OBS BRaptor – a 1996 Ford Bronco Pre-runner with a Modern F150 Front End
The Ford Bronco has always been a popular choice among off-road enthusiasts, thanks to its impressive off-road potential and badass design. The original Bronco, the OBS (which stands for “Old Body Style”), was produced from 1991 to 1996. Despite being out of production for over 20 years, the OBS Bronco remains a popular choice among pre-runner builders and off-road racing fans.
This freshly painted red 1996 OBS Ford Bronco prerunner is owned and built by Koly, an off-road enthusiast and a gearhead. He swapped out the original engine for a Chevy LS 6.0L LQ9 motor and added a new transmission to maximize performance and reliability.
This Bronco was built in the best traditions of desert racing. Except for the long travel 4-link suspension, full cage and racing buckets, it features 3″ axles late model F150 Raptor front end, F150 taillights, and dash panel. It rides on KR3 Method rims wrapped in massive 40” Baja off-road tires.
The 1991-1996 Ford Bronco remains a popular choice for off-roaders thanks to its V8 engine, 4×4 capabilities, and of course the rugged design. Even though it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the newer models, its simplicity is what makes it appealing to many enthusiasts.

Looks pretty badass! OBS is the best Bronco ever for any kid of the 90s
The wheels look a little bit too big to my taste, but sick build for sure!
