I remember seeing this thing over a year ago now.
I see that since then theyve learned the correct way to mount Boggers on the truck :rolleyes:

How did that thing become a BOTM on MBB? Was it voted on or was it just picked by Bryan...I don't remember?

Was it voted on or was it just picked by Bryan...I don't remember?I can't remember,but i'm sure it had something to do with someones desire to be associated with what they figured was a celebrity. Frankly, I found it an insult that someone who never even had a word of contribution to the site,was voted for.

:stupid I think it's just good to see a company (hell any company) use a bronco for their advertisement rig. It coulda been another burban or escalade like everybody else. I don't think it's rubicon material by a long shot, but we got plenty of those right here..:shrug I do agree it's not FOTM material but I just think it's cool anytime (which like I already said is rare) someone uses a Bronco for their company shit! :thumbup **just a different perspective I s'pose.**

It is a pretty sharp bronco but everthing else (stereo junk) in it is a waste.

POSER!!

How is it a waste? The vehicle was designed for SPL competitions. It doesnt ever get driven...the doors are welded shut for one and two, the engine is just there to run the alternators which charge the 16v battery array.

Why is it a waste when I can see more than one member on this site that has 35's on their truck and it never leaves the pavement...how is that not more wasteful? *end rant*

On another note, that Bronco has been retired and Team Gates has left Kicker to join team JBL. With the new amps that Crown desigend for JBL in use, i"m excited to see their new work. I just got my Christmas card from Alma yesterday and she seemd pretty pumped about it. Keep your eyes open for whats coming!

I would much rather look at a bronco than a ricer.

It's just one big speaker!

By the way I wonder what the two yellow tie downs are for going across the back? To keep the top from being blowed off?

Hey Hey.....lol I have been at some of the same competitions they have (with my T-bird),and it is a really nice Bronco. I'm with BLAZE on this one.I am proud to see someone using a Bronco to build a national show truck. In '95 I was ranked 16th in the world with my car.It's all in "whatever floats your boat"!! :rockon

:stupid i'm not even gonna point fingers at you close minded hypocrites. that bronco kicks ass. you could get a lot of ***** with it, its better than someone doing that to a ricer, loud stuff kicks ass, and last time i checked Alma Gates isn't a member here so i don't think we'll be seeing it in FOTM.

your exactly right! In 2001, they had the current record, 171.1dB (Extreme 13+), but took second at Finals. It has 48 KICKER solo-baric 10 inch woofers, Lexan windsheild. OUTSTANDING!!!

i think the fotm was brought up, because at that other site, brian seemed to pick the people he thought should get it at first, befroe the site grew to be popular

well i like the bronco. and for one Briedlo the doors are not welded shut (i just saw it at a comp 2-3 weeks ago) and that thing kicks ass!!
i remember seeing that on Ripleys for being the worlds loudest truck. and it really does
make your hair stand up. it is driveable, may not be very comfortable but driveable.

NOBS!
12-15-2003, 11:45 PM
It has it's claim to fame,I'll give it that.

I do think,if they were to show up here you guys would be falling all over yoursevles to kiss some serious ass, judging from the responses already.

To each his own, I don't have a radio in my bronco anymore, couldn't hear it anyway. I'm sure I could hear that system over my loud exhaust and swamper hum but that extra weight would not work well on the trails. I think it's a cool truck and definately one of the most expensive broncos out there. Fullsize of the month? Oscar has got that truck beat in my mind!
