Wouldn’t it have been great if the Bronco II had come with an open top like the other Bronco’s ford produced? Some owners have overcome this by cutting the top off of their Bronco II’s. And, some turn out better than others. The Bronco II you see pictured above started out as the 1984 Ford […]

This nicely built 1988 Eddie Bauer Ford Bronco II is owned by forum member ‘BroncoIIer’.  When he bought his Bronco II, it already had a 4-inch Skyjacker suspension lift and 33″ x 12.50″ Interco TRXUS MT tires. After about 6 months, the passenger side head gasket let go, so BroncoIIer purchased a 1992 Ford Explorer with a […]

“Ruth’s” Bronco II was one of the extreme Bronco II’s that has graced this site, and I didn’t want it to be lost and forgotten with time. When Ruth bought the Bronco II it was still stock. He lifted it with custom made suspension blocks, and made his own bodylift out of  2×2″ tubing and all-thread. […]

The Big Black Bronco II. Sounds like it should be a Dr. Seuss book. The ‘B’ book. If the cool Cat In The Hat was in to 4×4’s, this is probably the vehicle he’d drive. Ok, seriously though…. This 1984 Ford Bronco II out of Wyatt Indiana is probably one of the nicest, cleanest ’84 […]

Jason started out by stripping the truck to a bare […]

While at the Dearborn Michigan Meet & Greet, I met up with Dan Bastian and checked out his 1990 Ford Bronco II 4×4. At first glance this may look like a typical Bronco II that’s lifted and riding on 35-inch tires. But closer examination reveals that it’s more than that. The suspension is a James […]
