Maxlider Brothers Customs, from Bloomington, IL, have made a reputation within the restoration recreation for the basic Ford Bronco from the Sixties, a extremely sought-after off-roader lately, these vehicles are over 50 years outdated now, and plenty of of them would require some severe restoration as they have been moderately liable to rust.
The Maxlider Brothers Customs is not going to solely convey that basic Ford Bronco into the 21st century, however for the extra discerning buyer, they provide one thing moderately spectacular, a 4-door, stretched tub that seats 6 folks, however retains the basic, Sixties look … for the 2019 SEMA present they constructed a Roush supercharged Coyote 5.0L 4-door early Bronco with a contemporary 6-speed transmission and tons of customized options.
The response was so overwhelming, Maxlider determined so as to add this 4-door choice to their customized construct lineup so prospects can order this sensible, classic-looking Ford Bronco, and whereas the SEMA present automotive got here with the spectacular Coyote engine and suicide doorways, the shopper model has historically hinged rear doorways and a selection of engine choices.
However with the brand new Ford Bronco turning into obtainable, Maxlider Brothers Customs desires to take the 2021 mannequin to the subsequent degree, you may already order both a two-door or a four-door model straight from Ford, however if you wish to take your model new Ford Bronco actually excessive, and have about $399,000 to spend, you may get a 6×6 conversion carried out.
Within the Ford Bronco choice record from the manufacturing unit, you’ll discover an virtually limitless variety of prospects, however a 3rd axle isn’t certainly one of them, Maxlider gives you this feature beginning in 2022, however in the intervening time all we have now to go on are renders by @innov8designlab that present a Ford Bronco with an extended rear part to accommodate the added wheels on the rear.
The render nonetheless exhibits a big spare wheel on the rear hatch, and a closed rear mattress, the Maxlider Bronco 6×6 isn’t a pickup type conversion like for example, the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6, which is available in at $349,000, a full $50,000 lower than the Bronco 6×6, however the latter will be capable of seat folks within the again I assume, or it simply is perhaps extra baggage house, that is still to be seen as soon as we get to examine an actual one.
For now, there isn’t a single Bronco 6×6 constructed at Maxlider, and there isn’t any data on energy upgrades for the engine both, however it unlikely there gained’t be a rise in energy to offset the extra weight and drag from the additional wheels, we additionally marvel if the 2 extra wheels on the rear will probably be powered or not, bear in mind some 6-wheel conversions are literally a 6×Four technically, however as Maxlider calls this the Bronco 6×6 it could be anticipated all 6 wheels are powered.
