Ever since my last post about my previous 1968 Ford Bronco Bug Out Vehicle I’ve gotten tons of questions about my current BOV. I loved my former Bronco so much I opted again for another Bronco. My current one is a 1972. Below are some photos and specs.
As you can see, this one isn’t as Mad-Max looking as the last. However, this Bronco has a 1987 Ford 302 Roller Cam Engine and it runs like a beast. It has way more power than the 289 in my other Bronco and I can feel it when I smash the gas pedal.
I’ve lifted this Bronco and opted for 16X10″ Custom Wheels with 315/75/16 Toyo Mud Terrain Tires.
Other than that, this old truck is pretty much stock. This truck also serves as my daily driver. I prefer older trucks mainly because they are easier for me to work on and I understand the mechanics more than modern engines. It’s easy to keep spare parts on hand for when something goes wrong. I can fix most things on this Bronco with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers.
I’ve got plenty of cargo space on the inside – even with the jump seat in the back.
Overall, this is a really solid truck. I know it inside and out and completely trust it – especially in an off-road environment.
So there she is. No bells and whistles. If you’ve got any ideas for her – let me know. I would love to hear them. If you haven’t read my post about the 5 Essential Elements of a BOV you should read it.
