Brief History Of The Ford Bronco
/ 1st Generation
1966 - 1977
In a press release months prior to its launch, Ford Vice President Donald N. Frey said, “We believe the Bronco will offer customers new standards in this type of vehicle including ruggedness, maneuverability, and ‘go anywhere’ roadability.”
Afterward, an optional 289 V-8 engine was introduced in April 1966, however the only engine offered at the time of the vehicle's introduction in late 1965 was a six-cylinder.
1978 - 1979
The renowned full-size two-door 4x4 market was the focus of the second-generation Bronco, which expanded in every dimension. At this time the Chevy Blazer/GMC Jimmy, Dodge Ramcharger/Plymouth Trailduster, and Jeep Cherokee were battling it out.
As a result of being full-size, the Bronco now mostly shared parts with the F-Series starting with the B-pillar onward. Additionally, it signaled the complete removal of the top. There was a fixed canopy over the front two passengers, but the fiberglass top covering the cargo space and back seats could still be unbolted and removed.
1980 - 1986
Along with the rest of the F-Series series, the second-generation Bronco was revised in 1980. The introduction of Dana's innovative "Twin Traction Beam" (TTB) front axle, the first independent front suspension offered on a full-size 4x4 and was a significant advancement.
A TTB axle mimics a solid axle when it is not articulated, but the passenger side axle's intermediate shaft and universal joint allow each side to move independently on two pivot points. The wheels may react to dips and bumps more swiftly because of the single traction beam's advantage of having less spring weight than a full solid axle.
1987 - 1991
The fourth-generation Bronco was actually what we'd currently refer to as a mid-cycle upgrade, although new front sheet metal and an updated interior largely covered it up. The fundamental platform that debuted in 1980 would serve as the foundation for all ensuing generations of full-size Broncos.
The top engine remained the carbureted 351, but the base 300-cubic-inch inline-six now had fuel injection as well. In 1988, the 351 adopted a similar intake manifold that resembled the 5.0-liter's asymmetrical, long-runner design.
1992 - 1996
This Bronco iteration, which was based on the ninth-generation F-series chassis, continued to provide the same powertrain options. The front end looked more contemporary and aerodynamic while maintaining a generally strong and imposing presence thanks to the slightly sloping leading edge of the hood and a bigger grille that smoothed the internal edge of the headlamps' ordinarily square shape. It performed a fantastic job of updating the Bronco's fundamental design, which had remained mostly untouched since 1980.
The full-size Bronco's final five years of production had average annual sales of 32,000, but when Ford created a new F-150 for 1997, it couldn't find room in the lineup for a full-size two-door SUV.
What Is Paint Protection Film ( AKA Clear Bra)?
Paint protection film also known as “clear bra” or PPF, is a roughly 8 mm thick layer of clear protective film (typically made out of urethane or polyurethane) that can be installed on top of your vehicle. It protects the original paint from a wide range of problematic issues. Most have a self-healing property that allows the film to re-adhere to itself when reintroduced to heat(a hot sunny day or passing through a hot car wash).
The first PPF was created by 3M military usage during the Vietnam war. It was applied to helicopter blades to prevent damage from debris and surface damage in battle. Because of its’ ability to form a tight and protective bond with any shape, it was an instant success. Afterward, it soon started becoming a staple for keeping vehicles in excellent condition. Its has risen in popularity in recent years because of the easily attained high-quality results it produces. We are proud to be one of the best professional paint protection film installers in the area!
Why We Chose To Install Paint Protection Film
Our vehicles are significant investments. Basically, everyone wants it to last as long as possible while still looking and performing at peak potential. The entire purpose of PPF is to keep your car looking better for longer. It provides a barrier between your original paint and everything in the world that wants to damage it. We aren’t trying to mislead you, it’s not going to make your vehicle indestructible but it does stop a large number of day-to-day accidents from permanently damaging your vehicle. We outline some of the main benefits below but remember that there any many more! Feel free to contact us for a free quote or to learn about more benefits of these films!
Shield your automobile from scratches.
Excellent protection against scratches and swirl spots on the underlying paint. Stray branches, car washes, and road debris can all easily scratch your vehicles’ paint. Preventative PPF packages are less expensive and more efficient than repairing paint imperfections.
PPF is extremely versatile that can be used on door edges, headlights, door handles, and mirrors. Our premium PPF can keep your car looking great for years to come.
Protection From Chemical Deterioration
Acid rain, tree sap, some washing soap, and bird droppings: these are just some of the substances that have the ability to permanently damage your vehicles’ paint job and leave bare metal exposed to the weather.
Fewer Car Washes
Nothing increases the “wow factor” of a vehicle like a pristine paint job. However, over time this new car sheen wears off and you must routinely wash or wax to restore the brilliance. The majority of automobile protection films keep out road grime, grit, and filth. If dirt adheres to the film, you can erase it with a simple wipe and won’t need to give your car a thorough wash, cutting down on maintenance time while getting superior results.
Retain Resale Value
The four-point rating system employed by appraisers normally assigns each used automobile a rating of Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor. A few slight dings, scratches, chips, or abrasions might make the difference between receiving a “Fair,” “Good,” or “Poor” score.
Customers dislike seeing swirled and chipped paint on vehicles. The same holds true if there are rock chips and bug stains on the car’s front surface. If the automobile surface is not covered, wear and tear brought on by a variety of components will most certainly result in much shorter service life. The lack of a barrier of protection is likely to reduce the car’s resale value.
Self Healing Attributes
The film’s many layers work together to prevent and repair surface-level damage to car paint. The scratch-resistant urethane coating guards against deterioration. When exposed to heat, the self-healing paint protection returns to its lowest energy level. Therefore, washing the automobile with warm water or leaving it in the sun will help to cure minor dents or dings.
