We're back with the 2nd installment of the BDS SEMA Bronco build. BDS installs its all-new Bronco coilover suspension system with FOX Performance Elite Series shocks and BDS extreme duty control arms. It's a key goal in transforming a regular old run-of-the-mill 2.3L manual Ford Bronco 2-door into an awe-inspiring Fire/Rescue-themed truck. Following the progress made in Episode 1, the BDS build team dives deep into the conversion as they begin putting the Bronco back together. Components are being fabricated, parts are coming in from build partners and things are starting to take shape. Project Fire Command will no doubt be a truly unique short wheelbase Bronco.

With the idea this Bronco could be used by the fire chief or command lead on their way to rescue missions, this Bronco needs to to be capable of let's call it "spirited" driving on and offroad. With that in mind we turned to our friends at FOX for their soon to be released latest and greatest for new Bronco, the 2.5 Performance Elite Series coilovers with remote DSC adjustment. Now these coilover build on the race winning technology that FOX builds into each and every shock. These new Performance Elite Series feature an aluminum body for more rapid heat dispersion offroad, massive 7/8” hardened chrome shafts, dual speed compression (DSC) adjustment and are dialed for this Bronco. The shocks are paired with the recently released BDS performance series uniball upper control arms to take advantage of the additional travel making this an unbeatable combination for comfort and capability. These BDS 3.5-4.5" (2Dr) and 3-4" (4Dr) DSC coilover systems will begin shipping December 2021, see more here.

Along with the 4-corner FOX coilovers and front BDS upper control arms, this Bronco is featuring a number of pre-production upgrades to include rear HD adjustable upper and lower control arm and an adjustable rear track bar. For wheel and tires this truck needs a rugged setup that won't let us down no matter how extreme the terrain so we opted for the tired and true King of the Hammers conquering 37x12.50x17 Nitto Trail Grappler tires mounted on 17x9 Method Series 106 beadlock wheels finished in a custom gold/black powder coat to really set them off for this build. These things look killer

With that its back to work, we still a long way to go and a short time to get there. SEMA is right around the corner. A big thanks to our build team for their continued hard work and the build partners in Ford, FOX, Crawltek, Ford Performance, Nitto, Method, RCV, Warn, Rigid, Katzkin, Yakima, CargoGlide, and more. Stay tuned for the updates to come as the BDS team outfits this Bronco into Project Fire Command.
