I was expecting something else, LOL! My Bronco has air bumpers, well air in them. They are the storage tanks for the Broncoair kit.

I bought a kit that uses a york style compressor. They sell a pulley which hsa a v-belt groove and the serpentine belt groove for the PS pump and the bracket bolts on top of factory AC pump.




Other side of 5.0 engine, showing the compressor. Inlet to the compressor goes into the top half of the air box assembly.

On the other fenderwell I have the pressure swtich with a bleed-off for the pump, check valve, and air drier then 1/2" plastic air line goes to the front ans rear bumpers with a 1/4 turn shut off valve at both ends. The quick connects are located between the tubes of the bumpers. If you look really close you can see them in the previous pics.

It's a sweet ride. I like the big black and awesome look. What tire and wheel combo do you run, 6" lift?

i have a broncoair bumper on my 97 350 we built, love it except i wasnt happy with the powdercoat they did, its already starting to bubble and i dont winter drive my truck either, maybe i got a bad coating job on mine other than that no complaints whatsoever, totally worth the money, and the bumper looks bad a**
