior mods
