In a new video series, BDS Suspension documents its Ford Bronco pickup truck build, which debuted in Ford’s booth at the SEMA Show this week. Named Fire Command Bronco, the 2-door Bronco turned fire/rescue truck is ready at a moment’s notice to go off-road for any emergency, the builders said.
The backwoods fire/rescue-themed Bronco is built to rush the fire chief or rescue lead ahead of heavier equipment to assess each situation and build a tactical plan of attack for the team.
Watch the first episode above highlighting the early stages of the build, including the creation of the “half cab” that recalls Broncos used by rural fire departments in years gone by.
Fire Command Bronco is outfitted with suspension upgrades with oversized wheels and tires, dual winches, communications equipment, emergency lighting, first aid, tools and more.
The suspension consists of FOX Performance Elite fully adjustable coilovers with DSC and BDS high-clearance tubular control arms. Finishing off the half-top conversion is a bottom-hinged drop tailgate that replaces the stock side-hinged design.
