My bronco's door is easy to open on the inside but too difficult on the outside. I took off the panel to look inside and took off the door handle itself, thinking maybe something was causing friction there but that was not the case. What is making the door so hard to open?

Well.., like most 40+ year old rides.., things ware down.

Could be the hinge pins are worn, causing a bind. (door hanging too low) 

Or, the outside door handle Mechanism is worn in several places.

You could open up the pass. side panel and have a look to see what's different.
