This 1969 Ford Bronco, designed by Ralph Holguin and built with his team at RMD Garage and featured on Velocity network, is a one-of-a-kind Bronco nicknamed "Urban Madness." It underwent a complete frame-off restoration and is powered by a small-block 302ci engine with a Borla throttle-body induction system and custom Borla exhaust system, mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. It has been finished in custom BASF matte Military Green paint with dark Shadow Gray accents and features a handcrafted Bronco grille, cut-down steel doors, a custom one-off roll cage, and is outfitted with Go Rhino front and rear bumpers, WARN winch, Go Rhino running boards and a custom handcrafted hood. This Bronco features a 6" Skyjacker lift and rides on TIS Monster wheels with 35" Open Country MT Toyo tires and 14" Wilwood disc brakes. LED lights surround the entire Bronco HID headlights as well as the upgraded HID taillights. The custom handcrafted leather interior features military-style webbing inserts and a custom dash with Classic Instruments digital gaues and is equipped with a Bluetooth Kicker audio system and a custom SPOD lighting system. An immense amount of man-hours for the fabrication and body work were used to transform this Bronco into "Urban Madness."
