Overlanding Bronco II

You don’t see a lot of Ford Bronco II’s set up for overlanding, so it’s nice when you actually find one. Chris Rodriguez has done a great job setting his up for some off pavement adventures.

The stock Dana 28 and Ford 7.5-inch axles were replaced with larger Dana 35 and Ford 8.8 axles. ARB air lockers and Yukon 4.56 gears ensure that the BFGoodrich 32-inch KTM’s get traction and keep the Bronco II crawling forward. A Skyjacker 4-inch lift with extended radius arms make room for the tires.

Other upgrades include:

  • ARB twin compressor
  • JL speaker Evolution series 8900 LED headlights
  • Spod switch system
  • James Duff rear plate bumper with custom dual gas can holder and tire carrier (modified by Rock solid off road)
  • Safari snorkel for a 60 series land cruiser custom fitted fully sealed
  • Custom T-Rax roof rack by Rock solid off road
  • CVT roof top tent
  • 4.0 HD Explorer radiator with flex-a-lite electric fan
  • Ham radio
  • KC hilites rock lights as interior lighting
  • ARB 50qt fridge
  • Back up camera.

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 TheRangerStation.com. 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.
