Project Budget Bronco II

This 1984 Ford Bronco II is owned by forum member ‘Sweet-85’. His goal is to “have a completely self sufficient vehicle I can take anywhere…”. I think he’s done a great job working towards that goal.

The Bronco II’s specifications are:

  • 2.8L V6 with a Duraspark conversion (So long TFI!)
  • 5-speed manual transmission
  • Dana 35 TTB front axle swap
  • Ford 8.8-Inch rear axle swap
  • 4-inch front lift coils, drop brackets, and 3.5-inch rear lift blocks
  • 32/11.50R-15 Achilles Desert Hawk X-MT tires
  • Custom metal roof basket
  • (4) 100-watt offroad lights on the roof basket
  • Custom front winch bumper
  • Smittybilt XRC8 8,000 winch
  • Land Cruiser 60 Series snorkel (ebay special)
  • 100 AMP alternator from a 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis

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.
