Navy Seal, Adam Brown was a son, a husband, a father to two children, a hero and probably so much more. In 2010, Brown was a Navy SEAL Chief fighting in Afghanistan when his team was attacked. During the attack, Adam lost his life, but his courageous actions saved many of other members of SEAL Team Six. For this, he was awarded the Silver Star Medal for Heroism. Brown’s tale is remarkable story of selflessness in the face of danger. Deserving of a Silver Star Medal and so much more.
Now, you might be wondering what a 1991 Ford Bronco has to do with Adam Brown and his story. Well, to honor Brown’s life and heroism, the ‘Operation Fearless’ project came about as an opportunity to rebuild/restore Adam’s first car, a 1991 Ford Bronco. The Bronco rebuild is not only a tribute to Adam, but it is also a gift for his 2 kids, Nathan and Savannah. What an awesome way to remember their father.
Via BDS Suspension:
The initial build plan was to restore the Bronco, but after the team began discussing Adam’s life and what would be a worthy tribute, they pulled out all of the stops and transformed it into what you see today. This frame off build includes a 5.0L Coyote engine putting out north of 400 horses, a Transzilla F56 6-speed manual transmission, 241 GM t-case, and built front and rear axles. Exterior mods include a custom fiberglass front clip and flared fender assembly, custom bumpers, Rigid LED Lighting, Warn winch, and a matte desert tan paint scheme. Interior changes include a full rollcage, racing seats, and a one-off custom dash with cockpit influenced gauges and switch panel. For the suspension, we (BDS) supplied 4” Extended Radius Arm Suspension Lift Kit with dual 5500-series shocks and rear leaf springs to go under this truck allowing for enough clearance for 38×15.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers and 18” Fuel Hostages to be installed.
