The Ford Bronco Operation Fearless restored a 1991 Ford Bronco in memory of a fallen hero: Adam Brown. As a member of SEAL Team Six (the same one that took out Bin Laden), Adam served in Afghanistan. During his tour, he was killed in battle while saving many of his team members. His actions won the Silver Star Medal for Heroism. He left behind his SEAL brothers, but also his wife and two young children.
Adam’s first car was a 1991 Ford Bronco. The idea behind Operation Fearless was to restore the bronco as a tribute to Adam, but as RKM Performance got into the project, they realized that a simple restoration just wouldn’t do justice. The frame off build took a 5.0L Coyote engine, capable of more than 400 horsepower, and attached it to a Transzilla F56 6-speed manual transmission with a 241 GM t-case. The exterior was modded with custom fiberglass front clip and a flared fender assembly as well as custom bumpers, Rigid LED Lighting, a Warn winch, and a matte desert tan paint scheme. A full rollcage was added in conjunction with racing seats and a one-off custom dash. The suspension consists of a four-inch extended radius arms suspension lift kit with dual 5500-series shocks and rear leaf springs to go under the truck. The lift gave enough room to install 38×15.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers and 18-inch Fuel Hostages.
The Bronco was auctioned off with incredible success, with proceeds going to support Adam’s family.
