Adam Brown fought for this country. He was a true American patriot and modern day hero who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our freedom in the Middle East. Adam was a Navy SEAL Chief fighting in Afghanistan in 2010 when his team was attacked. Adam was killed in the battle, but his brave actions saved many of other members of SEAL Team Six and he was awarded the Silver Star Medal for Heroism. His passing left a void for many, but none more than to his wife and 2 children. Adam’s remarkable story has been told in the news and in print, find out more about his life and sacrifice at Remember Navy SEAL Adam Brown or in the book Fearless.
The Bronco Project came about as an opportunity to rebuild/restore Adam’s first car, a 1991 Ford Bronco. This Bronco build is a tribute to Adam being overhauled as a gift for his 2 kids, Nathan and Savannah. This project is just a small piece of the memory of Adam Brown and features a number of cool and custom components in his honor along with countless hours invested by the build team at RKM Performance.
The initial build plan was to restore the Bronco, but after the team began discussing Adam’s life and what would be a worthy tribute, they pulled out all of the stops and transformed it into what you see today. This frame off build includes a 5.0L Coyote engine putting out north of 400 horses, a Transzilla F56 6-speed manual transmission, 241 GM t-case, and built front and rear axles. Exterior mods include a custom fiberglass front clip and flared fender assembly, custom bumpers, Rigid LED Lighting, Warn winch, and a matte desert tan paint scheme. Interior changes include a full rollcage, racing seats, and a one-off custom dash with cockpit influenced gauges and switch panel. For the suspension, we (BDS) supplied 4” Extended Radius Arm Suspension Lift Kit with dual 5500-series shocks and rear leaf springs to go under this truck allowing for enough clearance for 38×15.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers and 18” Fuel Hostages to be installed. After being completed in late October of this year, the truck was debuted at the RK Motors Collector Car Auction with amazing response.
BDS Suspension is honored to be a part of this project and thankful for the opportunity to give back to the brave men and women service this great country and protecting our freedom. God bless you all!
