Whether the crossroads take you through the six-point rollcage-required trails or up and over the rocky road, this is the Bronco that can get you home. The well-equipped bed/covered cargo area includes tools, an air compressor, tools, in-cab onboard air, and more tools.

It takes a rare breed of person to delve into the depths of becoming an equine activist. Bronco aficionados stake claim to their independence, unfenced freedom, and individuality with their trusted steeds. And like many other early Bronco owners, Lee Novikoff dreamt of one day heading West to experience the unwritten legacy of Western rockcrawling.

From Texas, Lee traversed the trail to Johnson Valley, California, were he and his Bronco buff buddies hit some of the area's premier trails like Wrecking Ball and Outer Limits and several serious play areas sometimes used in competitive rockcrawling circuits.

With Ford's historic values and modern modifications, watching the '72 in action was like watching a fusion of old and new. You'll find fun facts in the mix of photos and text here.
