Final Bronco Unveiled

Pictures of the final Bronco are here! Huge thanks to the guys at @RK Motors Charlotte Performance Center for all the work and time they put into this project. It would not have turned out as great as it did without their expertise.

Also, big thanks to all of our project sponsors and partners for their contributions, time and dedication to this project.

RKMCPC began its renovation with the Ford’s heart. The original V8 was replaced with a new 5.0L “Coyote” Aluminator engine that churns out over 400 HP. It is connected to a Transzilla T56 six speed with a Centerforce dual friction clutch sending power to a 241 GM transfer case with slip yoke eliminator. The rear end was replaced with a Ford 8.8 unit using Yukon 31-splines while the front axles get their power from a “Detroit Locker” sporting 4:56 gears. The suspension features a BDS lift system, Warn locking hubs and a Power Slot brake system.

The team wanted the exterior of the Bronco to reflect the truck’s capabilities, so the body was prepped for a new “Desert Tan” finish. The Bronco now has a one-piece fiberglass hood that flips forward to open, fiberglass wheel flares, custom bumpers, a Warn M12000 winch, “ammo storage” boxes on rails and custom Superbright LED lighting. The side trim and emblems were smoothed and deleted for a more modern appearance. The “super truck” rides on 18” x12” Fuel Off-road wheels wrapped in 38/15.50/18 Nitto Mud Grappler tires.

The interior was not left untouched. It was enhanced with custom Corbeau seats, custom panels, hand fabricated dash, LED accent lighting, Classic Instruments’ aviation-style gauges, a Vintage Air climate control system, Kenwood touchscreen stereo sending tunes to the Alpine speakers, subwoofer and 5-channel amplifier, as well as various military hardware touches.

The vehicle will be displayed to the public for the first time this weekend at the RKM Collector Car Auction, from Oct. 31st through Nov. 3 in the Charlotte Convention Center. It will next be shown at the Charlotte International Auto Show from Nov. 21 through Nov. 24 in the convention center, also.
