RC 2nd Gen Ford Bronco Is a Miniature Dream Ride

By -

Traxxas’ latest is one incredibly capable, incredibly detailed Ford Bronco that looks and drives like the real thing.

If you’re a regular here at FTE, you already know that pretty much our entire readership (us included) are massive fans of the 2nd gen Ford Bronco. The two-year only model ushered in a new era for Ford’s off-road ‘ute, combining the best of both worlds – the iconic F-150 with the utility of, well, a sport utility vehicle. And now, you can live our your 2nd gen Ford Bronco dreams on a smaller scale, thanks to the geniuses at Traxxas.

Because the maker of all things remote-controlled has now added this incredibly detailed, fully licensed 1979 Ford Bronco replica to their stable. And even better, it sits on their capable TRX-4 chassis. That means loads of advanced goodies like portal axles, steel frame rails, aluminum shocks, steel links, and an adjustable wheelbase. All of which adds up to an RC car fully capable of some hardcore wheeling. Just like your life-size Ford Bronco!

Sitting on top of that chassis, of course, is a body painstakingly detailed to resemble the original. Little things like wiper arms, chrome trim, side market lights, and even a 3D grille are all here. Heck, you can even add on a spare tire and push bar, if you so desire. Take a look at the pictures, and you’d be forgiven if you thought this was in fact the real thing.

All of which makes this TRX-4 Ford Bronco the ultimate adult toy. Something you can take to the beach and go “rock crawling” with while the kids play in the water. And we’re betting that you’ll probably make a few new friends of all ages while you’re there, too!
