The Early Bronco, Bronco II & Ranger Specialists
Since 1984, we've been unleashing the potential of these great vehicles with suspension upgrades, engine conversions and a wide range of accessories. Many have overlooked the value of this new generation of agile smaller trucks and SUVs. With years of experience in Early Broncos, we could see the potential in the Bronco II & Ranger. We have believed in these versatile rigs from the beginning and made Fords our one and only specialty.

The Basic History
The Ranger 4x4 debuted in 1982 as a two wheel drive model with a 2.3L and a 6.75" rear axle. In 1983, the four wheel drive version, as well as the Supercab, came onto the scene. Followed in 1984, by the Bronco II, both were offered with a Dana 28 front axle and a 7.5" rear. The Bronco II came with the 2.8L carbureted V6. Rangers were powered by either a 2.3L four cylinder or the V6. In '86, the V6 increased in size to a 2.9L, and became fuel injected. Along with a mild front end restyle in '89, a 170 hp 4.0L V6 became optional in the Ranger, and the axles in these trucks were upgraded to a Dana 35 front, and an 8.8" Rear. In 1989, both the Ranger and Bronco II received facelifts in the form of a new front clip and interior design. The Bronco II continued on with the 2.9L until '90, when it was replaced by the Explorer.

The Explorer debuted with the '91 model year, with the 4.0L as the only available engine. They also featured the Dana 35 front end, and the 8.8 rear, with the leaf springs under the axle. In '93, the Ranger received another facelift with a new body style. In '95 Ford redesigned the Explorer with A-arm/Torsion Bar front suspension, with a redesigned engine crossmember to ease the installation of the 215 hp 5.0L V8.

For '98, a new 205 hp single overhead cam (SOHC) 4.0 became optional. The Ranger redesign came in '98, when it received the same suspension changes, but continued with the optional 170 hp 4.0L engine. Due to the complexity and variety of options on of these years, we have no plans to design suspension systems for them. We have our hands full with 1966-97 Model years at this point!
