Trail Rigs - 1972 Ford Bronco

Raging BroncoTodd Sucher has been modifying this '72 Ford Bronco Sport for the better part of five years. The rig is powered by a 302ci engine that's been bored 0.030 over and equipped with an Edelbrock intake and a Holley carburetor. Bolted up behind it is a C4 automatic transmission. A 7-inch Skyjacker lift with quad shocks provides the stance, with Eagle II aluminum wheels wrapped in 33x12.50x15 Mastercraft rubber at the corners. The Bronco is outfitted with a full rollcage, a Superwinch winch, and James Duff flares.
