Nemisus 1987 Ford Bronco II 4×4

One of the long time Bronco II owners that has frequented the online forums over the years is ‘Nemisus’. He built up his 1987 Ford Bronco II with 8-inches of lift using Skyjacker and James Duff parts.

He eventually replaced the stock Dana 28 front axle with a full width high pinion Dana 44 with 5.13 gears, and an ARB air locker. The axle was swapped in using James Duff long travel radius arms, variable rate 5.5-inch coil springs, and James Duff coil buckets.

The stock rear 7.5-inch axle was replaced with a Ford 9-Inch equipped with 5.13 gears and an ARB air locker. The axle is mounted under the Bronco using 6-inch Skyjacker leaf springs, and 2-inch Belltech shackles.

The Bronco II rides on 35X12.5 TXR tires mounted on 15X10 Black steel rims.

The original 2.8L V6 was replaced with a 4.0L V6 from a 1993 Ford Explorer. Nemisus used the complete wiring harness, along with the Explorers dash, seats, and center console.

As time went on, the Bronco II was given a new white paint job with a set of Bushwacker fender flares. The front bumper is a James Duff winch bumper, and the rear bumper is a James Duff  tire carrier /gas can mount.

I have no idea if Nemisus still has the Bronco II, but I wanted to preserve its memory here at the Bronco II Corral.

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created As That site began to grow, I began to see a lot of Bronco II owners join the site, since it shared the same platform with the Ranger. That caused me to create the 'Bronco II Corral' as a photo gallery, which spawned off in to the website you're visiting today. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
