Even though the factory-installed motor was a dog, the rest of the OEM drivetrain was respectable. Bud's Bronco uses a bombproof four-speed manual tranny behind the swapped-in 460 V-8. Ford's 9-inch rearend is the stuff of legend, and the high-pinion Dana 44 front axle is a durable welterweight. The coil-sprung radius-arm front suspension combines a smooth ride and backwoods durability. Superlift's bolt-on suspension parts add enough height for a set of 37-inch Goodyear MT/Rs mounted to 15-inch American Racing Outlaw IIs.
