1991 Ford Bronco ‘Operation Fearless’

Feb 26, 2018

By now, everyone should be familiar with the heroics of SEAL Team Six – the Navy’s premier counter-terrorism unit. Unfortunately, their larger-than-life exploits are sometimes peppered with tragedy. For instance, one member of that team, Adam Brown, was killed in battle fighting in Afghanistan in 2010. As a tribute to the fallen hero (and a gift for his surviving children), RK Performance has rebuilt his first car – a 1991 Ford Bronco they’ve dubbed ‘Operation Fearless.’

Initially, the project was just to restore the Bronco to its original condition – but RK Performance saw fit to do Brown’s memory proper justice by building the hulking beast you see before you today. The build included dropping in a 400-horsepower 5.0-liter Coyote engine, swapping in a Transzilla F56 6-speed manual transmission, new front and rear axles, Rigid LED lighting, a WARN winch – and that’s just the outside. In the cabin, they beefed this Bronco up with a custom one-off cockpit-inspired dash, a full roll cage, and racing seats. They even gave the suspension a complete overhaul, adding a BDS-supplied 4” Extended Radius Arm Suspension Lift Kit with dual 5500-series shocks and rear leaf springs. If there is a vehicle more fitting as a tribute to a fallen Navy SEAL, American hero, and father, we’ve yet to come across it.
