Don't mind at all. Interior: My LC had no rear seats, pulled out the Bronco rear bench seat as well. Empty the Bronco has a little more room. The side saddle seating on the LC may make may make the youngsters , but more room for the dog.
On road: The Bronco front coil springs may ride smoother than the LC leaf, but it will depend more on shock/spring/tire selection, ect. Never had any problems at highway speed either way. The LC may actually be more stable when worn out, Broncos will develop the dreaded "Death-Wabble" when the Track bar and other bushings are toast.
Rust: Yes. All the normal spots, plus; LC check around the rear wheel tubs/inner fenders, around the area below the tailgate. Broncos check the door striker/hinge posts, and the seam on the rear quarter panals. You can almost build a Bronco from scratch. There was a supplier for an aluminum tub for the LC.
Good luck with the search
