The Bronco Frame Is Rebuilt and Ready! Time For A New Suspension: Part 3
In a short period, the Sea Foam Beach Cruiser Bronco project has progressed dramatically, thanks to Music City Trucks’ dedication to getting it ready for SEMA. Fortunately, for this portion of the build, they had some help from the legendary Bronco experts in James Duff, who have been around for 54 years, specializing in aftermarket parts for the Ford Bronco.
The last time you saw the Bronco, the guys had rebuilt the entire body with sheet metal from Dennis Carpenter, which was a huge milestone. Now, their focus is on the chassis from Throttle Down Kustoms and the suspension from James Duff. With high-quality parts for the Beach Cruiser taking up space in their garage, the guys were eager to get to work and convert their visions to reality.
Music City Trucks had a special visit from Michael Duff, AKA Monster Mike, the General Manager of James Duff Inc., owner of Bronco Garage, and the Monster Garage Bronco built by Jesse James. Monster Mike spent a few days in the studio to help transform the Beach Cruiser’s presence in our garage from a large piece of floating sheet metal to the iconic Bronco we all know and love.
They did this with a durable James Duff Dual Sport Monster High Performance 2.5″ Suspension System. It features a dual triangulated 4-link rear suspension, T-rex radius arms, MS2020 high-performance shocks, Heim steering system, and front & rear sway bars. It’ll allow the Bronco to speed down the highway effortlessly with its supercharged Coyote, cruise slowly down the beach, and handle any terrain thrown its way with upgraded handling and agility. Did we mention how good it’ll look in the process?
Once they wrapped up the suspension and chassis, Music City Trucks finished welding the sheet metal, getting it gapped and ready for bodywork. This allows them to move onto their first mock-up of the engine, transmission, transfer case, steering, and brakes before tearing it apart again to powder coat the frame and paint the body.
