With an all-new Ford Bronco on the way for 2020, interest in past iterations of the rugged SUV only seems to have spiked, making this a great time for some primo Bronco content. The latest contestant for “most awesome use of an old Ford Bronco ever” comes from Hoonigan’s Daily Transmission video series, and includes footage of a 1991 Bronco prerunner doing several spectacular jumps outside the Donut Garage.
We’d advise you not to try this in your bone-stock Ford F-150 Raptor.
Far from original, this ’91 Ford Bronco is powered by a Corvette-sourced V8 with a ludicrous 8-into-1-style exhaust header that bolts up to a monstrously big pipe. It rides on coilovers that, according to owner Michael Cox, were purchased from a man outside a strip club about 30 years ago. Old though they may be, those shocks seem to be holding up okay; Cox’s Bronco has raced in the Stadium Super Trucks series without crumpling, although he does admit that the SUV’s extreme front camber was an unintended side effect of SST abuse.
We can hardly wait for the 2020 Ford Bronco to launch, inviting a new round of thrill-seeking daredevils to build similarly mental Bronco prerunners to do all manner of hoonigan-y things. But for now, be sure to catch episode 229 of Hoonigan’s Daily Transmission series above to watch Michael Cox take flight in his ’91 Ford Bronco SUV.
