Prepare for Lift-Off
This 1987 Ford Bronco II belongs to Oneil Levesque of Edmunston, New Brunswick, Canada. Despite being mostly stock, Oneil knows how to have a good time in the forest around his hometown. The rig has a 2-inch suspension lift, allowing fitment of 31-inch BFG Mud-Terrains. Oneil also added a custom roof rack to store gear while out and about.
Down and Dirty
This 1973 Scout II belongs to Scott Carpenter of Modesto, California. It has a stock IH 345 V-8 engine, a TF 727 transmission, and a Dana 20 transfer case. A pair of stock Dana axles still resides under this rig, though the suspension has been completely revised with a 4-inch suspension lift from Superlift. Also gone are the OE tires and wheels in favor of 31-inch Swamper LTBs on 15-inch Rockcrawler wheels.
David Metheny of Scottsville, Kentucky, says he's finally got his 1988 Samurai built to perfection. Some of the modifications he performed along the way were adding a Weber carburetor, a pair of lockers, 5.39:1 gearing, and a custom rollcage. David drives Little Red daily and is thrilled with how cheap the rig is to drive and maintain, compared to his friends with bigger fullsized pickups.
