At last year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, Vaughn Gittin Jr’s companies RTR Vehicles and Fun-Haver Off-Road got together to create the jacked-up, widebody Bronco RTR Fun-Runner.
However, in a very McLaren-esque manner, at this year’s SEMA show we have been presented with the even more hardcore Bronco RTR Fun-Runner LT.
Of course, LT doesn’t stand for ‘Longtail’ in this instance. Instead, it should be read as ‘Long Travel’ as the Fun-Runner LT gets portal axles and a mad suspension kit with a full 18-inches of travel at the rear and 16-inches up front. Oh, and there are HUGE 42-inch tires to top it off. Yikes.
RTR and Fun-Haver claim that the LT is now capable of tackling ‘King of the Hammers-like terrain’ while still remaining ‘road-friendly.’ We’re also told that it’ll soon be available for customers to buy.
In addition to the suspension upgrades, the LT gets Fun-Haver fiberglass wide arches, modular front bumpers, high-clearance rear bumpers, and weld-on rock sliders. The wheels are 20-inch units (which gives some context to how large those tires are) and there’s an MBRP exhaust system to allow the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine to breathe easier.
The whole thing is based on a 2022 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Badlands, although inside the seats are swapped for four Recaros and above the windscreen is a brilliant set of spotlights. There’s also an RTR grille and (thankfully) a new hydraulic steering system that should allow you to turn the wheel with those monster truck tires down below.
Is the LT your dream Bronco?
