if your ford bronco isn't enough, turn it into a prorunner

What’s that, you say…you bought a Ford Bronco and it’s not gnarly enough for you? Then it’s time to talk to American Performance Group (APG) about getting your Bronco turned into a ProRunner.

The California-based off-road aftermarket supplier had already used its talents on its Ranger ProRunner package, and now it’s doing the same for the Bronco, with upgrades that’ll tackle the toughest trails yet still keep you comfortable on the highway there and back.

,’autonav’:true}&autoplay=0&playsinline=1&enablejsapi=1″]

The package starts from the ground up, with a long-travel front suspension that gives you 14.5 inches of wheel travel with 40-inch tires, and 16 inches on 37-inch meats. The team replaces the upper and lower control arms with units that are 3.5 inches wider than stock, and wedges in three-inch King Race Series coil-overs with 2.5-inch triple-bypass shocks with reinforced shock towers.

Those coil-overs and shocks show up in the rear as well, but with longer strokes. The rear with 37-inch tires gains an extra half-inch of wheel travel over the front to 16.5 inches, thanks to an APG track bar and control arms. The rear also gets an Ultimate Dana 60 axle that’s seven inches wider than stock, while the front uses an Ultimate Dana 44 independent-suspension drive unit and heavier-duty axles. APG hasn’t yet set every possible measurement in stone for the finished product, but estimates the ride height will increase by three inches, and the overall vehicle height with big tires to go up by five inches.

Of course, if you’ve gone to all that trouble in the greasy bits, you definitely want the top half to tell the world that something’s been changed. The package adds aerospace-grade carbon fibre front and rear fenders that add a total of 14 inches of extra width and enough clearance for you to opt for the 40-inch tires. You also get a carbon fibre hood insert, a one-piece hardtop, and unpainted wheel well flares in your choice of three sizes, from three-quarter-inch to five inches of exposed carbon-fibre goodness.

You’ll be able to buy it as a kit, either for do-it-yourself or for your local professional shop to install. But if you want the full “white-glove installation,” as APG calls it, you can ship your Bronco to the shop in Garden Grove and get it back as a completely turnkey vehicle, including the paint, tires, and any of the company’s aftermarket accessories you decide to add, such as lights or racks.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but there may be ways to keep the cost down – it looks like you’ll be able to ship a base Bronco for the treatment, if you don’t want to spring for a pricier trim. Even so, we expect it’ll be more than the $99,995 starting price you pay in Canada for a Bronco Raptor — but then, anyone can buy one of those, while we expect you’ll be the only one on the trail with a ProRunner, and what’s that feeling worth?

Pre-orders for this ultimate Bronco package open at the beginning of August, and the shop will start cranking out production models in the fall of 2002.
