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 […]

What possessed Bobby Quarnstrom to build a Bronco II? And to not just slightly improve it, but to make his 1986 model into a full-bore 4×4 off road rig that he regularly takes on hard core, off-road trips to Baja? He literally bought it for $180, that’s why. Actually, he bought two of them for […]

“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.
