With the unit jacked up, manually turn one drive wheel and see if the other side turns in the opposite direction. It should if the differential is ok. To test drive, you need to keep one wheel on the ground or hold one wheel. otherwise, you will get what you describe, one wheel turns, one turns intermittently. Do you have the Bronco model number? a long model number, letter, and numbers maybe 10 digits long.
