Happy 4th of July!

I am planning on changing the coolant on my 96 Ford Bronco.
She has the 5.8l 351w and is mostly driven off-road in the desert and Baja.

I am about to go to Walmart and was wondering which one to get, since they sell so many.
My manual says it needs to meet ESE-M97B44-A and it takes 17 qt.

Which one is the best to get?

Nothing from Walmart, they stock universal and dex/dex clones. Get Peak Green full strength from AA or AZ and mix with distilled water.

You won't go wrong with the "old green stuff." I used it for many years with no problems. Regards

LOL, the planets are in alignment! Around here, there are still plenty of farm supply stores to get the traditional green. But more and more, I'm recommending John Deere Cool-Gard II.
