Top Truck Challenge 2010 Competitors: The Dirty Dozen

Shocker Of A Bronco
Brandon Goodwin's Bronco has as much in common with an early Bronco as the Tank Trap has with Interstate 5, but at least it is a cool conversation piece. With some vaguely recognizable early Bronco sheetmetal that has been massaged and narrowed to fit over the Kitsap Kustoms-built tube chassis, it is clearly purpose-built-for the purpose of taking it all at Top Truck Challenge.
