• This ProRunner Upgrade Makes the Ford Bronco What it Was Always Supposed to Be

APG illustrates how to convert an ordinary Bronco into a Raptor-like equivalent

LISTEN 02:31

Since the 1960s, the Bronco SUV has set the bar for off-roading, and the most recent sixth-generation models are no exception. Relaunched in 2021, after a long hiatus of over two decades, the Bronco is still one of the least expensive off-road champs in the country. However, if you are a professional or a wannabe, you may have to opt for the Bronco Raptor, which debuted in January 2022. However, because of the limited production and higher price than the regular Bronco, getting your hands on one will be challenging before they are all gone. But worry no more; Automotive Performance Group, or APG, has developed an aftermarket off-road performance package, which the brand claims to be elevating the best out of the standard Bronco.

Based in California, APG is also well known for its Ford Ranger ProRunner model, and similarly, the Bronco conversion has been named ProRunner, too, as a part of the series. The conversion kit adds massive 40-inch tires, carbon fiber parts, and long-travel suspension, among other upgrades.

The ProRunner package includes carbon fiber front and rear fenders, increasing the width to 14 inches over the standard dimension. However, there are three options for the exposed-carbon fender flare: three-quarters-inch, three-inch, and five-inch. APG ensures that the carbon fiber parts offer OEM-level durability, fit, and finish.

One of the essential upgrades is the suspension system, which is claimed to behave well, even on the tarmac. The long-travel suspension system has a 3.5-inch wider billet upper and boxed lower control arms, elevated and strengthened front shock towers, along with well-built steering tie rods. The damping is controlled by 3.0-inch King Race Series coilovers, an APG-manufactured track bar, and 22.5-inch triple bypass shocks.

The suspension package increases the wheel travel by up to 14.5 inches with the 40-inch tires. However, with the 37-inch tires, the travel increases to 16 inches. With the ProRunner conversion package, you will also have added performance upgrades, which include a wider seven-inch Ultimate Dana 60 axle at the rear, Dana 44 front drive unit, and 300M HD RCV axles.
